What is Skin Tightening?
Skin tightening is a non-invasive laser treatment developed to restore a healthier, younger looking appearance. Miami Dermatology and Laser Institute offers several methods of skin tightening. The physicians determine which one is best suited for each patient’s desired look based on the condition of their skin and the extent of the treatments to achieve the desired look. Skin tightening includes a combination of carbon dioxide or Erbium laser, Infini, eMatrix, non-ablative fractional laser and other mechanical machines.
Benefits of Skin Tightening
Skin tightening smooths skin by boosting collagen production to plump the underlayers of tissue. It also offers the following benefits:
- Minimal to no discomfort
- No recovery or downtime
- Long-lasting results
- Results often in one treatment
How is Skin Tightening Performed?
Skin tightening is typically performed using a type of laser treatment. The light energy from the laser penetrates the deep layers of skin boosting collagen production. When this happens, the layers of tissue plump up causing the surface layers to become smoother. Skin tightening treatments may be performed on many areas of the body – most often, the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, and neck.
What Should I Expect from Skin Tightening?
Fortunately, with skin tightening, there is no downtime or recovery. Most patients go back to their daily activities immediately following their treatment. The results take several weeks to fully reveal themselves although they are subtle. As with any cosmetic surgery procedure or treatment, the goal is to look better without knowing what has been done.
Am I a Good Candidate for Skin Tightening?
If you have noticeably sagging skin from age, over-exposure to the sun, a significant weight loss or any other reason, you may be a good candidate for skin tightening. We recommend you schedule a consultation with Dr. Waibel or another dermatologist for an evaluation of your skin to determine if skin tightening or another treatment is the best option to get the look you want.
