- You begin to lose fat volume in your face, leaving extra space for skin to hang loose.
- You also lose collagen, a protein found in skin that helps skin look smooth and firm.
If you want a fresh look without surgery, here’s what you should know about skin tightening procedures:
Skin Tightening Uses Gentle Heat
Skin tightening procedures, such as ThermiSmooth, use laser or radiofrequency energy to gentle heat the tissues deep beneath your skin. The heat, often compared to a hot stone massage, stimulates cells in your skin to create new collagen. After six to eight treatments, you’ll notice smoother and firmer looking skin.
Skin Tightening Isn’t Just For Your Face
Skin tightening procedures are safe to use all over your body, including your face, arms, thighs, and stomach. Anywhere that you have looser skin, you can use skin tightening procedures to achieve a smoother and firmer look.
Skin Tightening is Painless and Inexpensive
As mentioned before, skin tightening procedures are often compared to hot stone massages in terms of heat. You shouldn’t feel any pain throughout the short, 30-minute appointment, but a technician will be with you in case you do feel uncomfortable.
Spa skin tightening procedures are also less expensive than Botox, though the two treatments can be used together for even better results.
Skin Tightening Offers Long-Term Results
Unlike fillers, skin tightening procedures don’t offer instant results. While you may see some improvements within a week, your results will continue to improve for two to three months after your treatment as your body builds more collagen. We recommend six to eight treatments for optimal results.
Though it may take some time for results to appear, they can last a long time, between one to two years after your last treatment. At that time, you can discuss any next steps you’d like to take to maintain your results, whether that is additional treatments or surgical treatment.
