Sagging or wrinkled skin is a problem that almost everyone has to deal with at some age. The severity of the winkles does vary, as does how quickly wrinkle progress. A lot depends on personal habits, genetics, and environmental exposures to things like weather, chemicals, and too much sun. But whatever the reason for your skin wrinkles and sags, there are ways to tighten sagging skin without having cosmetic surgery.
Ways to tighten sagging skin
Let’s have a look at some of the ways to tighten sagging skin:
1. Having Sound-Based Skincare Therapy Performed in a Clinic
Sound-based skincare therapies are among some of the least invasive clinical skincare treatment options. One popular option is commonly known as Thermage. It is the treatment of the skin with specific radio frequency beams. The radio frequencies can get down into the skin, heating up and agitating molecules. That agitation can trigger natural restorative processes within your body, such as the production of extra collagen to strengthen skin cells. This is one of the popular ways to tighten sagging skin.
Another form of sound wave therapy is ultrasound, which is known in skincare circles as Ultherapy. Ultherapy uses a different type of sound waves, but with similar results. It is typically reserved for facial treatments and has not been FDA-approved for many other body parts.
2. Using Lasers to Repair Your Damaged Skin
Another potential way to tighten sagging skin in a clinic without resorting to major surgery is by scheduling a laser appointment. You can use cosmetic machinery that produces laser light and heat to treat many different skin problems that you may have. Some lasers are meant for treating mild wrinkles, while others perform more intensive wrinkle treatments that can help you to smooth moderately sagging skin. There are also lasers that can simply “resurface” your skin, removing dead cells and making surface wrinkles less noticeable.
Risk Factors to Consider Before Having Clinical Treatment
Any medical skincare procedure comes with some potential side effects and risks. Although the side effects are few and far between for some treatments, and what side effects there are are usually temporary, those factors must be considered carefully. For instance, you may find that for a short time after a laser procedure or certain other skincare treatments your skin is extra sensitive to sunlight. It may also become temporarily swollen, read, or bruised. While sun sensitivity can last for anywhere from a day to a few weeks, depending on the procedure, redness and swelling generally subside within a day.
How to Prepare for Clinical Skincare Procedures
The best way to prepare yourself for any clinical skincare procedure is to ask a lot of questions during your consultation appointment. If your questions are not fully answered, take the time to find those answers before making your actual skincare treatment appointment. The question asking process will also help you to identify a skincare clinic where the professionals are knowledgeable and trustworthy.
Results of Clinical Treatments for Skin Problems
The results you will get from clinical skincare treatments might be mild at first, or you might see quite drastic improvements. Typically non-surgical skincare methods like the sound wave and laser therapies mentioned above must be repeated at certain intervals for a while. Only after a series of appointments are you likely to see drastic improvement. However, other clinical procedures, such as chemical peels, can produce results right away. If you want to know what to expect from a specific procedure the most accurate answer will come from the clinician that will be performing that treatment on you.
