Laser Skin Tightening
Dr. Cyrus Chess provides laser skin tightening, as well as other noninvasive skin tightening treatments using radiofrequency energy. He focuses on administering several small, individualized treatments that result in fewer side effects and better results. Using the state-of-the-art technology at our Norwalk, CT, laser center, Dr. Chess can tighten and smooth the skin along the jaw, around the eyes, along the neckline, and in other areas of the body. He makes every effort to provide patients with conservative treatments that require the fewest sessions and minimal downtime.
Skin Tightening Technology
Thermage CPT uses radiofrequency energy to heat the underlying layers of skin where collagen and elastin fibers have stretched out from age and sun damaage. This treatment results in immediate tightening, but also stimulates collagen production. This means the skin will continue to tighten and become smoother for up to six months following treatment. Unlike many other skin tightening treatments, one treatment session with Thermage can usually provide the desired results.
Similar to Thermage, Pelleve uses radiofrequency energy to penetrate the skin, heating the dermal layers beneath the surface. This tightens the skin and initiates new collagen growth to maintain improved skin elasticity. Pelleve is best used for tightening the skin of the upper and lower eyelids and the overall area around the eyes. Some patients need only one treatment while others may want more for maximum benefit.
The GentleYAG uses infrared laser energy to heat the deeper layers of the skin. The GentleYAG works by tightening these deep layers while also stimulating new collagen production. This laser was originally invented for hair and spider vein destruction. More recent research revealed its skin tightening and rejuvenative capacity.
Most patients will notice an immediate improvement in their skin, which will continue to improve for several months after treatment. Depending on your needs, you may need as many as three to six treatments.
Skin laxity is an inevitable part of aging, but with the help of an experienced doctor, you can achieve rejuvenation without undergoing an invasive surgical procedure.
Finding the Right Skin Tightening Option for You
Regardless of which skin tightening option you choose, there is no downtime following your treatment session. You can immediately return to work or your normal daily activities as soon as we complete your treatment. You may experience some redness in the treatment area, but this will subside within a few hours.
These treatments are customizable for patients with varying skin types and concerns. Dr. Chess can address wrinkles and loose skin in the face, neck, abdomen, and other areas of the body with this technology. All treatments are personalized to meet your individual goals and needs.
