What Can Non-Surgical Skin Tightening Do For Your Aesthetic Goals?

Surgical skin tightening has long been the gold standard for weight loss and aging patients alike. However, non-surgical skin tightening also has a number of other benefits and it’s worth exploring with the help of your board-certified plastic surgeon. Here’s what to know about skin tightening and what your options are.

Benefits of Non-Surgical Skin Tightening

1. More Youthful Appearance

It’s natural to want to look as young and energetic as you feel. While plastic surgery is the traditional way of getting this youthful appearance, non-surgical skin tightening offers a more natural solution with lasting results. Skin tightening is a type of non-invasive aesthetic procedure. This means that the skin is tightened without incisions or substantial recovery. The goal is to reduce the sagging, wrinkles, and lines that come with aging by tightening the skin and replacing lost volume.

2. Better Appearance for Those With Wrinkles And Lines

Skin tightening can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in a variety of ways. The most effective non-surgical skin tightening packages incorporate fillers and other ways to restore volume to the face and lift up sagging skin. The overall effect is a more lifted, contoured look when aging can take away from your face’s definition and form. Additionally, stimulating collagen can help “shrink” sagging skin and help restore it to its natural position.

3. Low Risk

Skin tightening is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that can be done quickly and safely in the office of a board-certified plastic surgeon. In general, there are low risks with non-surgical skin tightening. The most common side effects are bruising and swelling at the treatment site. These side effects can usually be treated with ice packs and anti-inflammatory medication, which will help relieve pain and discomfort. This is one of the reasons why this type of aesthetic treatment is becoming increasingly popular among people hoping to look their best – and those who want to avoid extensive downtime associated with surgery.

Limitations of Non-Surgical Skin Tightening

One downside of non-surgical skin tightening is that the results are not instant, and it may take weeks or even months before you can see changes. You will have to wait for your body to repair skin and regenerate collagen after each treatment, and most people will start seeing results in two to four months. It’s normal to require a package of treatments for best results with non-surgical skin tightening. Finally, patients with moderate to severe signs of aging may not see the results they want with non-surgical skin tightening and may need to opt for a procedure like a facelift instead.

Schedule a Consultation

There are many benefits to non-surgical skin tightening. As always, it’s best to select a board-certified plastic surgeon with experience in providing non-surgical skin tightening procedures as well as a variety of other cosmetic treatments so you can explore all of your best options.
