The first step towards achieving a tighter and younger looking skin is to find the right treatment system. In the past, most of the skin tightening treatments that are available in the market today were focused on the neck and head area. It was only with the advancement of technology that people started searching for treatments that can be used on the face as well. It became obvious that people want to have a skin that is both younger and tighter.
Skin tightening around the face is now becoming one of the hot topics that the media is talking about. You see it being featured in many news programs including the Oprah Winfrey show. People are now starting to understand the importance of the collagen and elastin in their body. The treatment involves the use of a machine that sends radiofrequency energy into the tissues. This energy is carried to the skin through the skin cells and improves the production of collagen and elastin.
The basic idea behind this procedure is that the body can replace the lost collagen and elastin if it is exposed to enough amounts of this protein throughout our lives. Collagen and elastin are the two essential proteins needed for healthy and elastic skin. One reason why the skin starts to sag and wrinkle is because the level of these two proteins reduces with age. Another good thing about this treatment is that there are no risks associated with it. There are only a few risks such as allergic reactions and scarring.
If you undergo this procedure you will have a little scarring which is nothing compared to what you would experience if you leave this procedure until you are well into your fifties or sixties. The results are seen after about three months. The results are very obvious and there will be no doubt about the results. These procedures are done by injecting collagen and elastin directly into the skin. It is a controlled process, meaning that you can increase or decrease the amount that is being injected in your body.
Laser skin tightening is a newer technology, and it is being used more frequently. A laser is used to treat areas around the eye. This treatment is quite effective and it is also less painful than any other treatment. The laser heats up the area and it is burned, which helps to tighten the area. This process is temporary and the face will return to its normal shape after a few weeks.
Some people also call this neck lift but this term is sometimes used interchangeably with the procedure benefits that it brings. Basically, it refers to a procedure that is done on your neck. This procedure benefits your neck by giving it a youthful look without any noticeable scarring. The neck lift is most often performed on those who have droopy necks because of excessive aging.
