If your skin is starting to sag and aging faster than you are, you may be feeling overwhelmed and wondering what options are available for tightening your skin. Fortunately, there are several non-surgical treatments that provide very impressive skin tightening results.
Skin Tightening: What are my Options?
SkinTyte BBL (Broadband light)
SkinTyte BBL is a revolutionary treatment that uses infrared light technology to enhance the elasticity of the skin.
Loose skin is a sign that the body is not producing enough collagen which is needed to keep the skin smooth and firm. SkinTyte BBL stimulates the production of collagen by deep heating the dermis, causing existing collagen fibers to contract. The heat also triggers the body’s natural healing process, resulting in the creation of new collagen.
SkinTyte is a completely non-invasive procedure that treats mild to moderate skin laxity.
ProFractional Laser Therapy
ProFractional laser therapy is another treatment that stimulates collagen to tighten and tone the skin. It also treats signs of aging such as wrinkles, fine lines, and volume loss.
ProFractional lasers use the power of fractional laser energy to selectively treat microscopic sections deep within the skin, causing the body to make new collagen. The treated areas are surrounded by healthy skin that helps to accelerate recovery, so there is very little downtime.
There may be some mild redness and skin sensitivity immediately after treatment, but the skin should heal completely within a few days. The skin will gradually become tighter and firmer in the following weeks as the collagen fibers rebuild and grow (read more).
Which Treatment Is Right For You?
The skin tightening treatment that’s right for you will depend on the extent of your skin laxity as well as your aesthetic goals.
