There is a wide range of face and body treatments that promise to tighten and smooth the skin, but at About Face Anti-Aging Institute, our advanced laser skin tightening treatments work below the skin at a cellular level for real results that are backed by science.
Located in Harker Heights, Texas and serving Waco, Killeen, Temple, Belton, and the Central Texas Region, About Face Anti-Aging Institute is led by Mr. Jeff Garberich, PA-C. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and find out how laser skin tightening can improve damaged or aging skin.
What is Laser Skin Tightening?
A minimally-invasive and non-surgical solution to rejuvenated skin, laser skin tightening heats the collagen underneath the skin’s surface. Collagen, the protein in the skin responsible for structure and strength, is produced less as the skin ages. During laser skin tightening, existing collagen fibers are tightened and the body’s natural healing process is stimulating to produce new collagen.
Laser skin tightening is often a popular choice for the reduction of fine lines, wrinkles and lax skin. The laser energy can also increase circulation below the skin, restoring a youthful glow.
When Will I See Results?
Although some patients notice immediate results after laser skin tightening treatment, it may take several weeks for collagen production to refresh and renew the skin surface. Full results are often seen after about a few months and are longer-lasting than temporary “quick fix” treatments.
Am I a Good Candidate for Laser Skin Tightening?
Men and women who do not prefer or do not qualify for surgery and who are experiencing visible signs of aging may be candidates for this procedure. During your consultation, our medical team will assess several factors such as your overall health, medical history, individual skin condition and cosmetic goals in order to determine if laser skin tightening is the best course of treatment for you. Some patients choose to combine with laser hair removal as well.
Are There Any Side Effects?
After laser treatment, it is typical for the skin to have a pink or slightly red hue, but this should subside within a few days. Prior to treatment, our medical team will let you know of any possible risks that may apply to you.
Although the benefits of laser skin tightening are long-lasting, visible signs of aging can return in the future. With regular treatment and a good skincare regimen, your cosmetic concerns can be managed in the long term including using laser hair removal.
