What is Skin Tightening?
Skin tightening typically means using some procedure or treatment specifically designed to return a certain tautness to the skin. There was a time in the past where the only way to accomplish that was with surgery. Thankfully, today you have many other options that don’t require the use of a scalpel.
One popular method is laser skin tightening. This method utilizes infrared laser light to direct heat to the collagen infrastructure located beneath the skin’s surface. The heat serves to strengthen the structure, by causing the fibers to tighten up.
The fibers then remodel themselves into a tighter, more densely packed configuration. As the remodeling is finished, the new configuration causes the skin to also contract and grow tighter.
What Does Skin Tightening Cost in Santa Ana, CA?
Skin tightening treatment cost is rarely the same from one person to the next. There are a number of factors to be considered that affect the final cost, such as the complexity and number of treatments required to achieve the desired results.
During your initial consultation, a treatment plan will be developed for your specific case and a more accurate total cost can be giving to you then.
Most insurance companies do not offer coverage for cosmetic procedures. We strive to keep our treatments accessible and affordable for all our clients by offering complimentary consultations as well as financing options with CareCredit®.
How Does Skin Tightening Work?
Skin tightening treatments in the past often required surgery, especially if the sagging of the skin was severe. Today, thanks to laser skin tightening, you can stop the sagging at a much earlier stage.
Laser skin tightening actually works with the body’s own natural processes, triggering responses within the body tissue that actually cause the skin to tighten up on its own.
The heat from the laser beam causes the existing collagen molecules you have to move closer together. When the collagen between skin cells moves closer together, the skin cells also move closer, and this gives a tighter look to the surface of the skin.
The laser skin tightening treatment also stimulates the body to produce additional collagen, which helps make the skin stronger and slows down any new development of lines and wrinkles that lead to sagging skin. Our practice uses the Cutero xeo® laser system, a cutting-edge laser that can be used for skin resurfacing and skin tightening.
What Are the Benefits of Skin Tightening?
There are a number of outstanding benefits associated with skin tightening, and most clients are delighted with the end result of their procedure. Perhaps one of the biggest benefits of skin tightening is the dramatic increase in self-confidence most people report feeling after seeing their results. Other common benefits include:
- Little to no downtime needed for recovery
- Immediate, long-lasting results
- Increased production of the body’s natural collagen production
- Significantly reduced appearance of lines and wrinkles
- Skin appears firmer, more toned and younger looking
Am I a Good Candidate for Skin Tightening?
Healthy adults who are beginning to see the signs of mild to moderate skin sagging are likely the best candidates for skin tightening. It may not be recommended if you’re pregnant, taking certain medications or have particular medical conditions, so it’s best to discuss your situation with the doctor during the initial consultation.
