Using Skincare Advancements to Tighten Your Loose Skin

There was a time when people had to live with wrinkles and loose skin. There was also a time when surgery was one of the most popular skin tightening options. But today there have been many skincare advancements that are making it far easier to tighten loose skin. So, if you have skin you want to tighten, you have many choices. However, before you can pick one you need to understand a bit about how your skin got to the state it is currently in.

Understanding the Components of Your Skin

Your skin is made of of many different components. Its individual cells cling together because of components called elastin and collagen. Any damage to or reduction in production of those components will cause wrinkles and sags to develop.

For example, if your hormone levels change, which they naturally do as you age, you may find yourself with loose skin. But skincare specialists can fix that for you in a number of ways. Most of those ways involve either replacing lost collagen or getting your body to make more of it.

Laser Treatment as a Collagen Enhancement Process

One of the safest and easiest collagen enhancement methods used in clinics is laser treatment. Skincare clinicians are always buying medical laser devices for their clinics and using them to treat patients. There is a good reason for that. The reason is they work, and they do so with minimal risks and side effects. In fact, depending on the type of laser treatment you pick, your skin may be tightened in two ways. Some lasers are capable of both causing existing collagen to tighten up and triggering the production of new collagen to give cells added strength. The combination can smooth out your skin over time.

Lasers come in several forms and strengths, but the two main categories are ablative and non-ablative. Non-ablative lasers, which are lasers not impacting the surface of the skin, are popular for skin tightening because of their widespread affects. If you have such a treatment your body will respond by making more collagen. The collagen will then be sent to the skin cells where it can be used to bond them together more tightly.

Other Ways to Replace Lost Collagen

When your collagen levels are lowered through natural aging or your skin is damaged for other reasons replacing lost or damaged collagen is essential. There are several ways to do so without laser treatment. For example, medicated creams and lotions can be used to heal your skin. But skincare advancements also include injections for skin tightening, sound wave treatments, and other skincare options. You must weigh those options and make a decision.

Factors to Help You Pick a Skin Tightening Method

Comfort level is one factor you can use to pick a skin tightening method. But keep in mind that the most comfortable treatments tend to be the most mild. For example, you can apply a cream or lotion to your skin with no discomfort at all. But you may have to do so regularly for a very long period of time before you see any results. If you choose to tighten your skin with a method like laser treatment you might have some discomfort during the procedure, but you are likely to see more immediate and profound results.

Also, a trained laser technician will help you manage your discomfort with skin cooling and numbing techniques.

Numbing cream is applied and massaged into the face skin to numb the facial skin. The face is then covered with a cling wrap for maximum absorption of the numbing cream.

Another factor to think about when choosing a skin tightening method is cost. That factor becomes even more important when you understand that most skin tightening methods have to be repeated several times. Laser treatments, for example, are usually recommended in batches of four to six procedures.

Speak to your skincare specialist to get a sense of how many of each treatment you may need and what the final costs will be.

Besides having these treatments done, it is good to also practice a consistent beauty routine for lasting results.
