Aging, pregnancy, and weight loss can leave you with lax skin on your face and body. Marjon Monfared, MD, provides laser and radiofrequency devices to help firm and tighten this excess skin that may make you feel less than your best. She leads a team of expert technicians at Metropolitan Med Spa who can help you reach your skin-tightening goals. Men and women in Houston can call the office or book online to learn more.
Application of radiofrequency (RF) energy to areas of lax skin helps boost collagen production and reduce the appearance of lines and sagging skin. Collagen is a natural compound produced by your body to add structure and strength to your skin, but age, sun exposure, and environmental pollutants hasten its loss.
The RF energy heats your tissue layers beneath the surface of your skin to cause the cells to contract and tighten, creating long-term tightening results. Radiofrequency treatments are especially effective in reducing the appearance of loose skin and wrinkles around the face, neck, arms, and body.
Dr. Monfared creates a treatment plan for you that usually includes 6-12 treatments. Each session lasts about 30 minutes. Your skin appears more radiant following just one treatment, but you benefit most from a series of sessions. Your body needs a few weeks to build new collagen and reformulate existing collagen so your tighter, smoother skin is revealed.
Infrared laser light tightens skin by heating the collagen under your skin’s surface. The skin contracts, as a result, creating a more taut appearance. Loose skin around the face, neck, arms, and body benefit from laser treatments. Like RF treatments, laser skin tightening treatments work best when a series of treatments are used.
With skin tightening radiofrequency and laser treatments, you notice an improvement in skin strength, texture, and tone. You appear rejuvenated and look “different,” but not as if you’ve had work done.
No, you don’t need to schedule any downtime following skin-tightening treatments. You may have slight redness following a session, but this subsides quickly – usually within a few hours. Feel free to return to work or other daily tasks following skin-tightening sessions.
