What is Laser Skin Tightening?

Laser skin tightening is a skin rejuvenation treatment which removes damaged layers of skin and stimulates the production of collagen and new skin cells, resulting in smoother, younger and healthier looking skin.

Skin tightening can be used to treat many areas of the body including:

  • Abdomen - stretched postnatal skin, fatty deposits, aging skin tone
  • Breasts & Chest - Soft, sagging breasts or stretched skin due to breast feeding
  • Buttocks - Flattened bottom cheeks, cellulite and fatty deposits
  • Thighs - Cellulite and fatty thigh deposits
  • Jowls & Neck - Sagging facial tissue around the cheeks, jawline and neck.

In order to get the best results from laser skin tightening, it is important to understand what needs to be done prior to the treatment.

This will ensure that you are physically and mentally prepared for the skin tightening, resulting in a safer and more effective procedure.

What the skin care specialist will ask  

Before you have a laser skin tightening treatment, you will be asked to book a consultation at the skin clinic. During this appointment, you will most likely:

Be asked about your medical history This includes any past cosmetic procedures, current or past medications and any medical conditions you may have.
Undergo a quick physical exam Your specialist will inspect your skin and the area to be treated. This will help determine how to tailor the skin tightening treatment to your requirements and how your physical features - such as skin tone and thickness - might affect your results.
Discuss your expectations

During the consultation at the skin clinic, it’s important to talk to your specialist about your expectations and aesthetic goals as well as the potential risks associated with laser skin tightening.

Before you undergo the treatment, make sure you understand the recovery time and what your results might be.


Things to do before a laser skin tightening treatment

Before and during your skin tightening treatments, your specialist may ask you to:

  • Refrain from tanning during your treatments
  • If sun exposure cannot be avoided, use sunscreen (at least SPF 30) to protect your skin
  • Wait 2 weeks before doing any skin tightening if you have a tan, as tanned skin will make your laser skin tightening treatments ineffective
  • Avoid using fragrant lotions or perfumes the day of your treatment
  • Shave any hair in the treatment area a day before your skin tightening session

REMEMBER: In order to ensure the most effective and safe results, it is very important to follow the pre and post-treatment care instructions given to you at the skin clinic.
