Want to get rid of those sagging jowls? So do the rest of us.
But if you’re not necessarily in the market for a face lift, you might want to know exactly what options are out there for you to tighten your skin.
Thankfully, a whole range of innovative and noninvasive treatments exist to help you with this problem. Here are just a few of them.
Radiofrequency energy may just be one of the best options out there.
By heating the collagen under the skin, not only does this lead to a tightening and firming effect–it also leads to collagen production.
Radiofrequency can be used effectively on both the face and the body.
Meanwhile, ultrasound treatments like Ultherapy have a similar effect.
Using sound waves instead of radiofrequency, collagen under the skin is boosted–because ultrasounds can penetrate the skin at different depths.
You might not associate microneedling with skin tightening. And alone, microneedling is more of a rejuvenation treatment.
But microneedling can be combined effectively with treatments like radiofrequency and laser light to get a doubly powerful effect.
Because microneedling really boosts the production of new collagen, while the radiofrequency leads to skin tightening, the two work in synergy.
Spillover Skin Tightening
Kybella melts fat away with dexoycholic acid while CoolSculpting freezes it dead: but both of these treatments, incidentally, cause the skin to tighten.
Particularly in the chin area. In fact the FDA itself just noted CoolSculpting’s submental skin tightening effect.
Overall, patients have a number of choices when it comes to tightening their skin — all with different advantages depending on their aesthetic goals.
