What’s the Right Skin Tightening Treatment for You?

When it comes to taking care of wrinkles and other fine lines, you have a variety of treatment options from which to choose. Skin tightening is available in many forms, and we offer a number of these different procedures from the comfort of our office. Take a look below to see how we can boost your appearance with the right skin tightening treatments:

Radio Frequency Skin Tightening

Wrinkles and fine lines do not target the face alone but can also impact our arms, legs, thighs, and abdomen. One of our most popular treatment options is radiofrequency skin tightening. This procedure uses high radio frequency to produce heat-induced contractions in your skin. Radiofrequency skin tightening is often noninvasive, so you do not have to worry about major incisions made on the body. Popular forms of radiofrequency skin tightening we have available include Forma and BodyTite. Each procedure will help you boost the collagen production in your skin so your skin looks better than ever. Radiofrequency skin tightening requires multiple sessions to see the full effect of the procedure.

Ultrasound Skin Tightening Treatments

Ultrasound skin tightening is similar to radiofrequency treatments but uses ultrasound technology instead and can target the face. The collagen and elastin production is increased and can be targeted around your neck, chin, and even brows. Most patients will only feel a slight twinge of discomfort following their treatment, but the procedure itself is painless.

Skin Tightening Surgery

More severe forms of loose and sagging skin cannot be treated effectively with radiofrequency skin tightening. The collagen boost in the treatment is simply not enough to create the tightening results you want to see. More significant options require skin tightening surgery. Any surgical procedure is going to be more invasive and require a longer recovery time. Skin tightening surgery options we currently have available include tummy tucks and arm lifts. These procedures remove significant loose skin to achieve the look you want. Patients will require a longer recovery period that can last for several weeks. Additionally, patients have some potential for scarring along the treated areas. While the risks are greater with a skin tightening surgery, the more dramatic results will help you feel great about the way your skin looks.
