Skin Tightening of the face and neck can deliver amazing results without the requirement of surgery or other invasive procedures. Skin tightening treatment can significantly reduce loose, sagging skin on the face and neck through the use of lasers and radiofrequency. Skin tightening treatments can take years off the appearance of your face and neck, boosting your confidence in the process.
Over the years, your skin loses collagen and elasticity which can lead to sagging skin that makes you look and feel older. If you’re not quite ready to turn to painful surgeries for results, laser and radiofrequency (RF) treatments could be the answer to changing the way you feel about your skin.
Non-surgical neck and facelifts have provided amazing results for thousands of patients. Laser and RF treatments on the face and neck can tighten skin and even reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. No matter which option you choose, you’ll know you’re in the hands of professionals at our offices.
Skin Tightening with Radiofrequency (RF)
Skin tightening of the face and neck with RF is a noninvasive experience with long-lasting results. Technology in the field of aesthetics has come a long way since the days when going under the knife was the only option. Our esthetician can now use a specialized machine that delivers focused radiofrequency energy to your problem areas.
Each area of the skin is treated with a pulse of the RF machine for about two to seven seconds. Because RF procedures use heat to trigger the natural healing response in your skin cells and tissue, you might experience slight discomfort during the procedure.
Skin tightening with Radiofrequency works best for patients with:
- Sagging skin on the cheeks
- Loose skin along the jawline
- Hanging skin and folds on the front of the neck
A typical skin tightening treatment session will last between 30-45 minutes. You might need repeated treatments between a week-long healing process, so talk to your doctor about the results you’d like to see.
Skin Tightening with Lasers
Skin tightening with lasers is usually performed with special fractional lasers. This is a non-ablative laser, meaning the laser is noninvasive and won’t destroy your skin. A fractional laser works by targeting sections of your skin with focused energy. This energy activates the healing response of your skin to produce collagen and elastin while tightening your skin’s appearance.
Fractional lasers avoid damage to the top layers of skin during a skin tightening session, meaning you experience less pain and require less recovery time. However, it is possible to experience swelling and mild discomfort following treatment. These symptoms can be mitigated with the use of hydrating moisturizers and ice packs for around 4-5 days following treatment.
Skin tightening with lasers on the face and neck work best for those who are struggling with:
- Sagging skin around the eyes
- Fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes
- Sagging or loose skin on the jawline and cheeks
- Loose skin or folds on the neck
Your experience with fractional lasers for skin tightening will most likely depend on your own skin’s ability to heal itself over time. Everyone heals differently, but you’re likely to see results after your first treatment. Depending on your goals, you might need up to 6 treatments to see full results.
