Gravity has its way with your skin as your body ages. Your face marks this passage of time with drooping eyelids and looser skin around your jaws. Areas of skin that were once plump and firm get loose and saggy, making you look older.
Although this change is inevitable for everyone, skin tightening can reduce some of the effects of aging by rejuvenating your skin. The team at Lasting Impression Medical Aesthetics can help you achieve a younger look through a number of different skin tightening treatments, all designed to stimulate your skin to produce proteins that make it tight and firm.
Why does skin get loose?
By age 30, your body is producing less collagen, the protein that keeps skin firm and elastic. At the same time, fat becomes less evenly distributed; it begins to concentrate disproportionately in some areas –– such as your chin –– making your face look saggy.
As your facial muscles tug on the skin over years of facial expressions, wrinkles and creases form. These deepen depending on the way the fat moves underneath your skin.
What is skin tightening?
Skin tightening is a noninvasive, nonsurgical procedure that uses heat and light to combat the aging process. These treatments can stimulate the production of collagen in the skin and smooth away wrinkles by targeting the skin’s deeper layers.
Our team can perform skin tightening treatments almost anywhere on your body, and they work for people of all ages. Even young people can benefit from a preventive treatment — boosting collagen production before eventually losing the protein as they get older.
What types of skin tightening treatments are there?
Different nonsurgical treatments are available, and most require little to no recovery time. The type of treatment you might consider depends on the part of your body you want to address as well as the time you’re willing to invest.
At Lasting Impression Medical Aesthetics, we offer three different types of treatments: radiofrequency, ultrasound, and nitrogen plasma.
Profound is a radiofrequency-based aesthetic tool that stimulates collagen and elastin to diminish wrinkles and cellulite. You can see results after only one treatment.
BTL Exilis Ultra (radiofrequency + ultrasound)
Like Profound, BTL Exilis Ultra stimulates the production of collagen and elastin in your skin. Because it’s gentle, we can use it in different areas of your body, including:
- Around your eyes
- Neck and chest
- Under your chin
The procedure may require up to four treatments for best results, spaced out with a weekly interval between each treatment.
NeoGen PSR utilizes nitrogen energy to create plasma gas that heats up the outer and inner layers of your skin to stimulate collagen and elastin production. The duration of the treatment depends on the area of your body being treated, but you may only need one treatment. Results can last one year or longer.
If you’re looking for a cost-effective solution to loose skin that isn’t invasive or surgical, skin tightening treatments may be an option for you. To find out more about what treatments best fit your personal needs, request an appointment online or call Lasting Impression Medical Aesthetics today.
