Skin Tightening Treatments: Worth It?
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.
