Skin Tightening Procedures – Where To Start

Almost everyone is conscious about his or her body image. Some are successful at keeping themselves young-looking through a healthy diet, regular exercise and basic facial and body hygiene, but these alone do not work for everyone. Hence, many still resort to over-the-counter skin treatments, and when these don’t work, they get tempted to get under the knife. But getting cosmetic surgery can be risky. Thankfully, there are safe, affordable and effective skin tightening procedures you can undergo.


A few years back, the media widely marketed Thermage as a miracle worker in skin tightening. However, the results of the treatment proved to be ineffective so the hype about and the credibility of Thermage went swooping down. But don’t discard the idea of getting a skin tightening treatment just yet. Cosmetic surgeons have learned from the mistakes of Thermage so they make sure that the procedures in skin tightening they offer meet and even exceed client expectations.


Constant sun exposure, an unhealthy lifestyle and aging contribute to the sagging and wrinkling of your skin, because these factors break down the collagen that keeps your skin tight. The most popular and most effective skin tightening procedures that help restore your skin’s collagen include Thermage CPT, Exilis and Ulthera.


While early Thermage treatments were unsuccessful, the effectiveness of Thermage CPT has gained and regained clients’ trust in the treatment. Thermage CPT works through stimulating your skin to produce and restore collagen using radio frequency waves. Most of those who have gone through the treatment are satisfied because they see the results immediately within a week after their treatment and see its continued effect in a span of two or more years. But if ever they feel like they need to have another procedure, they can get the treatment, because Thermage CPT is non-invasive and takes only a little time.


Instead of using radio frequency waves, Ulthera relies on ultrasound equipment in increasing the production of collagen in your skin. Using ultrasound equipment, a cosmetic surgeon detects which part of your skin needs collagen so he or she can focus on treating the areas of your skin that are most vulnerable to sagging. Like Thermage CPT, Ulthera’s effects become visible within a week of treatment.


Exilis works by using both radio frequency waves and ultrasound technology in stimulating collagen growth. Not only is it used in skin tightening, it is also used in body contouring. In fact, it’s one of the best non-invasive alternatives to liposuction. But in tightening skin, it’s not as good as Thermage CPT and Ulthera. You’ll have to go through several sessions before you notice that your desired effects are finally becoming visible.


If you want to get naturally young-looking skin, getting cosmetic surgery won’t do for you. Getting a Thermage CPT, Ulthera or Exilis can subtract the years off your face and body without making extreme changes in your skin. Consult and get the services of a trusted cosmetic surgeon who can do any of these skin tightening procedures properly on you, and you’ll be on your way to looking and feeling younger.
