Laser Skin Tightening:
As we age, the elasticity of our skin begins to diminish, resulting in sagging and wrinkling. The collagen in the skin on your face, after years of fighting gravity, begins to lax and signs of aging become more prominent and visible. For years, the only solution for those suffering from loose skin and wrinkles has been the highly-invasive "face lift" which involves going under anesthesia, and weeks of recovery; but things have changed...
At Bella Derma Clinic of Orange County in Newport Beach is proud to now offer Laser Skin Tightening to it's clients. In Orange County alone, thousands of skin tightening procedures are performed annually because it is a quick and painless procedure. This breakthrough in anti-aging technology has been in development for years in Europe, and is now available to patients here in California. Skin tightening is the safest, most effective treatment for reversing the signs of aging, dimishing the appearance of wrinkles, and rejuvenating your face. Skin tightening requires no invasive procedures or anaesthesia, so a patient can get back to living their lives while looking a whole lot younger.
Laser skin tightening works by revitalizing the collagen in your skin. Over the course of your lifetime, the naturally occurring collagen can begin to lose it's elasticity. This often can be seen in the form of sagging jowels and drooping eyelids, as well as wrinkles and laugh lines. Laser skin at Bella Derma's Clinic state of the art, minimally invasive lasers, utilize infrared light to heat the collagen in your skin, thus causing it to retract(tighten). There is no downtime after the procedure and you can get back to your daily activities almost immediately. The fact that there is no time for recovery is making this procedure one of the most popular around the world.
Everyone is a good candidate for laser skin tightening, regardless of skin type. Skin tone, which normally plays a role in the success of laser treatment, plays no role in facial skin tightening. This means that everyone can reap the benefits of such a groundbreaking procedure. Best results occur after 2-3 sessions, but some of the most successful candidates have had permanent skin tightening, with the laser stimulating the generation of new collagen.
After a free consultation, At Bella Derma we will determine exactly what skin tightening technique will give you optimal results. The procedure will take less than two hours, and after, you can continue going about your day. Of course, a strict regimine of moisturizer and sunscreen will be called for to maintain skin suppleness, and protection. Within hours you will notice the difference, but within days, you will really begin to see dramatic results. The collagen will continue to retract for up to three months, and by month three, you will be looking and feeling younger than you have in years.
