Skin Tightening Q&A

What is skin tightening?

Skin tightening at Good to Great: Medical Cosmetic Solutions is a noninvasive cosmetic solution that lifts and tightens your skin to restore a more youthful look. We perform skin tightening treatments with Ultherapy.

Ultherapy is the only FDA-approved noninvasive treatment for lifting the skin on the neck, chin, and brow. Ultherapy also improves lines and wrinkles on the décolletage (woman’s low neckline). 

How does skin tightening work?

With Ultherapy, your skin tightening treatments work by stimulating the production of collagen in the deep layers of your skin. 

Collagen is a structural protein responsible for your youthful skin’s strength and elasticity. As you get older, collagen production in your skin slows down, making it thinner, looser, and more vulnerable to lines, wrinkles, and sagging. 

Ultherapy delivers focused ultrasound energy to the same foundational layer of your skin typically addressed in a surgical facelift, without damaging the surface layer. The energy stimulates the production of collagen, which tightens and lifts your skin to produce the desired effects. 

What can I expect during skin tightening?

Good to Great: Medical Cosmetic Solutions performs your skin tightening treatment at the office. We develop your personalized skin tightening treatment plan at your initial consultation so you know what to expect. 

For the face and neck, skin tightening treatments take 60-90 minutes, and for the décolletage, 30 minutes. 

You may feel a hot or tingling sensation as the ultrasound energy from the Ultherapy handpiece enters the deep layers of your skin to stimulate activity. Comfort levels vary, and we adjust your treatment as needed to minimize pain.

You can experience some redness and flushing after your skin tightening treatment, but these side effects disappear within a few hours. There’s no downtime after your session. 

How long does it take to see results from skin tightening?

You may notice a tightening of your skin immediately after Ultherapy treatment. However, the production of new collagen takes time, and it may take up to three months until you see the final results of your session, which lasts up to a year.

You only need one Ultherapy session to get the desired skin tightening effects. However, repeating the treatment annually may help maintain your youthful look. 

Skin tightening treatments at Good to Great: Medical Cosmetic Solutions restore your youthful look without surgery or downtime. To schedule an appointment, call the office or book online today.
