How to Tell if You Are a Good Candidate for Skin Tightening

They say age is just a number. Don’t you wish your skin would just get the memo? Sagging skin is one of the first signs of aging and could be making you look much older than you feel. 

At Love Your Body Medical Spa in Las Vegas, Nevada, we want your skin to show off the youthful energy you have inside. That's why we offer advanced cosmetic treatments, including skin tightening

Here, Dr. Divina Averilla takes a closer look at who’s a candidate, so you can start taking steps toward a younger-looking you. 

Why is my skin sagging?

Have you looked in the mirror lately and noticed that the skin around your face, arms, and tummy has started to droop? Unfortunately, this frustrating problem can stem from a variety of factors. One of the most common is aging. 

Over time, your body loses its stores of elastin and collagen. These two proteins are essential to your skin’s shape, elasticity, and firmness. As you lose elastin and collagen, your skin gradually starts to sag. 

Other common causes of sagging skin include:

You might think that surgery is the only way to correct sagging skin, but there are other, noninvasive ways to restore your skin, including skin tightening treatments. 

At Love Your Body Medical Spa, we use the Reaction™ by Viora CORE™ technology system to deliver powerful radiofrequency (RF) waves into the deepest layers of your skin to revive collagen and elastin production, stimulate circulation, and restore fullness to your features. 

Before we begin your treatment, we clean the treatment area. Then, we carefully move the handheld device over your skin as the RF waves work to tighten your skin. Most of our patients report feeling a gentle warming sensation during their session.

From start to finish, your treatment takes 30-60 minutes, depending on the location, size, and condition of the treatment area. What’s best is that results show up almost immediately, with the optimal results developing after you’ve had multiple sessions. 

Am I a candidate for skin tightening?

Does skin tightening sound too good to be true? These treatments are incredibly versatile and are an option for virtually all of our patients, but there are some factors we take into consideration before recommending them. 

The ideal candidate has moderate skin elasticity issues, a stable body weight, and doesn’t have any preexisting skin conditions, such as hyperpigmentation, sunburns, or eczema.

How can I maximize my skin tightening treatments?

The results of skin tightening can be life-changing. If you want to make sure they last long after you’ve left our office, consider following these healthy skin hacks:
