As you age, your skin naturally loses its ability to produce collagen. This decreases the tightness of your skin and compromises its elasticity. This loss of elasticity results in the skin being unable to “bounce back” from routine facial expressions, resulting in permanent lines and wrinkles. The lack of collagen also allows your skin to slacken, and the forces of gravity gradually drag the skin downward, showing up as sagging skin. A great way to address this slack skin and wrinkling is with a facial skin tightening procedure at Creative Dentistry & Medspa.
How Do I Know When it is Time for Skin Tightening?
The degree of sagging skin and wrinkling varies for everyone, and it depends on genetics, sun exposure and lifestyle choices. But the truth is, no one can escape the signs of aging. However, everyone has the power to do something about it and rejuvenate their appearance with nonsurgical treatments that address the telltale signs of aging with excellent, natural looking results.
The treatments for facial skin tightening range from different methods of collagen rebuilding to mechanical skin lifting, or a combination of several techniques. A consultation with the medical team at Creative Dentistry & Medspa will assess your features, proportions, wrinkles and skin slackening before providing you with the options that will result in the best outcomes for your personal needs.
What Treatment Options Are Available?
Facial skin tightening can be addressed in multiple ways and will depend on your medical team’s recommendations and your personal preferences. Some of the most common facial skin tightening options are:
PDO Thread Lift
For the most exceptional results, a PDO thread lift addresses all the common concerns for aging skin. It is a minimally invasive procedure that addresses sagging jowls, loose neck skin, marionette lines, nasolabial folds, eyes and brows. Similar to a facelift, the PDO threads are placed under the skin and carefully positioned and tightened to provide a natural looking lift to your face. PDO threads are designed to be absorbed by your body, so the results are not permanent. However, the threads encourage a new matrix of collagen to form, and by the time they dissolve, you will have naturally improved the elasticity of your skin.
Fillers and Botox
Fillers can restore volume beneath the skin, and the plumped areas create a smooth surface that improves the look of wrinkles and hollows. Botox® can provide the appearance of tighter skin by relaxing the muscles below the surface, allowing your skin to sit smoothly on top, hiding the signs of wrinkles.
Fractional Lasering and Plasma Fibroblast
Fractional lasering and plasma fibroblast treatments rebuild the collagen in lax skin, which provides more skin elasticity. Both have additional benefits, including improving the look of fine lines and wrinkles and providing a youthful glow.
