Laser Skin Tightening in Daytona Beach, FL

Not only can lasers “erase” imperfections, but they can also tighten the skin. Sergio M. Zamora MD, FACS performs laser skin tightening on patients in Daytona Beach, New Smyrna Beach, and the surrounding communities in Florida.

What is Laser Skin Tightening?

A laser skin tightening procedure is one in which infrared light is directed at collagen underneath the skin’s surface. This spurs new collagen to form, while at the same time causing the skin to shrink slightly and better conform to your contours. As a result, you should notice a decrease in laxity along with a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.

Ultherapy®

One of the most popular laser skin tightening treatments we offer is Ultherapy®. This procedure utilizes ultrasound waves like those used in other medical procedures, with the difference being that they target skin elasticity, lifting and firming problem areas by causing your body to produce more of its own collagen. Ultherapy® is especially popular among those who desire better definition, yet do not want to drastically alter their own natural facial contours through surgery.

Benefits of Laser Skin Tightening

Laser skin tightening offers:

  • Real results during a quick, in-office procedure
  • Minimal downtime or side effects
  • Enhanced safety, since no incisions or anesthesia are required

Who is the Ideal Candidate for Laser Skin Tightening?

If you have loose, sagging skin, particularly along the cheeks, chin, or jowls, you could be an excellent candidate for laser skin tightening.

What do I Need to do Before Laser Skin Tightening?

Aside from avoiding sun exposure, there is really nothing else that’s needed prior to laser skin tightening. However, if you desire Botox® or another dermal filler, you should schedule your injection for a different day than your laser procedure.

What Should I Expect on the Day of my Laser Skin Tightening Treatment?

After thoroughly cleansing your skin, we will provide you with a pair of protective eyewear and then allow you to get comfortable in one of our reclining chairs. Dr. Zamora will then apply a thin layer of cooling gel, which will absorb some heat and energy to reduce your discomfort. Short laser pulses will be directed at specific areas of your face over a period of around 15 to 20 minutes. This is followed by a moisturizing cream and/or sunblock to protect your skin and promote good healing.

More than one session is normally needed to provide optimum results. Before you leave, we will schedule you for your next appointment, and give you a full set of instructions to follow in between visits.

How Long Does it Take to Perform Laser Skin Tightening?

The entire procedure can often be performed in under half an hour.

What to Expect After Laser Skin Tightening

The entire procedure can often be performed in under half an hour.

What to Expect After Laser Skin Tightening

Your skin may be more sensitive than usual following each treatment, particularly your first. It may seem as though there is little improvement in the beginning, but this is because it takes several weeks for new collagen to form. As such, you will notice gradual improvement over a period of several weeks following your final session.

Will I Have Scars After Laser Skin Tightening?

One of the things our Daytona Beach patients like most about laser skin tightening is the fact that it leaves no scars whatsoever! Now it’s possible to look and feel your very best without having to worry about unsightly scars that might detract from your final results.

How Long Will the Results of Laser Skin Tightening Last?

That depends on your age and a number of other factors. If you spend a lot of time in the sun or smoke cigarettes, your body will produce less collagen than usual, meaning your results may not last quite as long as other patients.

How Much Does Laser Skin Tightening Cost in Daytona Beach?

The cost of each laser skin tightening procedure is different and based on a number of factors that are unique to you. To make laser skin tightening as affordable as possible, we accept cash, personal checks, and major credit cards, in addition to a number of affordable financing options.
