Skin Tightening


Laser skin tightening devices work by stimulating collagen protein production, which repairs support structures beneath the surface to firm and tighten the skin. Laser skin tightening devices use infrared light, bi-polar radiofrequency or a combination of the two technologies to heat the deep dermis layer of the skin. This triggers the skin’s natural healing process, which is the catalyst for the collagen remodeling that can produce skin tightening effects.17
