As the ideal alternative to surgery but not a replacement, skin tightening treatment effectively tightens excess skin on the neck, cheeks, eyelids and forehead at a fraction of the cost of invasive surgery procedures.
As gravity and the aging process naturally take place skin loses its elasticity and youthful appearance. Skin tightening works by heating the underlying fat layers in the skin and stimulating the formation of new collagen and elastin resulting in smoother, younger-looking skin. Skin tightening procedures may be performed non-ablatively with the GentleYag laser. Other instruments such as radio frequency energy based devices such as Thermage tm have been successfully used to perform skin tightening on the face, neck, abdomen, and arms.
