As time goes on, natural aging and sun exposure can lead to dulled skin and problem areas such as droopy neck and saggy jawline, loss of elasticity and lack of moisture. Laser Skin Tightening, St Louis style, is a wonderful treatment for tightening, brightening and treating skin to a whole new look. As one of our patients put it, “it’s like putting your worn out jeans in the dryer!”
How does laser skin tightening in St Louis work? Using advanced laser technology, laser light beams penetrate the skin and reach the collagen layer deep within. There they gently build warmth. In a repeated massage motion, the laser stimulates that area and natural collagen production deep within the skin’s underlying structure is stimulated.
Collagen is a natural compound found in healthy skin, but our bodies produce less of it as we age. Collagen is responsible for skin’s elasticity and its moisture retention. When it is regenerated, skin becomes more supple and dewy. Stimulating new collagen production helps to turn back the clock, making your skin tighter and increasing moisture for that healthy, youthful glow.
Laser skin tightening is useful for reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin, and uneven skin tone. Unlike some skin rejuvenation techniques, laser skin tightening is not restricted to the face and neck; it can also be used on the tummy, buttocks, and other areas of the body. Anywhere skin is sagging and has lost tone can benefit from tightening and stimulation. Best of all, this procedure can be performed much quicker than surgical procedures and has no recovery period. There is slight pinkess that fades in 15-20 minutes, leaving behind wonderfully freshened skin that gets better and better as the new collagen grows in. Many people refer to this as a “lunchtime lift.”
Laser Skin Tightening feels like a warm massage. Really! It is a very comfortable deep massage with deep, gentle heat. During your procedure, we constantly check your comfort to make sure that you are feeling good while you receive maximum benefit. The surface of the skin feels warmed, as with a warm air hand warmer, while the underlying layers receive the laser’s energy painlessly.
