About skin tightening in Victoria.
An important pillar of any comprehensive anti-aging approach, skin tightening treatments address the leading symptom of one of the main aging triggers: volume loss that leads to saggy skin, folds, fine lines, wrinkles, and a tired or stressed appearance. On the body, diminished collagen contributes to the appearance of cellulite, laxity, and poorly defined contours. With access to state of the art skin tightening treatments such as Ultherapy®, Thermage®, and FIRM™/TightFX™, Victoria and Vancouver Island residents can achieve tighter, smoother and firmer skin without surgery.
Skin tightening treatments help with:
- body sculpting / body contours
- jawline & jowls
- heavy brows
How it works:
Drawing from a range of premier skin tightening systems, an exacting treatment plan will be developed to meet your individual needs. Skin tightening technology involves the delivery of energy deeply into the skin via radiofrequency or focused ultrasound waves in order to remodel collagen fibers and activate the synthesis of new connective tissues. Over a period of weeks to months, this process of regeneration plumps up the dermis, tightens, firms, and lifts to achieve more youthful skin and facial contours.

Skin Tightening Frequently Asked Questions
Skin tightening treatments range from painless FIRM™ and TiteFX™, to uncomfortable but effective Ultherapy® treatments. Oral analgesics help ease the treatment experience.
Some patients will notice an immediate collagen contraction. The process of collagen synthesis, skin tightening, and firming normally takes 3-4 months to peak.
Areas of lax skin will be tightened giving better definition to facial contours. Additionally, skin is likely to appear more plump and supple.
Skin tightening treatments are considered no-downtime as there is normally no redness. At most, mild swelling and tenderness may present for a few days. In some instances, mottled bruising and/or red lines may appear and gradually clear with Ultherapy® treatments.
Following an anti-aging skincare regimen that includes an antioxidant serum in combination with a broad spectrum sunscreen every day, rain or shine, is imperative to prevent further damage. We also highly recommend daily use of a nutricosmetic, such as the Advanced Dermal Formula from GliSODin® Skin Nutrients, to protect and maintain the integrity of your skin’s collagen.
