Take a quick look in the mirror. Is your skin young, tight, and vibrant or has it lost a little of its natural elasticity? As we age we lose collagen and elastin, two substances found in the skin that keep it looking taut and youthful. Further adding to the problem is the fact that facial volume decreases as the body ages. Your once youthful skin is left looking tired, sagging, and loose.
What Can Be Done about Facial Aging?
While sagging skin isn’t something to celebrate, being able to reverse it certainly is. Skin tightening treatments can correct mild to moderate cases of skin laxity. With as few as one tightening treatment and possibly some dermal fillers you turn back the clock and restore the young and fresh look you once enjoyed when you looked in the mirror. If you’re experiencing facial changes due to aging, come in to Beatitude and see what we can do for you. Sooner is better than later. While the results from these skin tightening treatments can be remarkable, they typically work best before severe signs of aging have set in.
Skin Tightening Treatments at Beatitude- What Are My Options?
Here at Beatitude we focus on bringing our patients the best options for non-invasive, non-surgical skin tightening. Dr. Chang has sought out several of the latest treatment devices available and is proud to offer these treatments at Beatitude. When you come in to see us about skin tightening we’ll carefully analyze your skin and create a custom tightening regimen that will target your specific problem areas. Let’s take a quick look at some of the tightening treatments Dr. Chang may recommend:
- Thermage– Often called the “lunchtime facelift”, Thermage can reduce the signs of aging in just one treatment. After your initial visit you likely won’t need to return for a maintenance treatment in over a year. Thermage works by stimulating your body’s natural collagen production and by tightening skin using heat generated through radiofrequency energy. You’ll see some results immediately with continued improvement over the next few months.
- Venus Freeze– Venus Freeze treatments can tighten skin from within with no pain and no side effects. We’ll start you off with a series of 6 weekly treatments and quarterly follow up visits afterwards for maintenance. This treatment uses a combination of magnetic pulse and radio frequency energy to stimulate collagen remodeling and skin tightening.
- Ultherapy– For skin tightening around the eyes, face, neck, and other areas. Dr. Chang often recommends Ultherapy, the only device FDA approved for lifting tissue. This treatment uses micro-focused ultrasound to achieve results by working deep into the layers of the skin without harming the outer layers. It also naturally stimulates collagen production.
In addition to these skin lifting and tightening treatments Dr. Chang may recommend dermal fillers to help fill in and correct facial volume loss.
