Many of our patients in Austin are looking for skin tightening procedures because of aging or losing a significant amount of weight. You have quite a few treatment options when it comes to sagging skin, some of which do not even require surgery. Here at Ideal Weight and Skin, we would be happy to help you look at some of the more popular skin tightening treatments to better help you determine which procedure would most benefit you and your individual needs.
Laser Skin Tightening
If you’re looking for a minimally invasive skin tightening procedure, laser skin tightening makes an excellent choice. We use a laser to tighten your skin by directing thermal energy under the surface, which causes your skin to tighten and form new collagen fibers for a reduction in skin laxity. You should notice some results soon after your laser skin tightening treatment.
Facial fillers offer good skin tightening benefits using a minimally invasive technique. Fillers contain substances like hyaluronic acid to increase your facial volume and smooth wrinkles and creases. They are not for cases of severe skin laxity but work quite well when you are only dealing with light to moderate wrinkles and creases or wish to postpone cosmetic surgery.
Micro-Needling with PRP
This revolutionary skin tightening technique in Austin utilizes the healing power of your own blood to rejuvenate your complexion. In the micro-needling procedure, a specialized device is used to create thousands of microscopic channels in your skin; this stimulates the production of collagen, the key protein responsible for structural integrity and resilience in your skin. Then, a small amount of your blood is draw and spun in a centrifuge, which helps to separate the platelet-rich plasma (PRP.) THis substance is then applied to your face, where the PRP growth factors help invigorate your facial skin and supply it a newfound radiance.
