What is Skin Tightening?
Skin tightening involves cosmetic treatments that tighten skin by stimulating collagen and elastin production to tighten the skin on specific areas of the body. The minimal and non-invasive treatments work best on areas like the face, neck, and other areas to restore contour and definition revealing a younger, healthier appearance.
Skin tightening is effective at creating firmer, more taut skin on areas of the body that tend to sag with age, and provides the following benefits:
- Safe for all skin types
- No recovery or downtime
- Very little discomfort during treatments
- Long-lasting results
What To Expect After
One of the main benefits of skin tightening is that there is no downtime or recovery with most skin tightening treatments. Since they are minimally or non-invasive, many people return to their daily activities following treatment.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: WHO IS AN IDEAL CANDIDATE FOR SKIN TIGHTENING?
A: Anyone showing the signs of loose, sagging skin around the neck, face, and other parts of the body may be an excellent candidate for skin tightening. Loose skin that hangs from your triceps, the “waddle” under your chin, the skin around your knees and thighs, and even loose skin around your abdomen can all be treated with skin tightening procedures.
Q: HOW DO I PREPARE FOR SKIN TIGHTENING?
A: Preparation for skin tightening is different with each treatment. Patients are provided detailed instructions to prepare for each procedure during a consultation with Dr. Kian. With skin tightening treatments, since they are not typically invasive, there is not much preparation for them.
Q: What SHOULD I expect from my SKIN TIGHTENING treatment?
A: Each skin tightening treatment follows a different treatment process. Skin tightening is designed to promote collagen production so that the skin can get firmer, tighter, and smoother.
Q: HOW LONG DOES A SKIN TIGHTENING PROCEDURE TAKE?
A: Each skin tightening treatment is different when it comes to the time it takes to complete the treatment. Most are completed within an hour or less.
Q: WHEN WILL I SEE THE RESULTS?
A: Some of the results from skin tightening are noticeable immediately following the treatment; however, it takes a few months for the full results to be visible. The treatments increase collagen production to add firmness, which takes several weeks to a few months to complete.
Q: WHAT IS THE COST OF SKIN TIGHTENING?
A: The cost of skin tightening varies with each treatment as it depends on the treatment, what area of the body is being treated, and if the selected treatment is combined with other cosmetic treatments.
