The  Skin Tightening treatment is FDA approved to tighten loose, lax skin. Skin tightening technology is the pioneer in radio frequency devices, and has been a leader of the skin tightening industry for years.

Unlike painful surgical skin tightening procedures, such as neck and face lifts, a treatment is non-invasive and does not require a lengthy recovery period. Most  Skin Tightening treatments take less than an 30 minutes to complete and the long lasting results are truly amazing.

Skin Tightening is a non-invasive, anti-aging solution for wrinkles, fine lines, sagging skin, and uneven skin tone. Just one skin tightening treatment will help your skin look healthier, smoother, and years younger.

We here at SILK Medspa see that each person has their own unique beauty. And it’s our goal to help bring out and enhance this beauty using state-of-the-art technology.

Attain firmer, fitter looking skin with Silk Medspa leading skin tightening treatments.
Skin Tightening cutting-edge med-aesthetic systems offer complete solutions to the many seeking tighter, younger looking skin without undergoing surgery.  Progressive technologies are helping patients defy time by reducing and, in many cases, eliminating the associated signs of aging, including loose or sagging skin, folds, creases and wrinkles, in a non-invasive and effective way.

The skin tightening treatments apply a combination of three of advanced technologies, including Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), Radio Frequency (RF)* and Infrared (IR) technologies. These powerful skin-tightening machines and lasers achieve results in just a few relatively short pain-free treatment sessions.

The technical processes these technologies perform encourage the removal of damaged skin cells and fibers and stimulate the production of new, healthy collagen fibers beneath the surface, which fill in lax, sagging or wrinkled skin. The new collagen, which results in the tightened skin, can last years, making the impressive results of these treatments long-lasting, cost-effective and very popular.

Frequently Asked Questions

 

What is  Skin Tightening?

Skin tightening uses radio frequency technology to heat the water molecules in your skin. This triggers your body’s natural production of collagen and elastin, resulting in firmer, smoother, younger looking skin.


What are typical  Skin Tightening results?

Our clients see about a 10% improvement almost immediately following their treatment. Your skin will continue to tighten and smooth out over the next three to six months.


Am I a good candidate for Skin Tightening?

Anyone with loose, lax skin will benefit greatly with Skin Tightening. If your skin is showing signs of aging skin tightening can make you appear years younger after just one treatment. Mothers who experience loose, lax skin after being pregnant can see incredible improvement after one session as well as long they stopped nursing.


What areas can  Skin Tightening treat?
