Are you just beginning to notice a slight sagging and loss of elasticity in your skin, especially around your jawline and neckline? As we age, the rate at which our skin produces volume-enhancing collagen and the elastin that gives our skin its “snap back” begins to slow. As a result, skin starts to lose some of its firmness, tightness, and lift. We generally start to notice this in our mid-thirties, but the loss of elasticity and volume can begin as early as our twenties due to environmental and lifestyle factors. Although plastic surgery may be needed to rejuvenate skin with advanced sagging and loss of elasticity due to aging or weight loss, Skin Artisans offers several non-surgical methods to tighten your skin into a more youthful condition!

Sciton SkinTyte™ is a form of laser skin tightening that utilizes infrared energy to deeply heat dermal collagen. This process not only initiates your body’s natural healing process, which renews collagen formation, but it also causes collagen contracture, or a subtle tightening of the skin. As heat is safely delivered deep into the dermis, powerful cooling keeps the surface of your skin uninjured and comfortable. More collagen forms with each treatment and contracture is enhanced, leading to tighter, firmer, and smoother skin. SkinTyte™ is most effective on patients who are just beginning to notice sagging around their eyes, mouth, cheeks, and neckline. A treatment series is needed to see significant results, and future treatments will be required to maintain those results. SkinTyte™ has little to no downtime and can easily be performed in the summer months as well!

Sciton ProFractional™ laser resurfacing is also an effective option to tighten skin at the beginning stages of sagging but may require several days of downtime, especially if your Advanced Practice Esthetician recommends a deeper treatment or treatment series. ProFractional™ uses fractionated laser technology to ablate the surface of your skin and create deep channels of micro-injuries into the dermis. In turn, your body’s wound healing response is triggered, and collagen and elastin production is accelerated. As skin heals, it becomes tighter, smoother, and even thicker.

Physician-grade skincare can never match the results of laser, but specific ingredients can subtly tighten skin over time and prevent loss of elasticity and firmness. Key ingredients like retinol, defensins, and epidermal growth factors can stimulate collagen production and help maintain your skin’s tightness.

The daily use of an antioxidant serum and SPF can prevent free radical damage that breaks down the skin and causes it to sag. No skin tightening treatment course is complete without the complement of great skincare!
