• Skin Tightening Questions & Answers

    We use radiofrequency skin tightening to increase new collagen and elastin growth. This technology uses heat to increase temperature levels in the epidermis and dermis to trigger new collagen production resulting in a firmer, smoother, and tighter appearance to the treatment area. We treat the face, neck, chest, and hands with skin tightening. Other areas upon consultation only. This treatment is safe and effective for all skin types.
    Keep in mind that multiple treatments are needed for best results. We recommend five treatments, spaced one to four weeks apart for best results. Collagen regrowth can continue up to one year post treatment. Typically, results are seen two weeks to two months post treatment.

    This is not a replacement for facelift. This is a way to prevent surgery when skin laxity is mild to moderate. From the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery (2020):

    As we age, production of collagen and elastin—two proteins that help our skin stay plump, firm and smooth—slows down, resulting in areas of lax, sagging skin on the face, neck and body. If you are bothered by skin laxity, non-surgical skin tightening can temporarily halt this process and restore a firmer, smoother, more youthful appearance with little to no downtime.

    Benefits of non-surgical skin tightening
    • Tightens mild to moderately loose skin on the face and neck without surgery or scars.
    • Many treatments can provide a noticeable “lifting” effect.
    • Little to no downtime is needed.
    • Very low risk of adverse effects when performed by a qualified provider.
    • Treatments can be performed in-office, typically in 1 hour or less.
    • Results can last up to 1 year.

    Limitations
    • Results appear gradually over several weeks or months following treatment.
    • Multiple treatments may be needed to achieve desired results.
    • Treatment will need to be repeated periodically to maintain results.
    • Not effective on more advanced skin sagging, such as pronounced jowling.
    Some patients opt to use topical numbing prior to their treatment. If you choose to use numbing cream, you will want to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to your treatment time to apply the numbing cream. Numbing cream needs to be applied to a clean face, we have our Revitalizing Cleanser ready for you at the clinic if you are coming from work. Once the numbing cream has been removed our provider will take treatment photos, cover your eyes with solid goggles for protection, and apply ultrasound gel to the treatment area. The treatment itself consists of multiple pulses on the treatment area, with areas of concern receiving up to 8-10 passes, until the full treatment area is covered. Once the treatment is complete, the gel will be removed, your face will be cleansed, and an appropriate, personalized skincare selection will be applied with SPF to finish your treatment.
    Typically patients report the skin “feeling” tighter and firmer as soon as the first treatment. Most patients notice visible changes after 2-3 treatments.
    Results can last up to one year. Without any maintenance, you should see results for at least 3-6 months. Maintenance treatments will prolong the results. Skincare is extremely important as well for protecting your results and investment. We recommend Really (our unbelievable anti-aging serum that stimulates as much collagen growth as a syringe of filler within two weeks of use), Retinol 10x, and Just Collagen. Treating the neck?
