Skin Tightening Q&A

What is skin tightening?

Skin tightening is a non-surgical treatment that makes your skin firmer and more elastic. Over time, your skin loosens as it loses collagen and elastin, two proteins that give it a natural structure. This process accelerates due to ultraviolet light exposure, smoking, dehydration, genetics, and other factors. 

With skin tightening, you can reduce some of the cosmetic effects that aging has on your skin, including the appearance of stretch marks and some scars.

While no surgical or non-surgical treatment can stop aging altogether, skin-tightening treatments can put the process on pause in a sense. For some time after your skin-tightening treatment, you’ll enjoy a more youthful appearance with fewer wrinkles and less sagging skin. 

At Aftrglo Beauty and Wellness, Dr. Lo uses Viora® skin-tightening lasers. During your consultation, she examines your skin and determines which laser treatment will work best for your goals. 

Which areas can I target with skin tightening?

Using Viora laser skin tightening, you can target multiple areas of the face and body or individual areas. Dr. Lo plans your treatment according to your specific goals and areas of concern. Common areas and features to target include:

  • Jowls and lower face
  • Forehead
  • Areas around the eyes
  • Lips
  • Neck
  • Arms
  • Chest
  • Thighs
  • Hands

Just a few easy sessions with Viora lasers can eliminate wrinkles in these areas and even provide a subtle lifting effect. non-surgical skin tightening doesn't lend as dramatic results as anti-aging surgery, but the results look more natural and the recovery is much shorter and less complex. 

How long do the results of skin tightening last?

The duration of your skin-tightening results relies on your ability to care for your skin. If you need tips on excellent skin care, Dr. Lo is happy to provide you with suggestions at Aftrglo Beauty and Wellness. Otherwise, you can get long-term results from skin tightening by:

  • Wearing sunscreen every day
  • Avoiding direct sunlight or other ultraviolet light sources
  • Maintaining a good skin care routine
  • Getting at least 7-8 hours of sleep each night
  • Staying hydrated
  • Using a moisturizer
  • Avoiding smoking
  • Eating a nutrient-rich diet

For many Viora laser treatments, Dr. Lo recommends getting follow-up sessions once every three to six months so you can maintain your tighter skin. She might advise a different interval depending on how your skin responds to the treatments. 

Aftrglo Beauty and Wellness offers professional-grade skin care products by SkinBetter® and Image® skin care that you can use to keep your skin healthy and well-nourished after a skin-tightening treatment.
