Skin Laxity

As part of the natural aging process, skin loses elasticity. Excessive sun exposure, pollution, smoking and other external conditions can accelerate the process. Loss of elasticity leads to skin sagging, jowling and laxity–not only on the face and neck but other areas prone to the effects of gravity, as well. Once thought to be impossible to improve without surgery, the newest and most effective treatments can reduce the progression of skin laxity to gently return the skin to a more toned, lifted, and youthful appearance.

Non-Surgical Skin Tightening

During your skin consultation, our experienced physicians at Capital Laser & Skin Care will evaluate your skin laxity concerns and develop a comprehensive approach to rejuvenation. Often the best results are achieved with a combination of energy-based device treatments coupled with the strategic placement of dermal fillers to gently lift and refresh the face and neck. The goal is to restore a more balanced, naturally youthful-looking appearance–not distorted, pulled or stretched in any way. Our menu of skin tightening procedures includes only the safest and most effective treatments, all of which are performed in the privacy of our treatment suites. Once started on a path of rejuvenation, we provide a comprehensive treatment plan to help maintain your refreshed look for years to come. At Capital Laser & Skin Care, we believe that although getting older is inevitable, looking your age doesn’t have to be.
