If you’re looking to tighten and firm slightly slack skin, you may not need surgery if your doctor feels that a skin-tightening treatment can address your concerns.
Keep in mind, procedures like plasma resurfacing, radiofrequency treatments, fractional lasers, and infrared treatments work best on younger patients who are just starting to show the first signs of aging. They are not a substitute for surgery. If there’s too much sun damage and loss of elasticity, these treatments won’t garner significantly visible results.
While you may see some tightening on older skin, it’s important not to expect it to be to the same extent as what surgery can provide.
