You have probably seen one of the many cosmetic advertisements about the many ways to tighten your skin to make it look and feel great. Going through the many different skin tightening procedures that are available can be difficult without someone to help show you the way. Here are some of the best skin tightening treatments available and how they stack up to one another:
Ultrasound Skin Tightening
Ultrasound is typically used for pregnancy tests, but it can also be used in applications for skin tightening. Ultrasound waves penetrate the many layers of your skin to slowly tighten your superficial layer. Your skin may feel a heating sensation, but you will remain pain free. Ultrasound skin tightening procedures are noninvasive and are easily administered in an office setting. Most patients can return to everyday activities immediately following the procedure, with more strenuous activities resumed later that week.
If more dramatic results are what you need, then traditional cosmetic skin tightening surgery may be required. This is often invasive and requires the patient to be put under. Cosmetic surgery can help tighten skin with a tummy tuck, arm lift, post-pregnancy surgery, or many other options. Make sure to consult with your physician prior to scheduling any cosmetic skin tightening surgery to make sure you understand what kind of results to expect.
Radio frequency skin tightening is similar to ultrasound in that it uses energy waves to tighten your skin in a noninvasive or minimally invasive procedure. At the St. Louis Laser Liposuction Center, we use BodyTite to help tighten your skin while removing stubborn fat tissue that can be difficult to address through exercise and dieting. This treatment only requires a small incision that allows fat tissue to be suctioned after being “melted” through the radio frequency energy waves. Your skin’s collage production will be renewed, allowing it to be more elastic to help contour your treated area. You will be back on your feet immediately following the procedure that typically only takes around half an hour. There is minimal risk when you choose BodyTite for skin tightening procedures.
