What is skin tightening?
As you get older, your skin produces less collagen, which is the protein that provides your skin with youthful strength and bounce. The team at Excel Aesthetics in Miami, under the medical direction of Joseph Durandis, MD, offers advanced skin tightening treatments to improve your look and restore your more youthful skin.
What tools are available for skin tightening?
Excel Aesthetics is an advanced medical aesthetics center that uses the finest equipment and materials available to enhance your natural beauty. The tools used for skin tightening at Excel Aesthetics include:
Icon™ aesthetic laser system
The Icon aesthetic laser system is an advanced laser system with many uses. The aesthetic tool uses intense-pulsed light (IPL™) and fractional laser technology, making it a versatile cosmetic tool. For skin tightening, the fractional laser has the ability to penetrate the deep layers of your skin to stimulate collagen production to restore strength and support.
TempSure Envi is an aesthetic tool that uses radiofrequency energy to tighten your skin. The heat produced by the radiofrequency energy causes an immediate tightening of the cells under your skin. The radiofrequency also triggers collagen production to assist in your skin’s renewal process to improve both tone and texture.
The tool the team at Excel Aesthetics uses for your skin tightening depends on your aesthetic goals and needs.
What beauty concerns benefit from skin tightening?
The team at Excel Aesthetics uses skin tightening to fix many beauty concerns. Some of the most common include:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Loose skin on the face or neck
These skin tightening treatments are most often recommended for moderate skin laxity to help tighten and tone.
What can I expect during skin tightening treatment?
Your skin tightening experience may vary depending on the tool chosen for your treatment, as well as your aesthetic goals. Both the Icon aesthetic system and TempSure Envi are well-tolerated by most patients. However, if you have a low pain threshold, be sure to let your specialist at Excel Aesthetics know so they can make adjustments to your treatment plan.
While skin tightening treatments can improve your look after your first session, to get the best results you may need a series of treatments. Your specialist at Excel Aesthetics designs a personalized treatment plan to get you the results you desire. There’s no downtime following your skin tightening treatment, so you should be able to get back to your usual activities afterward. With good skincare practices, including daily use of sunblock, your skin tightening treatments should keep your skin looking young and fresh for a year or more.
