About Skin Tightening
When you are born, your body has a full supply of collagen and elastin that helps to make your skin smooth, soft, healthy, and resilient. In time, this supply of nutrients runs low and the skin slowly starts to decrease in elasticity, leading to lines, wrinkles, and sagging. If you want to improve the tautness and overall appearance of your skin without cosmetic surgery, consider nonsurgical skin tightening at GLO Laser & Med Spa in Houston, TX.
Utilizing advanced technology, such as Accent Prime™ by Alma, nonsurgical skin tightening prompts the natural generation of collagen and elastin in the treated areas so you can have firmer, healthier skin. During the consultation, our expert staff will be pleased to offer nonsurgical skin tightening to patients wishing to tone the skin on their body or face without the expense and time of a lift surgery.

"Oh wow, finally I have my Ultherapy done!!!1, I am sooooo amazed by Dr. Li's extensive experience and deep knowledge about human anatomy, anesthesiology and cosmetic medicine. Its very hard to find someone who can perform this procedure well while experiencing little pain. Even during the preliminary consultation, she made sure I understood not only HOW each procedure will be done, but WHY each procedure needs to be done. You will learn a great deal about your own facial/physical construction and be able to make an informed decision on what you would like to be done.2. Dr. Li has exhibits great bedside manners and professionalism. She takes the time to listen to your needs and expectations rather jumping in and telling you what she thinks should be done. Her professional manner will instantly gain your trust and you will connect on a personable level during your visit.3.Dr. Li truly goes above and beyond for her patients. She does tailors each treatment plan to what suits YOU as an unique individual. She is a rare find, an absolute gem and will make you feel beautiful and confident inside and out.4.I consulted 3 different clinic about Ultherapy. Dr. Li's office provided is the most reasonable treatment plan. Just did my 1st treatment on 1/25/2020. Also have also been getting facials done at Dr. Li’s clinic back for the past 1.5 years. Here staff has always made me feel welcomed and treated me as a valued client."- Z.F. / Google / Jan 30, 2020

Skin tightening surgery or “lift” procedures, such as a facelift, remain the most effective method to correct sagging or loose skin. Nonsurgical skin tightening can help if you do not wish to undergo plastic surgery. Accent Prime by Alma can be performed on most areas of the face and body, including the neck, stomach, arms, and thighs. The best patients for this procedure:
- Have good overall health
- Are at or near a healthy, stable weight
- Have mild to moderate skin looseness on the face or body
- Have lines or wrinkles on the face or body
- Want to boost the health and appearance of their skin
Before the process, the area(s) being treated will be cleaned to remove any makeup, dirt, or oil. Options for local anesthesia can be discussed if you want, but most patients find that any mild discomfort during the laser treatment is short-lived and easy to tolerate. After your skin is prepared, a special handpiece will be passed evenly over the skin multiple times for the most effective treatment. The energy prompts the body’s natural healing properties to produce collagen and elastin, which tightens and firms the skin. The procedure can take about 30 – 90 minutes, depending on the size and number of areas being treated. After the procedure is over, you will be able to leave and resume your regular activities.
What to Expect
After your nonsurgical skin tightening session, the treated areas may be somewhat numb, red, or swollen. This is typical and should heal on its own within 2 – 3 days. During your initial consultation, we will go over the best ways to care for your skin after your procedure, such as keeping the skin moisturized and protected from sun damage. Most patients will not see visible results immediately after the treatment. Since the collagen and elastin production is a gradual process, you can see the final results of your treatment about 2 – 6 months after the procedure. However, these results should be long-lasting and improve the overall health and appearance of your skin. You may want multiple treatments to get the ideal outcome. During your consultation, the professional team at GLO Laser & Med Spa will help you create your unique treatment plan based on your needs and goals.
