What is Skin Tightening?
Dramatic weight loss, long-term sun exposure, and the natural aging process are all factors that can weaken the underlying support structure of the skin, causing the skin to become loose and sag. Skin laxity can occur anywhere on the body, but sagging skin is most common in the face, neck, upper arms, chest, and abdomen. We offer a variety of skin tightening treatments that were developed to restore the tight and smooth appearance of more youthful skin. Our nonsurgical skin-tightening treatments use various types of laser and radiofrequency technologies to firm loose or sagging skin on the face, chin, neck, belly, stomach or thighs.
How Do Lasers And Radiofrequency Devices Tighten Skin?
Non-surgical skin tightening treatments firm the skin by heating the sub-dermal layers just below the skin’s surface. The heat induces inflammation within the skin’s collagen and elastin fibers, which causes new collagen and elastin fibers to form. These newly synthesized fibers are shorter and stronger, which causes the dermal and sub-dermal layers of skin to contract and pull tighter, revealing skin that is toned and firm. The device has special cooling technology that keeps the temperature of the skin’s surface cool and comfortable while the laser or radiofrequency energy penetrates deep into the sub-dermal layers of the skin. This allows for greater tightening of loose or saggy skin without thermal damage or injury to the skin’s surface.
Why Do People Have Skin Tightening Done?
Non-surgical or non-invasive skin tightening procedures are ideal for people who desire firmer, more youthful skin without invasive surgical procedures, such as a facelift or neck lift. Most patients opt for non-surgical skin tightening to correct skin that has become lax or wrinkled due to:
- The natural aging process
- Massive weight loss
- Sun damage
