Overview

Regrettably, wrinkles are not restricted to crow’s feet and frown lines. Many of the lines and folds that appear on the skin are the result of skin laxity, as the abundance of collagen fibres that maintain skin firmness are diminished over time. Fortunately, face lifts are no longer the only solution to this aging dilemma: Kelowna and Okanagan Valley patients can realize noticeable improvements for static wrinkles with non-invasive skin tightening technology.

How it Works

Advanced Nd:YAG laser technology integrates a super long pulse duration that safely builds heat in the dermis without affecting the top layers of the skin. This initiates collagen remodelling and synthesis to rejuvenate the supportive network of fibres, resulting in firmer and tighter skin.

Recovery & Results

Some mild redness and swelling may occur post-treatment, which can be easily concealed. With this no-downtime device, patients can expect an immediate return to their daily activities. Results can be realized with one treatment; however a series of 3-5 treatments, spaced one month apart, yields optimal tightening results. The skin firming benefits continue to develop over the subsequent weeks and months following the treatment(s) as new collagen is synthesized. Follow-up sessions are recommended one to two times a year to maintain results.
