Skin tightening treatments can help address a number of skin flaws, including cellulite, wrinkles, stretch marks, and more. Dr. David Brothers of Plastic Surgery Centre of Atlanta offers multiple skin tightening lasers for an effective, personalized treatment. Skin tightening treatments are available to men and women living in Atlanta, Smyrna, Midtown, and the neighboring areas of Georgia.
What is Skin Tightening?
Skin tightening is an advanced laser treatment that can be used to address a range of skin flaws and imperfections. This is a popular solution for many skin conditions because it is a comfortable, non-invasive treatment that does not require any downtime. At Plastic Surgery Centre of Atlanta, we use the Venus Legacy™ and Venus Viva™ lasers for skin tightening treatments.
Venus Legacy™ Laser
The Venus Legacy™ uses cutting-edge radiofrequency technology to deliver safe and comfortable laser energy to the body. This laser is versatile enough to treat nearly any area on the body, and it can be adjusted to suit even the most sensitive skin types. The Venus Legacy™ is ideal for boosting collagen and smoothing out wrinkles and cellulite.
Venus Viva™ Laser
The Venus Viva™ laser is an excellent solution for treating many kinds of skin damage, including acne scars, stretch marks, and uneven skin texture. It is one of the most customizable devices in the industry, allowing us to provide each patient with a completely personalized treatment.
What are the Benefits of Skin Tightening?
Skin tightening is a versatile treatment that is appropriate for all skin types and all ages. With skin tightening treatments, patients can address the following:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Stretch marks
- Acne and rosacea
- Enlarged pores
What Should I Expect from My Skin Tightening Treatment?
Skin tightening is a gentle, non-invasive treatment that is performed exclusively with laser energy. This energy is carefully monitored and delivered to ensure that you remain entirely comfortable during your treatment. The treatment typically causes a warming sensation on the skin. If you find this uncomfortable, the intensity can be adjusted to better suit you. A skin tightening treatment will last between 15 and 30 minutes depending on the size and number of areas being treated.
What Should I Expect After My Skin Tightening Treatment?
Skin tightening treatments use non-invasive laser energy, resulting in a much gentler treatment than other cosmetic techniques. This means that patients will have no downtime or recovery period following their skin tightening treatments. In some cases, patients who have skin tightening treatments with the Viva™ laser will experience mild redness for up to 24 hours after treatment. However, this is a natural part of the treatment process and will fade on its own.
When Will I Notice Results from Treatment?
Skin tightening treatments work by stimulating collagen production in the skin. As the increase in collagen begins to take effect, you will notice a gradual improvement in the tightness and appearance of the skin. Multiple treatments are often necessary in order to achieve your desired results. Most patients will notice results within a few weeks of treatment, with more significant results becoming visible approximately two to three months after your appointment.
