The technology delivers constant, gradual radiofrequency energy deeply into the skin, causing heat to build up where the skin and fat layer meet. The increasing heat modifies the collagen bundles deep in the skin, causing contraction and stimulating the growth of new collagen over time. The result is firmer, tighter and younger looking skin.
The wrinkle reduction and skin firming effects of the skin tightening treatment will continue to improve for at least six months as your skin produces new collagen and over time will significantly improve skin texture and tone.
The treatment is virtually painless and generally pleasurable unlike many other energy based procedures. It takes less than an hour and you can resume normal activities immediately. You will appear more radiant and no one will know you’ve had anything done.
So when you’re considering a skin tightening treatment… Be Sure it’s Cynosure!
How long does a skin tightening treatment take?
Each treatment will take approximately 30 – 60 minutes depending on the number of areas being treated at one time.
What do I need to do before having a treatment?
There is generally no preparation required before having a treatment but please arrive well hydrated. Ask your practitioner if you should discontinue certain topical products or medications.
Is the treatment painful?
No. Unlike other skin tightening systems, this skin tightening treatment does not require anaesthesia. It is virtually painless and in fact, patients comment that it feels like a warm massage.
What can I expect after a skin tightening treatment?
There is no recovery time needed after a skin tightening treatment. You may be slightly pink with mild swelling for a couple of hours but you can wear makeup right away and resume normal activities, so it fits easily into busy schedules.
How many treatments are needed?
Many people see results immediately after just one treatment. For some patients, a series of three treatments spaced about one month apart may be recommended for optimal improvement. Additional treatments may be undertaken at any time for long term maintenance.
