Advances in science and technology have given us new, innovative tools and techniques to address skin imperfections and conditions. At his leading Miami aesthetic dermatology clinic, Dr. Mariano Busso offers his patients the latest cutting-edge treatment options, but only after they have been definitively proven to be effective and safe. This includes the laser skin tightening procedures he performs on patients to reduce the visibility of wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of aging.
Not only is laser skin tightening safe, but it is also a noninvasive and relatively quick procedure with minimal side-effects and discomfort and little to no recovery time involved. We can use this treatment, which involves tightening and lifting the skin for a younger and fuller appearance, on all areas of the face and body, but we most commonly use it to address issues on the cheeks and neck.
Laser skin tightening is an attractive option for the slimming, firming effects it can achieve without involving invasive surgical procedures such as facelifts, neck lifts, liposuction or tummy tucks. Laser skin tightening can deliver noticeable results with significantly less pain and recovery time than these other treatment methods.
What’s Involved in Laser Skin Tightening?
When you arrive at our comforting and welcoming clinic for your procedure, we may begin by applying a topical anesthetic cream to the treatment area to reduce any potential discomfort. We will also provide you with protective eyewear to shield your eyes from the extraordinary light that the laser emits.
Dr. Busso uses a precision hand piece to apply short bursts of laser light to the treatment area. As noted, while laser skin tightening is significantly less painful than other procedures, you may still feel some brief discomfort or a warming sensation around where we apply the laser. To make things more comfortable, we continuously direct cool air to the skin at and around the treatment area.
In most cases, Dr. Busso will use the laser over the treatment area more than once, usually three times in a session. Depending on the condition of the skin and the size of the area to be treated, a session will usually last from 30 minutes to one hour.
Another advantage of laser skin tightening over more traditional approaches is that it involves little to no recovery time. Most of our patients go right back to work and engage in their regular activities immediately after the treatment. Minimal potential side effects can occasionally linger after a session, such as a warm sensation, minor swelling, or some redness. These issues will go away in a few hours, if you experience any such effects at all.
