Look Years Younger with 7 Skin Tightening Treatments (Part 2)
Turn Back Time with the Top Skin Tightening Treatments (Part 2)
Nothing ages a woman or man’s face like sagging skin. But as we age, collagen and elastin production decreases dramatically causing lax, saggy skin that doesn’t snap back.
The good news is that AMAE Plastic Surgery & Med Spa in the Bloomfield Hills, MI area offers the latest and most advanced skin tightening treatments that activate and improve collagen and elastin production to tighten skin and restore more youthful tone and tightness.
In this two part article the skin care experts at AMAE Plastic Surgery in the Bloomfield Hills, MI area discuss seven of our most effective skin tightening treatments, including their benefits, expected results, relative cost, discomfort, downtime, and results. Few other medical spas in the entire Birmingham, MI area offer so many of the best technologies in state-of-the-art-skin tightening.
Frax 1550 Laser Skin Tightening
Frax 1550 is a fractional laser treatment that delivers energy to the skin to stimulate collagen production and tighten the skin. The treatment is effective at improving skin texture and tone, as well as reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and improving overall skin quality.
Unlike many other lasers, the Frax 1550 is suitable for all skin types and can be used to tighten skin on various parts of the body, in addition to the face, neck, chest, and hands.
The downside is that patients typically require several treatments to achieve optimal results, with each session spaced about a month apart. However, the upside is that skin tightening results can last up to several years. The Frax 1550 laser can be more uncomfortable than Thermi or IPL, and patients may experience redness, swelling, and peeling for several days after treatment.
Downtime afterwards will vary depending on the intensity of the treatment, but most people need about a week to recover fully from the redness and swelling.
CO2RE Skin Tightening
CO2RE is the newest generation of fractional CO2 lasers that uses energy to stimulate collagen production and tighten the skin. The treatment involves using a laser to make tiny holes in the skin, which triggers the body’s natural healing process and promotes collagen production. The result is smoother, tighter, and more youthful-looking skin.
Because it is a “fractional” laser it does not remove (ablate) the entire top surface of the skin – so there is less downtime than with ablative laser that remove the epidermis (top layer of skin). And because it is non-ablative, It is suitable for all skin types and can be used on various parts of the body in addition to the face and neck.
CO2RE can effectively tighten loose skin, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and improve skin texture and tone. And most people see noticeable results after just one treatment! It is ideal for patients who have lines and wrinkles as well as laxity – as it treats all of these issues at once. And results can last for up to several years.
While CO2RE is typically a more expensive skin tightening treatment than IPL or Thermi, it delivers significant results and AMAE Plastic Surgery & Med Spa in the Bloomfield Hills, MI area offers frequent specials (as well as financing) for this amazing treatment.
CO2RE patients may experience redness, swelling, and peeling for several days after treatment. Downtime can vary depending on the intensity of the treatment, but most people need about a week to recover fully.
Profound Skin Tightening Treatment
Our latest and most advanced technology for tightening aging skin is Profound. This minimally invasive skin tightening treatment utilizes a combination of radiofrequency energy and microneedling to stimulate collagen and elastin production and is the gold standard in skin tightening. Profound is FDA-approved for the reduction of wrinkles and the improvement of skin laxity, and it has been shown to be particularly effective for tightening the skin on the face and neck.
Profound is a minimally invasive treatment that delivers almost facelift-like skin tightening that does not require surgery, incisions, or general anesthesia. This means that patients get dramatically tighter skin with less risk, less downtime, no scars, and less discomfort than surgical skin tightening procedures.
We love Profound for skin tightening because the treatment can be customized to address the specific concerns of each patient, including fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. And the results are exceptionally long-lasting. The collagen and elastin production stimulated by Profound can continue for up to six months following treatment, and the results can last for up to two years.
Profound even has less downtime than laser treatments like Frax or CO2Re and patients can typically resume normal activities within a few days following treatment, with minimal discomfort or side effects. Profound skin tightening treatment is a more expensive procedure than IPL, PRP, or Frax – but it is considerably less expensive than a facelift or other skin tightening surgery – with many patients reporting significant improvements in skin tone, texture, and firmness. And the full results of the treatment continue to develop over time and become fully apparent several months following the procedure.
Profound’s dramatic and the long-lasting results and minimal downtime more than justify the higher cost and make it an attractive option for patients seeking a non-surgical alternative to traditional skin tightening procedures.
