When it comes to resolving skin issues, laser treatments are a very appealing option. These treatments are non-invasive; since there are never any scalpels or needles, laser treatments are a form of completely scar-free cosmetic enhancement. One type of laser treatment available at Laser MD Medspa is laser skin tightening.
Is Laser Skin Tightening Right for Me?
Laser skin tightening is the perfect solution for lax skin on the face, stomach, neck, arms, and many other areas. Both men and women can benefit from undergoing laser skin tightening in Boston. Laser skin tightening is an excellent option for patients with visible but not severe skin laxity and younger patients looking to combat signs of premature aging.

How Does Laser Skin Tightening Work?
How exactly does laser skin tightening work? The key is collagen. The collagen protein in the skin is what helps it conform tightly to the contours of the body. Unfortunately, with age, we begin to naturally produce less collagen protein. As a result, the skin becomes less elastic and droops.
Laser skin tightening uses heat energy to encourage the production of more collagen in the skin layers. The higher the level of collagen in the skin, the smoother, firmer, and more youthful the skin looks and feels.
During treatment, the laser pulses energy at the target area of the body. To protect the surface of the skin from the heat, a Dynamic Cooling Device™ (DCD™) cools the skin before each pulse of the laser. You’ll immediately notice results from the treatment, and these will only get better with time as collagen continues to grow.
What You Should Know About Laser Skin Tightening
The skin will be red and irritated following laser skin tightening. It may feel sensitive to the touch, similar to a sunburn. After around seven days, the skin may become dry and begin to peel. The skin may appear red for around two weeks. it is important to avoid direct sunlight as much as possible and to apply sunscreen to the treated areas.
The cost of your laser skin tightening in Boston will depend on factors like the size of the area treated. At Laser MD Medspa, we do offer financing options to help our patients pay for their treatments.
