Loose skin on your face and neck can make you look older than you really are. There are two major reasons you may experience loose skin as you age. First and foremost, aging leads to collagen loss, which is the protein that gives your skin its elasticity and firmness. Secondly, aging can cause you to lose facial fat and make your skin appear droopy.
The good news is you can tighten loose skin on your face and neck and you don’t have to undergo surgery to do so! There are two non-invasive skin tightening treatments, Ultherapy® and Venus Diamond-Polar™ that can get the job done. Let’s take a closer look at how they work.
Ultherapy® is the only FDA-approved treatment that can lift the skin via ultrasound imaging. Through ultrasound imaging, our expert providers can clearly see your layers of tissue and make sure the energy is deposited in the right areas.
You can use Ultherapy® to lift the skin on your neck, midface, jawline, under the chin, and even on your eyebrows. While treatment times vary from patient to patient, you can expect your treatment to last anywhere from 60 to 90 minutes.
Venus Diamond-Polar™ uses multi-polar radiofrequency and pulsed magnetic fields to generate a soothing and therapeutic heat matrix over your skin. Since the multi-polar radio frequency causes a thermal reaction in the tissue, which stimulates your body’s natural healing response, it can tighten your skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Most treatments take about 30 to 40 minutes and you can expect to see beautiful results as your treatment series progresses.
Good Candidates for Non-Invasive Skin Tightening
If you are bothered by mild to moderate skin laxity as a result of aging or weight fluctuations, you may benefit from one of these non-invasive skin tightening treatments. It can provide you with temporary relief from loose skin on your neck and/or face. If you’re searching for faster, more dramatic results, however, a facelift may be a better option.
