While many people want to fight back against the loose skin and wrinkles that come with age, they would prefer not to have to undergo painful surgical procedures to do it. Laser skin tightening is an excellent, non-invasive method of combating these signs of aging.

Why Laser Skin Tightening?
Laser skin tightening is an effective, non-invasive alternative to traditional surgical skin tightening techniques. At Coral Gable Dermatology, we use two different kinds of lasers for our skin tightening treatments: the eMatrix laser and the JOULE™ laser. Both of these machines have brought our patients significant and beautiful skin firming results. These treatments also feature a minimal amount of downtime, so patients can get back to their regular routines as soon as possible.
What Areas can it Treat?
Because we have both the eMatrix and JOULE™ lasers available to use for skin tightening procedures, we can treat nearly any area of the body. The most common areas that our patients receive treatment on include the:
In addition to tightening the skin, these laser treatments can correct the appearance of acne scars, stretch marks, and wrinkles.
What can I Expect from a Laser Skin Tightening Treatment?
Depending upon the area being treated, a skin tightening treatment can take anywhere between 10-60 minutes. A topical anesthetic is usually administered before the procedure begins to enhance patient comfort. After treatment, a short period of downtime is required before patients can go back to their normal routines. A series of 3-5 sessions is usually required in order to get sustained, dramatic results.
Am I a Candidate?
Nearly every patient that would like to tighten one or more areas of their skin is a good candidate for a laser skin-tightening treatment. The eMatrix laser can be used to treat a particularly diverse group of patients; it is safe and effective for use on all skin types.
While many patients can receive the benefits of laser skin tightening, it’s important to keep in mind that people who are pregnant or have taken Accutane within the past six months cannot undergo treatment. If you’re interested but unsure if you’re a candidate, contact us and schedule a consultation appointment.
