Skin Tightening Q & A

What is skin tightening?

Skin tightening procedures stimulate new collagen and elastin proteins within your skin to make it tighter and firmer without surgery. Collagen is a protein that maintains your skin’s firmness while elastin makes it tight and stretchy. You lose both of these proteins with age, which leads to wrinkles and lines that make you look older. 

You can use skin tightening procedures from Dr. Azar and the team to minimize:

  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Stretch marks
  • Loose or sagging skin

During a consultation at Angela Azar, MD, you can pinpoint the areas you want to target with skin tightening. Many people wish to treat their faces to minimize common loose skin-related features like nasolabial folds and jowls, but you can also treat your neck, chest area, and other body parts with evidence of aging. 

How does skin tightening work?

Angela Azar, MD, offers two noninvasive skin tightening procedures to address loose, sagging, and wrinkled skin. Based on your initial consultation, Dr. Azar and the team might recommend:

Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling

Microneedling procedures make tiny holes in your skin using fine needles to stimulate a healing response. With the addition of gentle RF energy, the improvements go deeper into your skin for a more pronounced result. 

Laser skin tightening

Another option for noninvasive skin tightening uses a laser, which is a focused beam of light. The laser doesn’t have to touch your skin to warm your tissues and stimulate the growth of new collagen and elastin fibers. 

How can I maintain the results of skin tightening?

Unfortunately, you cannot stop the aging process that happens naturally within your skin over time. Aging causes the continuous loss of collagen and elastin eventually after your skin tightening procedures. However, there are steps you can take to make sure you enjoy your skin tightening results for as long as possible.

Dr. Azar and the team advise you to:

  • Protect your skin from the sun
  • Avoid artificial ultraviolet (UV) light sources like tanning beds
  • Get plenty of exercise
  • Eat healthy foods
  • Develop a personalized skin care routine
  • Stay hydrated

You can also get touch-up skin tightening treatments in the future.
