Although laser skin tightening won’t stop the aging process, it can help you achieve the best skin for your age. Laser skin tightening is often the preferred option for firming loose skin, because of the short treatment time and minimal recovery. But are there any side effects with skin tightening.

Laser skin tightening
As the skin ages, the body produces less collagen and elastin, and the skin is more likely to become thin, and start to sag. This is particularly noticeable in the area below the eyes and along the jawline. Lines and wrinkles also form across the forehead, and around the nose and mouth. Laser skin tightening tightens the skin, and reduces the appearance of wrinkles and folds.

Laser skin tightening involves the use of different technologies that stimulate collagen and elastin renewal, providing the foundation for tighter skin.

Are there side effects with skin tightening?
There may be some mild side effects with skin tightening. These typically include redness, swelling, or bruising, which normally resolve within a few hours of treatment. It’s important that patients discuss possible side effects of skin tightening with their doctor, before proceeding with treatment.

In you are considering skin tightening, be sure to choose an experienced medical professional with the requisite experience using the specific laser technology.

Titan laser by Cutera is among the most advanced lasers for skin tightening. Titan uses infrared light to heat the dermal layer, to stimulate collagen growth. Titan can treat loose skin almost anywhere on the body, but is commonly used on the face, abdomen, and upper arms.
