THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT SKIN TIGHTENING FACIAL
It is useful to know in advance, that for long-term results, a series of six to eight weekly treatments is recommended. This is because although one session will begin to lessen wrinkles and habitual expression lines, tighten facial contours and improve skin tone, regular sessions have a cumulative effect.
How many sessions does it take to see results?
There is no one answer to this question.The way your face ages is impacted by many factors, some of which are genetics, eating habits, sun exposure, supplements, how much sugar you eat, how much alcohol you drink and whether you are smoker or non-smoker.Most clients notice an immediate change in the feel of their facial muscles after only one session, often mentioning their face feels lighter, eyes feel more open and that the stress and tension of the day has diminished.You and your therapist will discuss your goals and determine a treatment schedule.
