Skin sagging is a natural part of the aging process. Fortunately, modern aesthetic technology has brought us a multitude of pain-free non-invasive skin tightening treatment options that can reverse skin sagging, restore youthful firmness, and tackle the other effects of aging with minimal downtime. At American Hospital, we offer a variety of cosmetic treatment options that utilize Fotona 4D Laser and High Intensity-focused Ultrasound (HIFU) to regain skin’s plump appearance and invigorate its natural renewal process.
Skin laxity is a common concern as skin loses its elasticity, firmness, and youthful appearance over time. The skin droops when collagen levels in the dermal layers begin to decline. Collagen is a protein manufactured by the body that provides structure to the skin and supports the skin’s smooth and firm appearance.

However, with a plethora of clinically proven cosmetic treatment options available today, the changes your skin goes through can now be reversed. At American Hospital, our dermatologists are always ahead of the curve, using a variety of laser technologies and energy devices to provide highly effective solutions to patients.
Our personalized treatment plans can effectively promote the production of collagen, reduce skin laxity, and restore firmness to the skin as well as smoothness to the complexion.
While there are surgical options available to regain the skin’s elasticity and firmness, the minimally-invasive or non-surgical procedures have emerged as the most sought-after treatments for offering quick results, painless experience, and minimal or no damage to the dermal structure with a fast recovery time. Some of the contemporary yet effective skin tightening treatment options are:

An experienced Aesthetica Specialist will begin with the assessment of your skin type, discuss with you all available options along with their pros and cons, take into account your particular needs, and develop an effective personalized skin tightening treatment plan accordingly.
At American Hospital, we use high-end devices like Fotona 4D and High Intensity-focused Ultrasound (HIFU) to assess skin and customize treatments to each patient’s precise needs for optimal outcomes.
