Laser skin tightening services in Rockville area with GentleLase
Both men and women come to Washington Dermatology Center with concerns regarding skin laxity. Skin laxity may occur due to the natural loss of collagen during the aging process or even because of extreme weight loss. Cosmetic plastic surgery options are often considered, but avoided because they are expensive, risky, and invasive.
Thanks to continued advances in technology, patients in and around the area of Rockville and Frederick can enjoy alternative options to face lifts and tummy tucks such as laser skin tightening. This advanced treatment is a revolutionary way for patients to achieve better body contours and firm up loose skin without needles, general anesthetics, or cutting.
At the Washington Dermatology Center, our team utilizes the GentleLase laser skin tightening device. This treatment offers a non-surgical process involving radiofrequency energy that stimulates the production of collagen for a more youthful appearance – while tightening and firming areas where skin laxity is a concern.
Dr. Ron Prussick and associates explain more about the procedure. It uses a special laser tip that is applied over the treatment area after a mild sedative has been administered to the patient for optimum comfort. Depending on the size of the treatment area, treatment can take one to two hours. Following the procedure, redness and swelling is common but minor and will go away within a day or two. Patients notice the results of their treatment over the course of time as collagen begins to naturally build and the skin begins to tighten.
