If you’ve been on the lookout for a younger appearance, laser skin tightening might be the perfect solution for you. By smoothing your skin’s texture, eliminating pesky wrinkles, and correcting pigmentation problems, laser skin tightening can help you find that youthful glow you’ve always known you deserve. Richmond Plastic Surgeons offers laser skin tightening for men and women in Richmond, Midlothian and surrounding areas of Virginia.

What Exactly is CO2RE Laser Skin Tightening?

As we age, the collagen in our skin tends to gradually down, which then enables the development of those unfortunate lines and wrinkles. Exposure to things like ultraviolet rays and other environmental factors will further age your skin, as well. 

Laser skin tightening is a non-surgical process that can reverse these types of unsightly skin damage, promoting the active development of collagen, and resulting in gorgeous, glowing skin that looks healthy and youthful, so you can look as confident as you feel.

Benefits of Laser Skin Tightening

Our patients absolutely love laser skin tightening as a non-surgical solution because it:

  • Doesn’t involve recovery downtime
  • Only takes about 30 minutes per treatment
  • Offers long-lasting results
  • Is adaptable to any area of the body
  • Is completely safe for most skin types

Am I the Ideal Candidate for CO2RE Laser Skin Tightening?

You’re in luck — laser skin tightening is an excellent solution for most skin types and just about any area of the body.

What Should I Do Before My Laser Skin Tightening Procedure?

We’ll set up an in-person consultation with one of our board-certified surgeons so you can understand every step of the process, and be confident that you’ll achieve the best possible results from your Richmond laser skin tightening procedure.

What Can I Expect During My Laser Skin Tightening Treatment?

During your laser skin tightening treatment, our medical esthetician will use a special instrument to deliver a “grid pattern” of light pulses to the surface of your skin. These pulses will penetrate your skin down to the dermal layer, stimulating collagen production in the process.

You might feel a slight warming sensation, combined with a tightening of the skin. We often use a topical ointment, and a cooling device to help make sure you stay comfortable during the treatment, which only takes about 30 minutes.

If the treatment area is likely to be exposed to sunlight, you’ll 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 CO2RE Laser Skin Tightening?

Thankfully, no! Laser skin tightening treatment at Richmond Plastic Surgeons is non-surgical, and doesn’t leave scars.

When Will I See My Results?

Right away! You’ll notice an immediate improvement in your skin after your treatment.

Are There Any Possible Complications with Laser Skin Tightening?

Complications related to laser skin tightening are pretty rare. If our medical esthetician feels that you might be at a higher risk for complications, we’ll recommend an alternative treatment that can help you achieve similar results.

How Long Will the Results of Laser Skin Tightening Last?

Laser skin tightening provides long-term anti-aging benefits, but note that it doesn’t stop the aging process.

How Much Does Laser Skin Tightening Cost in Richmond?

Laser skin tightening is elective and won’t be covered by your insurance. After your consultation, we’ll provide you with a detailed cost breakdown, so you can review your budget and be prepared for the procedure. We accept several payment options, and financing is available through CareCredit®.
