Skin Tightening Q & A

What happens during a skin tightening procedure?

Laser skin tightening involves moving a handheld laser device over your treatment area. The laser penetrates through your skin and heats underlying tissues to therapeutic levels, without the risk of burning your skin.

As these deep skin tissues heat up, cells regenerate and new tissues — including skin-firming collagen — begin building up. Over time, your skin smooths out, becomes thicker, and even gets tighter as these brand new collagen fibers gradually start stacking neatly on top of one another.

Am I a candidate for laser skin tightening?

Laser skin tightening from Integrity Aesthetics MD is ideal for reversing the effects of aging and restoring your youthful glow. Though not a substitute for a face-lift, laser skin tightening can enhance a face-lift procedure or even serve as an alternative if you don’t want to go through a painful and invasive procedure.

This innovative treatment might be right for you if you have:

  • Mild-to-moderate lines and wrinkles
  • Loose or crepey skin
  • Double chin

Integrity Aesthetics MD is home to some of the industry’s top-rated medical laser systems. Dr. Shortz has a laser skin tightening solution no matter which area you want to have treated.

When will I see results after laser skin tightening?

One of the reasons why Dr. Shortz offers fractional laser skin tightening treatments is because you can experience dramatic results, without going through any significant downtime. You might have some slight redness or inflammation initially, although these minor side effects fade away within a couple of days.

You can experience dramatic results anywhere from four to six weeks after your laser skin tightening treatment at Integrity Aesthetics MD. To achieve optimal benefits, Dr. Shortz could recommend a package of two to three monthly skin tightening services, followed up by once or twice a year touch-up sessions.
