Skin Tightening Q & A

What causes aging skin?

Loose, lax skin and wrinkles are an unfortunate part of the aging process. With each passing year, your skin makes less collagen and elastin — the building blocks of youthful skin. 

You may notice more wrinkles, your skin may seem looser and dryer, and your face loses some of its youthful fullness. 

Genetics plays a key role in the timing of these changes, but other factors, such as your lifestyle and smoking, also influence your skin’s appearance. 

What can skin tightening address?

Skin tightening procedures at IYA Medical can rebuild aging and damaged skin from the inside out. The treatments target the signs of aging and improve the appearance of:

  • Acne scars
  • Lax skin
  • Sun damage
  • Wrinkles

When you visit IYA Medical for a consultation, you can discuss the issues you’d like to address. Your practitioner suggests the best treatment to achieve your aesthetic goals.

What are the available skin tightening treatments?

IYA Medical offers more than one choice for skin tightening. 

Profound® 

The Profound system is the first and only radiofrequency microneedling device cleared by the FDA for facial and body treatments. 

Profound is an aesthetic tool that uses radiofrequency energy to lift, volumize, and tighten your skin by stimulating the production of elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid. IYA Medical considers Profound a game-changer in the world of medical aesthetics. The innovative tool provides dramatic results after only one treatment.

Clinical studies show the treatment resulted in five times more elastin and up to twice as much collagen in patients, while also increasing natural hyaluronic acid to plump up skin. 

Genius® RF microneedling 

Genius RF microneedling combines microneedling with radiofrequency energy to dramatically improve the look of your skin. The aesthetic team at IYA Medical uses Genius RF microneedling to treat scars, altered skin texture, fine lines, wrinkles, and laxity anywhere on your body.

What happens during skin tightening?

Profound skin tightening is a minimally invasive treatment. Your practitioner at IYA Medical first numbs your treatment area to maintain your comfort. 

They perform your skin tightening with a small handheld radiofrequency device equipped with multiple microneedles. The dual action of the heat and microneedles works to rejuvenate the skin around the face, chin, and neck area.
