At some point of time or the other, our skin starts to sag. It could be because of weight loss, pregnancy or even just simple ageing. If you’ve been thinking about getting rid of the sagging skin then you should consider Skin Tightening and other non-surgical procedures which could help to restore and tighten your skin. The treatment improves the laxity of the skin and as it is a non-surgical procedure, the recovery is simple and easy.

What is laser skin tightening?

A minimally invasive procedure, laser skin tightening is an anti-ageing procedure for those who want to reduce the appearance of wrinkles on their face, body or neck or tighten any sagging and loose skin. The skin starts to become tighter, healthier and smoother within just 1-4 rounds of treatments. It leaves your skin looking much younger. As it is a non-invasive laser procedure, it takes less than an hour to complete one round of treatment.

How does it work?

The laser skin tightening procedure is usually done either by a laser technician or a laser nurse who guides the laser beam across the area which needs tightening. The infrared light source heats the collagen present under the skin’s surface which causes it to tighten up. The tightening effect of the laser might not be as dramatic as the facial plastic surgery procedures like the facelift or the neck lift, but however, you will enjoy the skin tightening results with minimal recovery time.

Hot Sculpting is one of the popular skin tightening treatments. The Fotona laser technology is used and it has been designed in such a way that it targets unwanted pockets of fat by accelerating cell metabolism and also addressing skin laxity at the same time Smooth, lifted and tightened skin are some of the benefits which help to increase the elasticity and suppleness of the skin. Hot Sculpting also reduces and re-sculpts the fat deposits and even improves the appearance of cellulite.

Are there any side effects?

As it is a minimally invasive laser treatment, there are very few side effects and almost no recovery time after treatment. Hot Sculpting which is also known as Tight Sculpting is suitable for almost all areas of the body. The best part about this treatment is that it doesn’t involve the use of needles or anaesthesia. Being a minimally invasive treatment with almost no downtime, it is fast becoming a popular alternative to invasive procedures like laser lipolysis.
