As the youth goes away, many physical and health problems start affecting a person. Skin also bears the brunt of these less-than-exciting changes. Sagginess of the skin is a common aging issue that can have adverse effects on the overall appearance. Several factors can cause this problem, but the loss of collagen is the main reason behind it. Fortunately, numerous options are available for treating this problem. Laser Skin Tightening is one of the most effective non-invasive treatments for rejuvenating aging skin in Dubai. It counters the effects of aging and gravity on the skin by removing fine lines and wrinkles. As a result, the skin becomes smoother, tighter, and firmer.

Before the procedure, the practitioner will take your medical history and perform a physical examination of the treatment area.
During the consultation, the doctor will give you several instructions. Make sure to abide by these instructions to achieve the desired results from laser skin tightening in Dubai.
- Limit your sun exposure before the laser treatment.
- Wear broad-spectrum sunscreen (SPF 40 and above) before going out in the sun.
- Stop tanning and sunbathing for at least 2-3 weeks before laser skin tightening.
- Avoid smoking to promote speedy healing after treatment.
- Discontinue using products containing Retinoids and hydroxyl acids a week before the procedure.
- Only use topical products recommended by the clinician.

The procedure of laser skin tightening is quick and simple. It involves the following steps
- First of all, the dermatologist washes the treatment area with an antibacterial solution or wipes it with alcohol swabs to make it germ-free.
- A cooling gel is applied thoroughly to the treatment site.
- Laser beams are made incident at the treatment site using a handheld device. Laser beams bypass the top layers of the skin and work at a deeper level.
- Laser treatments can cause superficial thermal injury, leading to controlled wounds on the skin, which stimulate collagen remodeling.
- Ultimately, the skin improves its health and gets suppler and naturally elastic. Some results can be seen right away. However, the final results take some time as both elastin and collagen level continues to move upward.
Multiple sessions are needed to get the desired results. The doctor who is treating you determines the exact number of sessions. Each session is generally performed after a gap of four to six weeks from the previous one. It is to ensure that the skin has fully recovered.
Some general post-procedural care instructions are given below
- Expect some redness, itching, and swelling in the treated area. The duration and intensity of side effects can vary from person to person.
- Use ice packs to soothe the skin in case of experiencing burning sensations in the treated areas.
- Do not rub or massage the skin for 10 days post-procedure.
- Avoid exposing treated areas to direct sunlight for at least 2-3 months after the treatment.
- Wear strong sunscreen to protect treated areas from sun damage.
- Keep your skin adequately hydrated as well as moisturized.
- Use skincare products prescribed by the doctor. Retinoids and hydroxyl acids remain a big no for another 2-3 weeks post-treatment.
- Do not pick or scratch at the scabs and crusts that may form due to laser skin tightening.
