Skin Tightening Q & A
What skin-tightening treatments are available?
At Lipogenex Anti-Aging Center, Accent XL and Lipodissolve injections help you achieve ultimate skin-tightening effects.
Accent XL treats loose, sagging skin by stimulating collagen growth. Lipodissolve is used for localized fat reduction and to smooth your skin’s appearance by reducing the appearance of cellulite.
ClearLift™ is a nonablative approach to laser skin resurfacing. The laser energy penetrates your outer layer of skin to create healing and collagen development beneath, leading to tighter skin. Combined, these therapies give you superior results.
How does Accent XL tighten the skin?
Accent XL uses dual-layer thermography to treat two layers of the skin. This tightens the outer layer of your skin while simultaneously promoting collagen development. A generous amount of collagen is present in your skin in your youth, but as you get older, collagen production reduces.
With Accent XL radiofrequency treatments, your skin is prompted to produce more of this skin-strengthening compound, so your youthful glow and tautness are restored. Your skin feels tighter, smoother, and stronger as a result of these treatments.
What areas does Accent XL treat?
Accent XL can resolve sagging skin in the following areas:
- Upper arms
Dr. Karampahtsis also suggests Accent XL treatments to resolve the dimpling of cellulite.
Does Accent XL hurt?
Treatments with Accent XL are well-tolerated and cause minimal discomfort, if any. Expect a sensation like a hot massage. Each session lasts 30-45 minutes.
What is Clearlift?
Clearlift is laser skin tightening technology that penetrates to deeper layers of your skin, so all stages of healing and skin repair occur beneath the surface. Treatments are fast and virtually painless, and unlike many other laser treatments, you need no downtime.
Should I schedule downtime following skin-tightening treatments?
You can go back to all your normal activities following Accent XL treatments and Clearlift treatments. You may have some redness and swelling immediately following a session, but this fades quickly.
What are Lipodissolve injections?
Dr. Karampahtsis combines Accent XL with Lipodissolve injections to help you achieve optimal results. Lipodissolve injections are designed to target specific fatty areas. They’re commonly used on the thighs and abdomen.
Lipodissolve is used for localized fat reduction and can significantly reduce the appearance of cellulite. Accent XL combined with a Lipodissolve treatment reduces any discomfort caused by the injection and helps soothe the area.
How many treatments will I need to achieve skin tightening?
Dr. Karampahtsis creates a customized plan for your body, but usually, 3-6 treatments are optimal. He schedules these about 2-4 weeks apart.
