Non-surgical skin tightening can be an attractive option for those people who do not like the idea of going through invasive surgery that requires general anesthesia and significant downtime in order to gain a younger-looking appearance. If you previously thought that something like a facelift or a body lift was the only way to tighten that sagging skin and eliminate the wrinkles, there is good news. A variety of non-surgical skin tightening treatment options are available, some of which work by stimulating the body to tighten the skin itself.
Radiofrequency treatments have become one of the most popular and widely used methods for tightening the skin in recent years. When used for skin tightening, the radiofrequency energy generates heat in the deep tissues of the skin without destroying the outer layers. These treatments work by using heat to stimulate the lower layers of the skin to make more collagen. This will restore fullness to the skin.
Collagen is a protein that helps to provide fullness. As people age, the amount of collagen naturally produced by the body decreases. This causes the skin to become loose and develop wrinkles. When the collagen level returns to what is was in prior years, the skin will also look more like it did during those years.
Focused ultrasound is among the newest treatment methods for non-surgical skin tightening. Just like other methods, deep layers of the skin are targeted in order to promote the production of collagen. It is a popular method for treating the skin around the eyes, jaws and under the chin. Patients can return to most all of their normal activities immediately.
