Skin Tightening FAQ
Can anyone do Skin Tightening sessions?
Most people will make good candidates for Skin Tightening, there are very few exclusions that can prevent you from the procedure. Please call the clinic with any concerns.
What areas can you have your Skin Tightened?
Virtually any area of the body or face can be treated. The most popular areas are Face, Neck, Upper Arms, Abdomen, Upper legs, Buttocks.
Will I notice a difference from my 1st Skin Tightened session?
One session will produce a visible difference, however the results usually won’t last beyond two week. Multiple sessions, once ever two weeks will produce more lasting results. 4-6 treatments every two weeks is recommended.
Will the Skin Tightening be permanent?
This depends on your current skin conditions, age and your current collagen production. Once you get the results you like, a series of maintenance treatments is recommended. A younger person under 30 may only need 1 treatment a year for maintenance, however an older person will likely need 2-3 / year for maintenance. Please note that we are all different, bad habits such as poor diet or smoking will definitely diminish the results sooner.
