Laser Skin Tightening

Smoother, firmer skin no longer needs to be a distant memory!

Avenue Advanced Skin Care offers an effective and affordable method of tightening wrinkled and sagging skin on the face, abdomen, upper arms, and other areas, though infrared light pulses. At Avenue Advanced Skin Care, we use the Palomar StarLyx® System with LuxIR Fractional™ Infrared Handpiece to deliver this treatment safely, comfortably and effectively with minimal downtime.

How does it work?

The Paloma LuxIR Fractional™ Infrared Handpiece delivers infrared light deep into the dermis. This light causes soft tissue coagulation which leads to remodeling of the collagen within the dermis. This remodeled collagen fills in wrinkles and sagging, for overall skin tightening.

What makes this treatment different from others?

Rather than using one large beam to deliver infrared light into the skin, the LuxIR uses the “Fractional” approach: delivering an array of small beams. Each beam creates a heated column in the dermis, which is surrounded by an unaffected area.  The unaffected tissue stimulates quicker collagen remodeling and faster healing.

What should I expect after treatment?

You may experience lingering warmth, tightness or redness in the treated area, which fades within a few hours of treatment. Because so much of the skin is unaffected by the light pulses, there is a quick healing response. Generally, you can receive a treatment and go back to work or other activities without any recovery time!
A series of treatment at 4-6 week intervals may be required to achieve the desired result of smoother, more toned skin.
