Skin Tightening in Charlotte, NC
Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. David F. Klein, is pleased to offer innovative skin tightening treatments for men and women in Charlotte, Salisbury, Harrisburg, Concord and surrounding areas of North Carolina. These treatments correct the most common signs of aging.
What is Skin Tightening?
One of the reasons why you develop wrinkles and lines is that the skin on your face loses laxity. This means that your skin does not “bounce back in place” as easily as it did when you were younger. The result is skin that hangs down and creates small folds of skin. Skin tightening improves skin elasticity and overall appearance.
Benefits of Skin Tightening
Before skin tightening procedures were introduced, patients had to rely on surgery to remove sagging skin. By using lasers and ultrasound technologies, we are now able to tighten the skin without surgery. Patients benefit because the results are immediate, require no downtime and leave no scars.
Who is the Ideal Candidate for Skin Tightening?
Our skin tightening procedures can be performed on the face and body. Dr. Klein may recommend this option if you have:
- Mild to moderate amounts of loose skin on the neck, arms, abdomen or face
- Loose skin due to a previous surgery
- A desire to avoid surgery to correct the problem
- Poor skin quality that can be repaired with lasers or ultrasound
Some skin tightening procedures require general or local anesthesia.
What Do I Need to Do Before Skin Tightening?
Skin tightening is not always the best option, so you should speak with a board-certified plastic surgeon. A consultation with Dr. Klein provides the information and guidance you need to make a well-informed decision.
How Long Does It Take to Perform Skin Tightening?
The procedure for skin tightening varies from 15 minutes to one hour.
What to Expect After Skin Tightening
You can resume your normal activities. No downtime or special recovery is needed after our skin tightening treatments.
Will I Have Scars After Getting Skin Tightening?
Skin tightening does not cause scars.
When Will I See the Results?
Full results can take two to six months.
How Long Will the Results of Skin Tightening Last?
The results last one to three years as the procedure does not stop the aging process.
How Much Does Skin Tightening Cost in Charlotte?
Medical insurance does not cover the cost of our skin tightening procedures, so you will need to pay out of pocket. We provide a cost after your consultation, and payment can be made by cash, check and major credit card. Financing is available through CareCredit®.
