Are You a Good Candidate for Non-Surgical Skin Tightening?
This is our 3rd article in our 3-part series on non-invasive skin procedures. The following list below are more options of non-invasive skin tightening treatments, from our previous articles in our three-part series tightening and lifting skin procedures without surgery.
Non-Surgical Skin Tightening Candidates
It’s generally best suited for patients who are bothered by mild to moderate skin laxity and do not need the more dramatic lifting and skin removal possible with cosmetic surgery. While there are few serious side-effects associated with non-surgical skin tightening, it may not be appropriate for patients who are pregnant, taking certain medications, or have certain medical conditions.
It is a new technology that allows surgeons to combine the benefits of microneedling and RF (Radio Frequency) to stimulate more collagen and elastin and treat the deeper layers of the skin. A series of 2 to 6 treatments may be recommended for optimal results. This treatment is suitable for the face, neck, hands, and body.
Combining IPL/RF Treatments
A third class of skin-tightening treatments combines intense pulse light (IPL) with Radio Frequency (RF) to heat deeper layers of skin and induce the natural healing response, which will in turn trigger collagen production. The addition of IPL allows for the treatment of large areas of skin and skin conditions, while the RF energy can be hyper-focused to treat deeper layers of skin. It is best to first treat with Radio Frequency (RF), then allow the redness to go before using (IPL) Intense Pulse Light.
Combination Non-Surgical Skin Care Treatments
Combination non-surgical skin care treatments tend to be extremely effective, as they are able to treat multiple concerns in one procedure.
IPL/RF Combination Treatments
The IPL device sends out multiple wavelengths of light to treat a range of skin conditions. Treatments can be performed with little to no downtime. Clients typically experience little to no discomfort. The results appear gradually as the skin produces new collagen. A series of treatments may be recommended for optimal results. IPL treatments may not be suitable for darker or tanned skin.
