Skin Tightening Orange County
Conveniently located to serve Orange County
There are many ways to achieve skin tightening. Most are based on heat treatments that translate to collagen stimulation and subsequent connective tissue response of tightening. At Platinum Medical Spa, we use Radiofrequency in several different forms to achieve this. We have a bipolar head for superficial skin tightening and a unipolar head for deeper tightening.
As part of our Radiofrequency tools, we have pixel hand pieces which can induce tightening also through ablative and non-ablative methods. Pixel allows fractional treatment, which results in faster healing and less downtime.
Along with Radiofrequency treatments, we also have our CO2 laser which is fractional ablation which gives dramatic results! Please see our CO2 Laser Resurfacing page to learn more about laser skin resurfacing.
Please also note that non ablative skin tightening typically will give you only temporary results of about 9 months or so. Please discuss with MD at your complimentary consultation—schedule here.
What Is Skin Tightening?
Skin tightening is a non-surgical option for people who want to correct sagging skin caused by aging, dramatic weight loss, and pregnancy.
As we age, our skin’s connective tissues and cells wear down for two reasons: reduced collagen production and environmental factors like pollution, stress, and muscle movement.
Collagen is the protein responsible for holding the cells together in the skin, providing elasticity and structure. With less collagen in the skin, it takes longer for new cells to be created and damaged cells to be restored. This is visible in the form of wrinkles and loose skin.
Our radiofrequency treatment options utilize heat therapy to increase natural collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin. This tightens skin and restores skin health.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Skin tightening candidates must not have a pacemaker, internal defibrillator, or any active implanted device. The RF energy can damage how these devices function. Individuals with a history of cold sores may also not be considered for a skin tightening treatment.
How to Prepare for a Skin Tightening Treatment
Before your skin tightening treatment, you will need to arrange a consultation. During this consultation, your skin will be examined by a skincare professional, and the two of you will discuss your treatment goals. Your skincare professional will recommend the best option for skin tightening, and a date will be set for the session.
Two weeks before the treatment, avoid any skin peeling or laser procedure to prevent further skin damage. On the day of your appointment, refrain from wearing makeup, lotion, or any other skincare product on the selected area for the skin tightening session.
