There are a variety of treatment options out there that promise to tighten the skin. However, many of these are not effective and do not work as advertised. In this article, we are going to talk about a few skin tightening treatments (both surgical and non-surgical) that can actually be effective at tightening the skin.
Facial Plastic Surgery (Facelift, Neck Lift, etc.)
Facial plastic surgery is perhaps the most effective way of tightening your skin. The downside is that it’s also the most invasive. If you’re looking to tighten the skin on your neck, face, or another area of your body, a procedure by a skilled facial plastic surgeon may be your best option.
Radiofrequency Skin Tightening Treatments
Radiofrequency skin tightening treatments offer a great non-invasive alternative to surgery for patients who want to tighten their skin. This process involves heating up the skin to trigger collagen production, tightening the skin in the process. As an added bonus, it can also help with weight loss. At Riverview Facial Plastic & Total Body Aesthetic, we use the Exilis Radiofrequency system.
Ultrasound Skin Tightening
Ultrasound is another non-surgical skin tightening treatment option. This procedure involves using ultrasound waves to firm the skin by inducing collagen production. Ultrasound skin tightening is very safe and results can last for up to a year.
