What types of treatments exist for Skin Tightening?

As we age, skin can sag and droop. But technology offers us new solutions to slow down the signs of aging. Previously the most effective solutions for sagging skin were temporary treatments like over-the-counter products like Retinol, Hyaluronic Acid, or Collagen. The next step up from that is cosmetic injectables and fillers that can temporarily reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles. And of course, for a permanent solution, surgery was an option for the face, and body lifts continue to be effective solutions for dealing with excess or saggy skin. 

 However, as technology evolves, new solutions and treatments are emerging to tighten loose skin. For example, ultrasound skin tightening is a recent development that can tighten the skin on your face, neck, and upper chest, reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

 Radiofrequency (RF) therapy is another popular choice, allowing a practitioner to use a handheld device and trigger collagen production. This highly effective treatment has been FDA approved to treat the face, neck, body, and hands. 

Laser treatments are still popular skin tightening treatments but have proven to be more effective on somebody types like the belly and upper arms than other areas.

 When deciding on which skin tightening treatment is best for your body, the best decision you can make is to contact a reputable Med Spa and discuss your treatment options with them. Let them examine the areas you’d like to have treated and allow them to design a custom treatment plan to provide you with your optimal results. At LUX, we care about our patients and want them to have the best results possible. That’s why we’re highly selective about which technologies we invest in. We only work with the best.

Why RF Skin Tightening is the best

RF skin tightening is a safe and highly effective way to eliminate fat and tighten the skin. This technology works by stimulating the structures under the skin and creating heat. This heat causes specific targeted and controlled damage-causing fat cells to be damaged beyond repair and eliminated. At the same time, collagen and elastin undergo a process of degradation, causing the complex collagen matrix within your skin to shrink and contract. The result is that the skin tightens and lifts to provide a more youthful appearance. 

 After undergoing the treatment, your body begins the healing process just as it would after any cells are damaged. Fibroblast cells inside the skin’s deepest layers spring into action producing new collagen and elastin fibers, effectively remodeling the skin’s surface. This process improves the skin’s elasticity, effectively erases lines and wrinkles, tightens and firms the tissues, and enhances the skin’s overall texture and volume. 

 Accent Prime is a product of the prestigious Alma Laser company that sets the gold standard for cosmetic lasers and products. They produce the best of the best, which we want to provide for our patients. Book your consultation today to learn more about how this impressive technology could benefit your aesthetic.
