Laser Skin Tightening
Have you considered a laser skin tightening procedure to reduce loose, sagging facial skin? Is this the best option for you?
Well, There are several options for tightening loose skin - so it depends on how severe your situation is and what your budget and schedule allows.
First let’s investigate what’s involved in Laser skin rejuvenation and the pros and cons.........
What is laser skin tightening and how does it work? Laser skin treatment uses special amplified light waves of carbon dioxide that vaporize the top layers of the skin which removes damaged wrinkled skin.
During the healing process, new healthier skin cells form creating smoother, tighter skin with reduced wrinkles, age spots, and fine lines.
The entire procedure can be in done in a dermatologists office in about two hours or so under a light anesthesia for superficial resurfacing.
Is Laser Resurfacing for Everyone?
Most people get pretty good results, however, not everyone is a good candidate for this procedure. People of color may be at risk of pigmentation changes (i.e. uneven skin tone). Also, if your prone to infections or have certain medical conditions……this may not be for you.
In addition, there is a long healing time of 7-15 days or so. This means you will not “look pretty” as the skin will be red, raw, crusty, and peeling. There can also be mild swelling.
And, you won’t be able to put on makeup or anything else on your face for a few days. Then when you‘re ready to apply makeup and go out, you must be very careful to avoid the sun, as you skin will be extra sensitive.
And, finally there is the cost. These type of procedures tend to run about $1,500.00 or more – depending on whether you’re getting your whole face done or just certain areas like the eye area (crow’s feet) and if you’re getting a deeper resurfacing or just a light superficial treatment for the shallow skin layers.
Skin Tightening Serum and Other Options
If your situation is not that severe or you're not a good candidate for laser skin tightening procedure, there are few over-the-counter, non-surgical methods to improve skin tone and firmness......like a good quality skin tightening serum that is actually good for your face because it contains skin healing properties similar to copper peptides.
While the results will be nothing like a surgical procedure, these serums can help offer a small temporary lift to the thin skin ares like around the eyes.. And people have commented that over time - with regular use - their complexion gets better looking, firmer, and more hydrated......hydration seems to be a big factor here. Thin, dehydrated skin can look more saggy.
If you normally wear a lot of makeup, this serum could be a bit tricky to work with. I apply it mostly to the eye area. But if you plan on using it on the whole face, try to apply your makeup first, then the serum and let dry. Most women say this works pretty well.
The best part - this serum is NOT sticky (like so many others are), tight, or drying. And, as stated before, over time, your skin gets better looking and firmer with regular use. Click here to learn more skin tightening serum.
