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.
truSculpt™ is a procedure that uses radiofrequency waves to tighten skin while simultaneously reducing fat. It requires the use of a special handpiece to deliver radio waves into the deepest layers of your skin. truSculpt™ can be used to tighten skin on a number of areas, including:
A single procedure takes between 20 minutes and two hours, depending on the size of the area being treated. All procedures are performed on an outpatient basis.
FaceTite is a minimally-invasive procedure that is typically used on the face but can also be used on other small areas of the body. FaceTite uses radiofrequency to gently heat fat in the target area of the face. The results of a FaceTitle procedure are similiar to the results you’d see with a facelift or necklift expect there is no surgery required. Benefits include:
- Uniform distribution of heat (providing even results)
- Physician enabled temperatures (giving the doctor more control)
- Fast procedure
- No surgery
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.
