Skin rejuvenation removes damaged outer layers of skin and stimulates the production of collagen and new skin cells in the underlying layers, bringing about smoother, younger, healthier-looking skin.
Saggy arms, tummy, and knees can be a dead giveaway to age. Non-invasive skin tightening treatments can firm up slack skin of the body, giving you a more youthful appearance. Skin tightening is a non-surgical process that uses an infrared light source (a laser or radio frequency device) to tighten skin by heating the collagen under the skin’s surface, causing the skin to contract (tighten). Skin tightening may be noticeable immediately after the treatment, but continues to develop 3-6 months after treatment. (Disclaimer: Results may vary)
Treat fine lines, wrinkles, large pores, redness, uneven skin tone, scars, and more with Alma Harmony XL®. While Laser Harmony is generally used to treat the face and neck, other areas can benefit from it, as well. There is no need for topical anesthetics, and most patients report a relaxing, gentle warming sensation during the procedure. The hand piece is held about a ½ inch above your skin and gently heats the upper dermis below the surface. Like other laser treatments, this stimulates natural collagen production. If you are seeking this treatment for redness, we will focus on these dilated capillaries.
To achieve optimal results, four to six treatments are generally recommended, several weeks apart. When you contact the experienced team at Vibrant Rejuvenation Medical Spa and Wellness, we’ll discuss a realistic treatment plan with you. Everyone is different – you may require more or fewer sessions depending on your skin and condition.
What to expect from a Laser Skin Tightening treatment:

How does Laser Skin Tightening Work?

Some of the steps of a typical procedure include;
Completion of a consultation with a skin care specialist. During this consultation discuss your concerns and goals. Every person is unique an needs an individualized plan.
Schedule the Laser Skin Tightening procedure. Pick a time when sun exposure to the treatment area has been minimized to decrease active melanin production at the time of the procedure.
Have the procedure done. It will take forty-five minutes to an hour. The handpiece emits infrared energy and can feel hot on the skin. It’s not excruciating, but there are more enjoyable things to do with your day. Your skin should feel very warm during the procedure.
Follow the post procedure instructions. Particularly important is avoidance of sun exposure.
Improve lifestyle habits that produce damaged skin. Increase healthy food intake that is rich in nutrients good for you and your skin (i.e. oranges for vitamin C), use a sunscreen with physical blocks (i.e. titanium dioxide), add Retin-A, vitamin C and peptides to your skin care regime.
