Introduction to Laser Skin Tightening
Your skin’s structure depends on collagen and elastin—two fibers to give your skin firmness. Unfortunately, as you age, your body produces less of these two fibers, giving way to gravity and making skin sag. Skin laxity can also occur from rapid weight loss, where skin doesn’t quite catch up to the smaller amount of volume. At Aesthetics Med Spa in Lansing, MI, we offer our patients a chance to tighten up their skin and achieve a plumper, firmer, and more rejuvenated appearance.
What is Laser Skin Tightening?
Laser Skin Tightening is a non-surgical treatment that uses a BroadBand Laser (BBL) and can be performed on either your face or different parts of your body to make your skin look tighter, firmer, and less crepey. Due to the higher temperature on your skin, the process will also provoke collagen and elastin production.
What are the Benefits of Laser Skin Tightening?
Some of the many benefits that our Lansing Laser Skin Tightening patients have seen from their treatments are:
Who are the Best Candidates for Laser Skin Tightening?
At Aesthetics Med Spa, we believe the best candidates for Laser Skin Tightening are those in overall good health and maintain positive and realistic expectations. This treatment could be great for you if you’re trying to treat the following skin conditions:
What’s the First Step?
The first step in getting Laser Skin Tightening in Lansing is to schedule your consultation at Aesthetics Med Spa. When you come in, you’ll meet with either Dr. Ronan or a member of our Aesthetics team and discuss your aesthetic goals for the treatment. You will have your skin examined and be asked some questions regarding your medical history, during which time you should be open and honest as it will help prevent any unnecessary risks during your treatment or recovery. With all of this information, they will use it to create your customized treatment plan, and if you agree with this plan, our Patient Coordinator will help you schedule your first treatment session.
What to Expect on the Day of Laser Skin Tightening
When you come in for your Laser Skin Tightening treatment with BBL, the technician will begin by applying a numbing cream to make your experience more tolerable. Using a handheld device attached to the BBL, specific areas on your skin will be targeted, and the energy from the laser will penetrate the subdermal layers of your skin, destroying bacteria, reducing inflammation, and suppressing sebum (oily substance) production, while simultaneously stimulating collagen production. While the treatment doesn’t “hurt”, some patients express feeling a warm sensation as the handheld wand passes over the treatment site.
Laser Skin Tightening Recovery
Before you leave, we will offer you an ice pack to cool off your face or body and suppress any swelling or bruising that may occur, as well as apply a nice ointment to protect your treated skin. You will be able to return to your daily routine, but you should also expect your skin to be reddened for at least a few hours, and you will need to wear good sunblock if you are outside. Keep in mind that your skin will be very sensitive to UV rays, so you will want to protect it for at least a week or so to avoid melasma (patches of skin that are lighter or darker than the rest). You should expect to have between four and six sessions to achieve your best results paired with a good skincare routine.
How Much Does Laser Skin Tightening Cost in Lansing, MI?
The cost of Laser Skin Tightening in Lansing will vary on a number of factors, including the surface area you’re trying to treat and how many sessions you will need. The best way to find out how much your treatment will be is to come in for a consultation and have a treatment plan created for you. Once they have this made, our Patient Coordinator will be able to provide you with an accurate cost.

“ I have been seeing Dr. Ronan for Botox for migraines for years. Due to my Moyamoya disease nothing takes my pain away completely but the injections do help. He is great, and his staff is very nice. He is also my husband’s general practitioner. He is a wonderful doctor and a very nice person.”
