Skin Tightening Q & A
Why does my skin look and feel loose?
When your skin grows loose, the cause is simple: There’s less of a support network (collagen and elastin) underneath your skin than there used to be. This can happen with major weight loss, but it’s most commonly the result of aging.
As you age, your body starts making less elastin and collagen. However, medical aesthetic treatments like TempSure, microneedling, and ICON laser wrinkle reduction can trigger your body to rebuild its collagen and elastin to tighten your skin.
How does TempSure work?
TempSure uses radiofrequency energy to help your body make new collagen. Your Hamptons Medical Associates care provider uses a small handheld device to send the radiofrequency pulses deep into your skin.
This creates intense heat in the lower dermal layers and triggers your body to start collagen production. Some patients see results with one treatment, but you may need additional treatments to reach your aesthetic goals. Your skin’s tightness continues to improve in the following weeks as the collagen rises to fill lines and wrinkles while providing support.
How does ICON laser treatment work?
ICON fractional resurfacing is a laser treatment that improves your skin by pulsing energy into your skin's deeper layers. This stimulates new collagen production and improves skin tightness.
ICON treatment is also a good option for filling in acne scars or other skin depressions. Most patients need a series of treatments for optimal skin tightening, usually 3-5 treatments total.
How does microneedling work?
Dermapen microneedling at Hamptons Medical Associates uses state-of-the-art skin needling technology to prompt natural collagen genesis and skin recovery. During treatment, a small group of tiny needles pierces the skin to make small channels.
Topical nutrients can then move all the way down to your fibroblasts, which nourish the lowest layers of skin. This improved absorption means that your skin can repair itself faster because your body makes collagen at an accelerated rate. Skin tightening with microneedling usually requires a series of treatments, usually anywhere from 4-6 treatments total.
