With age, the body’s normal production of collagen and elastin begin to decline. This results in wrinkly, loose and saggy skin. Advances in science, medicine and technology have spawned the development of several skin tightening treatments which promise tighter, firmer and younger-looking skin. The medical professionals at Illume Aesthetics are highly skilled in several different modalities that can tighten the skin and give you a glowing complexion.

How long does it take for skin to tighten?

The time it takes for skin to tighten depends on the type of treatment used, the condition of the skin being treated, and the area of the body being treated. Treatments that stimulate neocollagenesis and elastin oogenesis produce results gradually and can be seen over the course of a few months. With more intensive treatments like laser resurfacing, which is one of the most effective procedures for tightening loose skin, the procedure requires some downtime. You will need to stay home for 5 to 7 days in order for the skin to fully recover. Laser resurfacing also provides the quickest results; after healing, tighter skin and fewer wrinkles will be visible within two weeks.

Is skin tightening permanent?

Due to the natural aging process of the body, the results of skin tightening are not permanent and gradually fade as this process continues. However, many treatments can provide long term results, and with follow-up sessions spaced out every few months, results can be maintained for years.

Who is a good candidate for skin tightening?

Many people can safely receive a skin-tightening procedure and are most likely to get the best results if they:

  • Are at a healthy weight and maintain a healthy weight
  • Eat a healthy diet
  • Do not smoke and avoid exposure to toxins
  • Drink little alcohol
  • Protect their skin from the sun
  • Have a small amount of sagging skin

After a skin-tightening procedure, one can expect:

Results — Tend to appear gradually, so they appear more natural

Downtime — Little or none

Skin Types Treated — Safe for people of all skin colors

Body-wide use: Can tighten skin virtually anywhere on the body
