Skin tightening is a treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to create skin tightening effects. Treatments address the natural loss of collagen that occurs over time. Collagen serves to plump and smooth your skin, and you have lots of this natural padding during your youth.
As time passes, you gradually lose collagen. Without the same layer of padding, the skin begins to sag and pool, collecting into visible lines, folds, and wrinkles. Your body won’t produce much new collagen without prompting, which is where skin tightening comes into play.
The team at Aesthetic Surgery Centre & Medical Spa relies on the Elixis Elite™ treatment system for skin tightening treatments. This technology represents some of the most advanced research and development in the medical aesthetics industry.
The process works by triggering collagen remodeling, which basically means creating new collagen cells that form a layer of natural padding. Treatments generate heat in the deeper layers of your skin, and your body reacts with a swift healing response.
As the new collagen develops, your skin smooths out and becomes effectively tighter. Lines and wrinkles fade away, and features take on a more rounded appearance.
The Cynosure® Icon® treatment laser is also a wonderful option for skin tightening. This approach uses controlled light energy to prompt new collagen development. Microneedling is yet another treatment that offers skin tightening effects.
Once you see the results of skin tightening, you’ll want to know how to make the most of those effects. Protecting your skin from ultraviolet rays is a great place to begin, so find a high-quality sunscreen that works well with your skin and wear it daily.
Quality skin care products help your skin remain properly hydrated throughout the day and remove dirt, debris, and excessive oils. Ask your provider to help you create a skin care system centered on your unique needs.
