Skin Tightening in San Francisco Skin tightening is a process of rejuvenation for sagging skin in the face and neck areas due to aging, dramatic weight loss, severe injury or medical condition. Aging signs for the most part are unwelcomed by men and women, but they are inevitable. Modern cosmetic technology makes it possible for you to refresh your appearance through non-surgical and surgical procedures.* As your body ages, so does your face as it droops due to forces of gravity, lack of skin laxity, sun damage, stresses of daily living and poor skin quality. When simple lifestyle changes, such as muscle building and dietary changes have failed to produce noticeable results, then you may search for a cosmetic surgeon to help address your skin laxity.*

When to Consider Skin Tightening

Knowing when it is the most appropriate time to endure treatment will depend on several factors including the location of sagging skin, prior treatment, medical history and tolerance of downtime. Patients who are contemplating skin tightening should be experiencing one of the following:
  • Mild or moderate loose skin on the face or neck*
  • Residual skin laxity after a previous invasive procedure*
  • Skin quality makes you look unhealthy*
  • Facial creams and cures have failed to produce effective results*

Recovery Time

Nonsurgical procedures do require minimal down time, and since swelling is minor most patients are able to get back to their normal activities within a few hours. Mild swelling and redness may occur and make you feel the need to take the rest of the day off, but it is not mandatory unless you undergo a more invasive procedure.*

Skin Tightening Results

Many nonsurgical skin tightening treatments are capable of achieving results that last from one to three years. Follow-up procedures may need to be repeated in order to maintain skin tightness. Patients who undergo skin tightening treatment notice relief in their appearance from the following:
  • Tightening and smoothing of skin reduces appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.*
  • Diminish sagging skin around jowls and along the neck.*
  • Reduction of double chin.*
  • Improved skin laxity and skin tone.*
Depending on the severity of your skin will determine the number of treatments to achieve the results you desire. Maintaining a relationship with your plastic surgeon will ensure that your facial beauty is intact and attractive for years to come.*
