Skin Tightening
La Jolla

Welcome to La Jolla Laser Derm, where you can discover the ultimate skin tightening in La Jolla. Utilizing the cutting-edge technology of lasers and collagen bio-stimulators such as Sculptra and Radiesse, and Exilis Ultra, we provide a range of treatments for skin laxity. These target the face as well as the body to help you achieve a revitalized, youthful appearance.

Tighten Your Skin & Sculpt Your Contours

Our skin-tightening cosmetic procedures are designed to lift sagging skin, effectively sculpting your natural contours and firmness. As we age, collagen and elastin levels decrease, causing the skin to lose elasticity, develop wrinkles, and sag. La Jolla Laser Derm offers advanced techniques such as laser treatments, Sculptra, Radiesse, and Exilis Ultra, which stimulate collagen production and promote tissue remodeling. The result is a rejuvenated, more youthful appearance, with firm facial contours and all-over toning.

The Relation Between Collagen & Skin Laxity

Collagen, the most abundant protein in our skin, is crucial in maintaining its structure and elasticity and therefore a fundamental aspect of skin tightening in La Jolla. As we age, collagen production naturally decreases, resulting in a decline in skin firmness and suppleness. This decrease in collagen levels leads to the phenomenon known as skin laxity, where the skin becomes less taut, leading to sagging and wrinkles. Skin tightening treatments aim to stimulate collagen production to restore the skin’s youthful firmness and counteract the effects of aging.

Laser Skin Tightening

Laser skin tightening is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses targeted laser energy to stimulate collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin. The heat from the laser penetrates the skin, causing controlled thermal injury to the collagen fibers. In response, the body’s natural healing process is triggered, promoting the production of new collagen. As the collagen fibers regenerate and tighten, the skin becomes firmer and more toned, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and sagging.

Collagen Bio-Stimulators

Sculptra is an FDA-approved dermal filler used for non-surgical facial rejuvenation and skin tightening in La Jolla. Unlike traditional fillers, Sculptra contains poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a biocompatible substance that stimulates collagen production. When injected into targeted areas of the face, Sculptra acts as a bio-stimulator, triggering the body’s natural collagen synthesis process. As new collagen forms over time, it gradually restores facial volume, reduces wrinkles, and improves skin laxity. The results are subtle, long-lasting, and provide a more youthful and natural-looking appearance.

Radiesse is a popular injectable filler used to restore volume and reduce the signs of aging. Composed of calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres, it provides immediate volume upon injection and stimulates collagen production over time. The microspheres act as a scaffold, supporting the development of new collagen, which further enhances skin firmness and elasticity. This dual-action approach results in a more youthful and natural-looking appearance, with the effects of Radiesse lasting for a considerable period.

Exilis Ultra

Exilis Ultra is a cutting-edge non-invasive device used for skin tightening in La Jolla as well as more general body contouring. This treatment combines radiofrequency (RF) and ultrasound energy to target the skin’s superficial and deep layers. The RF energy heats the skin, stimulating collagen production and causing tissue tightening. Simultaneously, the ultrasound energy penetrates deep into the tissue, breaking down fat cells. The combination of collagen stimulation and fat reduction results in firmer, smoother skin and improved body contours without downtime.
