If you are noticing lines and wrinkles on your face along with sagging of the skin, which makes your face look dull and pale, or you want to get rid of the excess fat around your face area, Thermage skin tightening, which is Non-surgical, is the way to go!
Thermage skin tightening involves methods and treatments designed to make the skin look more firm and radiant. This treatment is completely safe and doesn’t involve invasive surgical procedures like facelifts or plastic surgeries. There is a protein in your body called collagen which helps in keeping the skin tight and young-looking; but as you begin to age, the body doesn’t produce enough collagen as it did earlier. This is why your skin will start to get loose and initially develop wrinkles on your forehead or around your eyes, cheeks, mouth, and other parts of the body.
Benefits of Non-surgical skin tightening:
1) Focus on restoring collagen levels: The focus of this treatment is on the lower layer of your skin where the collagen is located. The treatment treats deep tissues of the skin, promotes new cell growth, and focuses on radiofrequency energy which helps in boosting the growth of collagen naturally. The energy is converted into heat which contracts the fibers of your skin, immediately making it firmer and tighter.
2) All-over body benefits: Non-surgical skin tightening not only helps in restoring the facial skin. With age, even other areas of the body start to look pale and dull due to the lack of collagen in the body. Treatments can be done on your arms, legs, abdomen, breasts, vagina, and other areas wherever you feel like your skin is getting wrinkled.
3) It is safe and painless: The treatment is completely safe as it is not an invasive surgery like facelift surgery; the professionals use completely non-invasive techniques. There are ways where experts make a few tiny needle-sized punctures in your skin so that collagen is generated faster as the radiofrequency energy is directed towards the lower layer of the skin.
4) Recovery time: Traditional skin tightening surgical treatments like facelifts include scalpels and the risk of scars if the recovery procedure is not followed strictly. It also includes the use of general anesthesia in the area where it has to be operated. With non-surgical skin tightening you are free to go ahead and continue the day normally as planned. Which makes this a perfect option where you don’t want surgery or a wait of two to three weeks to recover.
5) Younger-looking skin: Non-surgical skin tightening works with your body’s natural resources to deliver results. It kind of activates the area which is needed to tighten your skin organically. It is because of such a process that the skin looks naturally beautiful as it fills in the volume of collagen required for the skin from the body itself and not with any artificial substances or processes.
6) Boosts self-esteem: Wrinkles and lines are not exactly signs of old age, they can happen at any age due to a lack of collagen in your body, which might make some people conscious about their looks. Non-surgical skin tightening helps in restoring a more youthful appearance which boosts your overall confidence. It rejuvenates your skin and makes it more smooth and radiant. It also provides a better definition of facial features like dimples, jaw, and neckline.
