Skin Tightening Q & A
What is skin tightening?
Nonsurgical skin tightening is a safe, effective, noninvasive procedure that uses heat-based therapies to tighten up loose skin.
While the main goal of the treatment is to decrease skin laxity, TempSure™ Envi, Cynosure Icon™ 1540 non-ablative laser, SkinPen® Microneedling, and Evolve Tite, improve the texture, appearance, and overall quality of your skin.
In certain treatment areas, especially the chin, nonsurgical skin tightening may also give you a slimmer or more contoured appearance.
What are the advantages of nonsurgical skin tightening?
Nonsurgical skin tightening has many advantages over traditional surgical facelifts. First, your doctor doesn’t have to make a single incision or stitch. You also don’t have to schedule any downtime or recovery time.
Nonsurgical skin tightening with TempSure RF and Evolve Tite works with your body’s own natural healing and skin rebuilding processes through radiofrequency. Icon 1540 and SkinPen® both create a medical “injury” to the skin to promote a natural healing response that results in tighter, fresh, and younger looking skin.
All technologies stimulate wound healing and collagen remodeling to encourage your skin to rebuild itself with new collagen and elastin and increase blood flow to treatment areas. Nonsurgical skin tightening literally creates younger skin that’s:
- Less wrinkled
- More fine-grained
- More glowing
You can tighten the skin on your face, neck, and décolletage, depending on your needs.
How does TempSure tighten skin?
TempSure RF uses radiofrequency waves to heat your skin and stimulate collagen production. The wand heats up as it works, which helps the waves penetrate the different layers of your skin and encourages new collagen production.
How does Evolve Tite tighten skin?
Evolve Tite uses bipolar radiofrequency waves stimulate collagen production. The hands-free device heats to desired clinical temperatures, resulting in collagen production in the treated tisue.
How does the Cynosure Icon 1540 tighten skin?
The handheld Icon 1540 device delivers pulses of laser energy to the deepest layers of your skin, creating an injury and stimulating the skin to heal itself resulting in fresh and renewed skin.
You will feel a pulse of laser light and a heating sensation as the device stimulates the production of collagen and elastin.
How does the SkinPen tighten skin?
Microneedling is a skin treatment that uses your body’s healing powers to break down old skin and rebuild it with healthy new proteins. The SkinPen®’s single-use surgical needle cartridges create precise, vertical wound channels in your skin that stimulate your body’s healing processes.
How long does nonsurgical skin tightening take?
All treatments usually take less than an hour. Most patients get the results they’re looking for after undergoing a series of 3-4 treatments.
The Icon 1540, SkinPen®, Evolve Tite and TempSure RF work with your body’s natural skin healing and rebuilding processes, so it can take a few weeks before you see noticeably smoother and tighter skin.
As collagen and elastin continue to remodel your skin over the next 2-3 months, your results improve even more. You may even experience continued tightening for up to six months following your final session.
Results can last from 1-3 years. To schedule your first skin tightening treatment, contact the experts at Laser & Aesthetics Studio of Winter Park by phone or online.
