How does skin tightening work?

Typically skin tightening works by promoting the natural healing process of your skin to tighten or reverse some visible signs of aging or sun damage on your skin. You can also use skin tightening treatment to smoothen and tighten your skin in a particular area. The health care provider uses the skin tightening device to deliver radiofrequency energy or concentrated laser waves to irregular skin. When using laser treatment, energy waves generated are used to remove the outer layer of your skin and heat the underlying skin, thus stimulating the growth of new and healthy skin cells and collagen fibers. Therefore new smoother, healthier, and tighter skin forms that become your treated area heals.

The development of collagen can also be stimulated by using Potenza micro-needling through the introduction of wounds on your skin. Generally, the body perceives them as injuries that require healing even though they are invisible to the eye. Follow-up treatments might be needed when using skin tightening treatments to attain the best results. Most of these treatments usually last for fifteen minutes to one hour, but your provider might suggest treatments at weekly or monthly intervals until the desired results are attained.
