Skin Tightening Q & A

What is skin tightening?

Skin tightening is an aesthetic service, using advanced technology to improve the appearance of your skin. 

At Missoula Wellness & Medspa in Missoula, Montana, Dr. Pacheco uses ultrasound to tighten skin with the Ultherapy® method. The noninvasive ultrasound technology sends heat deep into the deepest layers of your skin to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin.

The procedure can:

  • Lift your breasts
  • Flip your lip
  • Reduce the appearance of wrinkles
  • Reduce the appearance of excess skin under your chin

The FDA has cleared this method to treat your brow area, neck, chin, and cleavage. The procedure lifts your skin and reduces the appearance of wrinkles.

How does skin tightening work?

The Ultherapy® method’s use of ultrasound energy provides a more natural approach to skin problems that used to require surgery. 

It uses pulsating heat energy to lift and tighten your skin to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The procedure lasts 30-90 minutes, depending on the area treated. The treatment doesn’t require any anesthesia or incisions.

During your consultation, discuss your aesthetic goals with Dr. Pacheco. You can also have more than one area treated during your session.

Am I a candidate for skin tightening?

As you age, your skin starts to decrease its production of collagen and elastin, which causes it to sag and develop fine lines and wrinkles. The appearance of crepey skin can make you look older than you feel.

Advanced skin tightening solutions help produce structural proteins in your treated areas to keep your skin firm, resilient, and young-looking.

If you notice areas of your skin showing signs of aging, schedule a consultation with Dr. Pacheco. She can help determine if skin tightening is right for you. If it is, she can also discuss how many sessions you might need to give you a successful outcome.

How long will my skin tightening results last?

Because it takes time for your skin to grow collagen and elastin, you won’t see results for a few weeks. However, once the procedure takes full effect, you should notice results for up to a year.
