Laser Skin Tightening Overview
Laser skin tightening is performed using intense light technology to penetrate the layers of the skin. The heat from the laser allows collagen production to be boosted, resulting in the excess collagen to create tighter, firmer skin in the treated areas. Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Amir Moradi offers laser procedures at Moradi MD in San Diego, CA, to dramatically improve aged or lax skin. All laser treatments are performed by our Certified Physician Assistants. If you are interested in learning more, call our Southern California practice today to schedule a personal consult.

Types of Lasers
- SkinTyte BBL: SkinTyte BBL is a laser treatment that utilizes infrared energy to deeply heat soft tissue. While this tissue is being heated, the treatment area is simultaneously protected by the system’s sapphire contact cooling feature. As a result of this targeted heating, the soft tissues in the treatment area coagulate, and collagen contracts. Both of these actions stimulate the body’s natural healing process and, over time, will result in firmer, more youthful looking skin.
- GentleYAG Pro: Like SkinTyte BBL, GentleYAG Pro uses laser technology to heat the underlying layers of the skin. The GentleYAG Pro uses a patented epidermal cooling system (the Dynamic Cooling Device) to protect the skin surface and ensure patient comfort throughout treatment. This laser treatment encourages the growth of new collagen and over time, the skin will take on a firmer appearance that helps to define facial and/or body contours.
- Infini is one of the latest radiofrequency technologies that adds a new dimension to treat wrinkles, sagging skin, and improve skin texture. In addition to the effective RF laser built into the technology, Infini combines this with microneedling. This dual effort allows the skin to not only be targeted underneath to encourage the production of collagen, but it disrupts the skin's surface for cell turnover and new skin tissue growth. Most patients see excellent results in about 2 -4 treatment sessions.
What to Expect with Laser Skin Tightening
The most common side effects of laser skin tightening treatment are swelling and redness of the skin at the treatment site, which typically lasts for about 24 – 48 hours. The skin in the area is also likely to feel warm, much like the feeling that is experienced when the skin has a minor sunburn. Although these side effects should only last a few days, it is important to report them to Dr. Moradi should they continue. The results of laser skin tightening will vary for each patient. Some patients notice results immediately following their first treatment, while others will experience gradual results in the weeks and months following treatment. Depending on the severity of the condition being treated, patients may require a series of 4 – 6 treatments to achieve optimal results. The treatment will stimulate new collagen production, but as the aging process continues, collagen will continue to break down. For this reason, it is recommended that patients schedule periodical maintenance treatments every 3 – 6 months to maintain desired results.
