Skin tightening is a minimally invasive, non-surgical process that uses the technology of ultrasound radiofrequency to tighten the skin by heating the collagen under the skin’s surface, causing the skin to contract (tighten).
Skin tightening helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and loose skin for a smoother and younger look. The process of skin tightening treatment is not so tedious. Before a skin tightening treatment session, it is important for a patient to remove all make-up, oils, sunscreens, and any other substances that may be on the skin. The patient is then given an eyewear to protect the eyes while the treatment is carried on.
Benefits of Skin Tightening Treatment:
Patients generally notice immediate results following a skin tightening session, and further tightening is achieved over the next several months as new collagen grows. Depending on the areas being treated, most patients require more than one skin tightening treatment to achieve maximum results, but the effects are permanent.
Generally, patients notice a change in immediately after the session. Gradually, when the collagen grows on the skin the skin gets tighter. It is advised to take more than one treatment sessions for most of the patients to achieve complete satisfaction. The effects are permanent will minimal or no side-effects at all.
