Skin Tightening in Williamsville, IL

Skin Tightening Procedure

When you age, your body slowly stops producing elastin and collagen. This gives way to wrinkles and sagging skin. Although aging is natural, it's not easy to embrace, especially as we watch our skin lose its firm, elastic quality. Tightening your skin is one way to slow the signs of aging.

What Is the Skin Tightening Procedure?

The skin tightening treatment delivers thermal energy in order to heat specific areas underneath the top layer of your skin. This heat stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. In so doing, your skin gains a firmer, more elastic look.

Our lead clinician, Courtney Wilbern, uses the Scarlet SRF procedure to tighten skin. This procedure is FDA approved and uses specialized microneedles to deliver radiofrequency energy beneath your skin. The targeted energy stimulates the production of both collagen and elastin. The microneedling procedure can treat deep layers of your skin.

If you have been researching "skin tightening near me," you'll discover that the benefits of tightening your skin are many. It improves the signs of aging and tightens the skin around the jaw and cheekbones. There is virtually no downtime, and we can safely treat all skin types. The procedure also improves the texture and tone of your skin.

Some people start to see the effects of sagging skin earlier than others, so there is no set age when people should consider this procedure. However, if you're in good health but you are starting to have signs of mild to moderate sagging in your skin, Aesthetics ~ Wellness at Ophthalmology Center of Illinois can help.

Who Qualifies for the Skin Tightening Procedure?

If your skin is starting to sag around your jaw, neck, and your cheekbones, you should consider getting your skin tightened. The procedure only takes 60 to 90 minutes, and it is a non-surgical procedure. Not everyone wants a surgical facelift operation, so having your skin tightened is a great alternative.

People who have smoked for many years may also start to see less elasticity and collagen in their skin. Nicotine causes the vessels in your blood to narrow, reducing the flow of oxygen and nutrients. What's more, the chemicals in nicotine damage structures that your skin needs to produce elastin and collagen.

Other good candidates are those who have had a lot of sun exposure. Our outer skin layer contains melanin, which helps to protect your skin against the sun's UV rays. When you have too much sun exposure, the sun slowly burns through this layer, reducing the elasticity of your skin.

Our lead clinician, Courtney Wilbern, can tighten mildly to moderately sagging skin. If you have sagging skin that is advanced or you have skin that hangs due to extreme weight loss, however, tightening your skin won't be effective.
