LASER SKIN TIGHTENING ('LASER LIFT')

It has been shown that by using a laser which has relatively deep penetration into the skin, the temperature of the collagen in the deeper dermis can be increased and produce slight tightening of the skin.

The degree of tightening achieved by the laser can be subtle, and varies from individual to individual and is not as dramatic as the tightening that can be obtained with a face lift.  However, a 'laser lift' requires no general anaesthetic and no stitches and the laser treatment can be done as a 'lunchtime procedure'.  Local anaesthetic cream is best applied to the skin for 30-60 minutes before the long pulse Nd Yag laser beam is passed over the treatment site up to three times.  Immediately following the laser tightening procedure the skin looks slightly flushed, but this can be covered by make-up and everyday activity can usually be resumed straight away.

The tightening usually takes several weeks to become apparent and in some individuals becomes more noticeable over the next few months.  The laser treatment can be repeated if desired here at our clinic in Tunbridge Wells, Kent.
