Skin Tightening

Skin Tightening in Edmonton

Nonsurgical skin tightening techniques are cosmetic treatments that can improve the appearance of your face and stomach. These techniques are significantly less intrusive than surgical options such as facelifts and tummy tucks, and some promise to give comparable results. There are also fewer complications, it is less costly, and recovery is straightforward. These therapies are based on cutting-edge technology. That means there is still a study gap in understanding how effective they are and what the long-term negative effects may be. This post will go through the many forms of non-invasive skin tightening treatments, what the study suggests, and what you should think about before you attempt it.

Skin tightening Treatments

Treatments that are non-invasive or minimally invasive can enhance the tone and suppleness of sagging skin. They are most effective when accompanied by healthy lifestyle habits such as avoiding smoking and never sunbathing. A dermatologist performs these treatments, which include:

Laser treatment. Several laser therapy treatments can aid in collagen formation and overall skin tone improvement. The majority of people have the best outcomes after numerous treatments. Laser therapy can help firm the upper arms and stomach, among other body parts.

Resurfacing using a laser. This extremely successful surgery also employs a laser, but it is more intrusive and requires a longer recovery, often two weeks. Laser resurfacing removes the top layers of skin while sending heat deep into the layers underneath. Laser peeling is another term for it.

Focused Ultrasound (HIFU). This treatment uses heat to penetrate deep into the skin’s layers, promoting collagen formation and lifting sagging skin. It may take many months before you see an improvement in the firmness and suppleness of your skin. Ultrasound findings are not permanent and generally last approximately a year.

Laser Skin Tightening is a series of laser treatments performed with the Candela GentleYAG laser to stimulate dermal collagen formation and the regeneration of damaged skin cells. The Gentle YAG’s single-wavelength light energy targets fibroblasts in the dermis, which create new collagen in reaction to laser energy. Skin cell turnover is also increased, which aids in the regeneration and replacement of damaged cells.
Because the new dermal collagen that is created becomes a part of the structure of the treated skin, Laser Skin Tightening can offer skin benefits that endure for years. GentleYAG skin tightening is so effective that fresh collagen creation might last for months following the procedure. The majority of patients report quick improvement, with even more spectacular outcomes weeks later. New collagen formation leads to sustained skin tightening and the creation of a more youthful complexion with fewer wrinkles, folds, and skin looseness. Continued sun exposure will result in the degradation of both existing and new collagen over time; therefore, it is critical to safeguard your results by minimizing sun exposure, using a high-SPF sunscreen, and following a healthy and scientifically sound skincare programme.
Yes, we combine other laser systems (Titan, Fraxel, HydraFaceial.) have been created to promote skin collagen formation, none have been shown to be as successful as the Candela GentleYAG. The GentleYAG laser boasts more watts of power than any other skin tightening laser, making it more effective in generating new collagen. The Laser Skin Tightening treatment methods that we utilize were created by Albany Cosmetic and Laser Centre in Edmonton and have since been adopted by medical offices and medical spas all across the country and the world.
Yes. It may be used to treat any region of the body that could benefit from softer, smoother skin, wrinkle reduction, pore size, texture improvement, or acne scar removal. They can deliver attractive firm skin on the face, neck, chest, upper arms, legs, and other body regions with no downtime and no potentially harmful numbing medications.
Clinical studies indicate that 4-6 treatments spaced 2 to 4 weeks apart will result in a considerable increase in dermal collagen, remodeling of dermal matrix components, and an improvement in overall skin tone and vitality in most situations. Consultations are performed at no cost to discover if you are a candidate for Laser Skin Tightening. During your initial appointment, a skilled laser technician will examine the treatment area and create a personalized treatment plan to fit your specific aesthetic objectives.
Mostly no. There is no downtime or outward skin damage with some treatments. Following the treatment, a person can return to work or reapply for cosmetics. In just one hour, the entire face and neck may be treated. Others such as Fraxel and Fotona might need some time off work

Skin Tightening in Edmonton

Nonsurgical skin tightening techniques are cosmetic treatments that can improve the appearance of your face and stomach. These techniques are significantly less intrusive than surgical options such as facelifts and tummy tucks, and some promise to give comparable results. There are also fewer complications, less costly, and recovery is straightforward. These therapies are based on cutting-edge technology. That means there is still a study gap in understanding how effective they are and what the long-term negative effects may be. This post will go through the many forms of non-invasive skin tightening treatments, what the study suggests, and what you should think about before attempting it.

Skin tightening treatments

Skin tightening treatments come in a variety of forms. When you are born, your skin is full of proteins called elastin and collagen. These proteins provide your skin structure and flexibility. As you become older, your body’s manufacturing of these proteins slows down. As a result, your skin begins to lose suppleness. Gravity, pollution, stress, and the hundreds of motions your face muscles perform every day can cause your skin to stretch or droop. Other circumstances, such as pregnancy and weight loss, can also lead to stretch marks and drooping skin. Nonsurgical skin tightening treatments target regions of your skin that have grown loose and encourage collagen formation beneath the epidermis. As previously stated, we can use various techniques to help rejuvenate the skin and overcome and reverse the effects of aging. The treatment of choice for skin tightening is determined by the client’s current skin condition, skin color, the presence of contraindications, the amount of downtime allowed, and the client’s financial situation. The most commonly used skin tightening technologies in Edmonton are Fraxel laser, a fractional non-ablative laser, radiofrequency micro-needling such as Fractora RF microneedling, Ulthera, Microdermabrasion, Filler, and Botox. Albany Laser and Cosmetic Center does not limit our clients to a single technology.

  • Botox and fillers

This is a popular cosmetic injectable that can be used for upper and midface augmentation. If you want to learn more, we have created a special section for fillers and Botox.

  • Threading

PDO threading is a newer semi-invasive technique for providing non-surgical lift. The best results are obtained by tightening the nasolabial folds, the lower face, and the neck. More information on threads can be found here.

  • Ulthera

Ulthera employs focused ultrasound waves to heat the skin at a deeper level and aid in the production of collagen. Please visit this page to learn more about Ulthera.

  • HydraFacial

This is a gentle treatment that provides superficial resurfacing and is an excellent way to keep the results of other treatments. More information on Microdermabrasion can be found here.

  • Cold Laser Er-Yag Fotona

Fotona is one of the best laser machines in the aesthetic laser world. We can perform various skin peels using different modes of Er-Yag laser (cold laser), ranging from non-fraction ablative to fraction non-ablative. It also has a new handpiece for intraoral laser treatment, which can help with deep wrinkles.
