Reverse the Signs of Aging with Skin Tightening Technology

Skin tightening is an important strategy for reversing the signs of aging on the face and body.  Over time, characteristic areas of the face experience changes due to gravity including the eyebrows, lower face, jawline, jowls, and neck. On the body, the upper arms, abdomen, chest, and thighs are common areas that may be aided by skin tightening procedures.

A variety of technologies are used to tighten skin, harnessing energy from radiofrequency, ultrasound, and lasers to gently heat and tighten skin through the production of new collagen. At Art of Skin MD, Ultherapy and Protégé Elite are used to address facial sagging skin and crepiness. Exilis Ultra and Accusculpt laser treatment can be used on the neck and body to tighten and improve skin quality.

Some skin tightening treatments are completed during a single treatment session, while others require a series of treatments to achieve maximal results. All procedures are easily tolerated and require little to no downtime; some require no numbing while others may utilize unique treatment strategies to ensure complete patient comfort. For all skin tightening procedures, results are progressive over time, with maximal results usually being reached around 3-6 months after treatment.
