Aging slows down collagen and elastin production, which are responsible for making the skin stay plump, smooth, youthful, and firm. This results in wrinkles, fine lines, and thinning skin. Exposure to the sun can also damage the skin, as do some chemicals found in the face and body lotions.

Woman at different stages of the aging process.

There are many ways of rejuvenating the skin, including surgical and non-surgical procedures. Some people are hesitant when choosing surgical skin tightening procedures (as they are invasive commitments), making non-invasive treatments more popular, as evidenced by the 200 percent rise since 2000.

Why Should I Consider Non-surgical Skin Tightening?

Women and men are experiencing many benefits when it comes to non-surgical skin tightening. Some of these benefits include:

  1. It tightens skin without needing a facelift
  2. It provides a “lifting” effect that was previously unattainable without surgery
  3. It requires little to no downtime
  4. Most treatments take under an hour—perfect for a lunch break or a slight detour on your way home from work
  5. Results can last up to one year

How Long Does a Non-surgical Skin Tightening Procedure Take?

The procedure can be carried out in the doctor’s office (instead of a hospital or surgical center), typically taking less than one hour to complete. There is less downtime meaning that you can quickly go back to your regular duties. You won’t have to suffer from significant bruises or have to nurse incisions, swellings, and scars that result from surgical procedures.

Who Qualifies for Non-surgical Skin Tightening?

Non-surgical skin tightening procedures are ideal for those with moderately loose and sagging skin. The treatment can be carried out on the face, neck, and other body parts. If you have noticed early signs of aging, it means that the body is not producing enough collagen, and you may benefit from non-surgical skin tightening.

How Long Does My Non-surgical Skin Tightening Results Last?

When the procedure is carried out by a qualified and experienced doctor, the results can last for more than one year. The most important thing is for the doctor to identify the right procedure that will not only give satisfactory results but will last for longer.

Is Non-surgical Skin Tightening Safe?

Non-surgical skin tightening procedures are safe and considered low risk. However, you should consult a qualified physician before the treatment. This ensures that the right products, including medically proven procedures, are used. A qualified doctor will first determine whether you are the right candidate and someone who could benefit from a non-surgical procedure before going through with the process.

How Many Non-surgical Skin Tightening Procedures Can You Have?

It is typically safe to have repeated procedures without any adverse health risks. This is especially beneficial for people with more pronounced wrinkles and sagging skin because they might need repeated treatments to achieve satisfactory results. The treatment options can also take care of other skin issues, including pigmentation, sun damage, acne scars, and skin laxity. With one visit to the doctor, you can take care of multiple skin issues.

After the treatment, taking care of your skin ensures that the effects last longer. Exercise regularly and eat healthy foods to maintain optimal body weight and skin health.
