To tackle saggy skin and look younger, people choose skin tightening treatment.;

Skin Tightening Procedures

Before Procedure

The doctor will prepare a pretreatment plan and take a detailed medical history. He may also recommend physical examination tests to analyze fitness for the treatment. Before the procedure, one must:

01. Avoid smoking for at least 6 weeks before the procedure

02. Stop taking aspirin or other anti-inflammatory drugs

03. Do not apply any topical skin products

04. Stay hydrated before and after the procedure

05. Arrange for a family member or friend to drive you home post-treatment

The provider will brief you about the procedure that is to be done. Depending on the requirement, the doctor may choose to perform any one procedure of skin tightening. The different types of skin tightening treatments are:

01. Ultrasound Skin Tightening - In these types of procedures, focused ultrasound energy is used, which heats skin up to 5mm deep. This helps in collagen production and makes the skin firmer. It is the best option for older patients with a desire for a facelift without surgery and for younger patients who want to avoid skin laxity. The treatments take about 30 to 90 minutes.

There may be temporary discomfort during the process. The side effects are mild, including bruising, redness, and numbness. The results are visible within 2 to 3 months and can last for a year.

02. Laser Skin Tightening - It is a unique cosmetic treatment that helps to improve skin appearance by tightening the skin. It is a minimally invasive non-surgical procedure in which an infrared light source is used. The results of this procedure are immediately visible.

Eye protection is used during the treatment and an air blower is used. This procedure promotes the absorption of collagen by the skin.

03. Radiofrequency (RF) Treatments - In this treatment, the skin is heated to increase collagen production. This treatment targets epidermal layers of the skin to achieve smoother and firmer skin. It is an effective process for tightening and smoothing skin in older patients and delaying the requirement of surgical lift in younger patients. It can be used to treat the neck, face, body, and hands, and is safe for all types of skin. These days surgeons are combining this treatment with micro-needling - known as RF micro-needling. It combines the benefits of micro-needling and radiofrequency to increase collagen production and elastin.

This new technology treats deeper layers of skin and requires 2 to 6 treatments for desired results. The results are visible gradually, which improves in months.

04. Intense pulsed light (Velashape) - In this process, intense pulsed light and radiofrequency waves are combined and used to heat deep layers of skin, which triggers the natural healing process and collagen production. The use of intense pulsed light helps to treat multiple skin conditions and a large amount of skin, while radiofrequency focuses to treat deep layers of skin. There is no need for any anesthesia to perform this procedure.

Post-procedure results will appear gradually, however, a series of treatments are required to get optimal results.

05. Plasma Skin Tightening - As the name suggests, in this nonsurgical cosmetic procedure plasma is used to tighten skin and improve skin laxity. The results of this procedure are permanent but the skin will age over time. The recovery period post this procedure is 7 days.

In this procedure, a pen-like device is used to discharge a high-frequency targeted electric current to the skin. This creates micro-injuries in the skin layer, which increases fibroblast activity, stimulates tissue regeneration, and helps in tissue tightening. It may be used to treat scars on the skin, aging signs, seborrheic keratosis, and wrinkles. Below given is recorded facial tightening improvements after this procedure:

01. 35% after the first session

02. 40% after two sessions

03. 58% one month after three sessions

04. 68% three months after three sessions, and it keeps improving for 6 months.

It is a good option for all skin tones and skin types. You may not be a good candidate for this procedure if your skin has:

01. Sores in the targeted area

02. Autoimmune disease

03. Uncontrollable diabetes

04. Scleroderma
