Skin Tightening Q & A

Book Appointment

How do I know if I'm a candidate for skin tightening?

Come into Center for a consultation so we can determine your candidacy. We want to make sure your skin tone, laxity, and areas are all viable for treatment first and foremost. Some patients may also benefit from cosmetic surgery in addition to the non-invasive treatments we offer here at Center. This might be the case if you’ve experienced dramatic weight loss in a short period of time. Otherwise, many people who see that their skin is aging will be able to turn back the tide with our offered skin tightening treatments.


What are common results for non-surgical skin tightening treatments?

With non-surgical skin tightening, your Center provider can effectively tighten moderately lax or "crepey" skin on the face, neck, and body, helping you to improve your appearance and postpone the need for surgery. It can tighten moderately loose skin on the face, neck or body without surgery, incision, or scarring. Treatments are typically performed in under an hour, with little to no downtime involved.


How does it work?

Radiofrequency skin tightening devices gently heat up subdermal tissue with radio waves. This causes your body to make more collagen and elastin, the two things that will make your skin look young again. This process literally remodels your skin structure from the inside out, shrinking lines and wrinkles and firming up your skin. It can also help reduce cellulite!


Which areas of my body can be treated for skin tightening?

Almost everywhere! This includes the face, décolletage, abdomen, arms, cellulite areas as well as knees, ankles, and elbows.


What are my treatment options?

At Center Aesthetic & Dermatology, we offer EMTone, Exilis Ultra, SculpSure, and the Fraxel Laser to treat all areas of skin laxity. During your consultation, we’ll address your chief concerns and determine with treatment is best for your face body.


How many treatments will I need to see a difference?

This all depends on the outcome of your consultation. Non-surgical skin tightening usually calls for multiple treatments, but that can be determined during your visit.
