Calgary Cynosure Laser

Cynosure Skin Tightening

With age our skin naturally loses elasticity but our Calgary skin clinic offers a safe way of slowing down the process, restoring your youthful appearance almost instantly.

Laser skin tightening procedures have gained popularity in the past few years because they provide an effective, non-surgical alternative to more invasive procedures for improving the quality and elasticity of your skin.

What is Laser Skin Tightening Skin Care?

Laser skin tightening is a minimally-invasive procedure used to improve skin elasticity and the appearance of unwanted wrinkles. This process uses an infrared source (laser) to heat up the dermis, causing the skin to increase collagen production as well as contract immediately.

When To Consider Skin Tightening

Laser skin tightening is very effective in reducing the appearance of unwanted wrinkles, scars and even stretch marks. You may want to consider it if:

  • You are experiencing mild-moderate loose skin on your face, neck, arms or abdomen
  • You wish to get rid of any residual skin laxity resulting from a surgical procedure
  • You want to improve the quality of your skin
  • You don’t wish to undergo more invasive, surgical procedures to correct skin laxity

Pros & Cons of Laser Skin Tightening

Whenever you are considering a cosmetic skin care procedure, regardless of how minimally invasive, it is important to understand the costs and benefits so that you can make a fully-informed decision about which treatment is right for you.

  • Minimally-invasive, safe skin tightening procedure
  • Requires little to no downtime and has minimal side effects
  • Can be used for all skin types
  • Unlike other skin care procedures which make superficial changes to your skin, laser skin tightening works by stimulating collagen regeneration, giving long-lasting results
  • No incisions or injections required
  • Immediate results with improvements over the course of several months
  • Less dramatic or extensive results than those obtained by more invasive skin care treatments such as facelifts
  • Multiple treatments (approximately 3-5) are required for optimal results
  • Temporary side effects such as changes to skin color, warm skin or localized bruising are possible


Are You A Suitable Candidate For Laser Skin Tightening?

Laser skin tightening is an appropriate treatment for patients with all skin types and tones who wish to achieve effective results without painful surgery and a lengthy recovery.

However, you should consult with your skin care specialist prior to any treatment if you:

  • Are pregnant
  • Are prone to herpes outbreaks
  • Have any lesions on the areas that you wish to be treated

Laser Skin Tightening Procedure

At our Calgary skin care clinic, we offer Cynosure skin tightening treatments. It works by firming the skin while improving its overall texture. Much like IPL, Cynosure laser works by directing a beam of light directly into the dermis layer, stimulating the production of collagen and tightening the skin.

How Cynosure Laser Skin Treatment Works

The treatment area will be exposed to the laser beam, gently destroying any damaged or old skin cells.

It will also stimulate the growth of collagen and your body’s natural healing process to produce new, fresh skin cells for a more youthful appearance.

What results can I expect
  • Smoother, fresher looking skin
  • Improved skin tone/texture
  • Reduced wrinkles
  • Improved appearance of scars/stretch marks
Is the skin tightening procedure painful? The treatment is tolerated very well by most of our patients. A topical anesthetic is applied to the treatment area prior to the laser to minimize discomfort.
Number of treatments required

This is highly dependable on your skin type and objectives.

However, typically you will require 3-5 skin care sessions held 2-6 weeks apart.

Will there be any side-effects?

After the Cynosure laser skin treatment, you may experience temporary:

  • Redness
  • Flaky skin
  • Itchiness
  • Swelling
Are there any post-treatment requirements? During the period of your laser treatments, it is best to avoid strong sunlight and use SPF 30 sunblock. Our skin care specialists will be able to best advise you on any post-treatment care.
