Skin Tightening treatments are non-invasive, safe and effective cosmetic procedures to improve the appearance of sagging, loose or droopy skin. They help you look younger and feel more comfortable, without undergoing surgery.
The best way to determine which treatment will work for you is to schedule a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon who has experience in both surgical and nonsurgical techniques to treat sagging skin. Ask your doctor about the options available, which may include laser skin resurfacing, facial rejuvenation with injectable dermal fillers, BOTOX(c) injections, microneedling, and liposuction.
Injectable dermal fillers are injected just beneath the skin to restore the lost volume in the face, reduce wrinkles and fine lines, and create an overall smoother complexion. They can be made of collagen, hyaluronic acid, or synthetic materials. They are often used as part of a treatment plan that includes other cosmetic procedures, such as Botox(c) and microneedling, to maximize the benefits.
Depending on the type of filler, results can last from five or six months to a year and a half. You should consult with Skin Tightening a cosmetic surgeon or injector before choosing a filler, as there are different types and risks associated with each type.
This minimally invasive procedure uses laser energy to deeply heat the skin, stimulate new collagen formation, and tighten and tone the skin. It is an excellent option for patients who want to tighten loose skin on the face, neck and body, with minimal downtime required.
The Pelleve system is an FDA-approved, RF energy device that targets the skin and fat layer below the surface of your skin, inducing the release of heat-shock proteins to stimulate new collagen and elasticity. It is the most effective radiofrequency technology for body contouring and can be used on multiple parts of the body, including the abdomen, thighs, arms, and buttocks.
The doctor uses an Endymed device that produces deep and focused radiofrequency waves to the targeted area of the skin, where collagen and elastin are lost with age. These waves gently heat the tissue, triggering a healing response that creates more collagen and elastin and also moulding the existing fat to lift the skin.
