About Skin Tightening
When you're born, you have a full stock of the nutrients elastin and collagen that make your skin soft, smooth, resilient, and healthy. Eventually, this natural stock of nutrients becomes depleted, and the skin of your body and face decreases in resiliency, causing wrinkles, lines, and skin that sags. If you want to improve the tightness and general health of your skin without surgery, look into nonsurgical skin tightening at MD Boutiques at Pine Creek in Colorado Springs, CO. With the use of state-of-the-art equipment, nonsurgical skin tightening stimulates the natural production of elastin and collagen in the areas treated so you can develop healthier, firmer skin. If you are looking to firm the skin on your face or body without the time and expense of a surgical lift, schedule your free consultation at MD Boutiques at Pine Creek. We will talk to you about how nonsurgical skin tightening could improve your complexion.
Nonsurgical skin tightening may be a good option for you if you have loosening or sagging skin but don't want to have a surgical procedure. Nonsurgical skin tightening may be used on many areas of the body and face, such as the stomach, neck, thighs, and arms. The ideal patients for this treatment:
- Are in good general health
- Are near or at a stable, healthy weight
- Have light or medium loose skin on the body or face
- Have wrinkles or lines on the body or face
- Want to improve the appearance and health of their skin
MD Boutiques at Pine Creek uses Lumenis technology to perform nonsurgical skin tightening. To begin, the areas to be treated will be thoroughly cleansed to eliminate any oil, makeup, and lotions. We will also ensure you are not wearing any jewelry. Once you are ready, the handpiece that delivers the radiofrequency energy will be evenly passed over the skin several times for a thorough and efficient session. The RF energy will stimulate tissue deep beneath the skin to start producing elastin and collagen, which firms and tightens the skin. A session may take around 30 – 90 minutes, depending on the size and number of areas treated. Once your treatment is complete, you'll be able to leave and get back to your normal routine.
What to Expect
Following your skin tightening procedure, the affected skin may be slightly pink and sensitive for a few hours. This is normal, and you will feel back to yourself quite quickly. After your procedure, your aesthetician will discuss methods to care for the treated skin at home after your treatment, including keeping the skin moisturized and protected from the sun. Since elastin and collagen stimulation and growth is a slow process, most patients won't be able to see noticeable improvements right away. You will probably need to have multiple sessions to get significant results; however, your results will be the tightened and enhanced general appearance and health of your skin. At your initial consultation, we can help you develop your custom plan for treatment to meet your needs and cosmetic goals.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does nonsurgical skin tightening cost?
Your costs for skin-tightening treatments will depend on the number of areas you are having treated, as well as the size of the areas (for example, face vs. thighs). During your initial consultation, we will talk to you about your specific treatment plan and its estimated costs. We will also tell you about our payment options and how to find low-interest financing.
What is collagen important?
The collagen in our body is important because it helps keep our skin firm, elastic, and hydrated. Unfortunately, our natural aging process causes the body's production of collagen to decrease. That is why our skin gets thinner and looser as we get older. Nonsurgical skin tightening procedures can stimulate the production of collagen in our body, eventually leading to skin that appears younger and firmer.
Will skin tightening hurt?
Some patients report feeling a minor sensation of heat or warmth during the skin-tightening procedure. Major discomfort is rarely if ever experienced.
Will I be in pain afterward?
Most patients report experiencing numbness, temporary swelling, and redness after their procedure, though not usually pain. These effects are all very temporary, lasting only a few days. As the collagen in your body continues to increase during the months after your treatment, your results will continue to develop. Some patients could require more than one treatment to achieve their desired results.
Is nonsurgical skin tightening safe?
There are rarely side effects from a nonsurgical skin tightening treatment, and they depend on the skill and training of the aesthetician, as well as the technology used. If any side effects occur, they will most likely be redness, slight swelling, numbness, and loss of volume in the area. Your aesthetician can talk to you before your treatment to further explain any possible side effects.
