What is Skin Tightening Treatment Like?
These treatments may produce a feeling of warmth as the collagen-producing layers of skin become heated. Most people find this easy to tolerate, and many report that it feels like a hot stone massage. Treatment can take anywhere from fifteen minutes to an hour or more, depending on the treatment areas and the type of treatment. Results can start to appear after a few weeks, but collagen development can take up to three months to reveal your best results.
Where Can I Have Skin Tightening?
You can have skin tightening on your face or almost anywhere on your body. People choose non-invasive skin tightening to address loose skin after liposuction or tighten any problem areas. Popular areas for skin tightening include the face, neck, jowls, and upper arms, but you can have skin tightening wherever you have concerns about skin laxity.
Which Skin Tightening Treatment Will Work for Me?
Dr. Schwartz and his team will help you decide which treatment will work best for you. If your goals include improving skin texture and tone, Opus Plasma® can tighten and resurface. SkinTyte™ is often recommended for loose neck and jowl skin. A complete assessment will help determine which treatment will meet your goals and work best with your skin needs.
Is There any Downtime With Skin Tightening?
These non-invasive procedures have little to no downtime. You may have some redness or sensitivity in the treatment area that lasts a few days. Due to the skin resurfacing, Opus Plasma® can involve more redness and minor peeling in some people. You can return to work after your treatment sessions. Since UV rays will damage your developing collagen and hinder your results, use sun protection and avoid sun exposure while healing.
Am I a Good Candidate for Skin Tightening?
Most people make good candidates for non-invasive skin tightening. The variety of treatment methods allows us to customize treatment for you. Good candidates have mild to moderate laxity. If you have severe loose skin, Dr. Schwartz may recommend a different procedure. Before treatment, skin tightening candidates should tell their team about any active skin conditions.
