Artosthetics Skin Treatments

Our Skin Tightening service is an advanced non-invasive service which works by helping your skin to revive natural levels of Collagen and Elastin cells needed for fresh, youthful looking skin. Our skin treatment targets the upper level of the skin and will give you fresh results by naturally tightening your skin. It will leave you with visibly smooth skin and dramatically reduce your fine lines/wrinkles.

Who would be a good candidate?

This dynamic service is for any individual looking to minimize excess skin and/ or diminish fine lines and wrinkles. Although, the typical client age varies, many clients between the ages of 35 - 70 have seen highly impressive results. The client should not have any medical contradictions or health issues in order to receive this treatment. 

What is it used to treat?

The service is known to significantly reduce and diminish the following:

EXCESS SKIN FOR AREAS SUCH AS:
-Upper and Lower Eyelid

- Arms

- Stomach

- Neck

- Cheeks

- Lips (Lip flip)

FINE LINES/ WRINKLES ON AREAS SUCH AS:

- Forehead Lines

- 11’s (between eyebrows)

- Smokers Lines

- Marionette Lines

- Nasolabial Folds

How long does it last?

Our Skin Treatment is more than a simple tightening treatment. Skin is actually reduced, so the effects should last as long as they could with many invasive surgery. Like all surgical and cosmetic procedures, the effects are not entirely permanent, as it does not stop the natural aging process. However, the positive effects and outstanding results should last you for years depending on the area treated. The effects of treatment will be noticeable immediately after the first treatment, but the optimal results will be seen after 8-12 weeks. For some, an additional treatment may be required for maximum results. 

How many treatments will I need?

The number of treatments required will vary depending on the condition being treated, laxity of the skin, the desired degree of correction and the individual’s response to the treatment. Most clients see results instantly and this continues to improve over the course of the following 8-12 weeks. Further treatments can be carried out to get better results, although it is uncommon to require more than two treatments. Appointments must be spaced out 8-12 weeks.

Who is this treatment NOT for?

**This service is NOT intended for clients ranging 4-6 on the Fitzpatrick scale as they risk a higher chance of scarring and hyperpigmentation.

This treatment does not deal with fatty tissue, as it can be found in the lowest layer of the skin and has to be treated with other services. Ideally, you should not have any of the contradictions listed above. If you are unsure as to whether or not you would be a good candidate, or have other questions, please contact us.

Clients should be in overall good health for the time of the appointment and not experiencing or have any of the following contradictions:
 

- Inflamed skin (including sunburn/suntan)
- Flu or Cold

- Pacemaker

- Diabetes

- Cancer

- History of Heart Condition
- Extreme High/Low Blood Pressure

- High Cholesterol

- Active Cold Sores

- Pregnant or Nursing

- History of Keloid Scars

- History of Hypo or Hyperpigmentation

- Fitzpatrick Scale 4-6

Does it hurt?

Although we apply a topical numbing cream to the skin prior to each session, everyone's tolerance is different. Many clients say it’s a feeling of 3 out of 10, while resembling a slight “tickle” or tweezing. Others have mentioned not feeling anything at all.

How long does the service take?

The longest part of the service is allowing the topical numbing cream to numb and take effect. The actual service is fairly quick depending on the size of the treated area. Please set aside approximately 2-3 hours for your service.

Are there any side effects or risks?

Our skin treatment is known to be a safe service due to its non-invasive nature. However, it’s very important to let the skin heal itself naturally and not interfere with any harsh scrubbing, picking or scratching to avoid any hypo/hyper pigmentation as well as scarring. 

Should I take off work?

Each case is different. Some treated areas are more exposed than others (face vs. stomach). Clients are advised to do what they feel comfortable with. However, there are generally no risks with going to work and performing normal daily activities.

What does the Skin Treatment cost?

Please contact us directly in order to receive a price quotation for your desired area. Treatments range from $300 and up depending on the size of the area.
