Skin Tightening and
Firming Treatments for Skin
Mercer Island - Seattle - Bellevue
The aging process, combined with the cumulative effects of the sun, gravity and genetics, cause a gradual decrease in the skin's elasticity, which can cause it to sag. Sagging skin on the face and arms (and other areas of the body) can make a person appear old and out of shape, severely impacting their self-confidence and wellbeing. Island Dermatology offers non-invasive skin firming services that will leave you with a more youthful, radiant appearance!
We use cutting edge laser technology to quickly and effectively reduce the appearance of wrinkles and loose skin, providing a smoother and more youthful appearance. This non-surgical process relies on the infrared light source of the laser to heat the collagen under the surface of the skin, causing it to tighten. Laser skin tightening procedures require no downtime and have virtually no side effects. Some patients may experience temporary redness or soreness immediately after the treatment; symptoms generally dissipate within a few hours.
Results from laser skin firming procedures can be seen immediately after the treatment, with additional tightening occurring after a few months. To achieve optimal results, a few follow up sessions spaced in four week increments is recommended.
Skin Tightening After Weight Loss
It is common for people that have achieved weight loss to have excess skin that sags on the face, arms, stomach or other areas of the body. Before putting yourself through the pain that comes with plastic surgery, it is useful to investigate whether the excess skin may be able to be tightened with a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure.
The dermatology providers at Island Dermatology will work with you to determine if a non-invasive skin tightening treatment is a suitable option for you. Call us today for a consultation!
