Are you starting to notice the effects of loose skin on your face or body? If so, you might want to look into the benefits of non-surgical skin tightening. This is especially the case if you are concerned over the risks that are associated with undergoing a surgical procedure like a facelift. These procedures are typically done under general anesthesia. In addition, there is also a period of downtime that is necessary for recovery before the individual can get back to normal living. These concerns can be alleviated when you opt for non-surgical skin tightening.
Non-surgical skin tightening works by targeting the conditions that caused the skin to become loose in the first place. The skin will start to loosen over time as the level of collagen in it begins to drop. Collagen is a substance that is found in the dermis, or the layer beneath the surface. It is a protein that is naturally produced by the body. Its purpose is to help tissue to stick together and to provide fullness to the skin. The amount of collagen that the body produces does not remain constant through all phases of life. As you start to age, collagen production decreases. This naturally leads to a loosening of the skin as a result of less protein to keep it tight. Loose skin will necessarily cause lines and wrinkles to form.
Non-surgical skin tightening works by stimulating the skin to produce extra collagen. Doing so will return the substance to levels that more closely resemble what they were in previous years when the skin was tight. As the collagen grows over the following months, the skin will tighten and the wrinkles will disappear accordingly.
Loose skin will also cause sagging around the jowls. Restoring fullness through collagen growth can help with this issue as well. If you have sagging skin that has not reached the level at which you would consider it extreme, non-surgical skin tightening may be right for you. Our specialist can help you choose the right therapy to bring you the most favorable results.
