Treatments for Skin Tightening
Mission Viejo and Orange County patients may benefit from one of the several cosmetic solutions we offer. Each is FDA-approved and represents the most advanced options for tightening, toning and improving skin quality.
Ultherapy encourages the production of collagen for firmer, younger-looking skin. The technology uses ultrasound energy that reaches the foundational layer of your tissues without affecting the surface. As a result, Ultherapy is both a non-invasive and effective approach to skin tightening. Dr. Sikorski frequently recommends Ultherapy for the neck and décolletage, the brow, and certain areas of the face.
Similar to Ultherapy, Thermage is a non-invasive treatment that helps reduce sagging skin by promoting collagen development. Instead of ultrasound energy, however, the device uses radiofrequency technology that treats the underlying tissue without impacting the visible layers. It’s well suited to facial features that require a targeted and gentle approach.
MiXto is a leading-edge CO2 surgical laser that can be used on nearly all types of skin. The device has multiple uses and operating modes. Natural Image OC employs the MiXto laser to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles and to provide skin tightening around features such as the upper eyelids.
RF microneedling promotes skin tightening in two ways. First, radiofrequency energy reaches the lower levels of tissue to promote collagen development. Second, the microneedling device creates tiny channels in the skin to encourage the creation of new tissue. It’s a precise tool that offers improvement with minimal downtime.
Deep FX, Active FX, and Scar FX
These all use a powerful and fractionated CO2 laser that works quickly and effectively for a variety of aesthetic needs. It encourages collagen production at the deepest tissue levels, and its advanced CoolScan® technology makes energy delivery more precise and even. This reduces the number of passes required and improves your comfort.
The Benefits of Skin Tightening
In your consultations with Dr. Sikorski and our staff, you will have the chance to ask questions about treatment and learn about the advantages of each approach. We dedicate significant time to helping patients in Mission Viejo and Orange County select the right option for their needs.
Our Mission Viejo and Orange County patients frequently choose skin tightening because it is a non-surgical and effective option for addressing sagging skin. Non-surgical skin tightening will not offer the same level of improvement as surgery, but it also does not have the same downtime.
The skin tightening services we offer provide ongoing benefits. You can expect to see improvement shortly after your treatment, but the biggest changes come months later as new collagen creates firmer and smoother skin. Collagen production can take six months, after which time Mission Viejo and Orange County patients may benefit from a follow-up treatment.
Dr. Sikorski may also recommend skin tightening in combination with a surgical procedure. Integrating both approaches can reduce the scope of surgery as well as your overall recovery time. It can also give you more natural-looking results in targeted areas.
Whether you know the specific procedure you want to explore, or you simply want to learn about the different treatment options available, contact our practice for an initial consultation.
