How it works
The light penetrates into the deeper layers of the skin (dermis) where collagen production occurs. The heating of the collagen causes it to remodel itself. Histology slides show that the remodelling begins at approximately 6 weeks. While some clients have felt a change in texture after one treatment, results may take up to 6 months to see.
How many treatments?
Most guests should plan on five treatments at three to four week intervals.
Does it hurt?
Most guests would describe it as a warm, tingling sensation and not painful. No topical anesthesia or medication is required. These are gradual, relatively painless, fast treatments.
What can I expect after my treatment?
The skin may be pink or slightly red. There may be some mild swelling and temporary tenderness along the jaw line. You may be quite red after your treatment, however we give all of our guests a Colorescience application so you never leave looking like you have had a treatment.
How long is a session?
Each session takes approx. 20-30 minutes depending on the area.
What areas can be treated?
Anywhere on the body with loose skin.
Can I combine it with other treatments?
Skin Tightening can be combined with many other procedures like BBL for photo damage, Botox®, acne treatments, microneedling and injectable fillers.
