Skin Tightening Q&A

What is skin tightening?


Skin tightening procedures reduce wrinkles and fine lines by causing your skin to constrict. They boost production of vital proteins like collagen and elastin, which help your skin maintain its tight and firm structure. You lose these proteins as you grow older, which is largely responsible for your sagging and wrinkles. 

Your skin also ages because of:

  • Sun exposure

  • Less oil production

  • Fat cell shrinkage

  • Less water retention

The team at Tourmaline Skin Care & Laser uses lasers to tighten your skin. While you might need multiple sessions to meet your goals, each session takes only 30 minutes and you don’t need to account for any downtime afterward. In fact, you can safely go back to work or resume your regular activities right away. 


Which areas can I treat with skin tightening?


There is no limit to the areas you can treat with skin tightening, but there are areas where the skin tends to get particularly loose. The team at Tourmaline Skin Care & Laser helps you decide which parts of your face and body to tighten with laser skin tightening, with some of the most commonly targeted areas being: 

  • Abdomen

  • Jawline

  • Neck

  • Cheeks

  • Upper arms

You might feel some warmth on your skin as the laser works deep in the underlying layers, but the laser doesn’t harm the surface of your skin. You get the best results from the treatment if you have mild to moderate sagging and are between the ages of 30 and 65. 


Are my skin tightening results permanent?


The results of skin tightening can last for months or even years* as long as you’re careful about protecting your skin from the sun, staying hydrated, and generally maintaining your health. This is because laser treatments for skin tightening don’t and can’t stop the aging process entirely. 


The processes that aged your skin in the first place continue, so you’ll eventually see some of your sagging and wrinkles return. However, you may visit Tourmaline Skin Care & Laser for additional skin tightening treatments if you want to maintain your desired look. 


The team can also recommend skincare products and other anti-aging treatments to help you achieve more younger-looking skin.
