Skin tightening is a commonly asked treatment that people want to improve on. We do it in a lot of different ways. We do have what we call SkinTyte by Sciton. With that, we go over the area, it’s kind of almost like ironing, and the patient is telling us when it’s heating up, because what we’re going to want to do is to create collagen through infrared heat. We go over the neck area and the nose, it actually improves the nose for pore size, which is a nice benefit. We like to do the jowls and different areas like that. These are all ways that we promote collagen.
Another way of promoting college and to create skin tightening is the ProFractional laser, where we are creating microchannels in the skin to stimulate collagen, in about, I would say the results shown about three to six months. Profractional downtime can be up to five days depending on the level of treatment. It can be tailored for less downtime. Also SkinPen, where we’re using a tiny needle to do micro-needling, we are also creating collagen. The name of the game is to try to create collagen to tighten up the skin. There are many tools in the toolbox.
