Skin Tightening Q & A

What are skin tightening treatments?

A surgical facelift was once the best method of tightening loose facial skin as you age, but fortunately, there are many effective nonsurgical facelift treatments today due to recent innovations. You can tighten your skin for a younger-looking appearance without the inconvenience or risk of invasive surgical procedures.

Some of the most popular nonsurgical skin tightening treatments include:

  • Radiofrequency (RF) energy
  • Microneedling
  • Ultrasound energy
  • Laser therapy

Some technology uses a combination of RF and laser energy to tighten your skin from within by stimulating new collagen production. The thermal energy that penetrates below the surface of your skin heats the tissue below. This encourages your body’s natural healing response to begin producing new collagen and elastin — the building blocks of smoother, more supple, younger-looking skin.

What areas respond well to nonsurgical skin tightening treatments?

Noninvasive skin tightening treatments are often effective for treating numerous areas of your body, including:

  • Face and eyelids
  • Neck and chest
  • Jowls and under your chin
  • Arms
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Belly
  • Legs

Depending on the procedure and the extent of your skin laxity, you may need several treatment sessions to achieve your desired results. Some men and women go through an initial series of skin tightening treatments and return for touch-ups a couple of times a year to maintain their ideal look.

What are the benefits of nonsurgical skin tightening treatments?

In addition to providing softer, smoother, firmer skin, other benefits of nonsurgical skin tightening treatments include:

  • A noticeable “lifting” effect in the treated area
  • Tighter skin without the risks of surgery
  • No scarring
  • Little to no downtime
  • Low risk of adverse effects
  • In-office procedures typically take an hour or less
  • Long-lasting results

Some patients like to come in for skin tightening treatments during their lunch hour, so they can return to work and their daily activities without interruption or inconvenience.

Am I a candidate for skin tightening treatments?

If you have mild to moderate skin laxity, you may be a good candidate for skin tightening treatments. Additionally, if you’re in overall good health, you’re not pregnant, and you don’t have any medical conditions that may prevent you from undergoing RF, laser, or ultrasound treatments, you may be a good candidate.
