If you’re searching for a non-surgical way to tighten your skin, you may feel that you have no alternative other than plastic surgery. Not so! There are several non-surgical options offered in Tampa and Palm Harbor, Florida

To tighten your skin, heat is applied to the lower younger layers of skin. The heat stimulates collagen and contracts skin tissue. Common techniques are non-invasive methods using Radio Frequency, Infrared Light, and Ultra Sound technology.

Almost anyone can benefit from these techniques, though there are age-related caveats on non-surgical treatments. Heat-induced collagen stimulation is not very effective for patients age 60 and older. If you are in your 50’s or younger, and have some skin laxity, non-surgical tightening can boost your skin by thickening and tightening underlying tissue.

Non-surgical methods are great for fast recovery. However one should remember that they will never deliver the same results as a surgery. A patient vying for a facelift will not get the same results from a skin treatment.

The results of your non-surgical procedure can also vary depending on what area you address. Dr. Moraitis has achieved great results on areas like the eyelids, neck, jowls, abdomen, arms and knees. When choosing an area to address it is important to remember this rule: each area will react differently to treatment. Each patient needs to be evaluated on an individual basis.

No doubt you’ve done some research, and are confused by the myriad companies in Tampa and Palm Harbor offering skin tightening. In such case, a board-certified plastic surgeon such as Dr. Moraitis is more than qualified to help you. He can explain the entire range of treatments, their benefits, and how they may or may not fit your needs.

Dr. Moraitis can also discuss the possibility or options for procedures like facelifts (possibly in conjunction with a laser as well), eyelid surgery, brow lift, tummy tuck, liposuction, or breast lifts. You are sure to leave knowing more about the path for you.
