Loose skin can create a host of issues with the way you look. In most cases, skin conveys is a body whose skin has aged. This aging process is, by all accounts, impossible to prevent from occurring. People age, that is just a fact of life you and everyone else around you in Chula Vista has to accept. Yet, just because you age, this does not mean you have to look like you’re ready for the retirement home. What if there was a way to obtain your youthful look again? Procedures offered by Dr. Eugene Nowak at Nowak Aesthetics in Chula Vista, such as skin tightening, are capable of restoring the firm, smooth look to your skin. With the wrinkles gone, this makes enjoying what skin tightening can do for you a real solution to look forward to using to get rid of your unwanted wrinkles.
Why Does Your Skin Start to Sag and Wrinkle?
When you were younger, your body was amazing at producing enough collagen to keep the skin firm and tight. As time passes, your body becomes less capable of producing collagen. As a result, your skin will begin to sag in the absence of collagen. If the elasticity of your skin breaks down too, this can produce an even more dramatic aging effect to your skin and make you look far older in the process.
The Advantage of Laser Skin Tightening
While lasers are being used to do so many more things for the skin these days, it is no wonder that laser skin tightening is now possible too. Laser skin tightening works by heating up the deep layers of the skin. This process stimulates collagen production. As more collagen forms in these deep layers of skin, this fills in those layers and causes the skin to tighten up. People who use this approach to tighten their skin can often easily avoid a partial or full facelift procedure.
The great thing about laser skin tightening is that it treats the area and leaves no permanent damage to the skin. Sure, there will be a little redness to heal up, but there may not be much downtime that a person must go through after the procedure. It is, however, recommended that a person avoid sunlight for some time or wear sunscreen to prevent the sun from irritating the treated area of the skin where laser tightening was performed.
Skin Tightening for the Face
The most common place to see skin tightening used to get rid of wrinkles is in the facial region. When the face ages, it really shows on some people. Yet, cosmetic procedures that involve tightening the skin around the eyes, cheeks, chin, and forehead can truly make it appear as if years have been lifted off of a person’s life. For older people who have had such procedures done, this can help them regain confidence, and they may even become more socially active around Chula Vista as a result of their newly found confidence.
