Skin Tightening in Philadelphia

As time passes, everyone begins to lose facial volume causing the skin to sag and wrinkle.

Even with regular exercise and proper diet, the skin continues to lose some of its elasticity. Collagen and elastin are two proteins that keep your skin plump and firm.

As we age, the production of these proteins slows down, creating sagging skin. Skin tightening offers several solutions to resolve signs of aging, rejuvenate the skin, and restore a firmer and more youthful appearance. There is a wide selection of skin tightening procedures and treatments available at Subbio Medical Spa to restore smooth and taut skin.

Non-surgical Skin Tightening

There are a number of options when it comes to refreshing your skin, with treatments using light or radiofrequency. These procedures excite the production of collagen, which aids in regenerating healthy skin. There is no downtime, and little to no recovery time, to worry about.

It is safe for people of all skin colors. Most procedures take less than an hour, with patients typically returning to work or daily activities immediately after their visit.

Laser Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing uses carbon dioxide to remove part of the epidermis and go deep into the dermis to instigate new collagen production. These procedures tighten your skin, decrease age spots, restores sun-damaged skin, reduces wrinkles, and improves skin tone and texture.

Radiofrequency

After cooling your skin, a device is used on the treated area to apply radiofrequency emitted heat energy to penetrate the surface of your skin and deep layers, triggering the production of collagen, which helps tighten your skin. The popular brands include Accent and Thermage with common treatment areas being the chest, eyes, face, hands, and neck.

Surgical

There are different types of lifts to pull and tighten loose skin on the face, eyes, and neck. For example, a facelift can help anyone with deep creases around the eyes, skin folds around the mouth and nose, or prominent jowls.

There is some downtime and a recovery time of two or three weeks depending on the procedure. Results are long-lasting with an invasive procedure, although it does not stop the aging process.

An invasive procedure can supply dramatic improvement in excessive and sagging skin, particularly after significant weight loss or childbirth. For example, a tummy tuck can focus on mild to severe excess skin and fat and restore a toner stomach. Similar results can be obtained with a lower-body lift and improve the appearance of your buttocks or thighs.

Skin Tightening FAQs

If you have sagging skin on your face or other areas of your body and have a desire for a tighter and more toned appearance, you may be an appropriate candidate for skin tightening. You should be in good health and not have chronic health problems. Pregnant women should consult the aesthetician about their options for skin tightening.

Some results may be immediately visible depending on which technique is used for your procedure. With less invasive procedures, it may take multiple treatments and several months for new collagen to be produced, and see the desired enhancements.

You may experience some discomfort and some redness and swelling at the treated site following your procedure. It is possible to see minor changes in skin color or have some scarring.
