Skin tightening treatment
Sun exposure, environmental pollution, lifestyle, and aging are some of the reasons for sagging skin. The excellent news is you can achieve radiant, smooth, and youthful-looking skin through various surgical options, as well as non-invasive and minimally-invasive procedures. Skin-tight laser treatments are quite popular for the face, stomach, neck, and underarms.
Skin-tight laser treatment
One of the skin-tight treatment options is the use of infrared light laser. Typically, the laser is hot to heat the collagen beneath the skin, constricting the protein for firmer skin. The non-invasive treatment targets fine lines and wrinkles and applies to any body part, including the tummy and upper arms. Depending on the severity of the saggy skin, you may need three to five treatments for the best outcome. It is advisable for those between 30 to 65 years and a preventive measure to lose skin.
Laser resurfacing is a better skin-tight face treatment choice. Other facial tightening solutions are Dermal fillers, Hyaluronic Acid fillers, Thermage, Ultrasound therapy, and Sculptra.
Surgical procedures are the most effective with significantly noticeable results and include eyelid surgery, facelift, or a neck lift. However, there is extended downtime.
Jaw tightening treatments
This is the use of retinoid creams that help with many other skin conditions. The doctor may recommend this treatment option, when you do not want to go through laser treatment.
Non -surgical solutions to a well-defined jawline include:
- Dermal fillers
- Surgical threads
- Neurotoxins to the masseter muscles
- Injecting a fat-melting agent called the Kybella to the neck or chin
Surgical options are recommended for patients with moderate to large amounts of fat and loose skin around the neck and jawline. It includes neck liposuction, neck lift, and the use of radiofrequency energy.
Whether you choose a skin-tight laser or surgical option, one thing is for sure; you can achieve your desired skin. The catch is selecting the best procedure for you, which requires the consultation of a certified, qualified, and experienced cosmetic plastic surgeon.
