With age, the production of collagen and elastin begins to decrease. This leads to sagging and loose skin, along with the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Facelift is considered the gold standard for targeting these concerns. Undergoing surgery might not always be a comfortable option for many. When there is mild to moderate skin sagging, you can always consider non-surgical skin tightening facial Toronto. Treatments like Ultherapy, Radiofrequency treatment, laser treatment and micro-needling have increasingly become popular. They can enable collagen production in different layers of the skin. Here is how these different treatments can help you achieve tighter and smooth skin.
In recent times, there has been significant innovation in laser treatments. They can target various skin concerns and are a great option for anti-ageing. Undergoing 1 to 4 treatments can help achieve tighter, healthier and smoother skin. Laser treatments usually last for about an hour and is minimally invasive. During the treatment, the technician uses a hand-held device to guide the laser beam across the targeted area. The intensity of the beam is pre-defined by the surgeon. These infrared rays heat up the underlying skin surface to produce collagen. It, in turn, leads to a skin-tightening effect. Laser treatment has attractive advantages like minimal side effects and no downtime.
Who would’ve thought that ultrasound waves can target sagging and loose skin. Ultherapy is a unique non-surgical cosmetic treatment that can improve the elasticity and firmness of the facial skin. Just like the laser treatment, a hand-held device is used for delivering the waves in a controlled and precise manner. This makes the treatment safe and with low complications. Ultrasound waves can easily penetrate the deep layers of the skin that are usually accessible only during the surgery. During the treatment, the underlying tissues are tightened, and collagen production is stimulated. Though you will experience an immediate impact after the treatment, it still takes about 3 months for collagen to be developed. There is little downtime associated with it. Though you might experience swelling or redness, you can return to your routine if comfortable.
If looking for mild skin-tightening results, micro-needling is an excellent procedure to consider. A device with microneedles is rolled over the skin to create tiny holes. The skin around the holes remains unimpacted, which works to develop collagen and cause skin tightening. Microneedling can help you achieve radiant and smoother skin. It can also decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Radiofrequency energy when delivered can produce a skin-tightening effect. During the treatment, the desired area is heated which helps the production of collagen. The area targeted by RF treatment is different from the targeted area by Ultherapy. RF can be done on the face, neck, hands and body. The procedure is comfortable and with no downtime. It is a safe and suitable option for all skin types. Pairing it with IPL laser treatment can help achieve effective skin tightening results. It is a safe and suitable option for all skin types.
