Non-Surgical Skin Tightening
Loose, sagging skin on the face, neck, or body can keep individuals from looking as youthful and vibrant as they really are. While facial plastic surgery produces the most dramatic results, it is not the only option for turning back the clock on aging. Eugenie Brunner, MD, FACS, our double board-certified facial plastic surgeon, can customize a treatment plan using our advanced technology, a combination of minimally-invasive treatments, and her keen artistic eye to provide patients with beautiful and natural-looking results.

How Laser and Energy Devices Tighten Skin
Dr. Brunner offers numerous devices that tighten skin at a cellular level without the need for surgery. These treatments work by heating tissue under the skin’s surface to increase collagen production. There is little to no downtime required, making non-surgical skin tightening options increasingly popular.
What is Collagen?
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body and serves as one of the main building blocks of the skin. It is responsible for keeping skin strong and elastic, contributing to that plump and youthful appearance that everyone desires to achieve and maintain. Furthermore, this natural protein supports cell turnover, helping to remove dead skin cells naturally. As we age, collagen production slows down, resulting in lax, sagging skin.
Energy and laser devices create micro-channels in the skin that target the underlying dermal tissue without damaging the outer skin layers. The channels stimulate the natural healing processes, prompting the body to produce more collagen to restore the youthful firmness of the skin. Depending on the treatment used and the depth of the procedure, devices may produce results that are dramatic and long-lasting.
The Combination Approach
To achieve more optimal rejuvenation results, a combination approach is best to address various skin concerns while producing a cohesive effect that can lead to better and more immediate results, as well as greater patient satisfaction. In some cases, this might entail a combination of laser and energy devices, while other patients might benefit from adding injectables to the treatment plan. Dr. Brunner performs all treatments herself to ensure patients receive the highest level of care and the best possible results.
One Session or Multiple Sessions
Every patient’s skin and needs vary. While some patients will already achieve an optimal outcome after just one session, others who have more advanced skin concerns will benefit from a series of treatments to get full results. Dr. Brunner will customize each treatment plan according to the needs and concerns of the patient. We recommend starting with a consultation to evaluate your skin condition and to discuss your goals.
