Skin Tightening Q & A
What is laser skin tightening?
Laser skin tightening is a noninvasive treatment to reduce signs of aging without surgery, anesthesia, or significant downtime for recovery. This treatment focuses on reducing or eliminating premature signs of aging by rejuvenating your skin deep below the surface.
Medical professionals at The Doc Spa offer a variety of treatments to improve the quality and youthful appearance of your skin, including the revolutionary Smartskin+ CO2 laser.
Who should get laser skin tightening?
If you have wrinkles, spots, or other signs of sun damage that make you feel unhappy with the appearance of your skin, the team at The Doc Spa can help.
Laser skin tightening may be right for you if you experience any of these common skin conditions:
- Age, sun, or liver spots
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Deep folds and grooves
- Sun damage
- Dark undereye circles
- Enlarged pores
- Uneven skin tone
- Leathery skin
How does the Smartskin+ laser tighten skin?
Medical aesthetics experts at The Doc Spa use top-quality technology, including the Smartskin+ fractional laser treatment. This state-of-the-art laser stimulates collagen production and resurfaces your skin at the same time by sending tiny pulses of energy deep into your tissue layers.
Smartskin+ treatments are fully customizable to fit your unique needs and aesthetic goals. You can get two or three milder anti-aging treatment sessions for minimal downtime, or schedule just one, more intensive treatment for dramatic results with about a week of downtime for recovery.
What should I expect from a Smartskin+ treatment?
The process begins with a complimentary consultation at The Doc Spa. At this consultation, you discuss your concerns and goals with a medical professional and work together to create a customized skin tightening plan that’s best for you.
During the Smartskin+ procedure, you get a topical anesthesia to enhance your comfort. Most sessions last about 15-30 minutes, during which you may feel warmth and tingling as the laser moves across your skin.
After the procedure, your skin feels warm and may appear sunburned. You may also experience mild bruising, but these effects fade in several days after your skin starts replacing aged skin cells with healthy new ones.
Depending on the degree of your treatment, your skin may appear 5-10 years younger after treatment.*
