As we age, the signs of aging become more apparent due to the decline in collagen production. Collagen gives skin its elasticity, and as its production decreases, the skin loses its ability to remain firm and plump.
Today, we are fortunate to have access to technology that can address skin issues and help us achieve a youthful, rejuvenated look. While surgery was once the preferred method for skin tightening, advancements in technology have made it possible to choose from a variety of non-invasive skin tightening options.
At Bella Sante, we have the answers to help with your skin concerns, specifically when it comes to skin tightening.
Today, we'll explore the efficiency of skin tightening treatments for addressing specific aging concerns. We will also cover whether age plays a role in the effectiveness of these treatments in reversing the signs of aging.
All Things Skin Tightening and How It Works
Non-invasive skin tightening treatments typically deliver targeted energy to the deeper layers of the skin, increasing collagen and elastin production. As a result, skin tone and texture are improved over time.
Other Benefits of Skin Tightening Include:
Little to no downtime needed.
Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.
Improved overall skin complexion.
Relatively quick treatment – typically 1hr or less.
Results can last up to a few years.
A range of skin tightening treatments are available that address different skin issues, and they are generally safe for both males and females with all skin types. One question that remains is whether the treatments are time sensitive.
Am I a Good Candidate for Non-Surgical Skin Tightening?
The ideal time to start skin tightening therapy varies among individuals and can be affected by factors such as weight loss, pregnancy, etc. The decline in collagen production begins in the mid-20s, while the decrease in elastin starts in the mid-30s. For most people, their mid-30s are a suitable time to start skin tightening treatments. However, our skin-tightening patients can range in age from 30 to 65, as positive outcomes can be achieved within that age range.
Although the results may not be as impressive, skin-tightening treatments can still provide benefits even later in life. If a person has pronounced signs of aging, they may need a combination of treatments, such as fillers, lasers and non-surgical sculpting, to get the desired results.
For example, someone over 50 with deep wrinkles may need to address facial volume and symmetry with these additional treatments.
Recommendations for skin tightening treatments vary for each client and their specific goals.
Next, we will briefly overview some of the top treatments available at Bella Sante.
