A new laser cosmetic treatment has recently been unveiled which is called laser skin tightening. This treatment can improve the signs of ageing but can be used on other aspects such as creating firmer cheeks. It can also be used on problem areas of the body such as the abdomen or could be used to improve the appearance of scarring.
The treatment involves the laser working deep within the skin to promote collagen production. This is so that the skin will naturally heal and repair itself to lead to firmer and smoother skin. It can help deliver a lifted appearance and can reduce sagging in areas. It is recommended that a course of sessions is carried out for this treatment.
However, there are a number of risks to laser skin tightening. People with a darker skin tone may suffer to a change to their skin colour. Hypo-pigmentation may occur, where the skin becomes permanently lighter. Redness, soreness, swelling and burns can occur. If you suffer from keloid scarring or are on certain medications, infection is more likely to occur. Furthermore, if the laser goes too deep, then damage can be done to the skin that cannot be restored, the skin could take on an uneven appearance and some muscle tone could be reduced.
