Laser technology has advanced so that non-surgical skin tightening is possible, offering an alternative if you have slightly loose skin, but are not quite ready for plastic surgery. Slightly loose, sagging skin can be effectively corrected by heating the skin’s underlying layers. This increases collagen production in the skin, resulting in firmer, tighter skin without any downtime. The skin tightening devices available at New You Medical Health and Surgery Center include Exilis and Skintyte II™
Exilis treatments use the energy of radio-frequency to tighten lax skin, reduce wrinkles, and reduce unwanted areas of fat on the face or body in four to six treatments.
The device is able to target the treatment area with an ideal combination of heating and cooling to achieve the best result while providing a comfortable, pain-free treatment.
SkinTyte™ broadband light treatments are an excellent rejuvenative therapy for patients with active lifestyles because of no social down time and immediate results.
This device uses broad-spectrum light energy to improve the texture and quality of the skin by limiting pore size and stimulating collagen production.
Benefits of Skin Tightening Treatments
Skin tightening treatments can be performed on the face, neck, chest, or just about anywhere on the body.
Laser and energy based skin tightening treatments provide the following benefits:
- Tighter, firmer skin
- Improved body shape and contour
- Healthier, more vibrant looking skin in treatment area
What to Expect
Laser skin tightening treatments take from 30-60 minutes per treatment, depending on the area treated. Ultrasound gel will be used during the treatment on the target area so that the device has good contact with the skin, allowing for deep dermal heating. There is no social downtime involved with laser skin tightening treatments. Your skin may appear pink or flushed or feel warm immediately after treatment; this is normal and will disappear within an hour.
Our laser experts at New You Medical Institute recommend a series of four to six treatments for optimal results.
It is important to complete your series of treatments as the results are cumulative, meaning that your skin’s appearance will continue to improve for several months after your last treatment.
