FAQ

Are lasers painful?

At Tighten It Spa, we do everything we can to ensure that patients are as comfortable and pain-free during and after procedures. We use topical numbing medication and ice to address any potential discomfort.

My biggest concern is my “turkey neck.” Which treatment is best to address this?

The Titan Laser can help you get the toned jawline you want. The Titan Laser utilizes a safe infrared light to heat the dermis below the skin’s surface. The heated collagen fibers provide immediate collagen contraction, improving the appearance of any droopiness. Collagen grows slowly so you’ll see gradual improvement in the months following your treatment.

Will I have swelling with injections or laser treatments?

While it’s not easy to predict which clients will experience swelling, we do know that those with fair skin and light eyes tend to swell more than those with more skin pigment. Although there may be some swelling after injections or laser treatments, the swelling is generally minimal.

Will Botox® injections cause bruising?

Generally, Botox® injections do not cause bruising. A handful of patients do see a small amount of discoloration. We take every possible step when administering the injections to prevent bruising.

Can the skin under my eyes be tightened?

Consultation

Yes! With PRP MicroPen and PRP injections. The Eclipse MicroPen aids in the production of collagen and elastin. The skin’s repair process results in a thicker epidermis with a softer appearance of wrinkles. Adding Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) enhances the results of your treatment by activating at least eight essential growth factors!

When do I use Botox®, and when do I use fillers?

The rule of thumb is that Botox® is used from the eyes up, and fillers are used from the eyes down. There are exceptions, but we will help you navigate those and assist you in selecting the best possible treatment.

How much downtime will I have with the resurfacing laser?

Generally, expect a day of downtime after a resurfacing treatment. Just after the treatment, you will see some redness and may feel as if you have a sun burn. Your skin may be pink for a day or two. Those with fair skin and light hair may also have some swelling. You can wear makeup and do all of your daily activities the day after the procedure.

What can I do about the wrinkles around my mouth?

Wrinkles around the mouth can be addressed in a few ways. We can use Palomar 1540 laser resurfacing, or for instant gratification, we can fill in the lines with a dermal filler.

My face is always red. Is there a treatment?

Consultation Yes, there finally is a treatment for facial redness or rosacea. This redness is caused by superficial blood vessels produced by your body. We can treat rosacea – sometimes with only one treatment - with our Palomar Laser. This laser closes down the vessels and reduces the redness.
