Tips on Preparing for a Skin Tightening Procedure

Are you interested in getting a firm figure but you don’t want to commit to invasive surgery? If so, laser skin tightening is a great way to get the firm look you want, without the pain of extensive surgery. Laser skin tightening is also much more affordable than traditional cosmetic surgery and is safe for any part of the body, even your face.

Here at Atlantis Clinic, we have a range of skin tightening treatments that are customized to each patient. You will notice a reduction of fine lines, smoother texture, and increased collagen output after the procedure which will leave you looking rejuvenated.

Laser Skin Tightening – What Is It?

Skin tightening via laser is a treatment that targets the layers of skin that are damaged by stimulating new skin cell and collagen production. The end result is skin that is smoother, looks younger, and is much healthier than before the treatment.

Where Can Laser Skin Tightening Be Used?

Skin tightening via laser can be used on any part of the body, such as:

  • The butt – often used to correct flat butt cheeks, fat deposits, and cellulite.
  • The stomach – often used to correct fatty deposits, adjust skin tone due to aging, and tighten skin after birth.
  • Chest – commonly used to adjust breast due to age, breastfeeding, or sagging.
  • Thighs & legs – commonly used to correct fatty deposits and cellulite.
  • Neck and jowls – often used to help correct loose skin around the cheeks, neck, and jaw.

Here at Atlantis Clinic, we have a team of experts dedicated to creating a realistic plan for your skin tightening goals. We will work with you to make sure all of your concerns are addressed, and your aesthetic desires are achieved.

Getting Ready for Your Treatment

When you prepare in advance for your treatment, you help ensure that you will get the most out of your skin tightening treatment. Not only will you be mentally prepared, but you will also be physically ready for your procedure making it safer and more effective.

Before your skin tightening starts, you will need to have a consultation with one of our specialists. We will go over your medical history, speak about any past procedures, find out what medications you are taking, and if you have any medical issues that would interfere with the procedure.

Our specialist will then give you a quick exam to go over the areas on your skin that will be treated. Not only will it give us a visual idea of what to expect, but it will also allow us to craft a customized treatment plan that is built around your specific skin, tone, age and desired results.

Talk about Your Results

It’s important to understand just what you are expecting to get out of your procedure. We will go over all of the risks involved, which are minimal, and also speak with you about realistic expectations of your treatment results.

We will also explain how long you need to recover, and steps you should take to protect your skin while it heals after the procedure. Some may include:

  • Avoiding the tanning bed while healing
  • Using SPF 50+ sunscreen and limiting sun exposure
  • Reducing perfumes and fragrant lotions prior to and on the day of treatment
  • Shaving before and after treatment

It’s always important to follow pre & post treatment directions that we provide to ensure you get the best results from your procedure.
