Laser Skin Toning

Also known as: Non-ablative Laser Remodeling, Skin tightening 


Skin tightening tucson
Conditions Treated
  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Mottled skin color, dull complexion, skin laxity
  • Red flushed skin (Rosacea)
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Irregular skin texture (Scaly, rough dry skin patches)
  • Scars (Acne scarring or other causes)
  • Aging, red or discolored necks/chest

Treatment Overview

The goal is to approach the results of Laser Skin Toning by using specific Laser and/or light sources on the skin to affect changes both on the surface as well as in deeper structures without creating a wound or significant healing time. The light targets the dermis primarily to create enough inflammation to stimulate and generate new collagen and thereby improve skin quality, tone, texture and laxity.

No Downtime Devices
  • Pulsed Dye Lasers (Vbeam) target superficial dermal vessels to create heat in the dermis to stimulate collagen.
  • Infrared Lasers (Gentle:YAG, Sciton and Smoothbeam,) deeply penetrate and target water in the dermis to stimulate collagen.
  • Intense Pulsed Light (Palomar Starlux) though not a Laser this device uses an intense broad band of Light to stimulate changes on the surface as well as under the skin.

Minimal Downtime Devices

  • Fractional Lasers (Palomar Starlux) provides a unique controlled microscopic array of Laser pulses to the skin for optimal skin tightening for scars and wrinkles with minimal visible skin wounding.

Frequently Asked Questions

How many treatments will I need?
Depending on the areas treated and the degree of improvement desired, it is recommended to have at least 3 to as many as 8 treatments. Skin tightening treatments are performed in our office under Dr. Goldberg’s supervision and take from 30-60 minutes depending on the devices utilized.

What will recovery be like?
Most people will be slightly red and occasionally slightly swollen for 12-48 hours after the procedure. Usually you will be able to apply a bit of make up as desired and resume all normal activities immediately after a treatment. Rarely a small superficial localized blister can occur which takes a few days to heal. Following treatment with the fractional device, one may experience a few days of redness and some fine scaling for a number of days.

What results can I expect?

Results will vary from patient to patient. Most people will experience some degree of improvement in the color, tone and/or texture of the skin. While perhaps not as dramatic as with Laser Skin Resurfacing, the results are usually better than with superficial peels or Microdermabrasion. Most people state that their skin feels smoother or the fine lines are diminished or that their skin appears smoother and “healthier” after a series of treatments. While it is hard to objectively measure improvement, we will document your progress with photographs before and after your treatments.
