Although it is difficult to quantify the amount of tightening that an individual may receive after Portrait treatment, some patients do obtain reasonable improvement. There may be three days of downtime with the more gentle treatment.

Tightening, however, is not guaranteed, even at the higher settings. If one is considering improving the jowl and neck, higher energy settings would be more effective.
