Fat Reduction and Tightening
Who is a good candidate for skin tightening?
Human skin is our largest organ, but it is also prone to sagging and loosening over time. No one is immune to this. At Dr. Smith’s, our skin tightening treatments are great for just about anyone who is looking for cosmetic improvements and skin tightening on their face and across their body. It is helpful for patients to still have good elasticity in their skin, as this enables the skin to tighten down when the new collagen is delivered. Also, this is not meant to be a fat reduction procedure across large areas.
What areas can be treated with skin tightening?
At Dr. Smith’s, we primarily use the Profound System to tighten skin and lose inches in typical problems areas: neck/jowls, arms, décolletage, bra strap area, abdomen, male chest, thighs, hips, buttocks, and the knees.
How long will my skin tightening results last?
Skin tightening results last for around two years. Eventually the collagen production again begins to wane (as you age your body decreases collagen production by one additional percent every year after your 20th birthday) and your skin will again show more laxity. However, another Profound treatment will tighten things back up.
Are there any risks with skin tightening treatments?
With Profound skin tightening, there aren’t many side effects beyond some slight short-term tenderness and minimal bruising in the treatment areas, which typically subsides in 4-6 days.
Are skin tightening treatments safe?
Our Profound skin tightening treatment combines microneedling and radiofrequency treatments, both of which are performed every day as separate procedures. Both treatments are safe with little to no risk.
Is there any downtime after skin tightening treatment?
We advises our patients to take it easy for the first day after their Profound skin tightening treatment. Besides that, patients should also expect to wash the affected areas of your face and neck 3 to 5 times a day for the first few days after your Profound treatment.
