Effective Options for Skin Tightening Treatment

  • posted: May 18, 2022

When you look in the mirror, you might notice that your skin doesn’t appear as tight and firm as it once did. Body contouring and skin tightening can start to restore that youthful appearance in many different parts of the body, such as the face, arms, abdomen, and even under the chin.

If you have the desire for a skin tightening treatment in any area, we can help. At Gold Skin Care Center, we believe in offering plenty of options so that you can choose the treatment that works the best for your body. Below are a few of the treatments we recommend to our patients who want to tighten up loose skin.

Radiofrequency

Many of our patients who are interested in a skin tightening procedure will opt for one of our top-of-the-line radiofrequency treatments. We have the best technology in the industry to give you the results you desire.

We offer a wide array of radiofrequency treatments that serve different purposes in addition to skin tightening. Some can also reduce the appearance of scars, minimize wrinkles and fine lines, reduce submental fullness, and improve skin texture. A few of the options on our menu of skin tightening procedures include:

  • Co2LIFT
  • Cynosure or Ellman Pellevé
  • EndyMed Pure
  • InMode Forma and Forma Plus
  • Pollogen Apollo
  • Syneron Candela VelaShape III
  • TempSure Envi and Firm
  • ThermiSmooth and ThermiTight
  • Venus Legacy

For a more in-depth look at how radiofrequency works in real life, take a look at our three most popular skin tightening treatments: Alma Accent, BTL Exilis Elite, and EndyMed 3Deep.

Alma Accent

Alma Accent is one of our most advanced treatments, combining the benefits of ultrasound and radiofrequency. As a non-invasive treatment, the Alma Accent still packs a powerful punch for both fat reduction and skin laxity.

It can break down fat cells with no damage to the surrounding areas, giving you results in just a single session. Keep in mind that results with the Alma Accent will not be immediate. It may take some time for fat cells to leave the body through the lymphatic system.

BTL Exilis Elite

Radiofrequency is at the heart of what the BTL Exilis Elite offers our patients, with advanced technology known as layering that can tighten skin.

During this skin tightening procedure, the radiofrequency energy is directed toward different depths in the skin’s tissue. This allows us to target every layer of skin, from the deepest to the most superficial.

EndyMed 3Deep

If you want an extremely powerful skin tightening treatment that can do more than improve skin laxity, then you need to talk with our skincare professionals about EndyMed 3Deep. It boasts a range of treatment options, including the following:

  • Skin tightening and body contouring
  • Wrinkle, acne scar, and stretch mark reduction
  • Fat reduction
  • Improved skin texture

This method employs radiofrequency energy in combination with microneedling to give you a wide variety of results quickly and efficiently with minimal downtime. Microneedling devices create small pricks in the skin. These micro-wounds encourage the body to produce skin-rejuvenating collagen and elastin in the treatment area.

Ultrasound

If radiofrequency isn’t the right fit for you, ultrasound may be the best choice. Our team uses Ultherapy technology to get deep below the skin’s surface and encourage the body to produce a new batch of collagen.

Ultherapy is the only skin tightening treatment approved by the FDA for lifting the skin in key areas such as:

  • The neck
  • The chin
  • Above the eyebrows

In addition to skin tightening for the face, neck, and chest, Ultherapy is frequently used to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles that appear during the aging process.

The best part of ultrasound therapy for improving skin laxity and tightening the skin is that it is a completely non-invasive treatment. You can easily schedule an appointment for a long lunch break and return to the office afterward, as there is no downtime with Ultherapy.

Skin Tightening with Sutures

For patients who want a long-lasting skin tightening treatment, sutures might be a better fit than radiofrequency and ultrasound therapy. We perform the Silhouette InstaLift procedure, which we can complete directly in our office.

We are always ahead of the latest technology; Dr. Michael Gold was one of the first physicians to be trained on the techniques used in this treatment.

How does this treatment work? Our experienced team of skincare professionals will apply dissolvable sutures into the tissues of the face. These state-of-the-art sutures will create an instant lift that makes the skin appear tighter. However, this is not the only reason that it helps with skin tightening.

The implantation of the sutures also triggers the body’s natural healing response and boosts collagen production in these areas. While your body produces more collagen that will eventually hold the position, the sutures keep the skin tight in the desired areas.

Much like the other skin tightening treatment options, there is little to no downtime with the Silhouette InstaLift. However, you will see much longer-lasting results with sutures compared to other treatment options. Many of our patients see results that last for up to two years.
