For sagging skin, wrinkles, fine lines, and deep folds, there is nothing equivalent to TightSculpting. It generally takes about 4-6 treatments and since the treatments are natural yet cumulative, it takes a few months to notice the remarkable results! So how long do these effects and results last?
How Long Does Laser Skin Tightening Last?
Chronological aging, genetics, and lifestyle are the primary causes of skin sagging. Ideally, candidates for laser skin tightening treatment are patients 25-70 years of age. There are many reasons why patients consider having laser tightening treatments, some do it after pregnancy along with stretch mark revision, some do it after 20-30 pound weight loss, and some do it because the lack of testosterone or estrogen due to aging can lead to decreased skin collagen and thus loose saggy skin.
There are different types of lasers to do skin tightening treatments and these can have different results. Each laser’s effect lasts differently. Typically, laser skin tightening treatments last for two years. This period may be shortened or extended according to different factors: age, patient’s health, lifestyle, and if they are doing any maintenance treatments.
When Will I Start Seeing Results?
Patients may immediately notice changes in the area of the procedure. But the optimal result will appear 4 to 6 months after the first treatment session of laser skin tightening. Since the treatment includes a process that promotes new collagen growth in the skin, it can take up to 90 to 180 days to see and enjoy the rejuvenated appearance.
How Long is the Recovery Time?
Since laser skin tightening is a non-invasive procedure, downtime is not a major factor. Usually, there is minimal to no restriction on your daily activity after the treatment, except it is advisable to keep well hydrated, wear tight fitting garments in the area of treatment and limit heavy lifting and tasks that will expose you to sunlight for long hours. Your provider will give you instructions and necessary restrictions depending on your case.
There are some common side effects after the treatment. But the symptoms are expected to go away on their own after 24 to 48 hours.
After the procedure, you may feel any of the following:
- minimal swelling
- sense of heat in the treated area
Is Laser Treatment Worth It?
The worth of laser skin treatments will only be identified by the acquired results and the end goals of the patient. If you want to improve the quality and texture of your skin through skin treatments but do not want needles or surgery then laser treatments can be totally worth it.
Laser treatments will typically last for two years, but there are things one can do to prolong its rejuvenating result. Although the effect of laser treatments varies in the unique conditions of each patient, there are ways to make the result last longer.
Tips to Make Your Laser Treatment Result Last Longer
Water serves as an integral role in keeping your skin plump and healthy by holding the collagen together. If you keep your skin hydrated after getting the treatments, the collagen will stay intact, giving you longer-lasting results.
Protect Your Skin Against Sun Exposure
Harmful UV rays can damage the skin by destroying the collagen in your body. Too much exposure to sunlight can cause unwanted lines and wrinkles in the skin, eventually causing laser skin treatment results to diminish. Wear a mineral sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher in the laser treated area.
Which Laser Treatment Will Give You Your Ideal Shape?
You have many options available if you want laser treatments to solve your skin issues. If you are looking for a laser procedure that has a multidimensional approach to tissue remodeling, body contouring, and rejuvenating tightening effects, then TightSculpting is the perfect solution.
TightSculpting is the combination of two non-invasive procedures. It not only does sculpting but skin tightening as well and these two non-invasive laser treatments work together to give you the optimized shape and rejuvenated tightened skin.
How is TightSculpting Done?
TightScuplting consists of two procedures. The first is sculpting or body contouring, where excess fat can be reduced and eliminated. You need to discuss with your practitioner your goals and which part of your body you want fat cells eradicated. The second procedure using laser energy, tightens the skin by generating new collagen production that plumps and rejuvenates the skin.
The patient may see an immediate result from the sculpting procedure. Visible new shaping and contouring will occur. The tightening process, however, needs time to reveal your ideal outcome. It may take 4-6 months after the first TightSculpting treatment session for the skin to show significant plumping and tightening results.
