Our skin is such an amazing thing. Over the course of our lives, it protects us from environmental factors such as pollution, the sun’s ultraviolet rays, and a myriad of types of “germs.” Not only that, but our skin is capable of stretching as we gain weight or experience pregnancy. The skin is truly amazing. However, as we age, we lose collagen and firmness and our skin begins to sag and wrinkle. Laser skin tightening is a great solution to sagging skin and we are going to explore how long results tend to last.
How Does Laser Skin Tightening Work?
Laser skin tightening uses two radio frequencies to treat fine lines, wrinkles, and to tighten and tone skin. It does this by promoting the production of collagen and elastin. It is one of the most effective methods for tightening loose, crepey skin. The bi-polar heating treatment works on the skin’s surface which is a more delicate and thinner layer than the layers below it. A uni-polar heating treatment then penetrates deeper to provide heat to the deeper tissues. When the collagen under the skin’s surface is heated, the skin contracts providing an overall tightening effect. The skin’s tone and texture will gradually improve as collagen and elastin continue to be produced.
Other than the minimal discomfort from the heat that is produced by the lasers, the treatment is relatively painless. Since laser skin tightening is nonsurgical, there is little to no downtime. The treatment will last approximately one hour and patients generally need 2 to 6 treatments which will be spaced 7 to 10 days apart. The number of treatments varies based on the individual needs of each person.

How Long Does Laser Skin Tightening Last?
The amount of time that laser skin tightening lasts varies from person to person. Each individual ages at a different rate depending on genetics and lifestyle factors. When patients avoid sun exposure, take good care of the skin, and moisturize appropriately, the results will last longer than if they do not care for their skin after the treatment. With that being said, results in last an average of 2 to 3 years. Patients often get additional treatment after 2 years. Aging cannot be stopped, but with follow-up treatments every couple of years, you can keep your skin looking tighter, smoothers, and younger-looking for years to come.
