One of the things that sucks with age is that your skin starts to sag, you lose that elasticity, but there is a laser skin tightening treatment that can help reduce the signs of aging that can be used on men and women of all skin types and skin tones who wish to achieve dramatic results without painful surgery and lengthy recovery times.
If you want to have your skin tightened, this laser skin tightening technique is minimally invasive that be right for you. This non-surgical process uses an infrared light laser that heats the collagen under your skin's surface causing your skin to contract or tighten. If you have your facial skin tightened, you will notice immediate results and there is no downtime. Additional skin tightening occurs over the course of a few months, but optimal results will usually require two or three treatments about a month apart.

Laser skin tightening can help you achieve younger-looking, smoother skin without undergoing expensive surgeries such as a face lift or a tummy tuck ? and the best news is that the results won't fade after a few months.

But facial skin tightening is less expensive than invasive surgeries.
If you choose to have laser skin tightening here are a few dos and don'ts that you should do before treatment:
Before your treatment you should avoid direct sun exposure or sun tanning booths for two or more weeks
You should not any oral acne medications such as acutane or similar for at least six months before your laser treatment
You should not use of topical acne medications such as retinol, retin-A or similar for 7 days before your laser treatment
The day of your procedure you wash and dry your skin thoroughly so that you remove any cosmetics, oils, creams or self-tanning lotions before treatment
Laser-light is applied to the surface of the skin and passes harmlessly into its deeper layers. As the laser light reaches the dermis, a controlled amount of therapeutic heat is delivered to the collagen which results in growth stimulation and tightening.
A series of four to six laser treatments is recommended. Maximum visible results are usually reached six months following the last treatment session. Treatments are usually scheduled four weeks apart.
