As the years go by, you may start to see your skin sag in places you wish it wouldn’t. Don’t let sagging skin get you down and affect your confidence. Many skin tightening procedures are currently available, each with their own pros and cons. Here are the top St Louis skin tightening procedures currently available for those looking to fix sagging skin.
Ultrasound waves are commonly used when checking on pregnant mothers. However, unknown to most, ultrasound waves are also used in a simple skin tightening treatment that produces great results. The ultrasound energy waves are used to renew collagen production in the treated areas. Collagen is often found below the skin’s surface where the energy waves can reach. Many popular treatments using ultrasound waves target areas around the face, neck, and chin. While this treatment option is fast and pain-free, you will not see results immediately.
For those looking for immediate results, surgical skin tightening treatments might be recommended for you. While surgical treatments can provide immediate results and treat more significant sagging, it is very invasive. These treatments require significant incisions that will leave scarring across any treated areas. Surgical treatments are recommended for post-childbirth tummy tucks, arm lifts, and lower body lifts. These treatments are also recommended for those who have lost a significant amount of weight. Expect several weeks for recovery with the invasiveness of this treatment.
For those looking for long-lasting change with a noninvasive procedure, radiofrequency is perfect for you. This incredible procedure also renews collagen production by using radiofrequency energy waves to heat up and contract the skin. BodyTite and FaceTite are two incredible treatments that can do just this while helping with fat reduction. The treatments can deliver 2/3 of the skin tightening with open surgical procedures with much faster recovery. You will experience virtually no pain during this quick procedure and be able to return to light activities right after. The only incision needed for these procedures is small and will be unnoticeable after a few days.
