Skin Tightening in Worcester, MA

As we age, our skin begins to sag and lose fullness, luminosity, and volume.  Skin tightening treatments can rejuvenate your appearance by imparting a more contoured and defined look to the face and throat region. This treatment is available at Salisbury Plastic Surgery, where Dr. Deborah K. Ekstrom, a board-certified plastic surgeon, provides skin tightening treatments for residents of Massachusetts in Worcester, Salisbury, and nearby areas.

What is Skin Tightening?

Skin tightening treatments are non-invasive and recommended for those who are beginning to notice laxity in the skin around the areas of the cheeks, jaw line and throat area.  Laser skin tightening treatments not only tighten the skin but also trigger increased collagen production, yielding dramatic results that continue to improve over time.

How Does Skin Tightening Work?

Skin tightening is done using advanced radiofrequency (RF) technology to deliver heat to areas deep beneath the skin’s surface to stimulate collagen production and break down fat.  Fat cells shrink, and the body increases collagen production to boost the production of new, healthy skin cells.  The resuslts are tighter, renewed skin with increased luminosity and radiance.

What Can Skin Tightening Do for Me?

Skin tightening treatments can enhance the appearance of your face, neck and décolleté region by firming and tightening the skin. Skin tightening is a safe and effective treatment for healthy adults who have sagging skin in the area of the face and throat and want to achieve a younger looking appearance without surgery. It cannot be expected to produce the same results as liposuction or surgery.

Who Can Benefit from Skin Tightening Treatments?

Although skin tightening is safe for most adults who are in good general health, schedule an appointment with Salisbury Plastic Surgery to be evaluated by Dr. Ekstrom to determine if your skin can benefit from skin tightening treatments.

Is Skin Tightening Painful?

Skin tightening treatments are not painful, however, some patients experience minor redness and skin sensitivity after the procedure, which typically resolves itself within a day.

How Many Skin Tightening Treatments Will I Need?

Most patients achieve optimal results after two skin tightening treatments scheduled two weeks apart.  Results may be immediately noticeable in some individuals, while others will see a dramatic improvement in six to eight weeks.

Can Skin Tightening Be Combined with Other Procedures?

Yes. Skin tightening can be combined with other procedures such as cosmetic surgery and liposuction to achieve the most flattering results. Some patients elect to use dermal fillers, such as Juvederm® or Restylane®, after skin tightening treatments to minimize wrinkles and lines in the lower face.

How Much Does Skin Tightening Cost in Worcester?

Costs for skin tightening treatment will vary based upon your unique condition and the total extent of your treatment or combined treatments. Salisbury Plastic Surgery accepts a variety of payment methods and offers easy financing options to cover the cost of your treatment.
