What are skin tightening procedures?
It is true that diet and exercise cannot remove sagging and loose skin caused by weight loss, aging, or pregnancy. But Stockton Dermatology offers skin tightening procedures that will help you get that taut and lean appearance back.
The skin loses its elasticity mainly because we lose collagen in the body–which is a normal effect of aging. Skin tightening procedures are generally aimed at removing the loose and sagging skin or finding ways to restore the lost collagen in the skin to make it appear tighter and healthier.
What Types Of Skin Tightening Procedures Are Available?
Skin tightening procedures that we offer at Stockton Dermatology are generally classified into non-surgical skin tightening procedures.
Surgery is not for everyone. There are those who prefer a non-invasive procedure if there was any alternative available. Fortunately, the development of cosmetic technology allows patients to undergo skin tightening procedures without any need to go under the knife.
The use of radio frequency technology is being widely used to help tighten the skin. Radio frequency is a type of electrical energy that works in tightening the skin by literally creating damage beneath the skin surface that triggers the natural production of collagen and results to tighter and healthier skin.
Laser Skin Tightening
Laser skin tightening is also a very popular skin tightening solution among our patients in Phoenix, AZ. This uses an infrared light source which tightens the skin by applying heat to the layers of the skin which results in the production of collagen and eventually skin tightening.
Patients in Phoenix, AZ who choose to undergo non-surgical skin tightening procedures would have to get several treatments before they can see the maximum effects.
