Skin Tightening Q & A

What is skin tightening?

Skin tightening is a nonsurgical aesthetic treatment the experienced team at Advanced Plastic Surgery Center offers to tighten your skin and reduce the signs of aging. Collagen and elastin are the supportive proteins that make your skin smooth, soft, resilient, and healthy. Unfortunately, as you get older, the production of these proteins decreases, which leads to lines, creases, and sagging skin.

With advances in medical technology, you can restore a more youthful look without the need for surgery. Advanced Plastic Surgery Center is an innovative cosmetic and plastic surgery practice that uses Venus Freeze™ and Ultherapy® to tighten your skin. 

What is Venus Freeze? 

Venus Freeze is an innovative tool that combines radiofrequency energy with pulsed electromagnetic fields to tighten your skin and restore a more youthful look. The energy created by Venus Freeze gently heats the tissue under your skin, which stimulates the production of collagen and elastin to get the desired results.

Venus Freeze skin tightening is a painless beauty treatment that usually takes less than an hour. You may experience some skin redness, but these side effects disappear within a couple of hours after treatment. And there’s no need for downtime following your session.

To get the best results from your Venus Freeze skin tightening, your cosmetic specialist at Advanced Plastic Surgery Center may recommend 6-8 sessions set at weekly intervals.

What is Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is an FDA-cleared noninvasive tool the team at Advanced Plastic Surgery Center uses to tighten loose skin on your face, chin, neck, and chest. This innovative aesthetic treatment uses ultrasound energy to stimulate the production of collagen to tighten your skin and restore a more youthful look.

Skin tightening with Ultherapy may take 30-90 minutes depending on the area treated, and comfort level varies from person to person. The team discusses what to expect during your treatment prior to getting started and makes adjustments as needed to ensure you’re comfortable throughout the entire session. 

Though you may experience some skin redness, there’s no need for downtime following Ultherapy and only one session is required to get the skin tightening effects. 

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

You may not see the results of your skin tightening immediately following your treatment. Production of collagen and elastin is a gradual process and it may take 2-6 months until you see the results. However, skin tightening treatments at Advanced Plastic Surgery Center are long-lasting.
