Diamond Skin Tightening
Even the most diligent of patients see their skin become lax as they age. This looseness has many contributing factors, from genetics to sun damage to environmental factors and lifestyle choices.
Diamond Skin Tightening is ideal for women and men who wish to restore tighter, firmer, and more youthful skin but do not need more invasive skin removal procedures. The laser rejuvenation technologies used in Diamond Skin Tightening offer quick treatment, minimal downtime, and no surgical scarring.
How Can Diamond Skin Tightening Contribute to My Overall Appearance?
The beauty of all of Dr. Diamond’s signature procedures is their comprehensiveness. Dr. Diamond is a firm believer in combining cosmetic treatments to treat all facial areas and all levels of the skin, resulting in a balanced and symmetrical facial contour.
Often your skin tightening is combined with Diamond Skin Therapy to improve the quality of your skin—treatments may include the Diamond InstaFacial®, the Diamond InstaAMNI®, Diamond Laser Rejuvenation, or the DiamondGlow™—to facial sculpting procedures like Diamond Facial Sculpting® or Diamond Facial Contouring.
Am I a Candidate for Diamond Skin Tightening?
Diamond Skin Tightening is appropriate for women and men whose skin is starting to lose its firm elasticity, leading to an aged and tired appearance.
Laser skin tightening is the ideal solution if you have fine lines and wrinkles on your forehead and around the eyes and mouth. These treatments will also improve the appearance of scarring from acne and will improve the appearance of skin if it was non-responsive to a facelift procedure.
Which Skin Tightening Treatments Can Be Included With Diamond Skin Tightening?
Your Diamond Skin Tightening will incorporate one or more of the following laser treatments. Your skin tightening program will depend on your particular needs and skin tone.
RFAL by InMode
RFAL, short for Radio-Frequency Assisted Lipolysis, uses a thermal energy field to induce skin tightening. A cannula is inserted beneath the skin, and an electrode is placed on the surface of the skin. An electrical current flows from the tip of the cannula to the electrode, creating a contained thermal field with a 100 percent energy concentration to maximize skin contraction and fat coagulation. Treatment is safe and controlled, and the device can automatically adjust the temperature as needed, producing uniform heating of the layers of skin. RFAL by InMode includes BodyTite® and FaceTite® options so that patients can receive comprehensive treatment.
Fotona 4D® is a non-invasive face lifting and tightening treatment that helps patients look younger, fresher, and more rested. This four-step laser rejuvenation treatment tightens skin from the inside out without surgery, anesthesia, needles, or significant downtime.
Using two laser wavelengths, Fotona 4D® addresses the entire face to provide natural-looking results. During this treatment, the skin is tightened around the jaw and perioral region, deep lines and imperfections are targeted and smoothed, and your entire facial contour is targeted for both deep and surface-level imperfections.
Forma™ skin tightening uses a combination of heat and radiofrequency to stimulate collagen production, thus tightening the layers of your skin. Forma™ targets the deeper skin layers, minimizing fine lines and wrinkles while providing an overall toned appearance. This laser treatment creates an overall lifting effect that can rival the capabilities of surgical procedures.
Forma Plus™ takes the Forma™ technology and uses it to address larger areas of concern on the body, such as the abdomen, arms, legs, and knees. This heat and radiofrequency treatment stimulate collagen production, allowing for firmer, tighter skin across the body.
How Is Diamond Skin Tightening Performed?
The primary way that laser skin tightening works is by triggering the wound healing process. This is accomplished by using a laser to heat the water molecules in the skin. As the water heats, it vaporizes the surrounding skin cells.
As the wound healing process is triggered, the production of new skin cells and collagen is stimulated, and existing collagen fibers contract. The procedure is not painful, but some patients report feeling a heating sensation that may cause some discomfort. To minimize discomfort, periodic blasts of cooling air generated by the skin tightening handpiece can be used.
What Is Recovery Like After Diamond Skin Tightening?
Recovery after a laser skin tightening procedure is much quicker than that of traditional plastic surgery. Because it is non-invasive, patients will start to notice results immediately after treatment that will continue to improve over time.
There is essentially no downtime with laser skin tightening. Patients can resume their normal daily activities immediately following treatment. The only noticeable effect of laser skin tightening is the treated area may appear a little red. This can easily be covered with makeup after a day or so. It is important to let your skin relax the night of your treatment.
Dr. Diamond will provide you with instructions on how to care for your skin following treatment.
What Results Can I Expect From Diamond Skin Tightening?
Immediately following the procedure, you should notice tighter skin in the treated areas. The increased collagen production will improve results over the next several months after treatment.
Skin tightening results will typically last for up to two years and maybe even longer if touch-up treatments are performed.
After the two-year mark, it may be necessary to receive another series of treatments to generate collagen production to keep the desired results.
How Can I Extend My Diamond Skin Tightening Results?
No cosmetic treatment can prevent the natural aging process, and, eventually, you will start to notice skin laxity and aging signs once again. Most patients see the results of their Diamond Skin Tightening treatments for six months up to two years as long as they are properly cared for.
