Skin Tightening After Substantial Weight Loss, Using a Novel 0.65 millisecond Pulsed Nd:YAG 1064nm Laser

Pamela Bennett, RN, Family Care, Douglas, GA

A female patient presented with skin laxity in various anatomical sites, after losing 86 lbs over a 12-month period through diet and exercise. The patient initially received skin tightening treatments in the facial areas and arms with a 0.65msec pulsed Nd:YAG 1064nm laser (Neo, Aerolase, Tarrytown, NY); she was highly satisfied and then inquired about receiving the same treatment for skin tightening in the buttocks area. The laser treatment was well tolerated without any anesthesia or any form of skin cooling; the patient reported no treatment discomfort and no complications were observed. Mild erythema either didn’t appear at all, or resolved within a few hours after treatment. The effect of the laser treatments produced positive outcomes in terms of a noticeable reduction in the laxity of treated skin; the patient rated her satisfaction as Very High.
