Skin Tightening Q & A

What is skin tightening?

Skin tightening is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment offered at Metroplex Dermatology. The cosmetic and general dermatology practice uses advanced non-invasive aesthetic tools that heat the deep layer of your skin to get the desired results. 

The heat energy causes the proteins in your dermal layer of skin to contract, creating an immediate lifting and tightening effect. 

The heat from the aesthetic tool also stimulates the production of collagen, which is a structural protein responsible for your skin’s youthful strength and elasticity. Increasing collagen production prolongs the benefits of your skin tightening treatments.

Am I a candidate for skin tightening?

When you visit Metroplex Dermatology for a skin tightening consultation, Dr. Hensley conducts a comprehensive and patient-focused evaluation to determine if the treatment is the best choice for you.

You may be a good candidate for skin tightening if you have mild to moderate skin laxity that affects the look and texture of your skin. Skin tightening treatments lift your saggy and crepey skin and smooth out lines and wrinkles on your face, neck, and arms.

Some skin tightening treatments even improve the appearance of cellulite. 

What happens during skin tightening?

Dr. Hensley creates personalized skin tightening treatment plans specific to your needs and goals. He reviews the details of your plan at your consultation so you know what to expect. 

During your session, Dr. Hensley places the skin tightening tool on your skin. You may feel a warm tingling sensation during your treatment, but little to no discomfort. Most skin tightening sessions take an hour or less.

After your session, you may notice some redness and swelling at the site of your treatment. These side effects disappear within a few hours.

There’s no downtime following your skin tightening, and you can go back to your usual day after your session. 

How long does it take to see results from skin tightening?

You should notice an improvement in your look immediately following your skin tightening session. However, it takes time for your skin to lay down new collagen and it may take several weeks until you see the full benefits of your cosmetic treatment. 

You may also benefit from a series of sessions to get the best results.
