What is Skin Tightening?
Skin tightening treatments treat skin laxity in the cheeks, jawline and throat area, and may be achieve by different means. Skin tightening treatments not only tighten the skin but also trigger increased collagen production, producing dramatic results that continue to improve over time as new collagen builds firmer and stronger skin cells.
How Does Skin Tightening Work?
Skin tightening is achieved using advanced radiofrequency (RF), laser, or ultrasound technology to treat areas deep beneath the skin’s surface and stimulate collagen production, which boosts the production of new, healthy skin cells. The results are a renewed appearance with increased firmness, radiance and smoothness in the skin. You may choose from among such options as eyelid skin tightening, radio frequency skin tightening, or ultrasound skin tightening, depending on various factors, such as the condition of your skin and your aesthetic goals.
What can be achieved with Skin Tightening treatments?
Skin tightening treatments can rejuvenate your face, neck, and décolleté region by firming and tightening the skin from the face down to the collarbone. Skin tightening treatments safely and effectively impart firmness to sagging skin in the face and throat without surgery or injections; however, skin tightening treatments will not produce the same results as liposuction or surgery, although skin tightening can be combined with other procedures for a more comprehensive makeover.
Is Skin Tightening Painful?
Skin tightening treatments are not normally painful, although some patients experience minor redness and tenderness in the skin after the procedure, which typically subsides within a day. Most patients resume regular activity immediately after skin tightening treatment.
How many Skin Tightening treatments will I Need?
In the majority of patients, optimal results may be achieved after two skin tightening treatments scheduled two weeks apart. Some individuals will see immediate results, but dramatic improvement occurs gradually over a period of six to eight weeks.
