Nearly everyone has a few areas of loose skin on their bodies that they would like to tighten and tone. Because this can be difficult to do through regular methods of diet and exercise alone, River Region Dermatology & Laser is proud to offer our patients non-invasive skin tightening treatments that can address these problem areas without surgery or extensive downtime.

Our practice is proud to provide patients in the Montgomery area of Alabama with an extensive range of state-of-the-art treatment options. If you’d like more information about our skin tightening options or are interested in scheduling a consultation appointment, contact us today!

What is Skin Tightening?

At River Region Dermatology & Laser, we use non-invasive radiofrequency and ultrasound energy delivered through the Exilis Ultra™ system during all of our skin tightening procedures. This technology can be used to tighten skin on the face and neck in a way that is both long-lasting and natural-looking.

How Does it Work

During an Exilis Ultra™ treatment, both radiofrequency and ultrasound energy is directed at the skin. Both of these sources of energy pass easily through the uppermost layer of the skin and are absorbed by its deeper structures as heat. This heat triggers the body’s natural healing process, causing the creation of additional collagen and other tissues. Over time, this healing response results in healthier and younger-looking skin.

What Can I Expect from a Skin Tightening Treatment?

Unlike many other skin tightening treatments, no anesthesia is required before patients receive an Exilis Ultra™ treatment. In fact, many people report that the treatment is extremely comfortable and relaxing, feeling like a hot stone massage. Each session usually takes between 20 and 40 minutes to complete and involves little to no downtime. While some pinkness and tenderness at the treatment area are possible after treatment, this usually subsides within a few days. Typically, we recommend that patients undergo three treatment sessions for patients to see optimal skin tightening results.

Am I a Candidate for a Skin Tightening Treatment?

Nearly anyone interested in tightening the skin on their face or neck is a potential candidate for a skin tightening treatment with our Exilis Ultra™ system. However, before undergoing treatment, patients must first schedule a consultation appointment with a member of our medical staff in order to confirm that they are eligible for treatment.
