Laser Skin Tightening in Princeton, New Jersey

If you’re concerned about loose skin that’s caused by your age, pregnancy, or significant weight loss, laser skin tightening may be an excellent option for correcting this problem. Dr. Jill Hazen is happy to offer this procedure, which has proven to be highly effective for cases of mild to moderate skin laxity.

What is laser skin tightening?

Lasers are used to solve a wide range of cosmetic concerns, including facial or body skin that has lost its firm, elastic quality. If you’re bothered by loose, sagging skin after pregnancy, weight loss, or because of aging, laser skin tightening can help restore smooth, firm skin — giving you a more youthful appearance. Laser skin tightening is minimally invasive and delivers quick results without the side effects or recovery time required by a surgical procedure.

Advantages of laser skin tightening

  • No scarring
  • Non-invasive
  • No anesthesia or incisions
  • Performed in-office
  • Little to no discomfort during treatment
  • Minimal downtime
  • Fast results
  • Long-lasting results
  • Low risk of adverse reactions

How laser skin tightening works

Laser skin tightening activates your body’s wound-healing response, which stimulates the production of brand-new collagen, a protein essential to healthy, elastic skin. During treatment, laser energy is directed at selected areas of loose, wrinkled skin.

Working slowly, the hand-held device passes over the area, delivering pulses of light into the deep layers of the skin without damaging the outer layer of skin. In the weeks and months following a laser skin tightening treatment, the body’s collagen supply increases and the targeted skin gradually takes on a smoother and firmer appearance.

Laser skin tightening treatment details

Your skin will be cleansed and prepped for treatment, and you will be given protective eyewear. A topical anesthetic may be applied, and the hand-held device will be moved over your skin, emitting pulses of light into the deep layers of the skin. Laser skin tightening does not cause significant discomfort. You may feel the mild heat of the laser alternated with cooling blasts of air from the treatment handpiece. Depending on what area you’re having treated, your session time may take 30 to 60 minutes. While some patients see results after just one laser skin tightening treatment, most need 2 to 3 sessions for optimal results.
