What is skin tightening?

Skin tightening treatments use leading-edge technologies to help your skin improve itself from within. The skin tightening treatments at Vein Specialists Institute are nonsurgical and incision-free, with little to no downtime needed.

How does skin tightening work?

Vein Specialists Institute offers innovative skin tightening treatments in their Palm Desert and La Quinta offices. These procedures use an array of leading-edge treatment technologies, including:

  • Radiofrequency energy (RF)
  • Laser light
  • Intense pulsed light (IPL)
  • Microneedling

Some technologies combine treatment approaches to optimize your results. With all of these skin tightening treatments, the goal is collagen and elastin remodeling.

Collagen and elastin are natural substances that provide skin tightness and elasticity. You produce less collagen and elastin as you age, leading to fine lines, folds, loose skin, and a general lack of skin elasticity and firmness.

Skin tightening treatments deliver laser, radiofrequency energy, or IPL to the dermis, the deeper layers of skin where you create collagen and elastin. The treatments prompt new collagen and elastin growth to help restore your skin.

In addition, some skin tightening treatments work on the surface layer of the skin to help clear age spots and other textural irregularities.

When might I need skin tightening?

You might need skin tightening if you have signs of aging, such as:

  • Nasolabial folds (smile lines)
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Crepey-looking skin
  • Mild-to-moderate facial sagging

Skin tightening treatments offer tightening and mild lifting, especially in the middle and lower parts of the face. So, if you look older than you’d prefer, skin tightening could be ideal for you. You can also combine it with other treatments, like body contouring, to get both a face and body refresh.

When will I see the results of skin tightening treatments?

Some skin tightening treatments offer an immediate, temporary reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, with more long-lasting results after multiple treatment sessions.

Every skin tightening treatment has different technology and works in its own unique way, so the Vein Specialists Institute team can help you decide which one is best for you based on your skin issues and your treatment goals.
