SkinTightening & Lifting

What is Skin Tightening & Lifting?

To have supple and youthful skin 24/7, isn’t that the dream? Because the more days you spend baked under the sun, exposed to pollution, stress, and just being alive and exposed to gravity, your skin tends to appear more saggy from all the movements. But not to worry, because there are nonsurgical skin tightening treatments available for you. Essentially these treatments help tighten and life the skin that’s gotten loose and also stimulates the bottom layers of the skin to produce more collagen.

What Is It & How It's Done

There are 2 types of treatments, the in-office procedure which is done by a trained specialist or at-home devices which you can use to apply the treatment on yourself. In-office treatments come in either Radiofrequency or IPL. Radio frequency uses radio waves to nudge the areas of your skin that need tightening. These treatments are done with a machine attached to a hand-held device that your chosen specialist will then pass back and forth on the area you’re trying to tighten. Anesthesia is not needed for this treatment and there is also no downtime post-treatment.

A notable difference you can expect from IPL is the pulsing sensation you will feel as your trusted specialist pasess the device back and forth to your chosen area for treatment. An at-home option you can do is ultrasound skin tightening. This treatment utilizes ultrasound waves that go deep into the farther layers of your skin to stimulate collagen production.

But regardless of which process you opt for, the goal remains the same to bring out a more vibrant and youthful you!

What to look forward to

While the at-home devices are more handy, convenient, and cost-efficient, the results are also not nearly as notable as when you visit your skin specialist. So if you’re looking to only tighten a very small portion like perhaps your chin or the sides of your face, the at-home options may be workable. However if your areas for treatment need a little more support, then it’s time to pay your skin specialist a visit.
