Laser Skin Tightening in Houston, TX
Loose skin that sags on your face forms wrinkles and deep creases. Laser skin tightening alleviates the problem by stimulating natural collagen production. Board-certified plastic surgeon and founding member of The Aesthetic Center for Plastic Surgery, Dr. German Newall, leads a team of nurse injectors and aestheticians who offer laser skin tightening for men and women in Houston, Post Oak, Sugar Land, Katy, and the surrounding areas of Texas.
What is Laser Skin Tightening?
Heating dermal tissues with laser energy is proven to stimulate collagen production. As the collagen develops, it adds volume to the skin that lifts it to help with wrinkles and creases. The procedure also helps the skin to contract. The combination of these two effects gives the skin a smoother, younger appearance.
Benefits of Laser Skin Tightening
- May alleviate or delay the need for a facelift
- Helps with moderate wrinkles and lines
- No downtime
- Some immediate improvement followed by a gradual tightening of the skin
What Can I Expect from Laser Skin Tightening?
Laser skin tightening is performed with a special device that delivers a specific wavelength of laser energy into the dermal tissue. The wavelength is important because it will only affect the dermal tissue and no other tissues, such as nerves, blood vessels, and muscles. This works because the wavelength is such that it is only absorbed by your skin. The laser energy is administered in short bursts across the treatment area. You may feel a slight sensation that is similar to a small pinch with each application of the laser.
After the procedure, your skin may look slightly pink and you may experience some minor swelling. These symptoms typically last just a few days.
Am I a Good Candidate for Laser Skin Tightening?
Skin laxity is a common reason that men and women develop wrinkles on their faces, yet some wrinkles and folds are too severe for laser skin tightening and may require a facelift. The best way to find out if laser skin tightening is your best option is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Newall.
How Much Does Laser Skin Tightening Cost?
The cost of laser skin tightening is less than a facelift and more effective than use anti-aging products that you are able to buy at department stores. The procedure may even allow you to delay a facelift for several years, but this varies by patient. To help you better afford the cost of laser skin tightening, German Newall MD offers financing options for qualified patients.
