Laser Collagen Treatments for Skin Issues: “Laser collagen treatments are safe and effective for restoring a firmer, more youthful appearance to skin anywhere on the body."

Many people notice signs of aging when skin begins to sag around the face and neck or when darker pigmentation appears. Laser collagen treatments are appropriate for men and women of all skin types and skin tones who wish to achieve dramatic results without painful surgery and lengthy recovery times, according to Hilda Demirjian, owner of Hilda Demirjian Laser and Skin Care Center. A noninvasive, FDA-approved facial rejuvenation option, laser collagen skin treatments reduce the appearance of wrinkles, dark spots, dark circles under the eyes, dullness of the skin, and loose skin for a smoother and more youthful appearance, she says.

The process uses an infrared light source—a laser—to tighten skin by heating the natural collagen in the dermis (deep) layer under the skin’s surface, causing the more surface epidermis skin layer to contract and tighten. During a session, the practitioner uses a hand-held laser to apply brief pulses of energy to the skin. A continuous burst of cool air from the laser ensures patients› comfort. Sessions normally last from 30 minutes to one hour, depending on the size and location of the area to be treated.

According to Demirjian, most people require two or three treatments about a month apart, but additional treatments may be needed depending on the issue being addressed. Facial skin tightening is noticeable immediately after the treatment, she says, and there is no downtime after the procedure.

“Laser collagen treatments are safe and effective for restoring a firmer, more youthful appearance to skin anywhere on the body. They also encourage the growth of new collagen in the treated areas and promote the absorption of more collagen from surrounding untreated areas,” Demirjian says. “With the regeneration of natural collagen, patients immediately begin to notice smoother, softer skin and a more youthful appearance. The effects continue to improve over time following laser treatment, as the skin’s natural stores of collagen are gradually replenished.”
