Laser skin tightening is frequently used to treat:
- Wrinkly and uneven skin
- Fine lines around the facial features
- Facial tones
- Specific problem areas across the entire body
Exilis Ultra Laser
Our skilled laser skin tightening experts use the advanced Exilis Ultra laser to transmit radio frequency (RF) and ultrasound energy into the skin to tighten it and reduce the signs of aging. The Exilis Ultra laser can be used to target areas across your entire body, including:
- The eyes (reducing bags under the eyes, as well as wrinkles and sagging skin)
- The face (reducing sagging and wrinkled skin around the mouth, jawline, and forehead)
- The body (including arms, back and chest areas, love handles, butt, thighs, elbows, breasts, and knees. This laser also helps minimize bulges and dimples and eliminate cellulite.)
This laser is also helpful in lifting and tightening the tissue and skin for patients receiving breast and butt lifts.

Laser skin tightening is a minimally invasive, non-surgical treatment that uses an advanced laser to heat the collagen under the skin’s surface and tighten the skin. This treatment helps to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity to restore a firm, youthful appearance to your skin.
Before receiving your laser skin tightening treatment, remove all makeup, sunscreens, oils, or other substances on your skin. Our doctors will apply a topical anesthetic to the treatment site, and provide protective eyewear if necessary. A handpiece will be used to apply brief pulses of laser energy to the skin, while a continuous burst of cool air will be used to ensure your comfort. We may go over the treatment area several times to provide you with the best results. Laser skin tightening treatments typically last 30-60 minutes. There is no downtime required for recovery, and you will be able to return to your regular activities when you leave our office.
Your treatment should not be comfortable. We will provide a topical anesthetic to minimize discomfort prior to beginning treatment. You may feel a heating sensation during your treatment, which can be eased by the burst of cool air produced by the laser handpiece. It is also common to feel a mild stinging sensation. Any discomfort should dissipate within a few minutes after your treatment session, though the treated area may feel warm for up to 48 hours following your appointment.
Most patients receive a course of six treatments, with each treatment session performed at two- to four-week intervals. It may take up to four treatments before you begin seeing results, and improvement to your skin can continue for up to six months following completion of your treatment.
