HOW TO TIGHTEN SKIN
If you are looking to tighten or get rid of loose skin, there are several surgical and non-surgical methods to choose from.
Surgical methods are dangerous and leave you prone to numerous side effects in addition to a longer recovery time. Typically, surgical options are the only option for excessive skin laxity. There are far more options available for mild to moderate skin laxity, using everything from lasers to radio waves. At Body MedSculpt, we can improve the look of loose skin with an easy, non-invasive procedure that uses a mild radiation-based technology called radiofrequency skin tightening.
Using radiofrequency energy waves, the lower levels of your skin are heated to between forty and forty-five degrees Celsius. This causes your body to release heat-shock proteins that stimulate the production of collagen fibres in the body. This makes radiofrequency skin tightening one of the best methods to help tighten skin after weight loss.

SKIN TIGHTENING COST
If you’ve been wondering, “how much is a facelift in Canada?” there are many factors to consider other than just the price tag of the procedure. For starters, a facelift can cost anywhere from $6000 to $15,000. This does not include the downtime that is required to recover from this invasive and potentially dangerous procedure. However, non-invasive procedures are much more affordable. For a non-surgical facelift, Toronto’s Body MedSculpt offers radiofrequency treatments for prices between $250 and $2,000. Not to mention that a non-invasive option requires no downtime for recovery and fewer side effects.
To prepare for a radiofrequency skin tightening treatment, it is imperative to ensure proper hydration. We recommend that you consume two liters of water over the course of the 24 hours leading up to your procedure. Additionally, a mild exfoliation the day before is recommended to prepare your skin for the best results. Avoid wearing creams, lotions, deodorants, and makeup on the area being treated. Also, avoid shaving the treatment area the day of the procedure. It is also recommended that you wear comfortable clothing that you don’t mind getting a little messy. Ultrasound gel is used during the procedure that can potentially soil clothing but is easily cleaned.
A thick layer of ultrasound gel is applied to the area. Then using radiofrequency energy, the area will begin to feel heat akin to that of a hot stone massage. The heat is applied to target the lower levels of the dermis for approximately 20 - 40 minutes. This heat causes the body to release heat-shock proteins, which in turn help boost the body’s natural production of collagen.
The treatment time varies depending on the area being treated and the severity of the skin laxity. One radiofrequency skin tightening treatment by Body MedSculpt will typically be between 20-40 minutes. Multiple treatments may be required to achieve maximum results. This is far less than the time commitment required of more traditional, surgical skin tightening methods that can require weeks, sometimes even months, of downtime for recovery.
Following a radiofrequency skin tightening treatment, you can expect several physical changes to take place. Loose skin will become firm and taught. Fine lines and wrinkles will begin to look smoother. Also, your body will start to experience a boost in natural collagen production, which is something that tends to decrease as we age. You can expect to notice changes following one treatment; however, it could take up to 4 weeks for results to reach maximum efficacy. Also, depending on the severity of skin laxity, multiple treatments may be necessary to see the best results.
When you talk about a typical surgical facelift, the recovery time tends to be a lot longer. You need weeks of recovery time just to heal from the surgical wounds. Not to mention any of the dangerous potential side effects that you could be opening yourself up to. When considering a non-surgical face or body skin tightening procedure, your recovery time is considerably less. While you may experience some slight redness or swelling of the treated area, this might only take a matter of days to clear up. Aside from that, you can expect to return to any regularly scheduled activities immediately following the procedure—no need to book vacation time or use up any sick days.
Wondering what not to do after skin tightening therapy? While you are very much able to and encouraged to get back to your regular activities, we do advise that you take it easy on yourself. For example, you can absolutely hit the gym following a radiofrequency skin tightening treatment. However, while your body processes the dead fat cells, maybe take a break from intense workouts. Additionally, you may want to avoid drinking too much alcohol or applying creams, lotions, makeup, etc., for the following 48-72 hours.
Following your first radiofrequency skin tightening treatment with Body MedSculpt, you will begin to see results immediately. It could take up to 4 weeks to see the peak results of your procedure. Depending on the severity of skin laxity, you may need more treatments to achieve maximum results.
On average, the effects of the procedure should last several years by helping to boost collagen production within the body. However, many factors will affect the results of your radiofrequency skin tightening treatment and how long it lasts. For instance, the rate at which your body ages has an impact on how long the results of your procedure will last. Also, by avoiding smoking and sun exposure, you can extend the life of your procedure.
Following a surgical facelift procedure, there are many potentially dangerous side effects that one needs to be aware of. When it comes to skin tightening without surgery, side effects and contraindications are far less severe. With radiofrequency skin tightening by Body MedSculpt, you might experience some redness and/or swelling around the treated area. This shouldn’t last longer than a few days. Additionally, you should avoid applying creams, lotions, deodorants, sprays, or makeup to the area for 72 hours. Also, to give your body time to recuperate fully, you should avoid exhaustive activity and excessive alcohol consumption for 72 hours. Otherwise, radiofrequency skin tightening treatments are 100% safe.
