Youthful skin looks smooth and firm. Skin laxity develops as we age and lose collagen. You can recapture some of that youthful firmness with in-office skin tightening treatments that do not require general anesthesia and weeks of downtime. Many of these treatments work on the face and body so you can tighten all your areas of loose skin.
How Does Skin Tightening Work?
Non-surgical skin tightening treatments use your body’s collagen to remodel and tighten your skin. Collagen, a vital structural protein, forms connective tissue all over the body, including the deep layers of skin. A network of collagen fibers keeps young skin smooth and resilient. Skin tightening treatments use different forms of energy to stimulate your skin cells to produce more collagen. This new collagen remodels your skin from within to tighten and smooth.
