I am a 50 year old woman who has generally good skin tone and texture.I have been using retin A and botox and fillers on a regular basis for about ten years as a part of a maintenance program. My md suggested adding laser tigtening to my regime. I would prefer a system with as little down time per session as possible. What treatment would be best for this , what is the average cost roughly per treatment and how many should I receive to get a good result? What is therecommended time frame between treatments? Is there any other treatment I should be adding to my program considering my age and previous treatments? Thanx for any info

Take a look at the Infini for skin tightening. The downtime is minimal - 36 hours of redness. My wife went to yoga immediately afterwards and ran after 12 hours. The results are fairly impressive. It is a microneedling RF fractional device. I have lectured on this device and am currently the highest user in the country. It is a huge step forward in skin tightening. See my article in RealSelf and I also have before and afters on this site.
Hello dear. try jarvis cream. it's effective and you don't need to wait for long to see the result. I've tried it for mine and I was able to get rid of those awful wrinkles. It is also good for skin bacterial infections.
Dont! It won't work . A waste of money. I had Thermage done 2 years ago and it was painful and did nothing. So I went to another Doctor who basically told me skin tightners do not do anything

From what you describe I'm assuming you are seeing a dermatologist. If that's right, and you have been pleased with the care they have given you so far, you might want to ask what laser he/she has in their office and check out that specific one(s).
