Whether it's on your face or your body, loose and sagging skin may keep you from looking as youthful and fit as you really are. Wouldn't it be nice if you could firm and tighten your skin without a single incision? Now you can, with laser skin tightening treatment in Los Angeles.
Patient education is of the utmost importance to me. I'll provide the information you need to make an informed choice about whether to pursue surgical or non-surgical skin tightening. Together, we'll develop a treatment plan that addresses your concerns.
If you decide that non-surgical skin tightening is the best choice for you, we can discuss your various options, including Thermage®, one of the most popular non-invasive skin tightening treatments.
When compared to surgical options for skin tightening, laser procedures are relatively quick and comfortable. Thermage, although it uses radiofrequency energy rather than laser energy, is also quite comfortable. The laser or radiofrequency energy initiates a process that causes increased collagen production. The new collagen achieves a firmer, tighter skin appearance.
After radiofrequency or laser skin tightening procedures, men and women can return immediately to their usual routine. They'll probably need to come back to see me several times for a series of treatments to achieve the best results.
While these non-invasive procedures can provide highly visible improvement, it's important to note that the results are not as dramatic as those achieved with surgery. For men and women seeking more substantial or longer lasting results, surgery may be a better option. For significant weight loss patients who are frustrated with hanging skin, surgery is usually a better option. The degree of skin laxity for these patients is too advanced for non-invasive techniques alone.
