Laser Skin Tightening in Miami, FL

Here at The Maercks Institute, we are committed to enriching the lives of our patients with cosmetic procedures like laser skin tightening. Dr. Maercks removes focal fat collections and the appearance of cellulite in a non-invasive way that allows for faster recovery times with the Maercks Multimodal Therapy.

After meeting with each patient, Dr. Maercks creates a specialized treatment plan with anywhere from 2-6 non-invasive techniques that work to obtain the desired outcome. Over the 6-8 weeks after treatment, collagen remodels and contracts and creates tighter, youthful-looking skin all over the body.

Skin Firming / SkinTyte™

Firmer, More Youthful Looking Skin


What is SkinTyte?

With the help of the principle of selective thermolysis, the skin is deeply heated even as it is protected and cooled. This procedure requires little to no downtime, and is completely comfortable for the patient. SkinTyte is used to treat skin of all colors and can be used all over the body.

Dermal collagen is deeply heated with infrared energy, promoting the contraction and denaturation of collagen in the skin. The heat from the treatment stimulates the body’s natural healing process, requiring the skin to produce new collagen that firms the treated area. The outer surface of the skin is cooled with a powerful cooling that keeps the patient comfortable at all times during the procedure.

Patients often experience a series of pulses as light energy is delivered to the area. This series is repeated over the treated area until the desired results are achieved. Dr. Maercks takes great pride in his ability to tailor each treatment plan to the individual patient, so the actual time required to treat the area depends on the case.

Profractional Erbium Laser

This procedure uses a carbon dioxide laser as the surgeon creates a grid pattern and directs tiny pulses of light at the skin, stimulating the growth of collagen. Patients who opt for Profractional Erbium Laser often have longer recovery times with several weeks of redness in the treated areas.

Fractional CO2 Laser

Dr. Maercks precisely controls the depth, intensity and percentage of treated areas in order to minimize redness after treatment. Combining superficial Erbium laser delivery and BroadBand Light, patients get the best of both worlds for ideal results.

After Treatment

As these treatments are all non-surgical, most require no downtime, only minor redness that fades after several hours. Results vary based on age, severity of condition, and number of treatments.

Every patient is unique, and the end results of every procedure will vary. Dr. Maercks chooses from a variety of treatment options based on the individual patient and the desired length of recovery time. When you choose The Maercks Institute, you can rest easy knowing that you are getting the combination of treatments that will work best for your individual situation.
