Skin Tightening Q & A

What is skin tightening?

As you age, your skin loses its elasticity and pulls away from your face and body. This loosening of the skin is what causes wrinkles as you age, making you look older and, often, chubbier.

Skin tightening procedures use heat to target deep layers of your skin, causing them to produce collagen and elastin. Your body naturally produces collagen and elastin, which work to keep your tissues tight and structured, but you don’t produce as much of them as you age. After a skin tightening treatment, your skin looks less loose, and you look years younger!

What are the benefits of nonsurgical skin tightening?

There are many benefits to choosing nonsurgical skin tightening, and the treatment can target almost any area on your body that needs it. These benefits include:

  • No surgery
  • No scars
  • Tightens skin on your face to give you a younger appearance
  • Provides a “facelift” effect
  • Few risks of negative side effects
  • Quick treatments
  • Little to no downtime
  • Long lasting results (up to one year)

In addition, the results of nonsurgical skin tightening look natural, and you won’t lose any mobility in the areas that you target. That means that you’ll have your own recognizable, beautiful smile without a rigid or stretched-out look.

Is skin tightening safe?

While skin tightening is generally safe, some patients experience side effects from the treatment. They include:

  • Discomfort
  • Redness
  • Numbness
  • Swelling
  • Decreased volume in the treated area

These side effects are temporary if they occur. Dr. Michael Jones fully informs you of any additional risks before you commit to the procedure.

Am I a candidate for skin tightening?

You are a candidate for skin tightening if the treatment aligns with your goals: If you’d like tighter-looking skin and a younger look that isn’t too dramatic, then skin tightening is right for you.

Even though the side effects of skin tightening treatments are rare, the treatment might not be the best option for pregnant women or patients who are not in good health. After assessing your health and the medications that you take, Dr. Jones determines whether or not it is safe for you to have the treatment.

If you prefer a young, tight-skinned look, it isn’t too late for you to have it back. To learn more about skin tightening procedures, call or schedule an appointment online at Apex Health & Body Sculpting today.
