Not all skin-tightening treatments require invasive surgical techniques.  While the traditional facelift is ideal for severe skin sagging and drooping, there are two FDA-approved treatments designed to promote skin tightening, thus revealing that youthful skin that’s hiding under years of stress and fatigue.

But what’s the difference between these two treatments – and which one is right for you?

Ultherapy For Skin Tightening

Ultherapy is a skin-tightening technology designed to penetrate multiple skin layers for maximum results.  The procedure uses the power of ultrasound to target the same skin layers as would a facelift; however, instead of manually pulling skin taught, the ultrasound energy heats and tightens the bottom layers of skin, all while invigorating collagen production.

There’s little to no downtime associated with Ultherapy treatments; what’s more, most patients see tightening results after a single session.

Fotona 4D: Skin Tightening With a Little Extra

While Ultherapy is ideal for treating the bottom-most skin layers, it’s not as effective at treating the top layer.  That’s why Fotona 4D is a great option for patients looking to target the top layer of skin.  This laser treatment uses a combination of wavelengths to treat the skin at four different levels; what’s more, the treatment can be used to tighten skin from inside the mouth.  Fotona 4D is finished off with a deep heating/tightening treatment, as well as a customizable laser peel.

The end result is tighter, younger-looking skin that combines the benefits of skin tightening with anti-aging laser peels.
