Laser Skin Tightening Q & A

What is laser skin tightening?

Laser skin tightening is a noninvasive procedure that gives you a younger, more contoured appearance. The procedure is simple but can make many key adjustments to your appearance. Patients often choose the treatment to:

  • Reduce wrinkles and fine lines
  • Lift sagging skin (e.g. jowls, eye bags)
  • Make skin feel firmer and stronger
  • Define facial contours

During the procedure, your Rainier Laser & Aesthetics Center provider uses pulses of a powerful laser light source to gently heat the tissues within your skin while cooling the outer layer. The heat causes the tissues to contract, becoming tighter in the process. 

The heating effect also prompts your skin to repair itself with new collagen fibers, which are natural structural proteins within your tissues. As this happens, you see continued improvement from your laser skin tightening procedure over the course of several months.

What are the advantages of laser skin tightening?

When compared to injectables, drugs, and surgical procedures, laser skin tightening has the advantage for many patients. 

Benefits and advantages of laser skin tightening include:

  • Immediate results
  • Additional improvements over time
  • No recovery or downtime
  • Low risk of side effects or complications
  • Quick procedure times (one hour or less)
  • Minimal discomfort
  • Long-lasting results (up to one year)

During a consultation, your provider helps you weigh the pros and cons of laser skin tightening in your unique case. Then you can decide together whether to proceed with this treatment or choose another more suited to your needs.

Am I a candidate for laser skin tightening?

Many patients are candidates for laser skin tightening because it isn’t invasive and therefore is easily tolerable. Your Rainier Laser & Aesthetics Center provider might decide that you’re a candidate for the procedure if you:

  • Have mild or moderately lax skin
  • Aren’t pregnant
  • Aren’t taking certain medications
  • Are in generally good health
  • Dislike your lines, wrinkles, or sagging skin
  • Are between ages 30 and 60

The only way to know for sure whether or not you can safely undergo laser skin tightening is to discuss your health and goals during an in-depth consultation.
