Frequently Asked Questions

Skin Tightening

Is skin tightening painful?

The skin tightening procedure is painless, the NIR module utilized by the Soprano XLi guarantees maximal results with minimal discomfort. Although slight tingling sensations and heat may be experienced, the treatment is often equated to a soothing hot stone massage.

How will my skin feel following my treatment?

Minor temporary irritation may occur immediately following skin tightening treatments. The treated area may swell and/or redness of the skin may be noticeable from a couple of minutes to a few hours. Seek medical assistance if the swelling or redness is alarming or persistent, or if any adverse reactions are experienced.

How many treatments will I need?

Every individual will need roughly 8-12 treatments, although some may need less or more in order to optimize results. Skin tightening is an advanced procedure that gradually improves the laxity of the skin, thereby necessitating treatment intervals to enhance results. Treatment intervals also depend on the surface area of different body parts and the skin sensitivity of individual clients.

How long are the treatments?

Skin tightening treatments may last between a few minutes to a couple of hours, depending on the size of the area being treated. Château Rose is committed to optimizing results and thoroughly treating clients to maximize every skin tightening session.

What precautions should I take prior to the treatment?

It is best to avoid long-term sun exposure, including tanning beds, for a minimum of 6 weeks prior to treatment. Clients must also avoid applying any creams or deodorants on and around the designated treatment area on the day of every appointment.

What precautions should I take following the treatment?

The treated area may be slightly red and warm immediately following certain sessions for a limited amount of time. The delicacy of treatment areas is enhanced following treatments; the use of a sunscreen, SPF 30 or greater, is advised, as well as the avoidance of tanning beds and immediate extended sun exposure for three to six weeks following treatment. The direct application of hot water should be avoided for 48 hours after every session, and skin irritants (glycolics, retinoids, ammonia, trisodium phosphate, isopropanol, etc.), often found in various beauty creams, bleaches, detergents, and fragrances, should also be avoided following skin tightening treatments.

Is the treatment safe?

Skin tightening is a painless, safe, and non-invasive procedure with little to no side effects. The Soprano XLi is ANSI and FDA approved and clinically proven effective on all body parts and skin types (Fitzpatrick skin types I-VI) including tanned skin. The near-infrared module, and the exclusive IN-Motion™ and DualChill™ technologies ensure that the Soprano XLi meets the highest standards of medical safety. The controlled wavelengths and light sources involved restore skin laxity without harming the surrounding skin tissue, thereby minimizing the risk of both short-term and long-term side effects.
