There’s really no right answer when it comes to age and skin tightening treatments because the answer is different for everyone. Some people may notice saggy skin earlier on in their lives while others will experience issues with their skin later on, so it really comes down to what you’re after and how soon you would like to make changes and see improvements in your skin.
While there’s no specific age, there are certain treatments that are known to produce better results, so if you’re considering a skin tightening treatment and are interested in one that actually works, you may want to look into one of the following options:
Radiofrequency energy is an effective way to tighten the neck skin and jowls because it heats the collagen under the skin’s surface, which causes it to contract and create more collagen naturally. With this particular treatment, you will see a real change and a drastic improvement, especially in the neck skin, which will have a much better appearance than before. Collagen dwindles as we age, but is necessary for healthy and younger-looking skin and radiofrequency will help you achieve a youthful appearance once more. Radiofrequency energy is also effective for tightening the skin in certain areas of a person’s body, including the arms, tummy and thighs, which may develop excess skin as you get older. At First Ave Medical Spa, we use the Venus Viva Diamond Polar Applicator, which is a revolutionary tool with proven results. The best part is that the Venus Viva Diamond Polar treatment doesn’t require any anesthetic cream.
Ultrasound energy is another effective treatment option in which sound waves are used to boost collagen stored under the skin’s surface, resulting in firmer-looking skin. Based on how the energy is focused on, this type of treatment can penetrate at different depths, allowing it to skip the superficial layer of the patient’s skin to go deeper and provide more heat without actually burning the inside of the skin. This tightening treatment is ideal for the neck, chin and brow areas.
