Restore Your Skin’s Elasticity through Skin Tightening
As we get older our skin begins to lose its elasticity resulting in loose skin that starts to sag and/or wrinkle. Luckily, there are plenty of procedures, both invasive and noninvasive that can be used to combat time and gravity and restore firmness to your skin. One of the most popular noninvasive methods being used to tightenskin is the use of Venus Freeze.
What Skin Tightening is Used at Our Clinic?
Skin tightening in Clinton MI where our clinic is based is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure called Venus Freeze that is a FDA approved method that can get rid of fine lines and wrinkles. An infrared light source is used to tighten the skin by heating the collagen below the skin’s surface. The skin contracts, making it feel tighter.
Skin tightening treatments encourage collagen growth, which provides smoother, softer skin that has a healthy glow and youthful appearance. As months go by the effects will continue to improve your skin. This treatment is good for almost any part of the body and can provide permanent results. An added benefit of skin tightening is that it is safe and effective for restoring a more firm, youthful appearance to skin all over the body.
What to Expect During Treatment?
Before the procedure begins your doctor will apply a topical anesthetic to reduce any discomfort that may be experienced. Once done the device is used to generate pulses of radio-wave energy to the skin, which heats up the skin tissue causing it to tighten. Each area usually needs to be gone over around three times for the best results and sessions can last from 30 minutes to an hour depending on the size and location of the area that is going to be treated. There is no downtime involved and results are visible almost immediately.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Venus Freeze skin tightening is available for men and women of all skin types and complexions. Good candidates for skin tightening are those who:
- Have loose skin on their face, neck, arms or abdomen
- Don’t want to have an invasive surgical procedure done
- Have loose skin following an operation
- Have been noticing signs of aging or sagging skin
- Would like to improve the quality of their skin
Are there any risks?
As a great alternative to the invasive cosmetic surgeries available to tighten the skin there are very little side effects to using a radio-wave since it is a non-invasive procedure. Some effects may be swelling, redness or a warm sensation to the skin. Most of the effects will resolve themselves within a few hours of your session. You can reduce your chance of having any negative side effects by picking a doctor that has lots of experience with skin tightening procedures like Dr. David Iacobelli, who practices in Clinton, MI with over 35 years of experience under his belt.
Over the past years skin-tightening procedures have become very popular for both men and women. Noninvasive procedures are the go-to treatment options because they can be performed during a lunch break and most provide results that are available to see almost immediately. With the wide variety of options available today it will be easy for your doctor to choose a technique that works for both of you and provide you with the results you are looking for.
