Skin Tightening Q & A
What is skin tightening?
Loose, saggy skin is an unfortunate side effect of the aging process. Not too long ago, a surgical facelift was the only treatment available to address skin sagging.
With advances in medical and aesthetic technology, nonsurgical skin tightening treatments can now lift and smooth your skin to restore your youthful look.
Dedicated to providing treatments that help you look and feel your best, skin tightening is one of the many services offered at Aesthetica Houston Med Spa. It works by delivering heat energy to the deep layers of your skin, which causes the cells to tighten and triggers the production of collagen.
Collagen is a structural protein that keeps your skin strong and resilient. Production of collagen decreases as you get older and contributes to the visible signs of aging.
In addition to reversing the signs of aging, skin tightening treatments may also reduce the appearance of cellulite.
What happens during skin tightening treatments?
Skin tightening is a painless in-office procedure that takes about an hour. During your session, Sarah places the skin tightening tool over the area undergoing treatment. You may feel some warmth, but most patients tolerate the treatment well.
You may notice some redness after your skin tightening, but these side effects disappear quickly. There’s no downtime after skin tightening, and you can resume your usual activities after your session.
What is radiofrequency microneedling?
Radiofrequency microneedling is an aesthetic treatment that combines the tightening powers of radiofrequency energy with microneedling.
During radiofrequency microneedling, Sarah uses a special tool that creates tiny puncture wounds on the surface of your skin and delivers radiofrequency energy to the deeper layers.
Both microneedling and radiofrequency energy stimulate collagen production and cell turnover to enhance the effects of your treatment.
How long does it take to see results from skin tightening?
You should notice improvements in your skin immediately following your skin tightening treatment. However, it takes time for your body to build up collagen, and you may not see the full effects until about six months after treatment.
Depending on your beauty needs and goals, you may benefit from more than one skin tightening session to get the best results. Sarah reviews her treatment recommendations with you so you can decide what works best.
