Laser skin tightening treatment is a non-surgical procedure used to tighten the skin by heating the collagen under the skin surface. At Dr.Manjot’s Clinic, we are using multiple techniques and procedures to achieve the desired results for the patient.
Laser skin tightening can be used to give a tighter tought facial appearance. It has two main work areas, firstly to decrease the nasolabial folds and lift the cheeks and secondly to decrease the double chin and sharpen the jawline. This laser helps fight the effect of gravity on the face and lift the sagging face and reverse the triangle of ageing
The main advantage of this procedure is that it does not require any recovery time. There isno downtime required. You can start your daily activities immediately after the treatment.
Results are seen immediately in the first week, but these are mainly due to the swelling, the longer lasting results are seen at 3 weeks post procedure. But you will ideally need 3 sittings for the best results.
ETWO™Syneron candela US-FDA approved Laser therapy isthe most popular treatment for laser skin tightening. It is the combination of Sublative Rejuvenation (eMatrix Resurfacing) and Sublime Skin Contouring treatment. This treatment is also known as “ReFirme”. ETWO will make your skin appear more youthful.
ETWO is a treatment which uses the Radiofrequency energy to deliver an effective fractional and tightening treatment to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, pores and acne scarring.
To firm the skin and tightening the lax skin, Sublime Skin Contouring, which is formerly known as ReFirme, combines infrared light with radiofrequency. In ETWO skin tightening package both these components that are three Sublime and 3 sublative (Ematrix) treatments are given once a month for 3 months. There is minimal discomfort after the treatment.
The two together yield an improved skin surface regularity as well as firming and tightening.
If you want to improve wrinkles and sagging of the skin, reduce pore size appearance, and diminish acne scarring, ETWO is the treatment tailor-made for you.
This procedure combines the twoapplications together to minimize fine lines, wrinkles and acne scars. Sublative and Sublime are the applications which provide the safe and effective face rejuvenation. We’ll break down what Sublative and Sublime are, and how they can help you take years off your appearance.
This is the non-invasive, energy-based technology used to treat fine lines, wrinkles and acne scars. This is useful for treating the difficult lines around the lips and eyes. This treatment will take less than an hour to complete the procedure and you can see that your skin is clearer, smoother and more elastic several days after the procedure! Fractionated bi-polar radio frequency energy is directed into the skin to improve tone and texture. The healthy tissue surrounding the target area then stimulates the production of collagen, elastin and healthy skin cells. This treatment works on all skin types, with minimal downtime. Cumulative results are achieved over a series of three to four treatments.
Sublime is a facial contouring and tightening treatment that works to increase volume in the skin and stimulate the production of collagen. Like Sublative, Sublime uses bi-polar radio frequency, along with light energies, to reduce wrinkles and improve complexion. Used to lift and plump the skin, Sublime improves skin laxity, texture and overall skin quality of the face and neck. Sublime offers cumulative results over a series of three to six treatments.
What to Expect after Laser Skin Tightening Treatment?
After laser skin tightening, you can expect the smoother and brighter skin. Results will be immediately visible, and the rejuvenating effects of increased collagen production will become markedly more noticeable in the months following treatment. Immediately after treatment, patients may notice that the affected skin is red and slightly warm, but this usually resolves itself within a few hours. Since treated skin is especially delicate, most laser skin tightening practitioners recommend that patients protect the treated area with sunscreen for at least two weeks following their treatment. Permanent negative side effects of laser skin tightening are very rare, and patients who experience prolonged redness, swelling, or any other disturbance to the treated skin are advised to contact their doctor.
There are fewrisks associated with the procedure. Sublime is usually a comfortable treatment but the Sublative treatment requires a topical anesthetic, which makes it quite tolerable. Hereissome minimal side effects which can be associated with the treatment after following the procedure.Expected side effects are redness and swelling after the procedure that lasts from hours to days, and occasionally even up to a week or beyond (very unusual). Small scabs covering about 5% of the treated areas appear, but they are usually easy to cover with makeup. Although the scabs can be present for 5-14 days, but usually not very noticeable after the first day or two.
It is necessary to discuss these side effects with you your medical provider and cosmetic coordinatorbefore the treatment starts.
How will I look after the treatment?
Most patients notice changes in the tone and condition of their skin immediately following a skin tightening treatment. However, because the procedure is designed to stimulate the natural growth of collagen, the patient’s optimal results may take up to a few months to be visible. Typically, new collagen growth takes from 90 to 180 days after the initial treatment. After thatpatients enjoy a dramatically rejuvenated appearance.
Can this be combined with other treatments?
The ETwo is already a combination of treatments with the goal of reversing the effects of aging. However, fillers and botulinum toxin may be combined.
