This procedure provides for deep skin rejuvenation by tightening the skin. It improves skin laxity, and stimulates collagen growth through the delivery of light energy to the deep dermis of the skin. The results are the development of a more youthful complexion with less lines, folds and looseness of the skin. This is a perfect procedure for people who would like a “lift” without having to undergo surgery, anesthesia and lengthy downtime.
When treating the face, we have two treatment protocols that we use with this technology. Both treat the whole face, but one is more comprehensive than the other. At consultation, it is decided which protocol is appropriate for you. This depends on the condition of the skin and the goals that are set. The more extensive protocol calls for 2 treatments spaced a month apart. The less extensive protocol calls for 3 shorter treatments spaced a month apart.
Some patients see a small improvement right away after treatment. The real results don’t happen for 6 to 8 months because this treatment stimulates collagen to grow and it takes some time.
