What type of lines and wrinkles does skin tightening help with?
Skin tightening is an ideal treatment for fine lines and wrinkles like those around your eyes (crow’s feet) or on your forehead. It’s also a great solution for fine lines in your neck.
If your skin’s starting to sag as you age, it’s a result of normal collagen depletion over time. Skin-tightening treatments work to stimulate collagen production, so you’ll get new collagen to replace it. This gives your skin a younger and healthier appearance.
How does skin-tightening treatment work?
In a skin-tightening treatment at Sanger Avenue Aesthetics, your specialist moves the treatment handpiece over the skin surface where your wrinkles are. The energy pulses move into the dermal-subdermal junction creating the right amount of heat to stimulate collagen and elastin production. Over time, you’ll start making new collagen and elastin to smooth wrinkles away.
What does skin tightening feel like?
Most patients find skin tightening treatments to be tolerable. Depending on the specific treatment device and your needs, the sensation could range from a hot stone massage to very light pinging on your face or neck. Your Sanger Avenue Aesthetics specialist strives to ensure your comfort at all times during treatment.
When will I see results after skin tightening?
You could notice improved tightness instantly. This is a result of mild edema caused by the heat. Within about 10 days, the fibroblasts in your dermal skin layer start generating new collagen and elastin.
Most patients notice an improvement in about a month, if not sooner. Your body continues rebuilding collagen and elastin for the next several months, so your results improve over time.
How many skin-tightening sessions will I need?
That depends on your personal goals. Some patients only need one skin-tightening session, but most find that a series of treatments gives optimal results. Your Sanger Avenue Aesthetics specialist creates a treatment plan to maximize your results.
What is recovery like following skin tightening?
With skin-tightening treatments, there’s no downtime. You can return to your daily routine immediately after your treatment session.
