Skin Tightening Q & A


What is Laser Skin Tightening?

Your skin begins to show its first signs of aging when you reach your late 20s or early 30s. The first indications include wrinkles, loss of elasticity, and a reduction in the amount of collagen your body produces.

Chronological and environmental influences cause your skin to age; however, sun exposure is usually one of the most significant factors in these changes.

Laser skin tightening is a procedure that reduces irregularities on your face, restoring your skin’s contour and appearance.

With focused laser light, the aestheticians at Bello Corpo Med Spa can safely treat problem areas without injuring the surrounding area. That allows for quicker healing and less downtime.

How is Laser Skin Tightening Performed?

Your Bello Corpo aesthetician directs a low-level laser light beam at the irregular skin. Short, concentrated pulsating beams of light remove blemished skin layer by layer. The light is delivered in a grid pattern, and the laser heats the cells until they erupt. This process also stimulates the growth of new collagen fibers.

The Bello Corpo aestheticians use several types of lasers for laser skin tightening procedures, depending on the color of the tissue treated and the specific procedure you receive.

What Should You Expect From a Laser Skin Tightening Treatment?

Even though your skin encounters more light than any other organ, it still reacts well to red and near-infrared wavelengths.

These wavelengths cause increased blood flow to the targeted area. Stem cells are also activated, which allows for greater tissue repair and healing.

Not only does laser skin tightening improve the appearance of wrinkles, but it also eliminates scars and helps heal burns. Laser skin tightening can even treat vitiligo by increasing pigmentation. Inflammatory diseases like psoriasis also improve through the use of laser skin tightening.

You should be acne-free before you undergo the procedure. Laser treatments are noninvasive and virtually absent of side effects, but you should try and avoid sun exposure for at least three months following your laser skin tightening procedure.
