Over time, your skin will show signs of aging in the form of wrinkles and slackness. This appearance in aging is due to loss in elasticity, sun damage, or even losing weight rapidly. Skin tightening is an excellent treatment for combating these issues as it offers incredible results in achieving firmer skin and a more youthful appearance.

Here at Thrive Skin + Wellness, our non-surgical skin tightening treatment is a laser treatment which is designed to tackle lax skin without having to go under the scalpel. Add to this the bonus of no downtime, makes our laser skin tightening treatment an ideal solution with excellent benefits.

So, exactly what is involved in a skin tightening treatment — more specifically, laser skin tightening?

What is laser skin tightening?

Laser skin tightening is a growing trend for those looking to eliminate loose skin and fill up wrinkles. Also referred to as ultrasound skin tightening, skin tightening laser allows us to provide a comfortable way to tone and tighten your skin.

Many of our patients choose this laser treatment as it makes skin contract by pulling the cells together and it promotes collagen growth, which rejuvenates loose or stretched skin.

Oftentimes, people who have undergone rapid weight loss or signs of aging is starting to show are dissatisfied with the way their skin looks. When the skin is stretched and then shrunk back — for example weight gain/loss or during pregnancy, the skin tends to lose its tautness. Skin tightening offers a boost in elasticity which helps to tighten the skin that has become looser and gives a more firm feel and appearance.

Why do people opt for laser skin tightening over other treatments?

Both men and women choose laser skin tightening because it is a treatment that produces results for various skin types and provides immediate results with minimal or no downtime. It is a fact that we produce less collagen as we age resulting in older-looking, looser skin. A skin tightening treatment can help stimulate collagen growth, thereby making your skin look healthier, smoother, and younger.

The quick results are another reason people are attracted to skin tightening treatment. Some results are seen almost immediately, but most of the changes are visible over several months as collagen starts to grow. Results can last 5 to 10 years.
