Skin Tightening Treatment in Macon, GA
Many people notice loose, sagging skin as they grow older, and they rely on Georgia Center for Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery for skin tightening treatments. Led by plastic surgeon, Dr. Joshua R. Groves, board-certified by the American Board of Surgery, our clinic has helped men and women in Macon, Warner Robins, Houston County, Bibb County and the surrounding area look younger with skin tightening treatments.
What is Skin Tightening Treatment?
As you age, your skin naturally begins to droop and sag. Many treatments that are designed to smooth wrinkles do little to address this problem, which is why one or more skin tightening treatments may be needed, such as:
- Non-invasive, such as laser treatments
- Dermal fillers, which are minimally-invasive procedures
- Minimally invasive contouring solutions
Many times, more than one procedure may be used to achieve optimum results. Different procedures are normally used for the face than those for the body.
What Skin Tightening Treatments are Offered?
At Georgia Center for Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, we offer BodyFX, Forma Plus, and Mini FX. These skin tightening treatments are aimed at contouring and reducing cellulite. The technologies that are used are clinically proven methods of addressing concerns in the neck, arms, legs, and other areas of the body. Additionally, these systems are designed to permanently kill adipose tissue. These are minimally invasive procedures.
- BodyFX – BodyFX is the first and only proven, non-invasive body contouring procedure that permanently eliminates adipose tissue from the body. This skin tightening treatment contracts the skin and tightens the appearance of loose and sagging tissue. This treatment is intended for larger areas of the body such as the abdomen, thigh, back, and legs.
- Forma Plus – Forma Plus is a revolutionary technique that uses radio frequency energy to heat and contact the skin. This treatment helps to achieve tighter, smoother skin. Forma Plus can be used to lift and tone the face and neck. It can also be applied to other areas such as the arms, knees, inner thighs and abdomen.
- Mini FX – MiniFX is a non-invasive technique that provides body contouring in fatty areas of the body including the neck, arms, and knees. This technology uses gentle heat to reduce the amount of fat cells in treated areas.
Benefits of Skin Tightening Treatment
A skin tightening treatment can help erase years off of your appearance and leave you feeling younger and more confident. Skin tightening treatments can effectively firm skin that is sagging and resistant to being toned through exercise. To determine which skin tightening treatment is ideal for you, schedule a consultation to review your options.
Requirements for Skin Tightening Treatment
In order to be considered for a skin tightening treatment, you should be in generally good health and not be pregnant or breastfeeding. When choosing surgery, Dr. Groves will want to know if you are taking certain medications that may react negatively with anesthesia.
Is Skin Tightening Treatment Right for Me?
If you are bothered by loose skin anywhere on your face or body, a skin tightening treatment performed by Dr. Groves can help you eliminate it so you will feel younger and more confident. Even if you do not wish to undergo surgery, there is likely a procedure that will help you achieve your goals.
How Involved is a Skin Tightening Treatment Procedure?
Dermal fillers are very simple procedures that require only an injection into one or more areas of your face. Laser treatments like FaceTite and truSculpt™ are slightly more involved, and may result in the need for a topical anesthetic. Some treatments also require more than one procedure to obtain optimum results. Surgery is the most involved of the options, and will require either local or general anesthesia. Depending upon the procedure you choose, an overnight stay in the hospital may or may not be necessary.
How Long is the Recovery After a Skin Tightening Treatment?
After a dermal filler, you are free to leave our office and resume your normal activities. You may also do so after having a laser treatment; however, you will need to forego wearing makeup and avoid sun exposure for a few days. A surgical procedure could require you to take several days off from work, and your activities during the recovery period could be limited as well. The downtime for laser skin tightening options varies.
How Much Does a Skin Tightening Treatment Cost?
The cost of skin tightening treatments depends on the exact procedure you choose. During your consultation, we will discuss the cost, and go over our payment options to find one that best suits your needs.
Some procedures may be covered by medical insurance. Our staff is experienced in matters pertaining to insurance, and will work with your carrier to get you maximum coverage.
