Skin Tightening in West Hills, CA

What Is Skin Tightening?

While we are young, we are able to benefit from a generous supply of natural nutrients, which helps to keep our skin soft and firm. Over time, this essential storage of vitamins can deplete, making these tissues lose volume, which causes droopy skin. If you wish to enhance the look of your complexion, then consider skin tightening at Brian Hwang, MD, Plastic Surgery. During this procedure, the production of elastin and collagen is stimulated so you can attain more taut, healthier skin. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Brian Hwang is proud to offer this procedure in West Hills, CA using Morpheus8™ and Renuvion® skin-tightening technologies. Call to schedule an appointment with him today.

How Does Skin Tightening Work?

For the procedure, a local anesthetic is used before a small incision is made on the target area of your body. Dr. Hwang utilizes the Renuvion device, which delivers a combination of radiofrequency and helium plasma to the skin with controlled precision. The energy generates heat to contract the collagen and elastin underneath the skin, which tightens the skin and creates a smoother, more toned appearance. You can usually resume your regular activities 2 – 3 days after treatment. Results following minimally invasive skin tightening tend to remain in place for many years to come.

Smoother Skin without Surgery

When your goal is to reduce skin laxity in areas, like your back, arms, thighs, breasts, and abdomen, skin tightening is a great minimally invasive procedure that involves little recovery time. This procedure effectively rejuvenates sagging, aging skin to give you a healthier, youthful look. Please contact Brian Hwang, MD, Plastic Surgery in West Hills, CA so Dr. Hwang can design your specialized treatment plan for Renuvion skin tightening.
