January 26, 2023Skin Method’s Approach to Skin Tightening
by skmethod

As we make memories, have life experiences, and gain wisdom, unfortunately gravity begins to run its course on our appearance. While we may feel energetic and youthful, the elasticity of our skin may say otherwise.  

But believe it or not, there are many ways to firm sagging skin before seeking out plastic surgery.  

At Skin Method, we are experts at rejuvenating the skin’s look and feel. We believe that non-invasive skin tightening treatments can be very effective in achieving the results you are looking for.  

There are several skin tightening treatments out there! You may have heard of Morpheus8, Ultherapy, or Thermage, for example. At Skin Method, we use Fotona for skin tightening. This article will outline exactly how Fotona works and what to expect from this skin tightening treatment.

Ultimately, booking a consultation with one of our staff is the best way to determine the right treatment for you, but this list can get you started on the right path to firmer skin! 

Skin Tightening


Fotona Dynamis Pro for Skin Tightening

The Fotona Dynamis Pro is a non-invasive laser treatment for skin tightening. With its dual wavelengths, the laser gently heats the skin’s deeper layers while leaving the skin unharmed allowing safe, precisely controlled and effective delivery of laser pulses to the treatment area.  

How it Works …

This treatment is broken down into 4 steps: 

  1. We begin the treatment with our Erbium Laser, inside the mouth (interoral) which targets the mucosa membrane inside the mouth for treatment of the Nasolabial folds and marionette lines.
  2. The second step uses our ND:YAG laser with its super long pulse mode, it safely and comfortably bulk heats the skin for long lasting lifting effects.  
  3. The third step to this unique 4 step treatment will improve the laxity at the skins surface giving a shrink-wrapping like effect that will immediately leave you with glowing skin, address fine lines, and minimize pore size.  
  4. The final step is a gentle micro-peel to exfoliate dead skin and polish the skin’s surface to improve overall complexion and texture.  

This approach stimulates collagen remodeling the new production of collagen through neocollagenesis.


What it Treats …

This treatment lifts, tightens, and plumps the skin, all while also improving overall skin texture.  This skin tightening method can even target specific imperfections such as pigmentation and blemishes.

At Skin Method, we use this laser to perform a 3D laser skin tightening treatment or a anti-aging laser skin tightening treatment. Regardless of the approach, the Fotana laser can target all areas of the face and body.  

More specifically, you can treat:

  • Jowls
  • Nasolabial Folds
  • Smile Lines
  • Crows Feet
  • and more

We gauge the number of Fotana treatments based on our patients age and skin health. We see optimal results with 3-5 treatments of Fotana. Consistency is key in achieving the improvements you are looking for.  


What to Expect …

Lay back and relax; there is no pain during the Fotona treatment. With that being said, each patient varies in their sensitivity to the heat used by the tool. One can expect to feel a mild heat sensation throughout the treatment.

Following the treatment, it is normal for the skin to feel hot and some mild redness can last anywhere from 1 hour to 3 days. Mild pealing is also expected, but a good daily moisturizer can help alleviate these symptoms.

Despite minor redness or pealing, there is no required downtime following a Fotona treatment. Patients can confidently return to their regular activities, including exercise. That said, it is important to avoid direct sun exposure and apply a high-quality SPF, as the laser does make the skin more sensitive to the sunlight.


Why we Love Fotona Dynamis Pro for Skin Tightening

The Fotona treatment works from the inside out to achieve an optimum tightening outcome. What’s more is that the patient doesn’t need to endure any discomfort to get results. Fotona is a safe treatment that heats the deeper tissue layers without causing harm to the skin’s surface.
