The skin loses elasticity as you get older due to various factors, including lower levels of collagen and elastin. On the face, this can result in lines, wrinkles and sagging skin that can make you look older than you feel. Not all aging issues need surgery – many people with aging skin can benefit from minimally-invasive skin tightening treatments. At Precision Medical Specialists, we can help you rejuvenate your face and neck with skin tightening treatments at our facility in Wellington, FL.
Skin tightening treatments work by using heat energy to target cells in the skin. This is a non-invasive procedure that uses a handheld device to direct energy into the skin in the desired areas. The heat does not damage the skin cells but does cause a healing reaction that stimulates collagen production. Over several weeks and months after treatments, the skin becomes firmer and tighter, more like youthful skin. Lines and wrinkles can diminish, and the face can appear more taught and refreshed. While skin tightening treatments cannot remove excess skin, they can be used in the beginning stages of sagging skin to restore a firmer appearance.
Non-Invasive Facial Skin Tightening
Skin tightening treatments are not painful or invasive. A slight warming sensation may be felt, but it is not uncomfortable, and there is no downtime after the procedure. Most patients will require a series of treatments to get the results they desire. With each session, more collagen is produced, and the skin is rejuvenated closer to its more youthful appearance. Not only is skin firmer, but the tone and texture can also improve with the treatments.
Skin tightening treatments work well to firm sagging cheeks, jowls and the neck area. It can also be used on the chest for crepey or looser skin. While skin tightening does not replace lift procedures for removing excess skin, it can be beneficial in the early stages of aging when skin is losing its elasticity.
