What is Nonsurgical Skin Tightening?
With our Cutera xeo® Laser System, we can change the appearance of your mildly loose skin at Essential Med Aesthetics. The firmness of your skin changes when your natural stores of collagen and elastin decline, which causes signs of aging, and sagging skin.
If you want to improve the tautness and overall health of your skin without plastic surgery, look into nonsurgical skin tightening at our practice in San Antonio, TX. During your consultation, our board-certified physician, Dr. Freda Cobbinah, will be happy to discuss nonsurgical skin tightening to firm your skin without the time and expense of lift surgery. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Cobbinah to learn more about nonsurgical skin tightening.

Who Makes A Great Candidate For Treatment?
Surgical skin tightening, or lifts like facelifts, remain the best way to minimize mildly sagging skin on your face and body, such as on the abs, under the chin, on the upper arms, and thighs. The best patients for this treatment:
- Are in good overall health
- Maintain a stable weight
- Have early onset to moderate skin laxity
- Have signs of aging on their skin
- Want to boost the firmness and aesthetics of their skin
How Nonsurgical Skin Tightening Works
To begin the session, we'll clean the target areas to remove any oil or lotions. We can discuss local anesthesia options upon your request; however, many patients find that any mild discomfort from the Cutera xeo Laser System is brief and manageable. As soon as you're ready, we'll evenly pass a handpiece over your skin multiple times. The heat will prompt the body to start producing elastin and collagen, which firms and tightens the skin. A session can take around 30 – 90 minutes, depending on the size and number of areas needing treatment. Once the procedure is over, you'll be able to leave and resume your normal routine.
After Your Skin Tightening Session
After your nonsurgical skin tightening appointment, the affected skin may be somewhat red, swollen, or numb. This is normal and will resolve on its own over several days. During your consultation, Dr. Cobbinah will discuss the best ways to care for the treated skin at home after your session, including keeping your skin moisturized and protected from the sun. Many patients will not see noticeable results immediately after the procedure.
Since elastin and collagen stimulation and production is a gradual process, you will see the full results of the treatment weeks to months after the session. These long-lasting results should enhance the overall health and appearance of your skin. You may need multiple treatments to achieve the most ideal outcome. At your consultation, Dr. Cobbinah can help you determine a custom treatment plan that meets your concerns and goals.
