Skin Tightening Q & A
What Causes Loose Skin?
Your body produces proteins called collagen and elastin that keep your skin elastic, firm, and supple. As you get older, your body’s production of these elements naturally decreases, which causes your skin to sag and fine lines and wrinkles to form. This can make you feel and appear older and more tired, especially when it occurs around your eyes and mouth.
The experts at SkinMD offer a number of services that help to rejuvenate your skin and restore your youthful appearance.
What Skin Tightening Treatments are Available?
The SkinMD team is highly skilled at treating sagging skin through both invasive and noninvasive skin-tightening approaches. As part of a thorough consultation, the team discusses which technique can best help you achieve your goals.
- Facelift: A face-lift is a surgical procedure that involves removing excess tissue and “lifting” the skin of the neck, chin, brow, forehead, or eyes to tighten and rejuvenate your complexion.
- Ultherapy: This approach tightens the skin using methods that encourage collagen production and does not require cutting, tissue removal, or a long recovery.
How does Ultherapy Work?
SkinMD proudly offers Ultherapy, an FDA-approved, noninvasive technique that uses ultrasound technology to improve and tighten skin. During the treatment, heat generated by ultrasonic waves stimulates the production of collagen. This takes place at the most foundational layer, without disrupting the surface of the skin.
Ultherapy works especially well to address:
- Early signs of aging
- A lowered brow line
- Loose skin on the neck
- Sagging skin under the chin
- Lines and wrinkles on the chest
Full results are typically seen around 2-3 months after your treatment.
What are the advantages of Ultherapy?
If you’re interested in improving the appearance of sagging skin but aren’t ready to commit to a surgical procedure, Ultherapy may be a great option for you.
Ultherapy offers the following benefits:
- It does not require sedation
- Sessions only take 60-90 minutes
- The treatment costs far less than surgery
- No downtime is necessary
- Results last for years
