There are so many topical products available in the market claiming to have positive effects on the sagging or wrinkled skin. But the products barely make any difference in the skin texture and appearance. The skin tightening treatments are meant to lift the skin, tone and tighten the sagging skin visibly. This is an excellent alternative for invasive skin treatments to get the same effects.
The sagging skin on the face and the body usually comes after pregnancy, weight loss or with the aging process. Other factors could be heredity or smoking. With age, the collagen production in the body reduces and the soft tissues start losing the elasticity. Adding to this, the connective muscles and the tissues start to sag and stretch. After pregnancy or fast weight loss, the signs become more prominent. Gravity shifts the underlying fat and makes the skin to expand leading to sagging.
The entire process causes skin laxity issues in the nasolabial folds, sagging jowls, drooping eyelids, marionette lines,platysmal banding or turkey neck under the chin. The non-invasive skin tightening processes are ultrasound therapy and laser therapy.
The ultrasound therapy utilizes the heat to target the skin surface and help in collagen production. This is a constant restorative treatment. It means the results show up with time and the continual treatment heals the skin and most of the patients see visible results within six weeks.
The laser therapy works similarly as it heats the dermis of the skin surface and triggers the natural healing process of the body along with improved collagen production. This is a restoration process and takes more than six months. This time is taken by the body to produce collagen.
