With multiple laser platforms, we can effectively tighten moderately lax or “crepey” skin on the face, neck, and body. In general, nonsurgical skin tightening procedures work by using targeted energy to heat deeper layers of skin, which stimulates collagen and elastin production and gradually improves skin tone and texture. Some treatments also affect fibrous tissue to help smooth cellulite.
As we age, the production of collagen and elastin—two proteins that help our skin stay plump, firm and smooth, slows down, resulting in areas of lax, sagging skin on the face, neck, and body. Skin tightening in Memphis can restore a firmer, smoother, more youthful appearance with little to no downtime.
What is skin tightening?
At A Beautiful You Medical Spa, skin tightening is a noninvasive, comfortable treatment that tightens and tones your skin. You can have this treatment anywhere on your face or body, making it effective for:
- Sagging skin
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Drooping jowls or neck skin
- Undereye bags and sagging brows
- Reducing the appearance of cellulite
- Reducing the appearance of stretch marks
As it works, this treatment doesn’t just tighten your skin; it also improves its appearance, reducing redness, lesions, and acne.
How does skin tightening work?
The skin tightening experts at A Beautiful You Medical Spa use the Venus Legacy machine. They chose Venus Legacy because it delivers results through a completely comfortable treatment.
During a skin tightening appointment in Memphis, your A Beautiful You Medical Spa provider moves the Venus Legacy device over the areas where you want to tighten your skin. This allows the device to send multipolar radiofrequency and pulsed electromagnetic fields into your skin. This energy creates therapeutic heat in the deeper layers of your skin.
The heat eliminates targeted fat cells and stimulates your body’s production of collagen and elastin, the proteins in your skin that keep it tight, smooth, and elastic. As a result, you see some results from your skin tightening treatment right away, and they continue to improve over the coming weeks as your skin builds a new network of collagen and elastin.
What should I expect during and after skin tightening treatment?
Skin tightening in Memphis is a completely noninvasive treatment. Expect gentle, pulsed suction as the device moves over your treatment areas, allowing the radiofrequency energy to penetrate more deeply. The entire treatment should take an hour or less.
There’s no downtime with this treatment; you can get it and continue on with your day immediately afterward.
Talk with your A Beautiful You Medical Spa provider about your skin tightening goals. They assess your skin and personalize a treatment plan for you. A program of multiple skin tightening treatments delivers more dramatic results.
