Skin Tightening Q & A

What is skin tightening?

Dr. Vu has numerous skin tightening technologies for your face, neck, arms, and other areas of the body to restore the firmness and appearance of your skin.

Her non-surgical options use energy to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin in the deepest layers of your skin. They can improve the overall tone and texture of your skin in many areas of your body, including your face, neck, and arms.

What are the benefits of skin tightening?

Skin tightening can improve your skin’s firmness and tone, which men and women alike lose as they age. Benefits of non-surgical skin tightening procedures include:

  • Low risk of side effects
  • No scarring
  • Fast treatment times with no recovery
  • Long-lasting results

What skin tightening options are available?

Dr. Vu offers several FDA-cleared skin tightening treatments including:

  • Ultrasound treatments: heats skin to increase collagen production, firming loose skin
  • Radiofrequency (FR) treatments: uses radiofrequency energy to heat the skin and stimulate collagen production for a smoother, firmer appearance
  • Intense pulsed light/radiofrequency (IPL/RF) combination: uses intense pulsed light with radiofrequency energy to heat deep layers of the skin to trigger collagen production

With the proper procedure, you can see immediate improvements in your skin’s tone and texture. Nevertheless, some treatments may require multiple visits to achieve desired results.

Dr. Vu discusses your cosmetic goals for firming your skin with you so she can recommend the right skin tightening treatment. Skin tightening procedures aren’t painful -- topical anesthetics are optional -- and she performs the procedure in a comfortable office environment.

Am I a good candidate for skin tightening treatments?

You’re a candidate for skin tightening if you’re in good health and between the ages of 30-60. Generally speaking, non-surgical skin tightening treatments typically produce superb results for a variety of skin types. Those who are dissatisfied with the appearance of loose, sagging skin do exceptionally well with non-surgical options.

Patients taking particular medications or who have certain medical conditions may not be eligible for skin tightening treatments. Additionally, patients with excess skin or areas of the body needing a dramatic lift may achieve better results with surgical options.

Dr. Vu discusses your medical history before determining your treatment plan to achieve optimum results.
