One of the most state-of-the-art skin rejuvenation technologies available at our practice is the Q-Switched YAG pixelated laser – a system designed to help you tighten areas of loose, inelastic skin in the face and neck. The YAG laser can help you reduce signs of age and excess skin in these areas in a virtually painless procedure with little to no recovery time necessary after treatment. This innovative procedure here at the Vein & Cosmetic Center of Tampa Bay can effectively stimulate the skin’s natural collagen and give you firmer, more youthful-looking skin.
The Q-Switched YAG pixelated laser targets areas of loose, sagging skin along the face and neck with the goal of providing these areas with a smoother and tighter appearance. The laser produces a high-powered beam of energy that penetrates the skin deep under the surface, helping to stimulate collagen and replenish the skin’s outer layers. Q-Switched YAG laser treatment requires no shots or numbing injections, and is virtually painless. The entire procedure usually takes only about 20 minutes to complete, depending on each patient’s individual needs.
The most optimal effects from Q-Switched YAG Laser treatment can typically be attained with three to four treatment sessions spaced over a period of weeks.
Recovery from Q-Switched YAG Laser Treatment
One of the many benefits of Q-Switched YAG Laser treatment is that it requires almost no recovery time. While there may be some redness and a mild sunburn feeling after the procedure, these effects should subside within the next few days, and most patients are able to resume normal daily routines immediately after treatment.
