Skin Tightening Q & A

23 Sandstone Body and Mind Spa

Who is a good candidate for skin tightening?

Anyone who’s tired of the appearance of loose, sagging skin could benefit from skin tightening techniques. Dr. McKee and licensed aestheticians at the spa use a variety of means to bring you the best results for your skin. Some of the most common skin tightening procedures include:

  • Light chemical peels
  • Microdermabrasion
  • Rejuvapen™ microneedling
  • Exilis Elite™ radiofrequency
  • Ultrasound technology
  • Micro-current treatments
  • Facials (enhanced product applications)
  • Zimmer ZWaveⓒ shock wave treatments

How does skin tightening work?

Skin tightening procedures work in a variety of ways, but most share a common feature: They stimulate your body’s natural production of collagen and elastin, improving your skin’s texture and health, making it smoother and tighter.

Chemical peels and microdermabrasion techniques deeply exfoliate your skin, allowing it to renew itself and restore a more youthful appearance, with firmer, tighter skin.

Microneedling with the Rejuvapen creates micro-trauma to your skin, stimulating its natural healing process. The temporary microchannels also enhance deep penetration of serums applied to your skin, encouraging production of collagen and elastin as your skin heals.

Using radiofrequency, the Exilis Elite improves your skin at the cellular level, strengthening and tightening your skin. This device has a special handpiece to tighten skin under your chin, lower face, and around your eyes, eliminating jowls and under eye bags.

The Zimmer ZWave uses pulsed shocks to stimulate your lymphatics and break down fibrous bands that compress soft tissues and cause uneven surface textures. Doing so improves the appearance of cellulite, enhances the production of collagen, and improves skin elasticity.

What should you expect after a skin tightening treatment?

Depending on your skin tightening treatment, you can expect mild to no side effects from the procedure. Some, such as chemical peels, microneedling, and microdermabrasion, may cause irritation, redness, and peeling.

Other treatments may cause temporary:

  • Redness
  • Bruising
  • Swelling

Most symptoms are mild and cause minimal discomfort. Side effects tend to disappear within 24-48 hours.

What areas can skin tightening be used on?

Dr. McKee -- and aestheticians under her supervision -- can use most skin tightening techniques in a variety of areas, including on or around your:

  • Eyes
  • Mouth
  • Chin
  • Jaw line
  • Chest
  • Arms
  • Legs
  • Knees

  • Buttocks
  • Abdomen
