About Skin Tightening

When you're born, your body has a full supply of collagen and elastin that make your skin smooth, soft, healthy, and resilient. Eventually, this natural supply of nutrients runs low and the skin of the face and body decreases in elasticity, leading to lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. If you want to improve the tightness and overall appearance of your skin without surgery, consider nonsurgical laser skin tightening at Advanced Plastic Surgery Center in Arlington, VA. Using advanced technology, Venus Freeze nonsurgical skin tightening stimulates the natural production of collagen and elastin in the treated areas so you can have firmer, healthier skin. During the initial consultation, plastic surgeon Dr. Talal Munasifi and Dr. James Economides will be pleased to offer laser skin tightening to their Arlington, VA patients wishing to tone the skin on their face or body without the time and expense of a surgical lift. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Munasifi or Dr. Economides in Arlington, VA to learn more about laser skin tightening.

Procedure Technique

To begin the procedure, the areas being treated will be thoroughly cleansed to remove any makeup, dirt, or oil. Anesthesia options can be provided upon your request, but most patients find that any mild discomfort during the treatment is brief and easily tolerated. Once you are ready, the Venus Freeze laser handpiece will be passed evenly over the selected areas multiple times for the most effective treatment. The energy emitted by the laser handpiece causes the body’s natural healing properties to ignite to produce collagen and elastin, which will tighten and firm the skin. The procedure can take about 30 – 90 minutes depending on the size and number of areas being treated. After the treatment is complete, you will be able to leave and resume your normal activities.

What to Expect

After your laser skin tightening procedure, the treated areas may be slightly red, swollen, or numb. This is normal and you should resolve on its own within a few days. During your consultation, Dr. Munasifi will discuss the best ways to care for your skin after your treatment, including keeping the skin moisturized and protected from the sun. Most patients will not be able to see visible results immediately after the procedure. Since the collagen and elastin stimulation and growth is a gradual process, you can expect to see the full results of your treatment within 2 – 6 months after the procedure. However, these results should be long-lasting and improve the overall health and appearance of your skin. You may need multiple treatments to get the ideal outcome. During your consultation, Dr. Munasifi will help you develop your custom treatment plan based on your needs and cosmetic goals.
