Skin Tightening in Evansville and Jasper, IN
Collagen loss due to aging and damage can make the skin sag and stretch over time. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ryan Flannagan now offers skin tightening treatments at Flannagan Plastic Surgery. Evansville, Jasper, Southern Indiana, Northern Indiana and Illinois residents should consider skin tightening treatments to restore a firmer, more youthful appearance.
What is Skin Tightening?
The skin loses elasticity over time, causing it to sag and stretch. Dr. Flannagan uses SkinTyte™, a treatment system which delivers pulsed infrared light to activate collagen production in the skin. This gentle treatment heats the deep layers of the skin to initiate the body’s natural healing process. Energy is delivered to the skin to heat the dermal collagen while sapphire contact cooling is utilized to protect the skin.
Benefits of Skin Tightening
Skin tightening treatments are fast and easy. Appropriate for all areas of the body, and all skin types, SkinTyte™ laser treatments boost collagen production, helping the skin to naturally rejuvenate itself. With immediate results, patients feel more confident and enjoy tighter skin within a few hours of their first treatment.
Is Skin Tightening Right for Me?
Men and women are appropriate candidates for skin tightening treatments. It is appropriate for patients with all skin types. If you are unhappy with sagging skin, SkinTyte™ treatments may be right for you. Patients with active skin infections may not be good candidates for this treatment. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Flannagan to discuss the best treatments for your desired results.
What Is a Skin Tightening Procedure?
During your treatment, a cooling gel is applied to the skin. There is no need for a topical anesthetic. This also allows for the heat to transfer from the wand into the skin. The laser wand is passed over the target area several times until the skin is heated to the appropriate temperature. The entire treatment process takes about one hour.
How Long Is the Recovery After a Skin Tightening Procedure?
There is virtually no recovery time after a SkinTyte™ treatment. Patients are able to resume regular activities the same day. You may notice some immediate improvement the same day, with continued improvement over the following two to three weeks. Patients often schedule several appointments about 4 weeks apart to achieve optimal results.
How Much Does a Skin Tightening Procedure Cost?
The cost for a skin tightening procedure will vary depending on the extent of treatment required. Some patients may need follow-up treatments more frequently than others. This will also impact the cost of your treatment. In most cases, plastic surgery treatments are not covered by insurance.
