Skin Tightening Q & A

What is skin tightening?

Skin tightening is one of the most sought after treatments. Thankfully, it's a quick procedure that has no downtime. The SkinTyte II and Exilis Ultra 360 use powerful wavelengths that specifically target the depth of skin where collagen and elastin are most prevalent. Some tightening effects will be felt after the first few treatments, but the best results are noticed 4-6 months after the last treatment. The SkinTyte II and Exilis Ultra 360 can be easily combined with other procedures for a more synergistic effect.

With no downtime and very little discomfort,  skin tightening is a great procedure to not only change the elasticity in your skin but maintain what you have. 

The experienced team at All About Me Medical Day Spa uses skin-tightening treatments for almost any problem area, including:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Hands
  • Body

Skin-tightening treatment is also used to reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Am I a good candidate for skin tightening?

Your specialist at All About Me Medical Day Spa determines if you’re a good candidate for skin-tightening treatments when you come in for your consultation. Your specialist is an aesthetic expert who takes a patient-focused approach to care with a goal of restoring your youthful look using the least invasive, safest procedure possible. You may want to consider skin tightening to improve skin tone and texture and minimize the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

What can I expect during skin tightening?

Treatment time varies depending on the number of areas being worked on but takes anywhere from 15-45 minutes. There’s no downtime following your skin-tightening session, and you can go back to your usual activities afterward. However, you may notice skin redness in the treatment area, but these side effects should disappear within an hour.

To maximize your results, you may need a series of treatments set at 2-4-week intervals. Your specialist at All About Me Medical Day Spa devises your treatment plan before you get started so you know what to expect and how best to plan.

While you may notice an improvement in your skin immediately following your session, you should experience continued improvements over the next several months.
