If you would like to tighten your skin, but you’re not yet ready for surgery, non-surgical skin tightening may be a good option for you. Nowadays it’s possible to tighten sagging skin using energy based technologies, and these treatments can create real change in the appearance of the skin. But where can skin tightening be performed.
How skin tightening works
Skin tightening treatments typically work by applying heat energy to the deep layers of the skin. The energy heats the collagen fibers in the dermis and this causes the existing collagen to contract. It also stimulates the formation of new collagen and elastin, which makes the skin firmer, tighter, and more youthful. Skin tightening may involve the use of laser, radiofrequency, or ultrasound technology.
Where can skin tightening be performed?
Non-surgical skin tightening can be performed on the face to correct sagging skin and jowls, on the neck to correct a turkey neck, as well as most other areas of the body including the upper arms, abdomen, and thighs.
The Cutera Titan is one of the most advanced skin tightening systems available, and it can be used just about anywhere on the body. The Cutera Titan uses light energy to tighten the skin on the face and neck, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and folds. In addition, it is often used on the abdomen, arms, and legs. The Titan has a built-in cooling system that provides continuous cooling throughout the procedure, to keep the surface of the skin protected.
