Skin Tightening

Skin Tightening

It's hitting reverse on saggy skin.

Laser skin tightening improves your skin’s elasticity and promotes the production of collagen. Your skin will feel firm and taut and lines will be reduced, whether it be on your face, tummy, breasts, chest, buttocks, thighs or neck. It’s perfect for stretched post-natal skin, aged skin tone and sagging facial tissue.

Laser Skin Tightening uses leading laser technology to bulk heat the skin to certain temperatures in order to cause collagen contracture. The heat will then metabolise unhealthy fibres and cells causing a stimulation to the fibroblast cells (these produce collagen and elastin fibres). This process works to smooth fine lines, wrinkles and improve the overall texture of the skin. Laser Skin Tightening can be used on any area where there is a loss of collagen.

The procedure is quick and comfortable, with minimal downtime.

Preparation
No sun exposure 2 weeks prior and daily use of Institut Age Defence SPF 50+ sunscreen.

Aftercare

Redness and heat in the skin normally subsides within 3-4 hours. Post-treatment, it's important to keep the skin cool, calm and hydrated. Minimal sun exposure, exercise and heat on the treated area is recommended. The use of Institut's RF aftercare pack is recommended for the next 7 days.

Skin Tightening Benefits

What to expect

Laser Skin Tightening is all about bulk heating the skin to certain temperatures to cause collagen contracture (think of putting a steak in a really hot pan and it shrinking and contracting in size). The heat will then metabolise unhealthy fibres and cells causing a stimulation to the fibroblast cells (they produce collagen and elastin fibres). This will then smooth fine lines, wrinkles and texture of the skin. Laser Skin Tightening can be used on any area where there is a loss of collagen.

With the use of the Candela GentleYAG Laser the procedure is quick, comfortable and non-invasive with minimal downtime.

For your best results

We recommend you have between 4 & 6 treatments, 4-6 weeks apart for optimal results.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How do I know what treatment is right for me?
    Speak to one of our skin specialists for a complimentary skin consultation. We love educating people about their skin and will offer you a tailored treatment plan
  • What will my skin look like when I walk out of the clinic - will I need time off work?
    Each person’s skin is different – so your response will vary, but the majority of our skin treatments require no downtime. . Your therapist will take you through a post-treatment care regime that will minimise any impact to your skin.
  • How long will it take for me to see a result after my treatments?
    Each procedure is different – our less invasive treatments (such as microdermabrasion and superficial chemical peels) give more immediate results, and our more invasive treatments (such as Fractional RF (Max RF), Dermal rolling and deeper chemical peels) taken longer to see results (1-3 months). These treatments, however, have more lasting impacts than the less invasive treatments. Your therapist will advise on a treatment plan that will include a variety of treatments and our cosmedical-grade skin scapre products to address the skin concerns you have.
  • How do I maximise the benefits of my skin treatments?

    Combine your treatments with LED light therapy and Skinstitut cosmedical skin care.

    LED works on a cellular level to fight active acne, rosacea and leaves your skin energised and youthful. The deep penetrating LED lights are designed to be soothing, target deep into skin cells to heighten their internal functions, photo-stimulate dermal blood flow and induce faster healing, reduce acne and treat rosacea.

    Cosmedicals are the newest and arguably the most effective category of skin products that can be purchased without prescription. Often described as an advanced cosmeceutical, Cosmedicals have the ability to target not only present and past skin damage, but provide the skin with some preventative capacity for the future. Based on a medically and clinically proven blend of AHA, Retinoids, Vitamin C, Peptides, Antioxidant and SPF technology, Cosmedicals are not only reliant on a potent percentage of active ingredients but utilise carefully formulated base formulas, encapsulation technology and penetration enhancers to deliver benefits as deep as possible into the skin.

  • Why do I need to use aftercare products?

    The importance of before and aftercare is to ensure you receive maximum results with minimal side effects to the treatments we offer. This includes our skin and laser treatments and can even be applied to cosmetic injections.

    For example our 5 a-day home care pack has everything you need for before and after your treatments. It will help to ensure you get fantastic results and your skin will heal and respond effectively following your treatments.
