What is Skin Tightening?
Skin tightening is a non-surgical treatment that uses relatively painless radiofrequency energy to rejuvenate aging skin. You can enjoy significant skin tightening benefits with the Lumenis Legend Pro+™ . This device combines a number of technologies that have been used for skin rejuvenation for years as well as advanced developments in the skin tightening industry.
How Much Does Skin Tightening Cost?
The cost of your skin tightening treatment with the Lumenis Legend Pro+™ device will vary depending on your specific treatment goals. To determine the exact cost of treatment, we invite you to schedule a personal consultation with Dr. Wassermann or one our our Lumenis specialists. During your consultation, you will develop a personalized treatment plan that will satisfy your unique cosmetic goals. We will provide you with the full cost of treatment. To help make our treatments accessible to those who need them, we accept a variety of payment options as well as financing through CareCredit®.
How Does Skin Tightening Work?
The Lumenis Legend Pro+™ is based on radiofrequency energy. When radiofrequency energy is delivered to the skin, it stimulates the production of collagen and elastin - two ingredients that are essential for skin health and volume. The Lumenis Legend Pro+™ combines four different approaches to produce maximal results. By using Hybrid Energy, TriPollar® RF, DMA™ muscle stimulation and TriFractional™, this skin tightening treatment provides immense rejuvenation benefits that enable the body to heal and restore itself.
How is Skin Tightening Performed?
Skin tightening with the Lumenis Legend Pro+™ requires no anesthesia, and you can relax comfortably for the duration of the treatment. To begin treatment, a Legend Pro+™ handpiece will be applied to the desired treatment area. Then, the device will emit radiofrequency energy to resurface the outermost layers of the skin, stimulate collagen and elastin in the deeper layers, and stimulate muscle activity below that to further enhance the contours of the face. This treatment can be completed in less than an hour.
What is Recovery Like Following Skin Tightening?
With the new Lumenis Legend Pro+™, there is very little downtime. Patients may choose to take the rest of the day off, as minor side effects such as redness or sensitivity are common. However, these symptoms typically fade within a few days, and you will be able to resume nearly all normal activities following your treatment.
What Results Can I Expect from Skin Tightening?
The results from the skin tightening treatment with the Lumenis Legend Pro+™ develop gradually. Immediately following treatment, the body begins producing collagen and repairing the skin. This process will become noticeable in a few weeks, with full results becoming visible in three to four months. We may also recommend additional treatments for enhanced results. While the skin tightening treatment can’t prevent future aging, the results are quite long-lasting and can be easily maintained with repeated treatment sessions.
