Facial Skin Tightening
As you get older, your production of collagen slows. Exposure to UV rays and other skin damage can also impact the skin. Some of the most noticeable changes to the facial skin as it ages from these factors are sagging, lines and wrinkles. At LM Medical NYC, skin specialists can perform minimally-invasive facial skin tightening at our medical clinic in Manhattan.
The facial lines, wrinkles and sagging skin that occur with aging are indicators of changes in the skin’s structure. Less collagen and breakdown of the skin’s structure causes it to become thinner and weaker. Lines and wrinkles appear as the skin loses its firmness and tone. The brows, eyes, jowls, jawline and neck can all reveal the signs of aging as the skin loses its elasticity. One cosmetic dermatology option to slow and even reverse this aging process is facial skin tightening treatments.
Minimally-Invasive Skin Firming Treatments
To improve the firmness and elasticity of the skin, certain treatments can be used that impact the internal structure. Collagen induction therapy, or CIT, like microneedling and laser treatment, can help improve the firmness and elasticity of the skin, helping diminish lines and wrinkles. Another effective and minimally-invasive facial skin tightening treatment we offer at LM Medical NYC is ultrasound treatments with Ultherapy.
Ultherapy is an FDA-approved treatment for skin tightening that can be safely used on the face. This treatment uses ultrasound energy to reach deeper layers of tissue and skin to induce collagen production, resulting in facial skin tightening.
If you are noticing mild to moderate skin laxity in the face and neck resulting in sagging, wrinkles and lines, minimally-invasive skin tightening treatments are available.
