Skin Tightening in Edmonton
Nonsurgical skin tightening techniques are cosmetic treatments that can improve the appearance of your face and stomach. These techniques are significantly less intrusive than surgical options such as facelifts and tummy tucks, and some promise comparable results. There are also fewer complications, less costly, and recovery is straightforward. These therapies are based on cutting-edge technology. That means there is still a study gap in understanding how effective they are and what the long-term negative effects may be. This post will go through the many forms of non-invasive skin tightening treatments, what the study suggests, and what you should think about before attempting them.
Skin tightening treatments
Skin tightening treatments come in a variety of forms. When you are born, your skin contains proteins called elastin and collagen. These proteins provide your skin structure and flexibility. As you age, your body’s manufacturing of these proteins slows down. As a result, your skin begins to lose suppleness. Gravity, pollution, stress, and the hundreds of motions your face muscles perform daily can cause your skin to stretch or droop. Other circumstances, such as pregnancy and weight loss, can lead to stretch marks and drooping skin. Nonsurgical skin tightening treatments target regions of your skin that have grown loose and encourage collagen formation beneath the epidermis. As previously stated, we can use various techniques to help rejuvenate the skin and overcome and reverse the effects of aging. The treatment of choice for skin tightening is determined by the client’s current skin condition, skin colour, contraindications, the amount of downtime allowed, and the client’s financial situation. Edmonton’s most commonly used skin tightening technologies are the Fraxel laser, a fractional non-ablative laser, radiofrequency micro-needling such as Fractora RF microneedling, Ulthera, Microdermabrasion, Filler, and Botox. Albany Laser and Cosmetic Center does not limit our clients to a single technology.
