Non-Surgical Skin Tightening in Canada

There are generally only 2 options to improve and tighten loose skin: remove it through surgery, or try a non surgical skin tightening procedure. Results from non-surgical skin tightening can be minimal, but frequent sessions can have a tightening effect. Non-surgical skin tightening usually involves a laser that penetrates the skin deeply with a heat. This heat stimulates collagen tightening and promotes new collagen formation, which will make your skin tighten with time. Laser skin tightening can be performed on many areas of the body but is most commonly done on the face, tummy and arms.

Laser skin tightening, like many non-surgical procedures, does not have to be performed by a plastic surgeon, but care should be taken when choosing a clinic as there are risks involved if the treatment is not performed with care. Many Canadian plastic surgeons have medical aesthetic staff performing Laser Skin Tightening treatments at their clinics. Depending on the amount of loose skin you have, you may be a better candidate for surgical removal, and therefore a consultation with a plastic surgeon is recommended to know which option is best for you.
