What Is Skin Tightening?

Throughout our younger years, we can enjoy a rich reserve of natural nutrients, which keeps our complexion soft and taut. In time, this essential storage of vitamins can diminish, making these tissues lose volume. This leads to lines, wrinkles, and a sagging appearance. By utilizing modern laser devices, such as Opus Plasma®, Hybrid™, and Morpheus8™, noninvasive skin tightening works to boost the production of elastin and collagen so you can develop tighter, radiant skin. Dr. Linda Sodoma and her team are pleased to offer nonsurgical skin tightening for patients who desire to renew and enhance their skin with sought-after noninvasive alternatives.

How Does Skin Tightening Work?

When you arrive at Dr. Linda Sodoma Aesthetics and Gynecology for laser skin tightening, we’ll begin by cleaning the target areas. We can provide a topical desensitizing cream to soothe the area during your treatment; however, most patients say that any minor discomfort is fleeting and bearable. After preparing your skin, we will evenly pass either the Opus, Hybrid, or Morpheus8 handpiece over your skin several times to provide the best outcomes. This system helps prompt your own innate creation of collagen and elastin, which will firm and tighten the skin as the treatment takes effect. Your session may last around 30 – 90 minutes based on the size and scope of your treatment area.

When the procedure is finished, you’ll be able to immediately get back to your routine. Your skin may look pink or irritated. However, this should diminish within several days. You likely won’t see results immediately after your session since the production of collagen and elastin is gradual; you will see your best results within the next few months. Outcomes after nonsurgical skin tightening usually continue to last for a long time.
