Skin Tightnening

Skin tightening has become a popular cousin of the facelift, as it does not involve surgery. Skin tightening is non-invasive, and usually conducted with a laser or other sort of light beam. The aesthetic results are more modest than with a facelift, but are still noticeable. The lasers send heat deep into the skin, causing the tissue to tighten and to produce collagen, which makes the skin appear firmer and tighter. Since the procedure in non-surgical, there is less recovery time than with a facelift.

Skin tightening can help with the following aesthetic complaints:

  • Sagging forehead, cheeks, or eyebrows
  • Drooping jowls or neck
  • Wrinkles around the eyes
  • Cellulite
  • Loose skin on the abdomen, buttocks, arms, or thighs.

At Urgent Care LA, our doctors can assess whether or not skin tightening is right for you. They will ask you about your current complaints, medical history, and expected aesthetic results, and they will discuss the procedure and the risks with you as well.
