Face The Facts Of Skin TighteningJuly 7, 2015
What is Skin Tightening?
Let’s face the facts of skin tightening, it’s a mind boggling field. Skin tightening treatments doesn’t need to be a pain in the face. For people who want to banish wrinkles and sagging skin as a result from sun baking, smoking or due to the natural ageing process, consider Thermage or our new SkinTight with Ultrasound treatment at Rejuvenation Clinics of Australia.
Both treatments involve machines that heat the skin tissue using either radio frequency or ultrasound waves. The heat then stimulates collagen production, a protein that’s responsible for maintaining the skin’s youthful appearance.
“The results from any of our skin tightening treatments are great,” says Dr Garry Cussell, the principal doctor at Rejuvenation Clinics of Australia. “Some look 5 to 10 years younger, while others simply look more refreshed.” Clinical trials conducted by Cornell Medical School in New York showed that nonablative skin tightening treatments such as Thermage often provide good results, due to the ability of these treatments being able to deliver higher energy levels to reach higher temperatures more rapidly.
When Did The Use Of Skin Tightening Treatments Start?
Using radio frequency and ultrasound waves to reduce the appearance of wrinkles started in the early 2000s. Originally used as an eye wrinkle treatment, the use of Thermage later extended to the face. The advantage of Thermage is due to its cooling mechanism, which provides a pleasant vibration to distract patients from the heat.
The other popular skin tightening treatment, SkinTight with Ultrasound is another fantastic option. Due to the big handpiece, SkinTight with Ultrasound can be used to cover bigger body parts such as the arms, thighs and abdomen, for those who want to reduce the appearance of cellulite on their body, this is one treatment you should consider. The machine uses ultrasound energy to penetrate 4.5 mm below the skin surface to treat the fibrous tissue, in order to stimulate collagen production within the skin. Both treatments may not be the most comfortable procedures, but it’s extremely effective in reducing sagging necklines, jowls and loose skin.
How much does the skin tightening procedure cost?
The treatment is popular with women looking for a less invasive method to rejuvenate their appearance. However, there are a number of men are using skin tightening treatments to reduce their sagging jawline. Costs will vary depending on the area being treated. For a full face, it may be around $2,500, and these must be repeated to obtain long-lasting results.
