LASER SKIN TIGHTENING
We're going to take very good care of you.
Information is power. So here's a a little background on the Laser Skin Tightening treatment at Smooth Skin Centers.
After your treatment, you'll look a little flush, like you’ve just come off the tennis court with a victory. We'll moisturize your skin and give you a good dose of sunscreen before leave (your skin will be sensitive to the sun). You'll immediately be able to shower, or apply makeup after a treatment. Post-treatment aftercare instructions are found here.
How does Laser
Skin Tightening work?
The Gentle Yag uses an intense infrared laser that wakes up the collagen deep under the skin’s surface; the outer layer of skin is not affected. The laser triggers the body's own healing response is triggered to stimulate collagen production. Collagen is what makes our skin tight, plump, juicy, and rosy. Gorgeous! Optimal results usually require three treatments about a month apart.
What will your treatment
A typical treatment on your face and neck will take about 20 minutes. Before we start, our technician will review your history and answer all your questions. We’ll clean the area to be treated and calibrate the Gentle Yag laser for your procedure. Then, you and the technician will don the appropriate safety goggles and the light work begins!
