Five Non-Invasive Approaches to Skin Tightening

Skin tightening is one of the highly requested cosmetic procedures for dealing with sagging skin on the belly, neck, face, hands and chest. We have found that many patients are not keen to undergo surgery, so they opt for non-invasive procedures. If you are looking for Wildwood skin tightening procedures to liberate you from sagging skin, you can choose the following non-invasive solutions at NUWA WORLD:

Radiofrequency (RF) therapy

If you prefer radiofrequency therapy, the doctor will use a handheld device to transmit heat into the skin to stimulate collagen production. RF is safe to treat any part of your body with loose skin, including the face, hands, and neck. This procedure focuses on the epidermis, which is the outer layer of your skin.

Treating the deeper layers of skin will require a combination of radiofrequency therapy RF and microneedling. Microneedling or collagen induction therapy entails pricking the skin with small disinfected needles, thus creating tiny wounds that spur the body to produce elastin and collagen. The aftereffect is leaving your skin looking youthful. Patients can expect to see changes after the second treatment, and sometimes, it may take up to six rounds of treatment. We advise patients to maintain a proper skincare routine so these changes can last for several years. 

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)

Intense pulsed light involves sending many wavelengths of light to the deeper layers of your skin. Your attending doctor will discuss combining IPL with radiofrequency for best results. IPL helps when treating a large surface area and patients who may have different skin conditions. While this treatment is becoming increasingly popular for skin tightening, it is not ideal for people with heavily pigmented skin tones.

Thread lifts

Beauty treatments like wearing masks for several hours can make the skin lose elasticity. We highly recommend thread lifts for patients who wish to correct this problem and rejuvenate their faces without undergoing surgery.

PDO threads are inserted underneath the skin to stimulate the production of collagen and subcutaneous fibrotic connective tissues. These tissues become sturdier and hence no more sagging skin. This procedure is beloved for its noninvasive nature and the short healing time compared to extensive surgical treatments. Thread lifts are also safe when performed by an experienced professional, and the results are long-lasting.

Ultrasound skin tightening

With the ultrasound method, a doctor will use a micro-focused ultrasound to transmit heat into the deeper layers of your skin. Usually, they target up to 5 millimeters below the top layer. The heat works by tightening and lifting the skin on the neck or face and reducing wrinkling. 

Laser treatment

The doctor will use handheld lasers to transmit heat into the deeper layers of your skin to reach the dermis layer, which sits far beneath the epidermis. If you are struggling with loose skin around the belly area, perhaps after significant weight loss, laser treatment is ideal. Depending on the amount of sagging skin present, you may require three to five treatments before seeing desirable results.

Skin tightening solutions are all the rage, and you are not constricted to surgical procedures. The above solutions are quicker than surgery, and they come with fewer risks of complications. Schedule your consultation with your dermatologist at NUWA WORLD to regain your youthful appearance.
