What’s the Right Skin Tightening Treatment for You?

Skin tightening is available through a variety of treatment options at the St. Louis Laser Liposuction Center. We understand the importance of treating loose skin and wrinkles quickly and effectively. Take a look at the available skin tightening treatment options we currently have available:

Ultrasound Skin Tightening

Loose skin and wrinkles can develop when the collagen and elastin production in our skin begins to plummet. You can fight off the signs of aging in the face with an ultrasound skin tightening procedure. This is the ideal procedure if you want to target wrinkles around your brows, nose, and chin. Ultrasound waves are safely directed towards your skin in a virtually painless procedure. Some patients may experience light discomfort in the treated area for several hours after the procedure is complete.

Radio Frequency Skin Tightening

Not only does our face develop loose skin but also our arms, legs, and abdomen. While ultrasound treatments are effective for the face, we utilize radio frequency skin tightening for everything else. This procedure uses radiofrequency waves to create contractions in your skin, causing heat. The heated contractions promote collagen production in your skin, making it softer and more elastic. Maximum results with radiofrequency skin tightening can only be achieved through multiple sessions completed several weeks apart. There is virtually no downtime needed after each treatment, so you can get right back to your daily routine.

Skin Tightening Surgery

The prior two treatment options are for light to moderate occurrences of loose skin. More significant loose skin and wrinkles require a more invasive procedure. Skin tightening surgery is available for that exact reason. This procedure uses surgical incisions to remove loose skin on the body. Popular forms of skin tightening surgery include tummy tucks and arm lifts. As with all invasive procedures, skin tightening surgery will require a lengthy recovery time. Patients may also have a risk of scarring along with the treated areas. While we always do our best to avoid invasive procedures, skin tightening surgery is the only available option for significant loose skin.
