Skin Tightening Q & A
What are skin tightening treatments?
Skin tightening treatments are procedures and products with a goal of making your skin less loose and wrinkled. Even though your skin loosens naturally as you age and lose collagen and elastin, loose skin can make you look even older than you are or heavier depending on which parts of your body it affects.
To serve as many people as possible, Modern NewSkin offers more than one skin tightening treatment option. You should attend a consultation before you undergo treatments like these to make sure you’re a candidate and to identify the body areas you want to target.
Many people choose to target skin on their faces and necks since these areas have a major effect on your overall appearance. However, you can target many different areas with skin tightening, including your abdomen, knees, buttocks, thighs, and upper arms.
What are my options for skin tightening?
During your consultation, your provider recommends the skin tightening treatment or treatments that they find will be the most fitting for your degree of skin laxity, your general health, and other factors. They might recommend:
Thermage is a noninvasive radiofrequency treatment for skin tightening. The device delivers gentle, safe radiofrequency energy deep into your skin to stimulate the production of new firming collagen proteins.
Clear + Brilliant®
Clear + Brilliant is a nonablative laser treatment that promotes skin tightening with energy from a beam of light. The treatment exfoliates your uppermost layer of skin to make it smoother. In addition to minimizing wrinkles and lines, it can improve scars, uneven skin tone, and large pores.
skinbetter science® product line
Products by skinbetter science are high-end and include professional formulas that you can’t find at a pharmacy. These products can slow your skin’s aging by moisturizing it, promoting collagen production, and more.
Who should consider getting skin tightening treatments?
You should consider skin tightening treatments with lasers, radiofrequency, or topical products if you feel that your skin’s laxity affects your appearance and your confidence. Even if your skin is only noticeably loose or wrinkled in one area, you might feel self-conscious about its texture or the way it looks under your clothes.
Skin tightening treatments work best for mild-to-moderate skin laxity. They won’t halt the aging process, but they can temporarily make your skin look more youthful or stop your skin from gathering new age-related imperfections for a limited time. You can get skin tightening treatments regularly for long-term results.
