Skin Tightening in Edmonton
Skin tightening is a broad term that encompasses a wide range of issues such as wrinkle treatment, both deep and fine, scar removal, improving skin texture, and wrinkle removal. The approach to skin tightening in Edmonton is primarily determined by the client’s primary issue or concern; thus, we must spend adequate time counselling and discussing with the client before deciding on the best treatment. There are various methods for achieving the best results. One or more of the following treatments could be combined:
Fraxel laser, which has two wavelengths and fractional technology, is the gold standard for wrinkle and pigmentation removal. It is appropriate for all skin types and has a brief social downtime. It also offers skin resurfacing and rejuvenation to help with skin texture. Please visit this page to learn more about Fraxel.
Fractora and Thermage
Microneedles are coated and non-coated and can penetrate the skin up to 3 mm. It promotes optimal healing of the skin layers, enhancing skin rejuvenation and the production of natural fillers and proteins such as collagen.

Thermage employs unipolar fractional radiofrequency waves that do not penetrate the skin.

What is the most effective skin tightening treatment?
The term “skin tightening” is a broad one. Face treatments are used to remove fine lines and deep wrinkles. This is accomplished by peeling the epidermis, the skin’s outer layer, and inducing fibroblasts to produce collagen. Collagen is the primary protein that generates volume and supports the skin’s outer layer. As we get older, our skin loses elasticity and our fibroblasts lose their ability to produce this natural filler. Other factors influencing skin well-being include photoaging caused by prolonged sun exposure, smoking, poor skin care, and hygiene.
Skin tightening or skin rejuvenation?
As previously stated, we can use various techniques to help rejuvenate the skin and overcome and reverse the effects of ageing. The treatment of choice for skin tightening is determined by the client’s current skin condition, skin colour, 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 Infini, 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.
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 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.
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 hand-piece for intraoral laser treatment, which can help with deep wrinkles.
