Learn about the best methods to tighten your skin.
Face Skin Tightening
Face skin tightening Toronto is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that is one of the fastest-growing treatment categories in Canada and the United States. There comes a point for most of us where we look in the mirror and realize we are not quite the same anymore! Sagging skin can affect all of us at one time or another in our life. Events such as weight loss, pregnancy, and aging all cause skin laxity. Fortunately, Sovereign Skin offers a variety of non-surgical ways to restore and tighten sagging skin. These treatments listed below can offer improvement for skin laxity and have a simple, easy recovery.
Laser Skin Tightening
Laser skin tightening Toronto is a minimally invasive, anti-aging procedure for patients considering how they can reduce the appearance of wrinkles on their face, body, or neck and tighten sagging and loose skin. Within 1 to 4 treatments, most patients will have tighter, healthier, and smoother skin that looks years younger! Another benefit is that most laser skin-tightening treatments take less than an hour to complete.
The process works with a laser technician or laser nurse guiding the laser beam across the area to be tightened. The infrared light source heats collagen under the skin’s surface, causing a tightening effect. The effects of the laser skin tightening treatment Toronto may not be as dramatic as a facial plastic surgery procedure (like a facelift or neck lift). However, patients do enjoy the laser tightening results with minimal downtime.
One of the more well-known laser skin-tightening Toronto treatments has been branded as Hot Sculpting in Canada and TightSculpting in the United States. It is part of the Fotona laser technology. Hot Sculpting is designed to target unwanted pockets of fat by accelerating cell metabolism while simultaneously addressing skin laxity! The benefits include smoothing, lifting, and tightening the skin, increasing elasticity and suppleness, reducing and re-sculpting fat deposits, and even improving the appearance of cellulite.
There are minimal side effects and basically no downtime following treatment. Hot Sculpting (or TightSculpting) is suitable for most areas on the body and does not involve needles or anaesthetic. It’s a fantastic alternative to laser lipolysis and has emerged as an effective skin-tightening Toronto option due to its versatility and comfort.
Ultherapy is unique in the industry, as it uses ultrasound waves to rejuvenate the sagginess of facial skin and help people regain skin firmness and elasticity. A medical aesthetician or nurse uses a special hand device to treat the skin. The patterns and wavelengths are controlled and precise, which also means that the treatment is very safe with low complications or risks involved. The ultrasound waves penetrate to the deepest skin layer, which is classically only accessed and tightened during a surgical facelift! Ultherapy tightens the underlying tissues and stimulates the growth of new collagen. An immediate tightening effect will be seen post-treatment, but the fullness of the treatment will emerge in 3 months after the collagen has developed.
The downtime following an ulthera treatment is very minimal. Patients can experience redness or swelling, but usually find that they can return to their usual activities immediately post-Ultherapy.
If you are looking for mild skin-tightening benefits, our microneedling system with the V2 Beauty Booster may be an excellent option for you. This microneedling treatment stimulates the production of collagen, resulting in skin tightening. With the added bonus of Redensity I, skin will appear more radiant and smoother with a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, improved texture, and of course, tighter skin overall. We explain here why microneedling is such a popular skincare trend right now.
Radiofrequency energy can also be used for skin tightening. It works by heating the desired area, thus triggering collagen production. Radiofrequency (RF) treatments focus on different epidermal layers than Ultherapy to achieve a firm result. This type of face skin tightening Toronto can be done on the face, neck, hands, and body. The in-office treatments are quick with little discomfort, and they require no downtime. One of the great benefits of RF skin tightening is that it is safe and suitable for all skin types. Some radiofrequency treatments combine IPL laser technology to heat the deep layers of the skin as well. This enables the treatment of multiple layers of the skin, stimulating collagen and helping create an even more effective and powerful face skin tightening Toronto treatment option. Some RF treatments require a series of treatments for optimal results.
Limitations of Skin Tightening
The amount of skin tightening that can be achieved non-surgically is limited, and patients need to be properly informed to make a quality decision and manage their expectations appropriately. Sometimes the best option is simply surgery, such as a facelift or necklift. However, here at Sovereign Skin, we aim to be honest and realistic about what our skin devices can and cannot do for you!
Multiple treatments may be required to achieve your desired results. Also, non-surgical treatments do need to be repeated periodically to maintain the skin-tightening result.
The best skin-tightening candidates are generally patients who have mild to moderate skin laxity concerns. Patients who require more dramatic skin tightening combined with skin removal would need plastic surgery. While the side effects associated with non-surgical skin tightening are very few and far between, some of these procedures are not suitable for pregnant women, people taking certain types of medications, or people who have pre-existing medical conditions.
All of our skin-tightening procedures are tailored to the individuals’ needs. Sovereign Skin offers a complimentary initial consultation, so you can find out which options are best for you!
