Loose, sagging skin can range from mild to severe. When you are on the more mild side of the spectrum, procedures like surgical facelifts are not necessary. Instead, you can consider non-surgical, often minimally-invasive treatments to help life and rejuvenate your face. Skin tightening comes in many forms, so you can choose the right one for you.
Tight, smooth skin is essential for looking youthful and vibrant. Here at Rejuvené MD, we offer a few different treatments to help you accomplish your goals. Visit our practice in El Paso if you are interested in learning more, or contact us today to schedule your consultation!
The two most important components to keeping our skin firm and tight are collagen and elastin. Unfortunately, after we turn 30, our production of these proteins drastically reduces. Treatments like radiofrequency use heat to stimulate collagen and elastin to start producing again. This treatment can be used virtually anywhere on the body and face.
Microneedling also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, but it does this by using tiny needles to microscopically damage the skin. When these micro-channels are created, growth factors rush to the site to regenerate the skin. This is the same thing that happens when normal injuries occur, but microneedling happens on such a small scale that there is no risk of scarring.
On the opposite end of the spectrum for skin tightening, fillers are a way to replace lost volume. Instead of stimulating collagen and elastin, most fillers simply replace lost volume with synthetic materials. Static wrinkles can easily be erased with a few filler treatments, which can be repeated as often as necessary to maintain the results. The most popular type of filler contains hyaluronic acid, which is a synthetic version of a natural joint lubricant in the body.
