What is Skin Tightening?
Skin tightening is a rejuvenation technique that uses heat energy to stimulate collagen production in the skin while contracting skin tissue for impressive skin tightening results. The initial heating component contracts the skin for more immediate results, while collagen continues to support skin tightening for months after the treatment is complete. With skin tightening treatments, patients can address loose skin, wrinkles, and small areas of stubborn fat to achieve a sculpted physique. At Suite Six Medical Aesthetics, we offer ThermiTight® and LipoLife for skin tightening.
How Much Does Skin Tightening Treatment Cost in Boston, MA?
The cost of your skin tightening treatment at Suite Six Medical Aesthetics can vary depending on the extent of treatment necessary to deliver your desired results. During your initial consultation, we will assess your treatment goals in order to develop an individualized treatment plan. Once we determine the treatment approach that is best for you, we will be able to provide you with the exact cost of your treatment. We accept traditional payment methods and offer financing through CareCredit® for your convenience.
How is Skin Tightening Treatment Performed?
The skin tightening treatment you receive will depend on the technique used. ThermiTight® delivers radiofrequency energy to the skin to cause immediate skin tightening and long-lasting collagen production. During treatment, a small handpiece is used to insert a metal rod into the skin, which will emit radiofrequency energy to the surrounding skin tissue. LipoLife, on the other hand, is a combination of skin tightening and liposuction. LipoLife uses a form of laser-assisted liposuction to make the liposuction process safer, easier, and more effective. In addition to removing unwanted body fat, the laser component provides dramatic skin tightening effects thanks to an increase in collagen production. As such, this treatment may be more suitable for patients who would like to eliminate stubborn body fat in addition to their skin tightening treatment.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from My Skin Resurfacing Treatment?
After a skin tightening treatment, patients may notice subtle results before they leave their appointment. This is due to the instant contracting response that the skin has to heat energy. Over the following weeks, as collagen is produced and takes effect in the body, patients will notice gradual improvements in skin laxity. With both treatment techniques, one treatment is typically sufficient for achieving optimal results.
Is There Downtime After Skin Tightening Treatment?
Due to the minimally invasive nature of these skin tightening techniques, patients can enjoy a much lesser downtime than they could if they received a more aggressive skin tightening treatment. For both treatments, patients may experience mild swelling, bruising, or soreness in the treatment areas. However, these effects typically fade within a few weeks, and patients are usually able to resume work and other normal activities within a week. We may recommend that patients take additional time off of activities that require strenuous activity, such as exercise.
