Skin Tightening Q&A

What causes loose and sagging skin?

The primary cause of loose or sagging skin is collagen loss. During your youth, your face has a thick layer of collagen. Over the years, you lose much of that natural padding, leaving your skin to sag and pool into lines, folds, and wrinkles. 

The effects of years of sun damage, environmental toxins, and dry or sensitive skin also become more apparent once you lose a significant amount of collagen. On its own, your body won’t produce new collagen, so the effects will continue to advance as time passes. 

Skin tightening works to promote new collagen production, leading to smoother skin with fewer signs of aging. 

What is CELLUTONE and how does it help with skin tightening?

CELLUTONE is a noninvasive and painless treatment that uses carefully controlled vibrations to reduce cellulite and tighten your skin. These vibrations prompt your body to boost circulation in the treatment area, which also increases oxygen supply to the treated tissues.

Treatments decrease visible cellulite and tighten your skin. Excess waste products in the treatment area are cleared and eliminated from your body, and fluid buildup is also lessened, further enhancing the smoothing effects. 

CELLUTONE treatments require no advance preparation and no recovery time. You’ll see an immediate improvement after each session, but the full effects will take a few weeks to develop. Dr. Aguiluz will estimate the number of treatments you’ll need to achieve optimal results during your initial visit. 

What is Exilis Ultra 360™?

Exilis Ultra 360 is a skin tightening treatment that can help you achieve a more youthful and well-rested facial appearance as well as tighter skin in all areas of your body. Clinical studies have shown this approach to be a safe and effective alternative to more invasive procedures. 

This treatment is a great option for loose skin in the following areas:

  • Face
  • Upper arms
  • Neck
  • Beneath your shin
  • Abdomen
  • Lower back
  • Hands
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Knees

Treatments use a combination of radiofrequency energy and ultrasound to create a tightening effect and stimulate new collagen production.
