With aging and sometimes weight loss comes loose skin and the effects of gravity on the skin. A jiggle here a jiggle there and without knowing it you are in front of the mirror pulling back your skin with your hands temporarily for a second or two you see and wonder how great you would look without all that loose skin.
There are various ways to get treatment for sagging skin and here are the top 5;
Ultrasound skin therapy is done using a treatment called ultherapy. Ultherapy uses sound waves which help in collagen production resulting in firm skin. Depending on how the energy is focused ultherapy is capable of penetrating different depths of skin. It is because of this ability to go past the superficial layer of skin and go deeper without burning the inside of the skin that makes it great. It mostly works on tightening the brow, chin and neck. Results are visible within two to six months after the procedure and they are better when more sessions are done. This can be discussed with your cosmetologist.
Radiofrequency energy causes the collagen under the skin’s surface to contract by heating it up and at the same time aiding in the natural production of more collagen. Collagen is quite essential to the skin as it helps in maintaining a healthy youthful skin. This treatment works well on jowls and turkey necks.
The process is done from the inside in which means that a wand which causes the collagen to contract and tighten goes on top of the skin. Another wand which liquifies the fat goes underneath the skin and a tiny puncture is made on the skin for accessibility to the deeper level of the skin. The whole process is known as radio-frequency assisted lipolysis. The liquefied fat is usually removed. Results can be visible after about one to three months. You may also need to wear a compression for about four to five days and care for the wound.
Laser resurfacing not only tightens the skin but also gets rid of fine lines, wrinkles age spots and other dark spots on the skin. This type of skin tightening treatment gives the fastest results among all the skin tightening treatments because you will start to see results within 2 weeks only. However it has some downtime of about five to seven days as you heal.
It is now common to combine multiple techniques in one device for optimal results of skin tightening. An example is the Vivace treatment which begins with microneedling and gradually adds radiofrequency and laser light. These procedures stimulate collage production hence over time your skin tightens and becomes smooth and firmer. This procedure is very comfortable and has no downtime. It is best suited for the face, neck and chest although it can be used on other areas of the body as well such as the abdomen, knees and hands. The number of treatments ranges from about three to six.
Surgical skin tightening is the most effective procedure when it comes to skin tightening. No other treatment for skin tightening can be compared to a tummy tuck, arm lift or lower body lift. It is mostly done for patients who have excess skin after a huge weight loss or after childbirth. You however have to prepare for some major downtime which happens with all surgical procedures.
