Non-Surgical Skin Tightening Treatments

One of the consequences of aging is saggy skin. It is beyond doubt that you will experience this when you hit 40. The body’s level of collagen drops. You can’t help but watch the effect of the pull of gravity on your once firm skin as it loosens. But it doesn’t have to be that way anymore. At least not when skin tightening procedures dominate as safe and effective ways to reverse skin laxity.

  • Ultherapy is one of the most well-known treatments for skin tightening of the lower face, neck and chest. It utilizes ultrasound energy to tighten the skin. Dermatologists highly appreciate the action mode of the treatment as it lifts lax skin from within and fosters collagen regeneration. After the treatment and within a few weeks you will notice visibly younger-looking lift to the treated area.

  • Thermage radiofrequency is yet another fix for droopy skin. FDA approves the use of radiofrequency to heat the skin on the face, hands, neck and body. In addition, the procedure pays more attention to the epidermal layers to strengthen them, while triggering collagen production. A little discomfort during the procedure is all you may have to endure, and then you can reap optimal results.

  • Fractora combines microneedling with radiofrequency to get both anti-aging by reducing fine lines/wrinkles and skin tightening in one procedure.
