As we begin to get older, the skin starts to lose its elasticity, making it sag. Even the strictest of skincare routines can’t prevent that from happening. To make one look younger, many people opt for surgical procedures. However, suppose you feel apprehensive about undergoing a surgical procedure to restore your youthful look. In that case, there are non-surgical procedures for skin tightening Toronto that you could opt for. We are going to walk you through some of these procedures that you could choose from. All the following procedures are customized according to the needs and the skin condition of the person.
Laser Skin Tightening
This skin tightening procedure helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and tightens sagging and loose skin. In the treatment procedure, the laser technician works with a guiding laser beam on the area that is to be tightened. The infrared light provides heat to the collagen under the skin’s surface, creating a tightening effect. This procedure has minimal downtime. You might require one to four treatment sittings to get them tighter, healthier, and smoother look. Each sitting takes a little less than an hour to complete. The laser treatment has minimal side effects.
The ultrasound waves are great for rejuvenating the sagging facial skin and restore firmness and elasticity. In Ultherapy, a special handheld device is used to treat the skin. The patterns and wavelengths of the waves are controlled and precise. This treatment has a very low risk involved. The waves penetrate the deepest skin layer, which can only be accessed and tightened during the surgical facelift. It then tightens the underlying tissues and stimulates the growth of new collagen. You will be able to see an immediate tightening effect after the treatment. However, you would be able to fully enjoy the results almost three months after the procedure as the collagen would have developed entirely by then. The downtime after ultherapy is minimal, and you might experience slight redness and swelling.
Microneedling is another popular skin tightening process that stimulates the production of collagen. In the course of the treatment, microneedles are used to penetrate and perforate the skin. This creates artificial wounds which help in the production of collagen. The skin’s dermis layer starts to contract and heal, which leaves you with glowing, youthful, and firm skin with lesser fine lines. The micro-injuries force the skin to repair itself by regenerating the new cells.
The radiofrequency treatment works by heating the desired area. This heat helps to stimulate the production of collagen. The therapy focuses on various epidermal layers, which are different from the ones that Ultherapy targets. Radiofrequency treatment can be done on the neck, face, hands, and body. You might experience a little discomfort. However, the procedure has no downtime. It is safe and suitable for all skin types. Some radiofrequency treatments also combine IPL laser technology which helps to heat the deep layers of the skin and enable the treatment of multiple layers.
