Laser skin tightening

 
Laser skin tightening

After pregnancy, dieting, or simply through ageing, the skin can become saggy and lose its firmness. A recent laser application enables the clock to be turned back and skin to be retightened.
In the same way that wrinkles are treated, the laser stimulates collagen and elastin production through its action in the deep layers of the epidermis, producing a firming effect. Combined with complementary massage treatments, this technique provides good results.

Target: Stomach, inner thighs.
How does it work? The dermis is heated up by the luminous ray, while a skin cooling system is applied on the treated area. This method is practically painless and after-effects are almost non-existent.
Post-treatment: The skin might have some red blotches on it for a few hours after the treatment. They don't last.
Results: Skin is smooth, plumped up with collagen and firmer.
Price: From £750 per session for the entire face or abdomen, and from £300 per session for smaller areas. Not available on the NHS.
