Skin Tightening Q & A

How does skin tightening work?

At Hackettstown Medical Primary Care Partners Affiliate, Dr. Ingrassia-Squiers and Denise perform tightening treatments with TempSure® Envi™, a device that tightens your skin by softly heating it and the underlying tissues. To do this, radiofrequency waves are delivered throughout your tissues in a specified treatment area for about 45-60 minutes. Since the treatment is quick and doesn’t require downtime, you can easily book it during your lunch break and return to work as soon as it’s finished.

When your tissues heat up, they begin to rebuild themselves by producing collagen and elastin fibers. While collagen helps restore the structure and firmness to your skin, elastin is the key protein that makes it tight. Together, they reduce wrinkles and give similar results like a mild face-lift without the potential complications and long recovery time of face-lift surgery.

Which areas can I target with skin tightening treatments?

Most people prefer to get skin tightening treatments on areas of skin that are often exposed and visible to others. These areas also tend to see the most sun, so they accumulate more laxity than skin under your clothes.

You can get skin tightening treatments almost anywhere, but the most common areas are your:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Chin
  • Chest

Dr. Ingrassia-Squiers and Denise can help you decide which sections of your own body are treatable with skin tightening treatments and how many sessions it will take.

Is skin tightening safe for everyone?

Nonsurgical skin tightening treatments are safe regardless of your skin type or tone. Even if you’ve recently spent some time in the sun and have a burn or tan, you can get safe, successful skin tightening treatments and your results won’t suffer.

Dr. Ingrassia-Squiers and Denise might help you review other options if you’re pregnant or if your wrinkles are too severe. Skin tightening treatments without surgery work best on mild or moderate wrinkles and folds.

How long does it take to see the results of my skin tightening treatment?

Following your skin tightening procedure, your skin feels tighter immediately. As the tissues and fibers continue to regenerate, you’ll see your results improve even more for several weeks following the procedure.

Your skin’s natural aging process doesn’t stop after a skin tightening procedure, so you might need to return for more treatments as time goes on. Dr. Ingrassia-Squiers and Denise might recommend a series of treatments initially depending on the severity of your wrinkles.

If your skin’s laxity is resulting in defined wrinkles or cellulite, request a skin tightening consultation by phone or online at Hackettstown Medical Primary Care Partners Affiliate today.
