Although it is perfectly normal to develop facial skin sagging at some point in our lives, it is still not very comforting to think that we are powerless to slow down or reverse this unwelcome development. The reality is that there are numerous treatment options when it comes to facial tightening. Many options do not even require surgery and can be performed over your lunch break.
Benefits of Non-Surgical Facial Tightening
The traditional facelift certainly has its place as a highly effective skin tightening procedure. Many patients, however, do not require such a drastic type of treatment. Non-surgical facial tightening procedures can offer excellent results without the need for surgery that can sometimes be expensive, involve complications, and require significant downtime.
Another key benefit of non-surgical facial tightening treatments and procedures is their ability to offer real results that appear quite soft and natural. Instead of the drastic changes that sometimes occur after traditional facelift surgery, you will simply appear like a younger version of yourself.
Facial Tightening with Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers are injectable substances that help to promote increased skin volume and reduce skin laxity. They offer the ability to target only areas of the skin that have begun to sag and lead to poor facial contours. Some common ingredients in dermal fillers are collagen, hyaluronic acid, and polylactic acid. Each dermal filler works somewhat differently to enhance facial volume and tighten skin. The exact type that you would respond best to can be determined at your initial consultation with us.
Although dermal fillers offer excellent results, your skin will continue to age normally both before and after your injections. The injected materials will also be gradually absorbed by your body, so you will require additional treatments in the future to maintain your improved facial contours.
Laser Facial Tightening
Laser skin tightening offers a non-surgical treatment option that causes your skin to tighten, enhancing your facial contours. We use a cosmetic laser to safely heat collagen under the surface of your skin. You should notice some immediate results following your laser facial tightening procedure, with additional results developing over the following months.
