Here at DrBK, we offer Skin Tightening treatment using Alma Laser’s Soprano NIR Skin Tightening machine.
As we age, parts of our skin start to ‘sag’ and we can often become insecure about this. This treatment helps give you tighter, firmer, youthful looking skin and is suitable for all skin types.
This skin tightening treatment is effective for improving skin laxity without surgery or downtime, and it comes with long-lasting results.
Where can we treat?
The Skin Tightening machine can be used near enough anywhere on the body, including: the buttocks, backs and insides of the legs, abdomen, upper arms and face. The face and neck tend to be our most popularly treated areas. This is also a particularly beneficial treatment to tighten jowls that have drooped with age.
How does skin tightening work?
The procedure uses a safe infrared light to heat the water content in the tissue deep below the skin’s surface. The heat stimulates fibroblasts which repair cells in your skin to produce collagen.
Prior to the treatment we will cleanse the area that is due to be treated and apply a generous amount of oil to the area. The Skin Tightening hand piece is then passed over the skin in a light, sweeping motion.
Is skin tightening painful?
No. It is to be expected that you will feel heat as the infrared energy is delivered to the deeper layers of the skin, however our cooling hand piece (which is in constant contact with the skin) ensures that treatment is comfortable and painless.
Your skin may appear slightly irritated/flushed immediately after treatment. However this generally subsides within a few hours. In some rare cases can remain for up to 24 hours.
The beauty of this treatment is that there is next to no recovery time, meaning you can resume normal activity more or less right away.
We advise that you avoid heat treatments and refrain from applying makeup (if the face has been treated) for 24 hours post-treatment.
