Skin Tightening


There are a number of skin tightening treatments and technologies available to achieve the desired results; laser energy, radiofrequency energy, ultrasound energy, or a combination of the above. How do you know which is right for your skin?


Product Recommendation for Skin Tightening Treatments: Regenerating Skin Nectar with TriHex Technology®

Skin Tightening

Overview


Non-surgical skin tightening procedures work by using targeted energy to heat deeper layers of skin, stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin, resulting in a gradual improvement in skin tone and texture.

There are several skin tightening treatments and technologies available to achieve the desired results: laser energy, radiofrequency energy, ultrasound energy, or a combination of the above. The number of treatments needed varies from device, energy source, location, and individual patient needs.

Common Skin Concerns


The following are a few of the most common skin concerns that skin tightening treatments can benefit:

  • Sagging Skin: Loose skin, especially in areas on and around the face.
  • Wrinkles & Fine Lines: Facial wrinkles due to aging skin, especially caused by skin laxity.

Non-surgical skin tightening may be a great option for you if you have mild to moderate loose skin or excess skin on the face, neck, chest, arms, or abdomen. The downtime is shorter with non-invasive procedures, and while results can be seen with one treatment, multiple sessions are usually needed.

For those interested in a non-surgical procedure, we recommend using pre-treatment skincare to enhance results and minimize downtime. At ALASTIN, our professional procedure enhancement products are designed to support the process of restoring and rebuilding skin for faster healing time and optimized results.

We recommend using Regenerating Skin Nectar with TriHex Technology®:

  • Prepares skin prior to facial skin tightening procedure and helps maximize results.
  • Calms post-procedure skin and reduces the appearance of redness.
  • Helps reduce downtime and provides symptomatic relief.
  • Patented TriHex Technology® supports the production of new, healthy elastin and collagen production.

How Different Types of Skin Tightening Procedures Work


Non-invasive facial skin tightening treatments do not require surgery and aim to achieve firmer skin for a more youthful appearance. We've outlined some of the most common procedures that utilize the following technologies: Ultrasound, Laser, Radiofrequency.

Ultrasound Skin Tightening

Ultrasound energy bypasses the uppermost skin layers to heat deeper tissue which induces collagen production to firm and tone the treatment area.  One treatment is usually sufficient for mild to moderate skin laxity.  However, some people need three or more sessions to achieve the desired goal.

Radiofrequency (RF) Treatment

Radiofrequency is a type of energy which is measured in “frequency,” or wavelengths per second. Like any form of energy, RF has the capacity to produce heat which can be used to trigger collagen production in skin. Radiofrequency energy focuses on collagen in the dermis to achieve a firmer, smoother appearance.

IPL/RF Combination Treatments

A third class of skin tightening treatments combine intense pulsed light (IPL) with radiofrequency energy (RF) to heat deeper layers of skin and induce the natural healing response, which in turn triggers collagen production. The addition of IPL allows a provider to treat skin at multiple levels and can help focus the RF energy for more effective treatment without surgery. 

Using Procedure Skincare for Enhanced Results & Faster Healing


Although skin laxity is common with age, non-surgical skin tightening treatments can help stimulate elastin and collagen production for a healthier-looking, youthful appearance.

Expert Opinion: Prepping Skin For A Procedure

Dr. Alex Eshaghian

“Our patients love the ALASTIN Regenerating Skin Nectar. It enhances results and decreases recovery time. We have our patients use it twice daily starting two weeks before a treatment and continuing for two to four weeks thereafter. Our patients love the silky feel when applied to the skin. I personally used it on half of my face before and after a chemical peel and the side I used it on recovered faster and produced softer skin.”
