Laser Skin Tightening
Laser skin tightening gives your skin a younger appearance by improving the texture, smoothing out wrinkles and correcting problems with pigmentation. Richmond Plastic Surgeons offers laser skin tightening for men and women in Richmond, Midlothian and surrounding areas of Virginia.
What is Laser Skin Tightening?
As we get older, the collagen in our skin breaks down, allowing lines and wrinkles to develop. The skin is further aged by exposure to ultraviolet rays and other environmental factors. Laser skin tightening reverses the damage and promotes the development of collagen to make the skin look smooth and youthful.

What Do I Need to Do Before Having Laser Skin Tightening?
Working with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons means that you will achieve the best possible results from laser skin tightening. Schedule a personal consultation to start your journey to a younger appearance without surgery.
What Should I Expect During My Laser Skin Tightening Treatment?
During the laser skin tightening treatment, our medical esthetician uses a special instrument to deliver a grid pattern of light pulses to the surface of your skin. The pulses penetrate the skin to the dermal layer and stimulate collagen production. You may feel a slight warming sensation combined with a tightening of the skin. We may use a topical ointment and cooling device to help you remain comfortable. The treatment takes only 30 minutes.
If the treatment area is likely to be exposed to sunlight, you will need to stay indoors for a few days. Aftercare also involves applying an ointment to the skin as directed.
Will I Have Scars After Getting Laser Skin Tightening?
You will not have scars as a result of your laser skin tightening treatment at Richmond Plastic Surgeons.
When Will I See the Results?
You will see an immediate improvement in your skin after the treatment.
What Are Possible Complications of Laser Skin Tightening?
Complications related to laser skin tightening are rare. If our medical esthetician determines that you are at a higher risk for complications, we may recommend an alternative treatment.
How Long Will the Results of Laser Skin Tightening Last?
Laser skin tightening provides long-term anti-aging benefits, but it will not stop the aging process.
How Much Does Laser Skin Tightening Cost in Richmond?
Laser skin tightening is elective and not covered by insurance. After your consultation, we provide a detailed cost so that you can review your budget and be prepared to pay for the procedure. We accept several payment options, and financing is available through CareCredit®.
