Skin Tightening Q&A

What is ultrasound skin tightening?

At Nagi Ibrahim M.D., the practice offers a noninvasive treatment that uses targeted ultrasound energy to tighten skin and lift skin around the brow, chin, and neck area. What makes ultrasound skin tightening unique is its ability to provide dramatic, consistent results without surgery or downtime.

How does ultrasound therapy tighten skin?

The procedure directs ultrasound energy to your deepest tissue layers and heats them up without affecting the surface of your skin. Prior to ultrasound skin tightening, cosmetic surgery was one of the only treatments that could safely lift and tighten the deepest layers of your skin.

This targeted energy activates your body’s natural healing response, which stimulates cell regeneration and collagen production. Collagen is a structural protein that keeps your skin tight and plump. As you age, your body naturally loses this essential protein, resulting in fine lines, wrinkles, and saggy skin.

Most clients use skin tightening treatments to focus on the following areas:

  • Eye area
  • Brow
  • Cheeks
  • Chin
  • Jaw
  • Neck
  • Chest

If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your skin, skin tightening treatments can help lift and tighten your problem areas in as little as one session.

How soon will I see results from skin tightening treatments?

You may notice subtle changes right after treatment, but the results of a skin tightening session take three to four months to fully appear. Collagen takes time to develop and disperse into your skin. 

What can I expect during a skin tightening session?

Most patients tolerate skin tightening well, but it can cause slight discomfort. For this reason, Nagi Ibrahim M.D. suggests mild oral pain relievers prior to a session. If you do have discomfort, it’s only for a very short time.

Skin tightening requires no surgery, incisions, or blood loss, so recovery is quite quick. You can resume your daily activities right afterward, without having to take any time off.

How long do the results from skin tightening last?

Your genetics, specific problem areas, and lifestyle dictate how long the results last. Most people can expect to see benefits for two to three years. If you’re younger than 45, take care of your skin, avoid the sun, don’t smoke, and have good genes, you may enjoy long-lasting results.
