Over time, our skin will naturally lose collagen and elastin, resulting in drooping, sagging, or loose skin with poor elasticity. In addition, loose skin occurs with weight fluctuation, pregnancy, menopause, etc. Thankfully, effective skin tightening treatments are available, with advanced non-surgical treatment options offering firmer, more youthful skin. At Cerulean Medical Institute, our team of skin care experts offer several skin tightening treatment options for our Kelowna, BC patients. These skin tightening treatments have several benefits which can boost self-esteem for many patients.
Skin Tightening Options
At Cerulean Medical Institute, patients can choose from several tailored non-surgical skin tightening options. During a consultation, Dr. Chetty can evaluate factors such as your skin type and lifestyle to recommend the best treatment option for you.
1. Lift Sagging Skin
Poor elasticity leads to sagging and drooping skin. By stimulating new collagen, skin tightening treatments create a tighter, lifted, youthful look. This can make skin tightening treatments a good option for common ageing concerns such as jowls, drooping or sagging eyelids, neck, upper arms, buttocks, thighs, chest or abdominal regions.
2. Smooth Wrinkles
Skin tightening treatments help to smooth wrinkles. By creating a firmer texture and improving elasticity, fewer visible fine lines or wrinkles appear. Tighter and firmer skin means less sagging and improved resilience, alleviating wrinkles that are associated with skin laxity and dynamic facial movements. To further smooth wrinkles, many skin tightening patients may also pair their treatments with options such as Botox injections to reduce dynamic wrinkles or dermal fillers to restore youthful volume. This offers more complete and holistic rejuvenation for a refreshed and youthful appearance.
3. Improved & Increased Collagen
Skin tightening treatments work by stimulating new, natural collagen production. Collagen production naturally slows as we age, beginning as early as the mid-twenties and typically becoming noticeable in the thirties. Lack of collagen contributes to visible signs of aging including skin laxity and wrinkles. Improving collagen production is performed by stimulating the skin, through controlled radiofrequency and ultrasound, and injecting dermal fillers such as Radiesse to trigger the body’s natural healing and growth response. This results in increased collagen and healthy skin cells for a rejuvenated and youthful look.
4. Natural-Looking Results
While skin tightening patients want noticeable results, it is important to maintain a natural appearance. Since skin tightening treatments work by stimulating new, natural collagen, patients will avoid the pulled, pinched, or frozen look that can result from surgical options. The skin will be healthy, smooth and tightened, ensuring that you still look like yourself. This is thanks to natural collagen and a focus on maintaining healthy skin rather than surgically removing loose skin.
5. Safe and Pain-Free Treatment Options
Skin tightening options are pain-free, with several options available. There is a safe treatment for virtually any patient. Skin tightening treatments performed by our skin care experts at Cerulean Medical Institute are completely safe and effective treatment options for patients. Treatments can also be performed using topical numbing or local anesthesia as needed, making the process completely comfortable. Most skin tightening treatment options can be completed in about 30-45 minutes, depending on the procedure you choose. This makes receiving your skin tightening treatment very convenient.
6. Multiple Treatment Areas
Over time, patients will notice signs of aging through the face and body as skin loses natural collagen and elastin. Thankfully, skin tightening treatments at Cerulean Medical Institute can be performed in many treatment areas. While the most common treatment areas for skin tightening are the face, eye region, neck, and chest, patients may also choose to treat areas such as the hands, abdominal area, thighs, upper arms, and buttocks. With several options to choose from, patients can enjoy skin tightening benefits for anti-aging and body contouring purposes. During a consultation, Dr. Chetty will recommend the best treatment option for your needs.
7. No Downtime Required
Skin tightening treatments require no downtime at all. After your skin tightening treatment, Dr. Chetty will provide postcareadvice for your skin. Instructions will vary depending on the skin tightening procedure you receive, so be sure to take note of Dr. Chetty’s directions.
