Skin Tightening

MedSpa & Wellness Clinic located in Brighton Beach, Brooklyn, NY

Skin Tightening

As we get older, collagen and elastin production slows down — two proteins that help our skin stay plump and tight. If you have sagging skin on your face, neck, or body, you may benefit from innovative skin tightening procedures. Gina Molinari and the team at New York Laser and Skin Clinic offer several treatments at their location in Brighton Beach, Brooklyn, in New York. To learn more about laser,  radiofrequency (RF), and fractional RF therapy, call the clinic today or use the convenient online scheduling tool.

Skin Tightening Q & A

What can a skin tightening procedure treat? 

New York Laser and Skin Clinic uses nonsurgical skin tightening treatments that help improve drooping skin on the face, neck, and body, with little to no downtime. 

Aging can cause our bodies to stop producing collagen and elastin, but so can prolonged sun exposure, poor diet, smoking, and pollution. Various procedures like laser rejuvenation, radiofrequency therapy, and intense pulsed light use targeted heat or light to stimulate collagen and elastin production. 

What are the benefits of noninvasive skin tightening treatments? 

Benefits for mild to moderate skin sagging include:

  • Gradual, natural results 
  • Results lasting up to one year 
  • Painless procedures 
  • Little to no downtime 
  • Safety for all skin types 
  • Tightening of skin almost anywhere on your body
  • Minimal side effects like redness and swelling
  • Procedures take less than an hour 
  • Procedures performed in the New York Laser and Skin Clinic office 
  • Can wear makeup almost immediately after a procedure 

Be sure to communicate with your provider if you have any skin disorders, cancer, inflammation, or irritation, or have undergone previous skin tightening procedures. 

What are my skin tightening treatment options? 

Your provider works with you to understand your cosmetic goals and then determines how many sessions of a specific treatment you’ll need.

Radiofrequency (RF) therapy

The practice offers the cutting-edge Pollogen Legend™, TriPollar®, and VoluDerm™devices that use radiofrequency to target the outer layer of your skin on your face, neck, body, or hands. Your provider may combine RF treatments with microneedling to treat deeper layers of skin. 

While many people see skin tightening results from only one RF treatment, it may take 2-8 treatments to achieve optimal results months before you need maintenance follow-ups. 

Laser skin rejuvenation 

Handheld lasers, like the WhisperNG™ Erbium YAG Extended Ablation laser 2940 nm, CoolTouch VariaBreeze™(1064), and CoolTouch CoolBreeze® (1320), send heat deep into your skin, tightening, refining, and smoothing dermal and epidermal tissue. 

Laser treatments are particularly effective on the belly and upper arm sagging skin. Most people receive 3-5 treatments.

Intense pulsed light (IPL)

IPL allows your provider to treat a larger amount of skin, using the Energist UltraPlus VPLdevice to stimulate collagen and elastin production deep within the dermis. This procedure is safe and simple for almost all skin types.
