Skin Tightening Q & A

What is skin tightening?

Skin tightening is a treatment that fights large wrinkles, deep skin folds, and skin sagging to make you look more youthful during middle age. The procedure is noninvasive and doesn’t require any injections, serums, or medications of any kind. 


At Defy Nature, the team uses the GentleMax Pro® laser by Candela™ to tighten your skin from within. You can see the results of your skin tightening treatment right away and without any downtime. Furthermore, the results improve with time as your skin responds to the treatment.  

How does skin tightening work?

Laser skin tightening harnesses the power of light energy and delivers it into your skin. The laser is an intense infrared beam of light that penetrates your skin without cutting or damaging it. One of the certified laser technicians at Defy Nature aims the laser at your specified treatment areas to stimulate new collagen growth in the deep layers of your skin. 


As the laser heats your existing collagen, the fibers tighten. This is why you can see a skin tightening effect immediately after your treatment, and you don’t have to wait for the new collagen to grow. 


You can get skin tightening treatments on any section of skin that sags or folds. The team at Defy Nature offers a popular skin tightening treatment option called a Laser Facial to tighten the skin on your face, neck, and upper chest. 

Am I a good candidate for skin tightening?

With laser skin tightening, many patients are candidates. The GentleMax Pro laser is safe and effective for all skin types with mild to moderate skin laxity. During a brief consultation with a provider at Defy Nature, they examine your skin and ask questions about your health to make sure you’re a candidate for skin tightening. You might be a good candidate for laser skin tightening if you:


  • Are generally healthy
  • Are between ages 30 and 60
  • Feel unhappy with the way your wrinkles look
  • Want to avoid surgery


If you have severe skin laxity, GentleMax Pro laser skin tightening might not be able to give you the results you want. In such cases, surgical options are much more effective. 


If you’re unhappy with your jowls, turkey neck, or general wrinkles, call Defy Nature or request an appointment online for skin tightening today.
