It’s a question we get a lot: does it hurt? Does laser skin tightening hurt?
The answer is…maybe.
The question of whether laser skin tightening hurts depends on the person and what type of laser skin tightening treatment they’re getting. Some people’s skin is also more sensitive than other people’s. So there are accounts of patients describing discomfort the procedure, patients who describe the treatment as tiny rubber bands snapped against their skin, and patients who feel even less than this and may even find the treatment somewhat relaxing.
How Does Laser Skin Tightening Work?
Technically, it’s like shooting you with a laser gun. Laser skin tightening works by using the heat of laser pulses to “injure” the skin in a very controlled and precise way.
The body responds to this injury by immediately tightening the skin around the area and then producing more of its own collagen and sending it to the injury, as it would do if the skin was accidentally burned or nicked by a shaving razor.
Collagen is key. It’s a springy protein that keeps the skin supple, moist, and plumps it out, thus reducing the looks of wrinkles, lines and scars.
Beautiful and Healthy
Cosmetologists are in the business of making their clients beautiful in healthy ways, and to that end they strive to make any treatments as comfortable and pain free as possible. This is why they are quick to adopt those treatments that create any pain at all and lessen their client’s recovery period.
Modern treatments are considerably more comfortable than the older forms of laser treatment, which used to damage even the healthy skin around the treatment area and led to long and often painful recovery periods.
