Are you dissatisfied with the way that your skin sags on your face? If so, then you may want to explore the option of laser skin tightening. Not all plastic surgeries involve going under the knife. In fact, there are many outpatient procedures that you can have to improve your look and your confidence. Skin tightening is used to correct skin laxity and improve skin quality.
You may want to consider non-surgical skin tightening if you have mild to moderate loose skin on your face, neck, arms, or abdomen. If you have residual skin laxity after an operative procedure, or if you would like an improvement in the quality of your skin, some laser or radiofrequency techniques may be the solution for you. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, non-surgical skin tightening is also the perfect choice for people that are not looking for drastic results and do not want to undergo an invasive procedure.
There are several different types of non-surgical skin tightening. Our professional staff and board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Yuly Gorodisky, can explain the different procedures to you and help you to decide the best way to achieve your desired result. From laser skin resurfacing, chemical peels or radio frequency treatments, there are nonsurgical ways to improve skin laxity. The surgical options may provide more drastic and longer lasting effects, and Dr. Gorodisky performs those as well.
Because non-surgical skin tightening does not involve incisions, there is no fear of scarring. Also, there is minimal discomfort and often shorter recovery time. The results are less extensive than a surgical procedure and sometimes multiple treatments are required. There is a possibility of skin redness or swelling after the procedure but this often disappears after a short amount of time. Non-surgical skin tightening will usually need to be maintained with regular follow up treatments.
