What is Skin Tightening?
Skin tightening is a type of laser treatment that uses light energy to stimulate collagen production beneath the the skin, which the body then uses to lift, rejuvenate, and strengthen the skin. In addition to triggering natural skin-tightening effects in the body, laser skin tightening treatments cause an initial contraction of the skin for short-term cosmetic benefits. Unlike surgical procedures, laser skin tightening results in no scarring while taking advantage of the body's natural abilities. These treatments can be used on nearly any area of the body, although they are most commonly performed on the face, neck, arms, and abdomen. If you would like to reduce lines and wrinkles to achieve a firmer appearance in the skin, then skin tightening at Savannah Plastic Surgery may be right for you. We proudly use the Sciton SkinTyte laser for skin tightening treatments.
How Much Does Skin Tightening Cost?
The cost of skin tightening treatments at Savannah Plastic Surgery can vary. The exact cost of your treatment will depend on variables that include your treatment goals and the number of treatment sessions necessary to achieve those goals. During your consultation, we will discuss these factors in order to develop a personalized treatment plan and provide you with the exact cost of treatment. We can also determine your eligibility for health insurance coverage at this time.

What is the Skin Tightening Treatment Like?
The skin tightening treatment is performed in-office and requires no anesthetic. However, if you are receiving treatment on a particularly sensitive area, we can provide a topical numbing solution to be safe. As treatment begins, the SkinTyte laser system will be applied to the skin. This system features surface-cooling technology, ensuring that your skin remains safe and comfortable throughout the procedure. Laser energy is carefully delivered deep within the skin, triggering skin tightening and the production of collagen. Most treatments will be completed in about 30 minutes, but the treatment of larger or multiple areas may take up to an hour.
What is the Skin Tightening Recovery Like?
After the skin tightening treatment, you may experience some minor redness or skin sensitivity. However, these side effects are mild, and typically fade within a few hours. Despite these brief side effects, you'll be able to return to your usual activities immediately after your treatment. You can even apply makeup and use other cosmetic products on the same day.
What Skin Tightening Results Can I Expect?
The results form skin tightening develop gradually as collagen is produced and implemented into the skin. Some patients may begin to notice results within a month or two of treatment, but it can take as long as four months for the full results to become visible. In many cases, we will recommend a series of skin tightening treatments for optimal results. The results from skin tightening with the SkinTyte system can last for years. However, receiving regular skin tightening treatments can help maintain these results as long as possible.
