Skin Tightening in Louisville, Lexington, Kentucky

MicroLaserPeel

Also used to treat Acne Scars, our MicroLaserPeel is a partial to full epidermal laser peel and is done in the spa with a topical anesthetic. It ablates the outermost layers of the skin with a depth between 10 and 50 microns based on the level of correction needed. This treatment is usually repeated two to four times, spaced six to eight weeks apart to achieve the desired result. Downtime is three to four days; patients may look sunburned immediately following the treatment, but the redness will continue to dissipate.

SkinTyte™

Our SkinTyte™ laser focuses on making firmer and more youthful looking skin for skin that is loose or sagging on the face, neck, abdomen, arms or hands. The heat from the non-ablative broadband of pulsed light jump starts the body’s own natural healing process, creating a renewed collagen foundation leading to continuing firmness even after treatments are completed. Powerful cooling is applied throughout the entire treatment; it maintains a cool and comfortable temperature for the outer skin. Patients will usually need at least three treatments spaced eight weeks apart. Mild redness might occur but should dissipate in minutes. Unlike with procedures like Botox, there is no downtime and you will be able to return to normal activities immediately.

Exilis Elite

Exilis Elite uses 90 watts of power, as opposed to 50 watts with classic Exilis, and is used mainly for skin tightening. The Exilis Elite uses a higher power than Exilis to increase skin tightening results.

ProFractional

Also used to treat Enlarged Pores, ProFractional is one of our lasers with energy that creates thousands of microscopic channels in the treated area. The zones of treated skin stimulate your own collagen production, plumping up the skin to smooth out wrinkles, lines, scars, loose/saggy skin, and other irregularities. Popular areas for treatment are the face, neck, chest, and hands. One to four treatments are needed for best results, spaced three to six weeks apart. Complete healing comes within one week depending on the depth of the treatment. Most patients return to normal activities and can apply makeup within a week. Treated skin will be more sensitive to the sun, making sun-block a necessity.

Non-Laser Options

For a non-laser approach, the Skin Spa offers Home Skin Care and Chemical Peels for Face/Neck Skin Laxity.  For more information regarding skin tightening or any other laser treatments, visit our Laser Treatments home page.
