Facelifts and tummy tucks are quickly being replaced with non-invasive, highly effective laser treatments. Using advances in laser and radio frequency technology, we are able to promote skin contraction (tightening) by heating subdermal collagen. This procedure helps to reduce the appearance of cellulite and loose skin leading to a smoother, tighter feel. The result is a slimmer, more confident you without the scars and downtime of surgery.
Skin tightening procedures can help to treat loose skin that has come as a direct result of aging and/or weight loss. Skin tightening is specifically designed for those who want to have firmer skin without the added risk and cost of surgery. Dr. Ghohestani, our renowned dermatologist, is experienced in treating all skin types for both males and females. For more information, please contact our office at 210-698-6777 to schedule a consultation with our experts in Skin Tightening.
Different treatment options produce different results. Generally speaking, the more severe the treatment, the more dramatic the results. Our most popular treatment is the Radiofrequency Accent Elite treatment combined with fractional Co2 laser. Final outcome is very similar to those obtained with Ultherapy, however with significantly less amount of discomfort as compared to Ultherapy. Various treatment options produce results that last for differing amounts of time and that require differing amounts of down time. To learn more about what treatment is best for you, contact our office at 210-698-6777 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Ghohestani.
Costs associated with skin tightening are directly tied to desired results and the size of the treatment area. CO2 laser or fractionated CO2 laser resurfacing requires usually a single treatment with an average cost of $2799. As several treatments are usually needed, a patient should expect a higher cost.

2010-11-16 10:24:30 Dr. Ghohestani is a top dermatologist. He had a clear plan for my loose skin ; I saw … …. before seeing him; they all gave me various creams without any significant benefit. Dr. g was the first to offer a skin biopsy and then treated my skin condition. His research background helps him to be a better clinician.
2010-02-11 10:12:51 A true listening doc! The fact that Dr. Ghohestani doesn’t sell any skin care product is a plus. I liked the Doctor’s way of explaining all possible side effects of the fractional laser; I trust him.
