Laser Skin Tightening
People guess our age by the condition of our skin. Skin is the first and most significant part to show the signs of ageing. Our skin gets loose and wrinkles form on it with ageing. Many measures can be taken to slow down this process and keep our skin youthful for longer periods of time. We can do regular exercise, take care of our diet, protect our skin from the sun, and so on. These measures will go a long way to make us look younger, but fine lines and wrinkles will find their space, eventually.
Fortunately, there is a reliable method to have smooth and youthful skin without any surgery. This method is called laser skin tightening or laser skin resurfacing. Laser light is used in this method to peel off the old skin and stimulate the collagen to form new, youthful and tight skin.
The procedure of laser skin tightening is very simple. An anesthetic cream is applied to the skin to make the procedure comfortable and pain free. Then your dermatologist or technician will apply laser to the required surface with a wand like tool. You will not feel any pain; it just feels like snapping of a rubber band across your skin.
This will cause the outer layer of the skin, also called the epidermis, to peel off. You will be given an ointment to protect your skin during the healing process. You should be extra cautious to protect your skin from sun during this period. Your skin will look pink or reddish for a few weeks, showing that the new skin is being formed.
Many people resume their work within a week. Your skin will continue to improve for about a year. It’s a good idea to take care of your skin now, if you haven’t taken care of it in the past.
It should be clear that laser skin tightening has its limitations. It is effective for fine lines and mild wrinkles, but it is not effective for deep wrinkles and loose, sagging skin. If your skin is very loose, a surgical facelift is a procedure of choice for you.
