Five Ways to Tighten Facial Skin without Surgery
“How can I tighten my facial skin without surgery?” is a frequently asked question at Advanced Laser Skin Care & Spa in the Madison Heights region.
Nothing more visibly “ages” a person than drooping skin on the face. But a variety of innovative technologies available t Advanced Laser Skin Care & Spa can assist in tightening facial skin! Our non-invasive laser and radiofrequency technologies and facial fillers offer facial skin tightening that can take years off your appearance.
What Causes Facial Skin to Sag?
Before we discuss how to tighten facial skin, it’s critical to understand why our skin droops and sags with age. Drooping face skin occurs as a result of three age-related factors: collagen loss, elastin loss, and fat loss.
As skin ages, it produces less of two critical proteins: elastin and collagen. Elastin is responsible for the skin’s elasticity – or its ability to “snap back” into place after being stretched. Collagen is made up of densely packed fibers that help maintain the skin’s structure and rigidity. Additionally, subcutaneous fat — fat located under the skin – helps maintain the face skin supple and taut.
While elastin, collagen, and facial fat naturally decrease with age, extrinsic factors such as gravity, genetics, sun exposure, environmental contaminants, cigarette smoke, and alcohol may all contribute to facial skin drooping as well.
5 Facial Skin Tightening Treatments
#1. Matrix RadioFrequency Skin Tightening
Over time, cumulative gravity, sun exposure, decreased collagen production and moisture loss all have an effect on our skin’s tightness. But Matrix Radiofrequency skin tightening can be used to tighten the skin, restoring the natural beauty and youthfulness to the face.
Matrix RF refines the skin’s overall texture while tightening, firming, and lifting. Soothing radiofrequency heat energy is delivered into the epidermal layers through controlled energy pulses. Matrix RF treatments can safely and effectively tighten skin on all skin types and places (excluding the eyelids and lips).
#2. Dermalinfusion for Skin Tightening
Dermalinfusion can also offer skin tightening benefits with a concentrated injection of nutrients into the skin. Following exfoliation, nutrient-rich serums penetrate deeply into the skin, assisting the skin’s natural capacity to create new, healthy collagen and elastin, resulting in youthful, supple skin.
#3. ReFirme Laser Skin Tightening
The ReFirme skin tightening treatment, which is powered by ground-breaking Elos technology, enables patients to appear younger and more refreshed — with no downtime. ReFirme skin tightening is a non-surgical procedure that allows patients to treat sagging brows, checks, jowls neck, and jawlines.
By increasing collagen production, the ReFirme skin tightening treatment can also significantly decrease fine lines and superficial wrinkles – in addition to tightening skin – leaving our Madison Heights area patients with firmer, smoother skin. After each treatment session, the effects of ReFirme skin tightening will become more apparent, with the greatest results being visible three to six months after the patient completes their skin tightening treatment plan.
#4. ThermiSmooth Skin Tightening
ThermiSmooth is a non-invasive, non-ablative radiofrequency skin tightening technique that gently tightens the skin with regulated heat energy through a specially developed hand piece.
The radiofrequency heat waves used by ThermiSmooth promote the skin’s natural collagen synthesis, which strengthens, thickens, and tightens skin on the face for a more youthful look.
#5. Facial Skin Tightening with Injectables
Our medical injectors also utilize a range of FDA-approved injectable treatments to replenish lost volume, and fill wrinkles and folds, visibly tightening facial skin. For rapid facial skin tightening without surgery or downtime, the so-called “liquid facelift” technique can provide remarkable results.
Precise, targeted injections of Juvéderm and other facial fillers may provide significantly tightened skin — and can last up to two years.
VOLUMA® XC — Juvéderm’s thickest formulation – may be used to give volume to a hollow or sagging cheek region, and has a two-year duration. VOLLURE XC is an injectable filler that may be used to plump and fill severe “marionette lines” around the nose and mouth. Even better, these results can last up to 18 months.
Our trained and knowledgeable medical injectors, can strategically place fillers to produce a “liquid face lift” effect that tightens facial skin and rejuvenates your appearance – with no downtime and no surgery.
