Skin Tightening Q&A

What is nonsurgical skin tightening?

Skin tightening treatments at Wistl Skin use nonsurgical methods to make your skin tighter and younger-looking by stimulating new cell growth. The treatments available can tighten the skin on your face, neck, or body. Skin tightening uses targeted energy to stimulate collagen and elastin production and improve your skin’s texture and tone over time.

What are the benefits of skin tightening?

Skin tightening treatments at Wistl Skin use safe, FDA-approved technologies to create skin that is:

  • Smoother
  • Tighter
  • Less wrinkled
  • Firmer
  • Lifted
  • Youthful
  • Revitalized
  • Even-toned

Some skin tightening solutions also smooth cellulite, improving body contours with minimal to no downtime. There’s no surgery, scarring, or risk of severe complications. The results you experience are long-lasting.

Is nonsurgical skin tightening right for me?

An aesthetic specialist at Wistl Skin determines if you’re a candidate for skin tightening after discussing your medical history, beauty goals, and preferences. They also examine your skin before customizing a personalized skin-tightening treatment plan. 

What should I expect during skin tightening?

What you can expect during nonsurgical skin tightening at Wistl Skin depends on which specific treatment you undergo. 

Wistl Skin offers ultrasound skin tightening, radiofrequency treatments, intense pulse light (IPL) therapy, microneedling (using tiny needles to stimulate new cell growth), and combinations of treatments to ensure superior results. 

Your specialist first cleans the treatment area and numbs it if necessary. They apply microneedles or ultrasound, radiofrequency, or light energy to the affected areas to painlessly stimulate cell regeneration and healing while you relax. They may also apply a healing serum to the treated skin.

Each treatment session can last 30-90 minutes, but every patient has unique needs. 

What happens after skin tightening treatments?

After skin tightening at Wistl Skin, you can expect temporary tenderness, redness, and swelling. Don’t hesitate to ice the treatment area to reduce swelling and enhance comfort. Keep the treated areas clean, protect your skin from the sun, and apply topical products to treated skin if asked to. 

Over the next few weeks and months, you can expect tighter, younger-looking, smoother, lifted skin with a healthy glow. Your specialist may recommend a series of skin tightening treatments to achieve exceptional results. While individualized results vary, tighter skin often lasts about a year.
