Pre Consult Preparations
- Understand the basics of Tissue Tightening
- Evaluate- whether you want to go for a surgical procedure or non-surgical one?
- Analyse your lifestyle and calculate- how many days of a downtime are you okay with?
- Carefully analyse your face and prioritise the features in order of your preference
- Set your expectations right- research on the before and after images of the patients. Do not trust the advertisements, go for actual images. It is advisable to view videos to get a more clear picture
- Make sure you check the certifications of the clinic you are going to for the treatment
- Read about the following
- Radio Frequency based Skin Tightening
- Face Lifts and Thread Lifts
- Laser based Skin Tightening
Questions to Ask Your Doctor
- Politely though, do make sure that you ask the Doctor about the tissue tightening cases handled by him/her
- You can also ask the doctor to share the before and after images of the procedures performed by him/her
- Tell the doctor about your expectations and ask him/her as to how much of them can be fulfilled
- Ask them if the treatment/procedure can be customised as per your needs
- Ask specifically about the downtime
- Tell them about your skin type, if the doctor does not examine your skin and goes for suggesting the procedure directly, raise a red flag
- Tell them about any allergies that you have and make sure to know what they have to say about the side effects esp for your skin type.
All this being said, we hope that you will be able to make an informed decision regarding the procedure to be undertaken.
Have a Happy, Tightened Glowing Skin!
