When you begin noticing lines, wrinkles and lost firmness in the face, it is due to lost elasticity in the skin. The body begins producing less collagen, elastin and other elements that contribute to skin firmness as you get older, which allows the skin to loosen and sag. While plastic surgery can remove excess skin, there are minimally invasive treatments for skin tightening. HMS Plastic Surgery offers facial skin tightening procedures at our center in Miami, FL.
In the early stages of lost elasticity in the facial skin, you will begin to notice lines and wrinkles appearing. Crow’s feet, laugh/smile lines, marionette lines and other wrinkles can appear on the skin. Gravity can begin to pull the skin and tissue down, which can create heavier jowls, sagging along the jawline and wrinkled neck skin. To combat the lost elasticity, skin tightening treatments can be completed to improve the firmness of the skin structure.
Minimally Invasive Facial Lift
Surgical facelifts and neck lifts remove excess skin with incisions and physically tighten the skin and tissue. Minimally invasive facial skin tightening can have a similar effect without surgery. Thermal energy is one of the most effective treatments to accomplish skin tightening without surgery. The heat from radiofrequency or light energy can be directed deep into the layers of the skin. This stimulates collagen production that can increase the elasticity and firmness within the skin.
Skin tightening treatments are not painful and do not require downtime. The results appear over the weeks and months after the procedure as the collagen levels increase. Noticeable lifting and firming of the skin occur, diminishing heavy jowls, turkey skin on the neck and facial lines/wrinkles. This treatment can help you look years younger, and it can delay the need for more invasive facial rejuvenation procedures like neck or facelifts.
