Who Benefits From Skin Tightening?
Anyone with loose skin. The skin treated is most commonly treated is on the neck, the abdomen, the thighs, the upper arms, and the lower face. This treatment has no downtime, but results aren’t fully evident for six months. Don’t mistake lightly tightening the skin with a face lift- this treatment does not pull underlying muscles, so while most of our patients are very pleased with their outcomes, we carefully assess who is a good candidate for this treatment. We find that combining this treatment with the 1540 resurfacing (see 3D section) usually leads to more impressive outcomes.
What to Expect During Treatment?
Palomar’s Lux IR hand piece is a fractional deep infrared treatment and this means it does not fire a single beam of light into the skin. Rather, it sends many tiny beams of light that are spaced evenly throughout the treatment area. Because only a fraction of the dermis is affected by the laser the treatment is not painful and feels either cool, warm or at times hot for just a second. Palomar hand pieces utilize liquid cooling technology to immediately soothe any discomfort during the procedure. No topical numbing medication is required for this treatment.
What to Expect After Treatment?
You may feel tightness, redness or a slight heated feeling on the treatment area; these generally disappear within a few hours. As the laser does not affect a large portion of the skin, healing is quick. Usually you can return to work directly after treatment and without any recovery time.
