Skin Tightening

Are you tired of seeing your skin
with fine lines and wrinkles?

Age, hormones, pollution, and cosmetics can make your skin sag and look leathery, but you don’t have to remain content with having unpleasant looking skin. With laser skin tightening at Destin Medical Spa, you can reduce the folds and wrinkles, making your skin taut, soft, and supple.

Destin Medical Spa is a specialized medspa in Destin, FL, and we have extensive experience helping our patients with laser skin tightening treatments. Contact us for more information.

How does laser heat help tighten skin?

As we age, our skin ages with us. The production of elastin and collagen in our skin – proteins that are responsible for giving us the firmness and softness which we love – starts to decline. As a result, the skin loses its strength and begins to fold, causing wrinkles.

When directed at the area to be treated, infrared laser heat can stimulate your dermal cells to produce more collagen and elastin. The collagen will make your skin fuller, while the elastin will give it elasticity. Together, these proteins will tighten your skin and make you look younger.

The laser skin tightening procedure is a completely non-surgical and non-invasive technique, which is very safe for everyone.

Who can undergo laser skin tightening?

Laser skin tightening is the best option for you if:

• You have mild to moderate skin laxity.
• You have wrinkles and folds on your face and neck.
• You have recently lost a lot of weight and have sagging facial skin as a result.
• You have poor skin texture and wish to improve it.
• You are ineligible or don’t wish to undergo a surgical skin tightening procedure.

You should avoid laser skin tightening if you are:

• Pregnant or breastfeeding your baby.
• Are on any medications or blood thinners.
• Have undergone a previous surgery or skin tightening procedure.
• You have severe diabetes (the condition may affect the quality of your treatment).
• You have dental implants or metal prosthesis (the laser may damage your implants).

At Destin Medical Spa, Dr. Amber Wiebe has extensive experience working with patients of all ages, and she can advise you about your eligibility for the laser skin tightening procedure. Dr. Wiebe has a Mastership from the American Academy of Facial Esthetics and is highly-qualified in using the infrared laser. You can trust her for premium-quality and safe treatments. For effective skin tightening, Destin Medical Spa is a foremost medspa in Santa Rosa Beach.


Get the best results, thanks to our
state-of-the-art V-Form Laser

At Destin Medical Spa, we use the globally-reputed and cutting-edge V-Form Viora laser to provide the skin tightening treatment.

The laser is powered by a specialized CoreTM Technology, which uses three different frequencies to target the deeper layers of the skin and provide focused skin tightening. The laser heat stimulates your dermal cells to produce collagen and elastin, necessary to tighten your skin.

The laser not only heats your skin cells, but the vacuum also increases microcirculation and lymphatic drainage.

While your skin will look more flushed thanks to the microcirculation, the lymphatic drainage gets rid of any toxins in your body, making your skin cleaner and brighter.

The laser skin tightening procedure at Destin Medical Spa

When you visit us for the treatment, Dr. Amber Wiebe will do a comprehensive evaluation of your skin tightening needs. On the day of the treatment, you are required to be free of any cosmetics and any metal accessories such as earrings. If the treatment area has hair, we recommend that you shave it prior to your treatment (waxing can make the area more sensitive to pain).

We provide a gentle anesthetic to numb the treatment areas. Next, we give you a sunblock (usually over SPF30) to apply before the treatment. Then we use the V-Form Viora laser to tighten your skin. Although you’re receiving laser light, the process of skin tightening doesn’t hurt. The laser beams may cause minor discomfort but no real pain or burns.

The entire treatment may take up to an hour, depending on the number of areas to be treated. If necessary, Dr. Amber Wiebe may even recommend multiple sessions.

Post-tightening care

After your skin is tightened, you may feel a minor tingling. Your skin may also look red and swollen, but these
symptoms will disappear in about a day. We may also prescribe lotions to soothe your skin.

You must avoid getting in the sun for at least a week after the treatment. Use SFP30+ moisturizer every day for two weeks. It is recommended for you not to wax, tan, or use cosmetics for a few days. Following these recommendations will help your skin heal and ensure you get the results you want.

You’ll start noticing a reduction in your wrinkles within a few weeks. Drastic improvements are more often seen after a few months as your body begins to increase elastin and collagen production.

Depending on your skincare regime, you may not need to get another treatment of laser skin tightening at Destin Medical Spa for a year or more. If you have any questions about the procedure, feel free to contact us today. We serve clients from Santa Rosa Beach, Niceville, Valparaiso, Freeport, Fort Walton, Crestview, Panama City Beach, and Navarre.
