What is Skin Tightening?

Skin tightening is a process of contracting loose skin without surgery. Plastic surgery has traditionally been the solution to skin laxity, but more non-surgical devices and treatments are available than ever. Many patients prefer non-surgical skin tightening because it comes with no downtime or incisions – however, our team can determine whether non-surgical skin tightening can achieve your goals or if you might be better suited to surgery.

What Causes Skin Laxity?

Skin laxity can have a couple of different causes. One cause is the process of aging. As you age, your body becomes less efficient at creating new collagen, the protein that gives your skin support and elasticity. As collagen breaks down, the skin begins to sag and succumb to gravity.

Another cause of skin laxity is weight fluctuations or pregnancy. As you gain weight or become pregnant, it can cause the skin to stretch and weaken. When the weight goes away, the stretched skin doesn’t always retract. This can leave behind puckered, folded, or loose skin.

What are My Treatment Options for Skin Tightening?

There are a variety of excellent options for non-surgical skin tightening. Our team can help you select the best technology for your goals during your consultation.

RF Microneedling

RF microneedling can help stimulate new collagen production by generating tiny wounds in the skin at the same time as administering radiofrequency energy. It can be used on the face and body for a “shrinkwrap” effect.

How Can I Maintain My Results from Skin Tightening Treatment?

The best way to maintain your results from skin tightening is by living a healthy and active lifestyle to prevent weight fluctuations. Additionally, our team can help you explore ways to prevent aging and collagen loss with at-home products. You can also return for maintenance treatments regularly to stimulate collagen and prevent the effects of aging. Our team will help you create a personalized schedule for your goals so you know when to return.
