Skin Tightening in Long Island, NY
The wrinkles on your face may develop when your skin loses elasticity. Our skin tightening treatments may help reduce lines and wrinkles to give you a younger appearance. In Long Island, Queens and surrounding communities in New York, Eunice E. Park, MD, is a dual board-certified facial plastic surgeon and ear, nose, and throat (otolaryngology) specialist who offers skin tightening treatments.
What is Skin Tightening?
Skin tightening is an energy-based treatment that may help with lines and wrinkles. Sun damage and aging reduces the amount of collagen in your skin. Without this important substance, your skin has no support structure and starts to collapse inward. Laser energy heats the deep layers of skin to stimulate collagen production.
Dr. Park uses Sciton® and Ultherapy® systems for skin tightening treatments. These systems are FDA approved for treating common signs of aging.
Benefits of Skin Tightening
With our skin tightening treatments, you may be able to treat sagging skin and signs of aging without surgery. The procedures take less than one hour and require no incisions or downtime. The results are long-lasting, but no cosmetic procedure stops the aging process.
Am I a Candidate for Skin Tightening?
Certain skin conditions may indicate that you are not a good candidate for skin tightening treatments. During your consultation, Dr. Park examines your skin and discusses your medical history to determine if skin tightening is right for you. If you are not a good candidate for the procedure, Dr. Park will recommend an alternative anti-aging option.
What to Expect from Skin Tightening
Skin tightening works by applying a specific energy source to the deep layers of skin. The systems we use are designed to target the damaged tissue without affecting surrounding skin, nerves, muscles or ligaments. The energy is applied in small sections using short bursts. Each burst may feel like a slight pinch on your skin. You may also feel a slight warming sensation. You may see some improvement immediately after the treatment, but full results can take time as the collagen develops in your skin.
Dr. Park will discuss the longevity of your results and any common post-treatment symptoms during your consultation appointment.
How Much Does Skin Tightening Cost in Long Island, NY?
Skin tightening costs vary by patient. After your consultation, we will have a treatment plan to determine your cost. The estimate may not include additional fees associated with the procedure and follow-up appointments. We offer several convenient payment options, including cash, checks and major credit cards.
