During a laser skin tightening treatment, the laser technician will apply a topical anaesthetic cream to the area of treatment and provide protective eyewear for the client. Then small pulses of laser will be used to treat the skin whilst a continuous burst of cool air is also focused on the area to relieve the client of any pain from the laser. This will occur until the area is properly treated. Duration of the treatment depends on the size and location of the treatment area. Although the treatment shouldn’t be painful, clients are recommended to take pain medication before the treatment if they are particularly intolerant to pain. There may be a small sensation compared to that of a snapping against the skin. However, this should resolve itself within minutes after the session.
Our Laser Skin Tightening treatment is great for treating :
- Saggy and dull skin
- Nose to mouth lines
- Facial lines and wrinkles
- Eye bags
- Loose skin
The laser tightens the skin by stimulating collagen under the skin’s surface, causes it to contract. Thus, creating a tighter and smoother look.
For the best results, we recommend more than one session.
Small pulses of laser energy are used whilst a continuous burst of cool air is also focused on the area (this is to relieve you of any pain from the laser).
During treatment, you will feel a small stinging sensation however, this should resolve itself within minutes after the session.
Commonly Asked Questions about Treatments :
How long does the treatment take?
The duration of this treatment usually depends on the size of the treatment area. On average, most appointments last for around 1 hour. The cost for this is £250.
Do I need to do anything before and after the treatment?
Our specialist will provide you with before and after advice during your initial consultation. Before the treatment, you must avoid excessive sun exposure for 4-6 weeks. Tanned skin can not be treated with laser skin tightening and any self tanning products must be stopped one week prior to treatment. Any products must be removed before having any treatment, although our specialist does wipe the skin beforehand, we advise washing any products off before coming to your appointment. Please contact the laser specialist immediately if you use any topic products.
After treatment, we do advise there may be some mild redness and swelling which should only last up to 2 hours after treatment. Redness can last up to 2-3 days. This treatment may feel similar to sun burn for a few hours but most clients have noted that their skin feels pleasantly warm after treatments. Our specialist can provide you with a cooling method (including cooling machine or ice pack) to ensure that you are comfortable. The specialist will also advise and prescribe any medication that may help maximise results or reduce the side effects. We advise you use SPF 30+ at all times during the treatments.
Does the treatment cause any pain?
There may be a slight pressure/heat on the affected area and small tingling sensations. We use various methods including cryogen, ice packs and cooling air to keep any pain to a minimum. Our technicians always check throughout the treatment that you are comfortable and at ease.
