About Skin Tightening
In your youth, your body has a full supply of collagen and elastin that keeps your skin smooth, soft, healthy, and resilient. However, over time, the skin of the face and body loses elasticity, leading to lines, wrinkles, and sagging features.

Nonsurgical skin tightening can help if you do not wish to undergo cosmetic surgery. Nonsurgical skin tightening procedures can be done on most areas of the face and body, including the neck, stomach, arms, and thighs. The best patients for this procedure:
- Have mild to moderate skin looseness on the face or body
- Have lines or wrinkles on the face or body
- Want to enhance the health and appearance of their skin
To start the session, the skin being treated will be sanitized to remove any makeup, dirt, or oil. As soon as you are ready, the laser handpiece will be passed evenly over the skin multiple times for the most effective treatment. The energy prompts the body’s natural healing properties to produce collagen and elastin, which tightens and firms the skin. The procedure can take about 20 – 30 minutes, depending on the size and number of areas being treated. The procedure resembles a hot stone massage and most patients find it very relaxing. After the session is complete, you will be able to leave and resume your daily activities. Robin Brock recommends 6 – 8 treatments spaced one week apart.
What to Expect
After your nonsurgical skin tightening appointment, the treated areas may be mildly inflamed or red. This is expected and should clear up on its own within several hours. During your consult, Robin Brock will talk about the best ways to care for your skin after your session, like keeping the skin moisturized and protected from sun and environmental damage. Most patients will not have visible results immediately after the session. Since the collagen and elastin stimulation and production is a gradual process, you can have the best results of your treatment around 2 – 6 months after the series of recommended treatments are complete. However, these results should be long-lasting and improve the overall health and appearance of your skin. You may require multiple treatments to get the ideal outcome. During your consultation, Robin Brock will help you design your personalized treatment plan based on your concerns and goals.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does nonsurgical skin tightening cost?
The cost of a nonsurgical skin tightening treatment will vary, depending on the size and amount of areas being treated. Prior to planning your treatment, we will discuss all costs and customize a specific treatment plan for your needs. We can also discuss payment options and where to find low-interest medical financing.
What is collagen?
Collagen is a protein-based tissue naturally produced by the body. Along with other functions, it works to help keep skin hydrated, elastic, and firm. However, through the natural aging process, the natural supply and production of collagen tend to slow down. This then leads to looser, thinner, and less elastic skin. With nonsurgical skin tightening, the production of collagen is stimulated to allow the skin to be healthier and firmer over time.
Is the procedure painful?
During a nonsurgical skin tightening treatment, you may experience a slight heating sensation, but no major discomfort. If you are nervous about your treatment, talk to Robin Brock, our licensed aesthetician, about what to expect.
What can I expect after my treatment?
After a nonsurgical skin tightening treatment, you may experience some redness in the treated area. This will usually subside within a few hours. The results of your treatment will continue to develop in the months following completion of your treatment series as collagen continues to be produced.
