Skin Tightening Q & A

What is skin tightening?

Skin tightening at Ashburn Laser & Skincare Clinic is a noninvasive procedure that harnesses radiofrequency (RF) energy to target cells in the deep layers of your skin. The experienced team uses the Elixis® system, an innovative technology that reduces wrinkles and tightens skin without needles, surgery, or downtime.

How does skin tightening work?

The advanced technology of the Elixis system delivers RF energy that gently heats skin cells to stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin.

Collagen and elastin are proteins that keep skin firm and taut. Your skin contained a lot of these proteins in your younger years, but collagen and elastin levels decline with age. By increasing the production of these proteins, the Elixis restores strength and elasticity to your skin, so it appears smoother, tighter, and more youthful.

Where can skin tightening be performed?

The skilled specialists at Ashburn Laser & Skincare Clinic can use the Elixis to firm sagging skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, lines, and creases almost anywhere on your body. 

The most common areas for skin tightening include:

  • Jawline
  • Neck
  • Chest
  • Upper arms
  • Abdomen
  • Buttocks

The team at Ashburn Laser & Skincare Clinic also uses the Elixis system to perform body contouring and cellulite reduction treatments. 

Does skin tightening hurt?

The Elixis system has a unique cooling system and precision settings, so your Ashburn Laser & Skincare Clinic expert can deliver radiofrequency energy to the desired location at precisely the right temperature, so the procedure is virtually painless. In fact, many patients find the treatment relaxing, similar to a hot stone massage.

When will I see results?

Your skin may appear tighter and smoother shortly after your first skin-tightening treatment. Full results appear gradually over a period of up to three months, as collagen and elastin production continues to increase.

How many skin-tightening treatments will I need?

How many treatments you need depends on your skin type and personal goals. After your initial consultation, your specialist at Ashburn Laser & Skincare Clinic designs a personalized treatment plan based on your individual needs. Typically, two to four treatments are required to firm and rejuvenate your skin.
