About Loose Crepey Skin Treatments
At Gateway Aesthetic Institute and Laser Center, we offer both laser and radio-frequency treatments to tighten and rejuvenate loose, crepey skin. Both offer a safe method of mild to moderate skin tightening without downtime.
Skin tightening treatment should not be confused with wrinkle treatment. Skin tightening is needed when areas of the skin sag or droop.
The best individual treatment for skin tightening will depend on several factors including your skin’s laxity, pigment, sun exposure, and tone.
Laser Skin Tightening
Laser Skin Tightening uses long pulsed laser energy to effectively tighten the skin. The laser energy penetrates into the dermis layer of the skin to provide collagen regeneration without downtime or the risk of serious side effects. Patients often prefer Laser Skin Tightening because as it tightens the skin, it decreases fine lines, provides a smoother texture, and decreases pore size.
With Laser Skin Tightening, a series of five treatments, approximately a month apart, are recommended for optimum results. Maximum results are seen about 90 days after the last treatment.
ThermiTight Skin Tightening
ThermiTight (also called ThermiRF) is the first aesthetic procedure which delivers controlled thermal energy under the skin to reverse the effects of aging. ThermiTight is ideal for patients who want more results than non-invasive procedures can deliver and DO NOT want surgery. It’s great for problem areas of the face, neck, tummy, and thighs. Clinical studies have shown ThermiTight is safe and effective. It’s a painless, micro-invasive procedure, which usually takes less than one hour, with little or no downtime. A tiny probe is inserted under the skin. Then, radiofrequency energy is applied directly to the target tissues causing immediate shrinkage. Results are immediate and improve over time.
