Laser Skin Tightening
What is Laser Skin Tightening?
NYC Laser Skin Tightening treats lax skin and is the first non-surgical light-based system approved by the FDA for dermal heating. Using laser tightening light energy to heat the dermis deep beneath your skin’s surface, Laser Skin Tightening provides an all-natural option to enhance skin tone without surgery, recovery time or injections. New York Cosmetic Laser Skin Tightening is an ideal solution for tightening loose skin on your face, arms and abdomen.
NYC Laser Skin Tightening FAQs
How does the Laser Skin Tightening treatment work?
Laser Skin Tightening safely heats the dermis, which results in new collagen production and subsequent SKIN TIGHTENING. During the Queens, Manhattan, or Long Island skin tightening procedure, the skin’s top surface (epidermis) is protected through a continuous cooling spray. Laser Skin Tightening’s light-based platform provides a more uniform distribution of energy for heating the deep dermis than other energy sources, such as RF (radiofrequency). This laser tightening technique has proven more effective than Thermage.
What do New York Cosmetic Laser Skin Tightening treatments feel like?
With each Laser Skin Tightening pulse you will feel a brief heating sensation. Some patients are more comfortable taking a mild pain reliever beforehand. Many patients are comfortable without any medication during their Laser Skin Tightening treatment. Your skin tightening practitioner will advise you further. Immediately following Laser Skin Tightening treatment, you may notice some redness and mild swelling in the treated area. Both should dissipate within a few hours.

Patients have been successfully treated with Laser Skin Tightening on many areas of the body. The most common areas treated with skin tightening are the jaw line, under the chin, abdomen, elbows, knees, legs, neck, and breasts/chest.

Since the Laser Skin Tightening procedure heats tissue under the skin’s surface, patients of any skin type or age can be treated.
