As you age, your body produces less collagen, and it isn’t able to grow new cells as efficiently as when you were younger. As a result, you may start to notice that your skin loses volume and starts to look loose or saggy. Dr. Roxana Kerns offers innovative laser skin tightening treatment to stimulate your body’s collagen production and new cell growth. Call or book an appointment online today to meet with Dr. Kerns at her practice, Orchid Aesthetics Medical Spa, located in Midtown West, New York City.
Laser skin tightening uses infrared heat to penetrate to the deepest layers of your skin to stimulate dermal collagen production and tighten the outer layers of your epidermis. The rejuvenating laser treatment includes sapphire contact cooling to protect the upper layers of your skin during treatment.
Treatment typically takes 20-30 minutes. Dr. Kerns uses a gentle pulse of infrared light that typically doesn’t cause discomfort. If you are having a sensitive area treated, you can request a topical anesthetic to ensure your comfort throughout your treatment.
Following laser skin tightening treatment, you should notice that your skin looks smoother and healthier. Any areas of looseness or sagging lifts and your skin regains its healthy glow. Most patients have three to six treatments, spaced at least a month apart. Every patient has different needs, so you may need more or fewer treatments to achieve the desired results. You should notice a difference in your skin within 24-48 hours following treatment, with the full effects becoming noticeable in a week to 10 days.
Dr. Kerns uses a laser skin tightening system that is safe for all skin types. With her experience, she offers predictable results, including a firmer and more youthful appearance. Skin tightening is most often done on the face, but you can have treatment elsewhere on the body, such as your hands, abdomen, and arms.
You don’t need to take any time out of your busy day to recover from laser skin tightening treatments. Dr. Kerns uses a laser skin tightening system that delivers infrared light energy in a sequence of rapid, gentle pulses. Not only is the treatment painless, but you don’t experience any side effects to keep you from the rest of your day.
Dr. Kerns gives you specific instructions on how to take care of your skin after a laser skin tightening treatment. She recommends specific skin care products to enhance the effects of your treatment and protect your skin. You should also protect your skin from the sun with a high-factor sunscreen and broad-brimmed hat.
