WHAT IS NONSURGICAL SKIN TIGHTENING?
Throughout our younger years, we have a generous supply of collagen and elastin that helps to make our skin smooth and youthful. But as we age, these building blocks of the skin deplete, leading to lines, wrinkles, and a sagging appearance on the face, neck, or body. The med spa team at Horizon Medical Center is thrilled to offer laser skin tightening with ClearTite from Alma lasers. Noninvasive skin tightening increases the production of collagen and elastin in the skin, resulting in smoother, healthier-looking results. It can offer an effective way to tighten loose skin, reduce cellulite, and enhance the firmness of your complexion without surgery. If you would like to renew and tone your skin with a noninvasive alternative, we would love to help you explore the benefits of nonsurgical skin tightening!
HOW DOES LASER SKIN TIGHTENING WORK?
To perform laser skin tightening at our Schaumburg, IL med spa, we will have you relax in one of our private treatment rooms and prepare your skin. Our certified laser technician will then guide the ClearTite laser handpiece over the treatment areas, which uses light energy to stimulate collagen and elastin production, making your skin tighter and firmer as the treatment takes effect. Laser skin tightening treatments take about 30 minutes to complete. Since elastin and collagen production is gradual, you can expect to see your optimal outcomes over the course of 4 – 6 treatments. We can help you determine when to schedule any follow-up sessions to maintain your firmer, younger-looking skin.
LASER SKIN TIGHTENING FAQS
What about surgical skin tightening?
Surgical skin tightening procedures are invasive and thus carry a greater risk of side effects and complications. They also require a longer recovery period. This is why many of our patients in Schaumburg are excited to have a nonsurgical solution. Our experienced team can help you decide if nonsurgical treatment is right for your needs.
Does nonsurgical skin tightening hurt?
Laser skin tightening procedures are generally considered to be safe and effective, with minimal risk of side effects or complications. However, as with any cosmetic procedure, there is always a possibility of discomfort or pain. Be sure to discuss your concerns with Horizon Medical Center prior to undergoing any treatment.
Why is collagen and elastin production so important?
Collagen and elastin are two important proteins produced by our bodies. They play a vital role in maintaining the youthful appearance and elasticity of our skin. As we age, the production of these proteins slows down, resulting in wrinkles, lines, and other signs of aging. Laser skin tightening can restore the lost collagen and elastin, resulting in a more youthful look.
