There are several skin tightening treatments currently available on the market which can be found at your local cosmetic surgeon’s office. As technology continues to improve, so do available skin tightening procedures. No longer do you have to be “put under the knife,” as there are noninvasive procedures that provide incredible results and leave your body feeling great. Here is a look at the current best skin tightening treatments available:
No longer is ultrasound only used for pregnancy tests; it is now used in a recently developed alternative to skin tightening surgery. Ultrasound waves are given to the treated area—typically the neck, chin, or brow. As the energy waves go further into the many layers of the skin, it tightens up the skin, leaving you looking great. This procedure is noninvasive and can be easily administered. Also, the recovery time is very low, with most patients returning to everyday activities immediately following the treatment and more rigorous activities later that week.
Cosmetic surgery is still a popular option when it comes to skin tightening. More dramatic results can be achieved through skin tightening surgery such as tummy tucks, arm lifts, post-pregnancy surgeries, and many more. Due to the invasiveness of these skin tightening procedures, the recovery time can be significant and leave lasting scars. Consulting with your cosmetic physician prior to the operation is highly recommended so you know what to expect.
Radio frequency skin tightening can be either a noninvasive or a minimally invasive procedure that allows you to return to most activities right away; BodyFX is noninvasive and BodyTite is minimally invasive. We use BodyTite to contour your body while removing fat tissue to provide incredible results that have been proven in published studies to give nearly the skin tightening seen with open surgical procedures like thigh lifts and tummy tucks. Only a small incision is made, after which the fat tissue in the treated area is “melted” with radio frequency waves. Your skin’s collagen production will be boosted, leaving you with tighter skin. This quick and pain-free procedure is perfect for those looking to tone up and tighten their skin with minimal risk.
