Are you bothered by sagging skin on your face or other parts of your body? As we age, the collagen in our skin begins to break down, leading to a decrease in skin volume and an increase in skin laxity. If you find yourself in this situation, you should consider having a skin tightening treatment performed to restore your youthful contours. But it’s important to be informed about your treatment options.
Non-Surgical Skin Tightening Treatments
When some people think about skin tightening treatments, surgical procedures come to mind. While these procedures definitely have their place in the cosmetic world, some people don’t want to undergo surgery. What’s more, some people don’t qualify for surgery.
One of the key benefits of undergoing a non-surgical skin tightening treatment is that absolutely no surgery is involved. In many cases, this means no downtime is required. You can have the treatment done and then leave our office as if nothing really happened.
Ultrasound is for more than just expectant mothers or people with kidney stones. Ultrasound treatments are quite effective for anyone looking for a nice lift. The technique works through the direction of focused ultrasound energy under the surface of your skin. This heats the skin more deeply than other treatments, so you are lifting and tightening from deeper under the skin.
Ultrasound treatments are performed using a small device delivering ultrasound energy. We are able to utilize ultrasound to look within the deeper layers of your skin to ensure that we transmit the right amount of energy in the right places. This treatment is known as Ultherapy®, and it could be perfect for you.
Radiofrequency makes another great skin tightening treatment choice. We use a special device to transmit thermal energy into your skin, leading to a tightening effect. Radiofrequency involves heating the skin to a shallow depth for the stimulation of new collagen production. The treatment involves little to no downtime and is known at our office as Thermage®.
