As you age, the natural store of collagen in your body decreases. As the amount of collagen depletes, skin looks thinner and less elastic. Skin loses collagen at a rate of 1-2% every year, resulting in lines and wrinkles. The most common area to tighten are the jowls and the ‘turkey neck’ which can be greatly improved with skin tightening.
What Are Skin Tightening Treatments?
There are two common ways that anti-aging clinics combat laxity and tighten your skin to look firmer, smoother, and healthier. For the best tightening procedure for face, we use FORMA radio frequency (RF). For the body we use BODYFX which is a combination of RF and high voltage pulse for tightening the skin, as well as causing Apoptosis (cell death) of fat cells stored in the skin. These services boost collagen for skin tightening, and work to reduce the appearance of fine lines and brings elasticity back to the skin.

What to Expect
At Your Appointment
This method uses RF technology to massage the face and heat up dermal tissue. This causes fibroblast ignition and collagen production. This method uses 2 (and sometimes more, depending on the treatment) electrodes. Having 2 electrodes used in this process allows for more precision when tightening the skin, which makes this process more ideal for the face. This treatment is one of our more relaxing treatments, feeling similar to a hot stone massage.
When you come to your appointment, it can last anywhere from 20 minutes at the minimum, up to an hour, depending on the treatment area. The process to tighten your skin is painless and noninvasive, with the possibility of some redness appearing on the skin. The treatment works by causing low-frequency waves, which cause your skin to tighten in response to the vibrations.
What to Expect
After Your Appointment
Skin tightening is painless and any redness will resolve within an hour after your appointment.
You will see immediate results, however, the best results can be seen after 6 sessions. We recommend spacing sessions out every 1-2 weeks.
