Time is often unkind to the youthful appearance of your skin. No matter how proactive you are with your health and skincare regimens, loose, sagging skin and wrinkles will inevitably become a reality as time goes on. These aging symptoms are the result of fundamental structural proteins in the skin—collagen and elastin—slowing their reproduction due to the slowed cellular turnover that occurs with age, in turn, causing firm and smooth skin to lose its internal support structure and sag and wrinkle.
At Body Symmetry MD, our anti-aging and wellness experts offer a variety of nonsurgical and noninvasive skin tightening services designed to lift, tighten and restore youthfulness to your skin without any discomfort or downtime. Whether you are interested in banishing stubborn lines and wrinkles or firming up and toning lax skin, our talented team of providers can help you discover a treatment that’s right for you. Schedule your complimentary consultation with us today to learn more about any of the following skin tightening options that can help you attain a smoother, tighter and more youthful-looking you.
Microcurrent Skin Toning
Facial aging doesn’t just occur in the skin, but in all soft tissues of the face and neck. As you get older and your skin naturally loses its firmness and elasticity, the gravitational descent of skin, connective tissues and facial muscles all begin to elongate and sag, resulting in loose facial tissues. Microcurrent skin toning is a remarkable anti-aging treatment that utilizes gentle and low-level electrical currents to tone facial muscles beneath the skin’s surface and increase circulation, oxygen and lymphatic flow to lax facial tissues.
Microcurrent skin toning passes two handheld prongs over the face that deliver tiny electrical currents directly into facial muscles tissues. Safe for all skin types, these microcurrents work to simultaneously repair and stimulate collagen production deep within the underlying layers of skin while lifting and smoothing the surface layer of the skin for a firm and refreshed appearance. This process creates adenosine triphosphate (ATP) production, which enhances the growth of structural proteins in the skin and energizes the muscles in the body.
Unlike anywhere else on your body, your facial muscles are connected directly to your facial skin, so energizing these muscles provides an immediate lift and rejuvenation. In addition to the instantly visible lift results, microcurrent skin toning also provides cumulative effects that continue to improve over time. In clinical trials, microcurrent facials were proven to increase the production of collagen up to 14 percent, elastin by 48 percent and blood circulation in the treated area by 38 percent. With a series of microcurrent treatments, patients can expect lasting facelift results without any pain or downtime for recovery.
Radiofrequency Skin Tightening
Radiofrequency (RF) skin tightening is an innovative new technology in anti-aging treatments that allow patients to firm and tighten relaxed skin and target fine lines and wrinkles to restore a younger and smoother appearance. RF skin tightening delivers gentle, temperature-controlled RF energy deep into underlying layers of the skin to produce tissue remodeling effects that instantly causes your skin to contract. Safe for all skin types and tones, RF skin tightening will not only lift and tighten your skin immediately without surgery or discomfort but will continue to produce new collagen and elastin fibers for stronger and younger-looking skin.
The effects of RF skin tightening will continue to enhance your appearance for up to three months after your treatment with results lasting as long as two years, depending on the severity of your concerns. While patients can expect dramatic and noticeable improvements to their complexion in just one treatment, typically a course of six treatments spaced two to three weeks apart is recommended for the most optimal rejuvenation results. After the completion of your treatment series, a maintenance treatment scheduled every two to four months will help you to prolong the tightened and smooth appearance of your skin.
With modern advances in cosmetic technology and treatments, skin tightening procedures are no longer limited to invasive surgical procedures that require you to go under the knife. At Body Symmetry MD, our physician-guided nonsurgical treatments can help you to turn back the clock on your aging skin so that you look and feel like your best self.
