There are a lot of people out there who are unsatisfied with their appearance, but they do not want to try any invasive cosmetic procedures. They are dealing with fine lines, wrinkles, saggy skin and other problems that reveal their true age. However, the idea of going under the knife and getting a facelift or even injecting a dermal filler or another product into their skin does not appeal to them. Their cosmetic problems may not be that advanced, or they may simply get a queasy feeling thinking about what cosmetic surgery or certain products would do to them. Also, they don’t like the idea of any negative side effects that they may experience, perhaps being completely dissatisfied with the results of an invasive procedure.
Non-surgical skin tightening is a procedure that many have turned to when they would like to enjoy younger-looking skin, but they do not want to go through an invasive procedure. Skin tightening is a non-invasive procedure that uses light energy to counteract the effects that the passing of time and gravity have had on your skin. It encourages the body to naturally heal itself, which drastically improves a person’s appearance. Skin tightening can be used to effectively and gently lift the skin and smooth out wrinkles.
Some individuals have heard that skin tightening can replace a facelift. This is not true. Individuals who use skin tightening may not experience the exact same results that individuals who have had a facelift experience. However, skin tightening is a great alternative to a facelift. It is non-invasive and treats deeper layers of the skin.
One of the main reasons why skin tightening works is because light energy is directed deep beneath the layers of the skin. This heat regenerates collagen. Collagen is what is needed to help a person’s skin continue to look young and fresh.
Besides the fact that skin tightening is a non-surgical procedure, it also does not use any kind of fillers, toxins or creams. This means that a person does not have to worry about any negative side effects that could come as a result of allergies to a product.
Many have wondered how long skin tightening treatment takes. This is going to depend on the area that is treated. For the most part, patients will come in and have their face and neck treated at the same time. This treatment usually takes about an hour or more.
