There are several treatments available for tightening of loose skin and tissue, a common result of the aging process. Depending on your particular conditions, Dermatologist Dr. Michalak may recommend a treatment such as:
- Fractional CO2
With Ulthera, Dr. Michalak can precisely deliver sound waves deep into the skin to thermally initiate the body’s own rejuvenating mechanisms. The doctor touches the smooth Ulthera ultrasound applicator to your face, which allows him to actually see beneath your skin and tissue.
Like other sonograms, an image is projected onto a screen that both you and Dr. Michalak can see. This same hand piece is then used to deliver low levels of heat energy at just the right depth below the skin to achieve a tighten and lift the tissue, while leaving the surface of your skin unharmed.
Our Fractional CO2 laser can make your skin smoother and tighter while reducing wrinkles and uneven pigmentation, age-related problems that can occur as collagen breaks down during the aging process. The fractional laser renews the outermost skin cells, revealing the underlying layers and stimulating collagen deposition. The result is tighter, younger looking skin.
