When it comes to skin rejuvenation, not everyone wants to go for dermal fillers or anti-wrinkle treatments – we get it! Fortunately, there’s a whole range of non-invasive skincare treatments for you to choose as an alternative; from relaxing spa facials through to laser skin tightening and toning.
If you’re not sure which type of treatment to go for, don’t worry, we can help with that!
It’s best to have a result in mind when considering both invasive or non-invasive aesthetic procedures. If you want to achieve a fresh faced glow while you relax and get pampered (and aren’t too fussed about seeing immediate anti ageing results results) then a classic facial might be best for you. We offer a variety of facials for you to indulge in, browse our skincare treatments or if you already know which one you’re interested in then why not treat yourself and book an appointment at our MediSpa in Southampton.
On the other hand, if your goal is younger looking skin, that’s rejuvenated, brighter, tighter and toned, and you want to physically see the results within just a few sessions, then laser skin tightening and toning is definitely the better option.
What is laser skin tightening?
Laser skin tightening is a non-invasive skin care procedure that helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines. This treatment harnesses the power of laser technology to gently heat your skin, which then stimulates your body’s natural production of collagen and new skin cells for a tighter, brighter, more youthful complexion.
What are the benefits of laser skin tightening and toning?
Aside from reducing wrinkles and restoring your youthful glow, there are many benefits to laser skin tightening and toning, including:
- Reduce scarring
- Reduce enlarged pores
- Tighten sagging skin anywhere on the body
- Non invasive – No pain or downtime
- Stimulates collagen production for naturally tighter, younger looking skin
- Suitable for adults of all ages, skin tones and genders
Laser skin tightening on the face
Laser skin tightening on the face is one of the best alternatives to more invasive anti-wrinkle treatments. This treatment helps to firm the skin and target common concerns like texture, ageing, sun damage, hyperpigmentation and acne scars.
Laser skin tightening on the body
If you want to give your body a boost, by sculpting and toning your frame for naturally firmer looking skin with less sagging, wrinkles or dark spots, look no further! Laser tightening for the body is ideal for smoothing the texture of the treated area.
What areas can be treated?
One of the reasons laser skin tightening is such a great all rounder treatment is because it’s just that – an all rounder treatment! This procedure can be used on almost any part of the body (with the exception of a few areas, or if your clinician recommends otherwise during your consultation), including:
What to expect after skin tightening
Immediately after your skin tightening treatment you’ll be able to see some results, but remember, it takes a few sessions to really see the benefit of this procedure!
Since laser skin tightening and toning is a non-invasive treatment, results aren’t permanent, but can last a few years if you invest in a full course of treatments! I you’re looking for results that will last a lifetime, we recommend speaking with a cosmetic surgeon to discover what options are available for your goals.
There are a few very rare side effects that some may experience after treatment, including redness in the treated areas, swelling, changes in skin colour, scarring or a tingling sensation. While they’re not harmful, if they persist please speak with your laser practitioner or contact your doctor.
