Sagging skin and wrinkles appear naturally as a body age. Elastin and collagen contribute to skin’s firmness and elasticity, and with time, skin loses the ability to produce them.
Today, various surgical and non-surgical procedures and treatments are used to tighten skin on the body or face. In addition, skin experts use various methods of lasers, ultrasounds, and radiofrequency. Although surgical and non-surgical procedures are, the skin tightening procedures should be performed only by experienced and skilled dermatologists.
Noa Hair has a specialized team of skin experts who can perform the best skin tightening treatments for both advanced and early skin aging or loosening.
We are here to tell you about the various skin tightening procedures. Let’s begin!
Skin tightening treatments
Noa Hair offers several anti-aging and skin tightening treatments designed and personalized according to a patient’s need, such as Botox and fillers, fractional lasers, vampire facials, face volumizers, etc.
Let us summarize the common skin treatment procedures. These procedures use energy that heats deeper into the skin and stimulates elastin and collagen production.
This skin tightening method uses micro-focused ultrasound that goes deep into the skin. The ultrasound can send heat up to 5 mm below the skin surface, lifting and tightening skin and reducing wrinkles.
The ultrasound skin tightening treatments can be done on the upper chest, neck, and face. The results can start showing by six months and require more than one visit.
RF (radiofrequency) treatment
While ultrasound skin tightening works deep into the skin to improve collagen production, radiofrequency treatment works on the skin’s outer layer, the epidermis. RF skin tightening treatments are FDA-approved and work on hands, body, neck, and face.
In some cases, skin experts use micro-needling with RF treatments to treat skin’s deeper layers.
The RF treatments can take up to six visits.
Laser skin tightening treatment
With laser skin tightening procedures, experts reach down to the deeper level into the skin and reach the dermis. Laser treatments are gaining popularity for their quick and desired results.
The laser skin tightening treatments are used commonly to treat loose or sagging skin of the upper arms and bellies.
Laser skin tightening treatments can take up to five visits.
IPL (intense pulsed light)
As the name hints, this treatment uses light for skin tightening. It uses light in multiple wavelengths to reach the skin’s deep layers.
IPL skin tightening methods are sometimes used with radiofrequency to target deeper skin layers.
The IPL treatments are useful for treating large areas of skin and many skin conditions. The intense pulsed light treatments require multiple visits.
Other skin tightening treatments
There are several non-surgical skin tightening treatments. Here are the most common ones –
– Botox is injected into muscles to keep them from contracting and make the skin look smooth. It can take several months to show results.
Soft tissue fillers
– This procedure involves injecting hyaluronic acid, collagen, and fat to reduce wrinkles and plump the skin.
OTC topical creams and ointments
– OTC (over-the-counter) topical ointments and creams can show mild improvements. Retinoid products like tretinoin, tazarotene, or adapalene can show good results, but these topical solutions generally take a few months to reduce wrinkles and improve fine lines.
