How Long Does it Take?
This is one of the questions I’ve heard the most over my 14+ years of working with quality, comfortable skin care treatments. This question is usually asked when someone is getting skin tightening done. Eye area, neck, jawline or stomach, people want to know how long it’s going to take to get results.
Here’s my analogy:
Let’s say you got a cut on the top of your hand. It takes several days before that cut looks – for lack of a better word – ‘closed’. We could even use the word ‘sealed’. This is when you feel comfortable taking off the bandage and doing things like submerging your hand in dishwater. You’re no longer worried about anything getting into the cut. It’s closed.
But you still can see clearly, without a doubt, where the cut was.
Several more days pass and the cut is less visible but still there.
Until one day, it isn’t.
This same process is how skin tightening works. With technology, we can activate this same wound healing response without any injury at all. So, ultimately, when it comes to skin tightening, it takes several days for the body to react and respond to the treatment. It can take two weeks for the body to process that one event on the treatment table. The time on the treatment table during treatment is like turning the key in the ignition of your car. You’ve gotten things started. Next step is to start moving to your destination.
With patience and persistence comes results!
