Laser Skin Tightening vs. Laser Skin Rejuvenation

Dear Dr. Brooks,
Can you explain the difference between laser skin tightening and laser skin rejuvenation? I’m trying to figure out what I want.


Dear Confused,
Thank you so much for your question. Laser skin tightening helps improve skin sagging. As we age, the collagen in our skin starts to weaken, resulting in sagging skin: jowl formation, upper eyelid sagging and laugh lines. I use the Titan laser, which heats the collagen, resulting in its contraction and thickening; thereby, decreasing the sagging appearance.

With laser rejuvenation, there is some overlap with the tightening. Both will help stimulate collagen by heating up the skin; the Titan produces a greater amount of energy and can correct sagging. Where the rejuvenation helps with pore size, fine lines and wrinkles, redness and ruddy appearance. I often use a combination of both the Titan laser, IPL and laser genesis to obtain optimal cosmetic results.

Please schedule an appointment to come in to see me, and I can take a look at your skin and give you my recommendation on which would be best for you.
