Laser skin tightening is a minimally invasive, non-surgical process that uses an infrared light source (a laser) to tighten skin by heating the collagen under the skin’s surface, causing the skin to contract (tighten).
Areas of the Body that Laser Skin Tightening can treat face, neck, abdomen, arms, legs, and buttocks
How long to see results?

Producing new collagen takes time. Laser Skin Tightening is designed to stimulate the natural growth of collagen. To get to see optimal results you may have to wait to a few months.
Typically, new collagen growth takes from 90 to 180 days after the initial treatment for a real rejuvenated appearance.
