Why have non-surgical skin tightening treatments become so popular? Non-surgical skin tightening is in high demand because of the minimal risk, little or no downtime, and natural looking results it offers. These treatments are also considered less painful than surgery. But do non-surgical skin tightening treatments hurt at all?
Non-surgical skin tightening
Non-surgical skin tightening typically involves the use of various modalities such as radio frequency or ultrasound energyto tone and tighten the skin, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. They work by heating the collagen fibers in the dermal layer of the skin, in order to kick start the rejuvenation process.
Do non-surgical skin tightening treatments hurt?
It all depends; because it has a lot to do with the type of laser skin tightening treatment being done. Depending on the device, there may be some pain during the procedure.
The amount of discomfort is also influenced by each patient’s pain threshold level. Some patients describe the discomfort as being similar to a rubber band being snapped against the skin, others feel warmth or a tingling sensation, and there are some that feel nothing at all.
