Non-Surgical Options for Tightening Skin
Everyone knows a surgical “lift” is used to treat loose or sagging skin, but not everyone wants to have surgery to restore the firmness of their skin. While a face lift, neck lift, brow lift or eye lift may be the only ways to remove and elevate skin, there are options to tighten skin without surgery. When skin first begins to lose its elasticity, there are procedures that can enhance collagen and elastin to give skin a tighter, firmer look for a more youthful appearance.
Profound Effects of Radiofrequency
Radiofrequency or RF can impact the cells of the skin, stimulating them to create collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, all of which are crucial components for youthful, firm skin. When RF treatments are used on skin that is losing its firmness, often in the lower face, jaw and neck areas, the impact can be profound. The skin can rejuvenate, becoming tighter and firmer, lifting the face and helping it appear years younger.
RF treatments are delivered through tiny needles to the skin. The right depth and heat is needed to stimulate the cells for a skin tightening effect. To get the best results, a plastic surgery clinic with professionals who understand the biological components of the face and skin should perform the procedure. While the results are not immediate, as the collagen and other elements are released, the skin tightens and improves, usually over several weeks.
If you are interested in looking younger, but you are not ready to consider a surgical lift, RF treatments may be the right option for you. Contact a plastic surgeon that offer RF treatments to learn more about the procedure and whether it is a good option for your skin.
