Facial Skin Tightening
As you age, your body slows down production of collagen and elastin. This can cause your skin to become lax and dull. There are non-surgical facial tightening procedures that improve skin tone and texture and delay the need for surgery. You can receive younger-looking skin with minimal downtime and a low risk of potential side effects.
Non-Surgical Facial Skin Tightening Procedures
There are a few non-surgical facial tightening procedures available for you to consider. Ultrasound skin tightening heats up the outer surface layers to promote collagen production and firm up skin. The procedure takes under two hours with visible results in three months. Radiofrequency treatments also heat up the skin to boost collagen production. A series of treatments may be needed, with results appearing gradually over several months.
Radiofrequency treatments can be combined with intense pulsed light to treat skin at multiple levels. You can resume normal activities after these facial skin tightening procedures. There may be some redness, swelling or bruising that can be treated with ice packs and over-the-counter pain medications. Your plastic surgeon will give you special instructions to assist you in the recovery process.
Ideal Candidates for Facial Skin Tightening
Ideal candidates for facial skin tightening are looking to improve mild skin laxity, causing fine lines and wrinkles. Men and women with severe facial lines may need additional cosmetic procedures. Certain medical conditions that interfere with healing may make these treatments unsuitable for some individuals.
