Do skin tightening devices really work?
While every skin tightening device varies in terms of overall effectiveness, clinical research has shown that they really do work for the vast majority of the time! In general, skin tightening devices help to tighten and firm up the skin by using various types of energy to stimulate your body to increase its production of collagen and elastin.
Tight and firm skin depends on collagen and elastin, which are two fibrous proteins that are essential in both wound healing and generating new connective tissue anywhere in your body, including the skin, bones, muscle, and ligaments. However, our body naturally produces less collagen and elastin as we age, causing our skin to sag and lose elasticity. In this way, skin tightening devices provide a tangible solution to the effects of aging on our skin!
What is the best skin tightening treatment?
There are several different kinds of skin tightening treatments, which makes it challenging to determine which one is the best! In reality, the best skin tightening treatment likely varies from patient to patient, especially when diverse skin types, conditions, and a patient’s treatment goals are taken into account. With that in mind, the following is a list of skin tightening treatments that have proven to be highly effective:
- Laser skin tightening or resurfacing
- Radiofrequency therapy
- Radiofrequency with microneedling
- Ultherapy, or ultrasound therapy
When you come to Advanced Aesthetics & Med Spa for skin tightening treatment, our board-certified physicians can assess your skin type and take your treatment goals into account in order to determine the best possible skin tightening treatment for you!
How long does skin tightening last?
Depending on the type of skin tightening procedure you opt for, results from skin tightening treatment can last anywhere from six months to two years with the right skincare routines and procedural expertise. While many patients experience satisfactory results after just one treatment, others may require multiple sessions to experience the full effects of skin tightening treatment. Your provider can provide you with instructions on how to properly care for your skin and if a follow-up appointment will be beneficial to you.
