3 Minute Read:
Signs of aging can appear as soon as our late twenties, and it’s essential to use adequate sunscreens and high-quality skin care products to protect our face, neck, and chest (décolletage).
By the time we reach our 40s, we will likely experience some degree of laxity (loosening) of the skin in these areas.
Preventing Skin Laxity
In addition to an effective skin care routine, today’s advanced non-surgical and minimally invasive technologies provide highly effective treatments that can help increase the collagen in our skin and keep it tight and healthy for as long as possible. That is, if we start using them before this laxity becomes too significant.
Cosmetic Treatments That May Help Tighten Facial Skin (Along With Other Skin Concerns)
Some people treat other skin issues like acne, scarring, discoloration, and sun damage (prior to having any serious laxity concerns) with the following treatments and benefit from the procedure’s additional skin tightening features.
- Micro-needling with Eclipse MicroPen® Elite: This treatment can soften rough skin, improving texture and evening out skin tone by stimulating collagen production. This restored collagen can also help prevent early laxity.
- Active/DeepFX™ laser technology: This procedure treats dark spots, wrinkles, and sun-damaged skin while also increasing collagen to address laxity.
- elōs® Plus FotoFacial: This radio-frequency (RF) and light treatment addresses sun spots, wrinkles, acne scarring, and other skin concerns on the face and neck while also helping keep skin tight.
- elōs® Sublative RF: This procedure was created to address irregularities of tone and texture like freckles, acne, age spots, spider veins, and rosacea. It can also tighten mildly loose skin while reducing lines and wrinkles.
- Infini™ by Lutronic®: This procedure combines fractional micro-needling and radio frequencies to deliver intense radio-frequency energy through its specially designed insulated micro-needles to treat wrinkles, texture inconsistencies, acne scars, and skin laxity on the face, neck, and jowls.
Treatments Designed Specifically to Tighten Skin
While the treatments mentioned above can help tighten skin along with their other benefits, the following procedures were specifically created to tighten loose skin.
While a surgical facelift will always provide the most dramatic results, these treatments are proven highly effective in tightening mild to moderately loose facial skin:
- elōs® SUBLIME: This FDA-approved, non-invasive treatment tightens and lifts facial skin with minimal discomfort and zero downtime. Radio-frequency and infrared light energy is used to tighten skin and stimulate collagen production deep in the skin. With elōs® SUBLIME, you may also experience a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.
- Ultherapy®: This device fights back against gravity and time by lifting and tightening the skin using ultrasonic waves to heat the underlying tissues. Ultherapy® works all over the face, including the brows, neck, jowls, and under the chin area. It can also be used to tighten the chest (décolletage) area.
