Skin Tightening Q & A

What is skin tightening?

Skin tightening is a treatment that improves your skin’s elasticity. Your skin becomes looser and less elastic over time as you age, and certain factors like sun damage and stress can cause this to happen faster than you might anticipate. 

With skin tightening treatments at Dr. White’s Vein Center and Morgantown SculpSure & Clear Ink, PLLC, you can enjoy smoother, tighter skin with less cellulite. The team uses Contoura BodyFX and MiniFX by Inmode® to target one or more areas that you specify during your initial treatment consultation. 

Contoura BodyFX and MiniFX are noninvasive treatments that stimulate skin tightening by using radiofrequency energy. The radiofrequency energy stimulates blood flow and heats your deep tissues. This causes renewed collagen and elastin growth within your skin and tissues for a long-lasting and natural tightening effect. 

You may need more than one session for the best possible results with Contoura BodyFX or MiniFX. 

Which areas can skin tightening treatments target?

Contoura BodyFX is designed to target many larger areas of your body. During your consultation, Dr. White and her team can help you decide which areas to target and define specific goals. With Contoura BodyFX, you can target your:

  • Arms
  • Stomach
  • Bra line
  • Flanks (love handles)
  • Thighs

MiniFX is designed to target smaller areas, like your face or neck. 

The two systems work in the same way otherwise. You can choose to target just one or two problem areas or many areas throughout your body for a more drastic transformation.

How long do the results of skin tightening last?

The results of your skin tightening treatment with Contoura BodyFX or MiniFX are particularly long-lasting because the treatments cause a natural restructuring of proteins like collagen and elastin in your skin. However, it’s important to note that the results aren’t permanent because no treatment can stop the natural aging process. 

In order to keep your skin tight for as long as possible after treatment, Dr. White recommends:

  • Using sunscreen
  • Avoiding tanning beds and other sources of artificial UV light
  • Finding a healthy way to manage your stress
  • Staying hydrated
  • Caring for your skin with gentle moisturizers, cleansers, and other products

If you want to start prioritizing your skin to keep it looking its best at any age, Dr. White can recommend products based on your skin type.
