Laser treatments have the added benefit of triggering collagen production in the skin, which produce significant skin tightening benefits. Rosenthal Cosmetic Plastic Surgery and Dermatology is proud to offer laser skin tightening to residents living in Boynton Beach, Delray Beach and Wellington, FL.
What is Laser Skin Tightening?
Laser skin tightening uses gentle laser energy to trigger collagen production in the body while simultaneously tightening the skin with a heating element. The heating component causes the skin to contract and tighten, while an increase in collagen rejuvenates skin on a deeper level. Laser skin tightening is a popular alternative to a facelift and other invasive techniques because it effectively reduces wrinkles and lines without the associated scarring, surgery, and lengthy downtime. We perform laser skin tightening using a CO2 laser, a non-ablative ICON® laser, or the Thermi system, depending on the patient’s skin type and treatment goals.
How Much Does Laser Skin Tightening Cost?
The cost of laser skin tightening will vary based on your unique needs and treatment goals. During your consultation, we take many things into consideration to design a personalized treatment plan that will optimize your results and treatment experience. Once this treatment plan is determined, we will be able to provide you with a clear breakdown of the costs associated with your laser skin tightening treatment. For your convenience, we accept cash, checks, credit cards, and financing through CareCredit®.
What Are My Laser Skin Tightening Options?
In addition to standard laser skin tightening treatments, we are proud to offer the following minimally-invasive skin tightening solutions that use the gentle radiofrequency energy of the Thermi system:
- ThermiTight® – ThermiTight® uses radiofrequency energy to heat specific groups of tissue in the body, causing them to tighten, reducing the appearance of wrinkles. This treatment also stimulates collagen production for long-lasting benefits and results. ThermiTight® is commonly used on the arms, neck, breasts, abdomen, and legs.
- ThermiSmooth® – ThermiSmooth® is a non-invasive skin tightening solution for the face and body. During this treatment, a small handpiece is massaged around the treatment area, delivering radiofrequency energy to tighten the skin and trigger collagen production.
- ThermiRase® – ThermiRase® is specifically designed to address wrinkles and lines on the forehead and in the neck. It works similarly to Botox® and other injectable treatments, targeting and disabling nerves that are responsible for muscle contraction and thereby diminishing wrinkles. Many men and women choose this over dermal fillers and injectables because it is a toxin-free solution.
What Can I Expect During the Laser Skin Tightening Procedure?
Before a laser skin tightening treatment, we will apply a topical anesthetic to the treatment area to minimize any discomfort that may occur during treatment. Then, we will carefully deliver laser energy to the desired treatment area using the laser that best matches your skin type and treatment goals. A laser skin tightening treatment typically only takes about an hour to perform, but the treatment time can vary depending on the size and number of areas being treated.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Laser Skin Tightening?
The results from laser skin tightening are visible immediately because the skin contracts and tightens during treatment. Thanks to the added benefit of increased collagen production, men and women often notice a gradual improvement in their results for a few months to come. In some cases, however, multiple treatment sessions will be necessary to achieve your desired results. Different laser techniques require different amounts of treatment, and we will determine the treatment approach that is best for you during your initial consultation.
What is the Recovery Period Like Following Laser Skin Tightening?
Laser skin tightening is a popular treatment because it requires practically no downtime. You may experience minor redness or sensitivity in the treatment area, but these effects typically fade within a day or two. You are usually able to return to work and other normal activities within a day of treatment.
