Skin Tightening

What is skin tightening?

 

Skin tightening is a way to revive your face after years of wrinkle accumulation. As you age, your skin loses collagen and elastin. Two structural proteins that keep it firm, strong, and tight. Areas like your face that have a lot of sun exposure accumulate wrinkles more rapidly than other parts of your body. Furthermore, you make repeated movements with your face resulting in the appearance of fine lines like:

  • Lip lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Forehead lines
  • Frown lines

Regardless of your skin type, skin tightening treatments allow you to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines like these for a more youthful look. At VIP Laser Eye Center, the team can evaluate your wrinkles and skin laxity to help you decide if you need skin tightening. 

How does skin tightening work?

At VIP Laser Eye Center, the team uses TempSure™ Envi for skin tightening, an advanced treatment by industry-leader Cynosure®. The TempSure handpiece delivers gentle radiofrequency energy into your skin, which heats your tissues and causes them to contract. Furthermore, the heat causes your skin to produce new collagen and elastin to create long-lasting skin tightening and firming results.

The team will help you book a series of initial treatments to kick-start your collagen and elastin growth, after which regular maintenance treatments is recommended as your skin continues to show the signs of aging. The treatment is completely noninvasive and requires no downtime whatsoever. 

What should I expect during my skin tightening treatment?

 

Your appointment at VIP Laser Eye Center for skin tightening takes less than an hour. You can lay back and relax as the team performs your treatment. You don’t need any anesthesia or numbing cream because the treatment is very comfortable. You’ll feel the warmth from the device as it heats your tissues in the areas you want to target.

After your skin tightening treatment, you might notice some slight redness on your skin - this should go away very quickly. You can go back to work right after your appointment! Your skin might feel a bit tighter immediately, and the results improve with time as new collagen and elastin develop. Many people note that their skin looks brighter, smoother, and less wrinkled than before they started treatment with TempSure Envi.  Please take a closer look at our gallery of elated patients after their treatments.
