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.
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.
– Dr. Brooks
