The skin changes are you get older. The dewy, firm skin you had in your twenties changes as you hit your late 30’s and beyond. Lower levels of collagen and elastin in the skin as you age change the volume and firmness of the skin. Wrinkles and lines form, and gravity takes its toll with sagging jowls and neck skin. There are non-surgical options to address aging skin that seems thinner and looser. At Arcadia Wellness Center, we offer effective skin tightening treatments at our clinic in Phoenix.

How Do Skin Tightening Treatments Work?

Our skin tightening treatments are performed using multi-polar radio frequency energy combined with pulsed electromagnetic fields. The handheld device delivers this energy to the treatment areas to heat the skin cells to a specific level to stimulate collagen and elastin production. Skin tightening treatments are not painful – it provides a warming sensation that many of our clients enjoy. The treatment takes about 15-20 minutes per area treated and there is no downtime or recovery needed after your session. The skin may be slightly flushed, but this dissipates in the next hour or two.

The effects of skin tightening take some time to become evident. The treatment stimulates more collagen production to “heal” the skin, which increases the volume and firmness. We recommend a series of treatments for our patients to achieve the best results. The skin continues to become tighter, plumper and more youthful over the following months after the treatments.

Are You a Good Candidate for Skin Tightening?

If you are in your 30’s or 40’s and have begun to see signs of your skin losing its elasticity, you may be a good candidate for skin tightening. Droopy skin under the chin, lines around the mouth or crepey skin on the décolletage are common issues when the skin loses elasticity. The most common areas treated with the skin tightening procedure are the midface, neck, under the chin, jowls and upper chest. Skin tightening treatments can also be used on the body to help smooth and tighten skin, which may reduce the appearance of cellulite.

You cannot stop the aging process, but you can combat and slow the loss of collagen in the skin. If you want to maintain firmer, more youthful skin, come see us at Arcadia Wellness Center. We have a wide arsenal of skin treatments that can help you maintain a more youthful appearance, including skin tightening treatments. Call our office in Phoenix to schedule a skin consultation.
