Facial Skin Tightening
As the skin ages, it becomes thinner, looser and loses elasticity. A large part of this is due to lower levels of collagen and elastin in the skin, a natural change that occurs as you get older. The facial skin is one of the first areas to show signs of lost elasticity, including lines, wrinkles and laxity. To rejuvenate the skin for a more youthful appearance, Avance Plastic Surgery Institute offers facial skin tightening at our plastic surgery and med spa clinic in Reno/Tahoe, NV.
The loss of collagen can cause facial skin to lose volume and elasticity. The skin may appear “crepey” and begin to show wrinkles or lines. Crow’s feet at the corners of the eyes, lines around the mouth and sagging skin under the chin are common signs of skin aging. Inducing collagen production deeper in the skin can help increase the volume of the skin and restore more elasticity, smoothing away lines and wrinkles and firming looser skin.
Minimally Invasive Skin Firming Treatment
Heat energy delivered to the deeper layers in the skin can stimulate the production of collagen and elastin to tighten and improve skin appearance. Dr. Erez Dayan and our team at Avance Plastic Surgery Institute offer facial skin tightening treatments to help the skin become thicker and firmer. Radiofrequency or ultrasound energy treatments can deliver heat energy to the desired skin depth to induce collagen production. The treatment is non-intrusive and painless with no downtime or recovery needed. A series of treatments is necessary to obtain the best results. In the weeks and months after treatments, the skin becomes tighter and firmer, minimizing lines, wrinkles and drooping skin.
If you are beginning to notice signs of lost elasticity in your facial skin, tightening treatments are a non-invasive option to restore a more youthful appearance.
