One of the hallmarks of aging is a noticeable increase in skin laxity or skin looseness. As we age, our body produces less collagen and elastin, the two proteins in skin that are responsible for a plush, youthful skin appearance. At Elements Rejuvenating Med Spa in Davenport, FL we believe we can restore the balance of your skin’s natural regenerative properties with science-based techniques, such as skin tightening treatments.
What Is Skin Tightening?
A skin tightening treatment is any technique that is used to correct skin laxity to firm, lift, and tighten the appearance of skin. These treatments are usually for anti-aging, but it is also common for these treatments to sculpt fat deposits in the body. Treatments for tightening the skin can be surgical, minimally invasive, or non-invasive.
Treatments for skin tightening can be used to correct many skin concerns, including:
- Improving skin laxity on the jowls, chin, and neck
- Reducing the appearance of expression lines
