Skin Tightening Q&A
What is skin tightening?

How does skin tightening work?
The skin tightening tool at Sylvan Weight Loss and Aesthetics targets two areas to get the desired results. First, the HIFU sends intense ultrasound energy to your skin’s dermal layer to stimulate the production fo collagen and restore your skin’s strength and elasticity.
In addition to your skin, the intense ultrasound energy Ultherapy creates also targets your superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS), the structural muscle that supports your face and neck. The energy created by Ultherapy tightens your SMAS to lift and rejuvenate your appearance.

- Smoothing of the skin
More and more people are turning to these skin tightening treatments, and HIFU has seen a major surge in popularity in recent years
What can I expect during skin tightening?
Your skin tightening occurs at the office. After cleansing your skin and identifying the treatment areas, your medical aesthetics provider at Sylvan Weight Loss and Aesthetics applies a special ultrasound gel to your skin and uses ultrasound technology to generate images that determine the areas that would benefit from the focused energy.
During skin tightening, you may feel the energy as it enters your skin. Comfort level varies, but you only feel the sensation when the device is delivering the energy.
The length of your treatment depends on the area undergoing skin tightening. For your face and neck, treatment may take up to 90 minutes and for your cheeks, 30 minutes.
Your skin may appear flushed after treatment, but there’s no downtime. You should see the full results of your skin tightening treatment within three months after your session.
