Skin tightening is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment designed to firm and tighten loose skin, resulting in a more youthful appearance. As we age, our skin loses elasticity, leading to sagging, wrinkles, and fine lines. Skin tightening procedures work by stimulating collagen production, which helps to tighten and lift the skin.
At Aesthetic Options, we offer a range of skin tightening treatments, including radiofrequency (RF), high intensity frequency ultrasound (HIFU), carboxy therapy and plasma skin tightening.
Radiofrequency is a skin rejuvenation and tightening procedure which uses electric energy to heat the skin’s deeper layers without damaging the surface of the skin. The heat encourages cell turnover and induces the stimulation of elastin and collagen production which are responsible for youthful looking skin’s tone, firmness and elasticity.
High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is a new-generation skin tightening and lifting treatment that is rapidly gaining in popularity as a non-invasive, minimal pain and no downtime alternative to a facelift. HIFU uses focused ultrasound pulses that penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin; these high energy pulses cause a tightening of existing collagen bundles and also stimulate new collagen formation.
Carboxy Therapy has been touted as the biggest beauty breakthrough since dermal fillers and is rapidly becoming known as one of the leading skin rejuvenation treatment in aesthetic medicine. Carboxy Therapy involves injecting tiny amounts of medical grade carbon dioxide (CO2) beneath the skin to break down fatty deposits and stimulate collagen production. It is a safe, minimally invasive and clinically proven method to rejuvenate, restore, and recondition the skin with the ability to treat wrinkles, laxity, cellulite and stretch marks. The treatment has no downtime and a single session can take between 15-30 minutes.
Our skin tightening treatments are ideal for individuals who have mild to moderate skin laxity and want to avoid surgical options. Our experienced team of skincare professionals will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan based on your skin type, concerns, and desired results.
If you’re looking for a non-invasive way to tighten and lift your skin, skin tightening treatments may be the perfect solution for you. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and learn more about how we can help you achieve your skincare goals.
