How to Tighten Loose Skin Without Surgery

As we age we start to notice the fine lines and wrinkles that we associate with aging but slowly our skin starts to loose its internal cushioning and support as collagen and elastin levels start to deplete  and we start to experience loss of muscle tone.  Wrinkles form in all the wrong places and gravity starts to literally pull everything down, which forms into jowls and crepe skin around the neck.
Fortunately all is not lost however with technology becoming so advanced and if you are thinking about how to tighten loose skin without surgery there are now a number of treatment options available that might be worth considering.

Creams: Cosmecuticals are the new buzzword in anti aging creams.  Products that contain sophisticated skin loving ingredients that help to stimulate cellular renewal and plump out fine lines and wrinkles are beginning to emerge on to the market.   With so much choice available in order to get the best prescription it is best to consult a dermatologist or skin care specialist who will be able to diagnose your particular skin condition correctly, ensuring you have a product that suits your particular skin type.

Fillers: An injection of collagen is administered to the site of the skin under the wrinkle area in order to fill out any lines that may be of concern.  The fillers work by smoothing out the skin and plumping out fine lines and wrinkles, typically these treatments last from anywhere between 3  to 6 months.  There an anti aging procedure  that many prefer because treatment is not invasive and does not involve surgery.

Thermage: When it comes to wanting to know how to tighten loose skin conditions you could do a lot worse then looking at this particular procedure. Thermage is considered to be the creme de la creme of non invasive anti aging treatments between many physicians,  it is a relatively  pain free treatment that requires very little recovery time and gives wonderful results.  An infrared light is used on the skin to help stimulate collagen within the body which depletes as we get older, it cleverly tricks the collagen into thinking that an injury has occurred at the site of the skin which the laser has targeted with heat causing the collagen to become stimulated helping to plump out fine lines and wrinkles..

Electrical current: This is a treatment made famous by the Caci machine, it uses a process that involves electrical impulses to help stimulate muscle memory and tone, the skin tissue is then rejuvenated helping to eliminate any signs of aging.

Laser Technology: The use of laser skin tightening is becoming increasingly popular, as a non invasive way in to help restore youthful looks.  The treatment involves an infrared light targeting problem areas within the skin, which heats the deeper layers of the skin in order to encourage collagen production causing a skin tightening effect on the skin.  The laser also works to resurface the top layers of the skin encouraging new skin cells to the surface of the skin, helping to encourage cellular turnover which slows down with aging.

No matter what your treatment of choice is, it is always important to remember that before you embark on any anti aging treatments it is important to carry out research on the procedures available.  This will ensure you use a respected skin care specialist, one who has a lot of experience in dealing with non surgical treatments so that you will be safe in the knowledge that they will carry out your treatment correctly.
