Giving your skin that tightened boost without surgery

skin tightening

In general, non-surgical skin tightening procedures work by using targeted energy to heat deeper layers of skin, which stimulates collagen and elastin production and gradually improves skin tone and texture. Some treatments also affect fibrous tissue to help smooth cellulite. There are numerous skin tightening treatments and technologies on the market, and each uses a unique mechanism to achieve the desired result.

skin laxity

As you age, your skin begins to undergo certain changes. Your natural collagen and elastin —two proteins that help our skin stay plump, firm and smooth—slows down, resulting in areas of lax, sagging skin on the face, neck and body. When compounded by sun exposure, environmental pollutants and lifestyle choices such as smoking or more than moderate drinking, these changes can transform smooth, youthful-looking skin into aged, sagging skin. If you are bothered by skin laxity, non-surgical skin tightening can temporarily halt this process and restore a firmer, smoother, more youthful appearance with little to no downtime.

Am I a good candidate for skin tightening?

Non-surgical skin tightening is generally best suited for patients who are bothered by mild to moderate skin laxity and do not need the more dramatic lifting and skin removal possible with cosmetic surgery.

While there are very few serious side effects associated with non-surgical skin tightening, it may not be appropriate for patients who are pregnant, taking certain medications, or have certain medical conditions.
