about Nonsurgical Skin Tightening
When we are born, our skin has an ample supply of natural nutrients that keeps our skin taut, smooth, and soft. However, as we age, this natural supply of nutrients becomes depleted and the skin will slowly begin to lose its firmness, resulting in wrinkles and drooping skin. If you want to improve the tautness and general health of your skin without surgery, consider nonsurgical skin tightening at Refresh Life Wellness in Antioch, TN. With state-of-the-art Accent Prime™ technology, nonsurgical skin tightening encourages the production of collagen and elastin in the areas treated so you can have firmer, healthier skin. During your initial consultation, seasoned family practitioner Dr. Kimberly Collins will be happy to offer nonsurgical skin tightening to patients desiring firmer skin without the recovery time and discomfort of a lift surgery. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Collins in Antioch, TN to discover more about nonsurgical skin tightening.
Candidates for nonsurgical skin tightening
Nonsurgical skin tightening can be an option if you do not want to undergo a surgical procedure. This treatment may be done on most areas of the face and body, including the neck, abs, upper arms, and thighs. Patients who may benefit from this procedure:
- Are in good overall health
- Are at or near a stable weight
- Have mild to medium skin laxity
- Have signs of aging on their skin
- Want to subtly change the firmness and aesthetics of their skin
Nonsurgical Skin Tightening technique
To start the procedure, the areas to be treated will be cleaned to eliminate any makeup, dirt, or oil. After your skin is prepared, the Accent Prime technology will be evenly passed over the skin multiple times for an efficient session. The heat prompts the body’s natural healing properties to start producing elastin and collagen, which firms and tightens the skin. The treatment can take about 30 – 90 minutes, depending on the size and number of areas treated. After the session is complete, you'll be allowed to leave and get back to your regular routine.
After Your treatment
Following your nonsurgical skin tightening session, the treated skin may be slightly red or tingling. This is normal and usually dissipates by the following day. During your initial consultation, Dr. Collins will talk about the best ways to care for your skin at home after your session, such as keeping the skin protected and moisturized from the sun. Most patients will not see visible results right after their procedure. Since the elastin and collagen stimulation and growth is a slow process, you should expect to see the final results of the treatment about 2 – 6 months after your session. However, these results are long lasting and enhance the overall health of your skin. You may want several sessions to achieve your desired outcome. During your initial consultation, Dr. Collins will help you develop your unique treatment plan based on your needs and cosmetic goals.
