What is Minimally Invasive Skin Tightening?
Minimally invasive skin tightening is a cosmetic treatment that delivers laser technology in a new, advanced approach to maximize the cosmetic benefits. This treatment, called NOLOOSESKIN™, incorporates a range of features to provide a safer and more effective treatment that traditional skin tightening techniques. NOLOOSESKIN™ device has several features that help us achieve this:
- The small size and blunt tip of any invasive probe to minimize trauma
- Controlled, tight confinement of delivered energy
- Automatic internal tissue temperature sensing with computer-controlled, automatic shut-off to ensure the maximum delivery of energy at safe levels
- Adequate external skin temperature monitoring, which allows users to visualize energy delivery and temperature elevation.
How Much Does Minimally Invasive Skin Tightening Cost?
The cost of minimally invasive skin tightening will vary by patient. The cost of this treatment depends on the area being treated and the number of treatments necessary to produce your desired results. During your consultation, Dr. Mardirossian will take these factors into consideration in order to provide you with the exact cost of treatment. We also offer financing services like CareCredit® to help make your treatment more affordable.
What is the Minimally Invasive Skin Tightening Treatment Like?
The minimally invasive skin tightening treatment involves the use of a local anesthetic to minimize any discomfort that may occur during treatment. Then, a needle-like device will be inserted just under the surface of the skin, where it will emit precise, controlled laser energy. You may feel a warm or heating sensation during this process. The full treatment usually takes about 30 minutes to an hour, but can vary depending on the size of the area being treated.
What is Recovery Like After Minimally Invasive Skin Tightening?
After minimally invasive skin tightening, there is no recovery period necessary. You may experience minor side effects such as redness, soreness or sensitivity, but these often fade within a day or two. You’ll be able to resume most normal activities immediately after your treatment.
What Results Can I Expect from Minimally Invasive Skin Tightening?
The minimally invasive skin tightening treatment produces both immediate and long-lasting results. The initial treatment causes skin tissue to contract, producing results that you will notice right after your treatment. Minimally invasive skin tightening also greatly increases collagen production, allowing you to enjoy further improvements over the months following treatment. Most patients notice optimal results about two to three months after their treatment, although some patients may require multiple treatment sessions to achieve their desired results.
