How long does laser skin tightening last?

Fractional laser skin resurfacing is a one-off treatment that can have drastic impact on skin quality, with lasting results

What is laser skin rejuvenation?

As we age, our skin naturally develops signs of ageing in the form of unwanted lines, wrinkles, blemishes and scarring.

At Zen Medispa, we use the ICON laser system, which works by delivering precise energy pulses through the top two layers of the skin, making tiny holes. This energy stimulates the body to produce more collagen so healthy new skin can grow and replace the old, ageing skin. This treatment can make skin firmer and smoother, and gives it a lovely, healthy glow.

How to prevent anti-ageing skin

Laser Skin Rejuvenation is a unique treatment, that can help to prevent signs of ageing.

Any patients with the following can benefit from the ICON laser system:

  • Surgical scars
  • Acne scars
  • Brown spots
  • Stretch marks
  • Pores
  • Fine lines
  • Leg veins

How does the laser work?

For some patients, this procedure can be an uncomfortable process. At Zen Medispa, we try to ensure your comfort by applying a combination of topical and oral analgesics one hour before the procedure. The ICON laser in then gently glided across the skin, heated up the collagen as needed. The skin will gradually tighten, as it undergoes the recovery process, creating a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance over time. Despite this, patients sometimes describe a sunburn like sensation which can last for several hours. A moisturising wrap is applied afterwards to ease any discomfort. The length of the procedure depends on the treatment areas, but on average, a full-face treatment takes about two hours, while particular areas of the face take less time.

What are the results from the laser?

With laser skin rejuvenation, you usually see results within 3-4 days but will be able to see an immediate difference to the skin. Over time results will be most noticeable after the second or third treatment. The results are generally permanent but cannot stop the signs of ageing. In case of deep lines, a touch up treatment may be required at 3 to 6 months.

Is laser skin tightening for you?

Zen Medispa recommends laser treatment is for anyone who wants youthful and flawless skin. However, it may not be ideal for people with a dark complexion, a history of scarring from burns, or exposure to radiation of the desired treatment area.
