No one wants saggy skin, whether it’s on your face, tummy or neck. But not everyone can afford to take time off work for cosmetic surgery to take care of the problem.

Good news! Loose skin can be treated non-surgically with skin-tightening treatments that offer real, natural-looking results—in record time. Better still, it doesn’t take too long—30-90 minutes at most—and the procedure is safe for all skin types and colors.

Skin-tightening treatments, such as Cutera’s Titan infrared light-based platform, provide a uniform distribution of energy for heating deep within the dermis. The ideal patient is one with early age-related changes, with mild to moderate skin laxity.  These treatments are commonly recommended in a series of 2-4 treatments with maximum results 3-6 months post treatment.

The upside:Laser and/or Light-based skin tightening treatments are virtually pain- and downtime-free, making them a great option for someone who isn’t ready for surgery or the investment in a surgical procedure, but wants to address the skin laxity. And, unlike a facelift, which can run from $7,000 to $15,000, skin tighteners don’t put nearly as big of a dent in your bank account.

If you’re looking for a cost-effective, subtle change, you can’t beat skin-tightening treatments.
