Has your skin lost its elasticity? Are there signs of skin laxity around the eyes, mouth, face or neck line? If so, it’s time to try one of the tightening and firming therapies that Cosmetic Dermatology offers nowadays.
The Fractional Laser is one of the most effective treatments for face and neck skin tightening.
By stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin, it restores the skin’s elasticity. It reshapes the facial contour, and gives the area around the eyes and neck a more youthful appearance.
Fractional Laser can be applied as monotherapy or in combination with autologous PRP mesotherapy, offering better tightening results, as it enhances the production of new collagen. The combination of Fractional Laser with PRP is called Total Plasma Lift.
Another innovative therapy for face and neck skin tightening is the PDO threads. PDO threads are fully bioabsorbable threads that are introduced under the skin where they form a mesh. As they dissolve, they gradually lead to the production of collagen, which tightens and lifts the skin on the face and neck.
The third key facial skin tightening treatment uses the technology of Ultrasound and radio frequencies (Ultrasound-RF). Biporal radiofrequency activates the fibroblasts in the epidermis to produce new collagen and elastin, resulting in the tightening of the skin on the face and neck. All the above therapies may be combined to achieve the best possible results.
Facial skin tightening treatments may also be combined with other cosmetic dermatology treatments such as:
FAQ’s on Facial Skin Tightening
Fractional Laser is a CO2 laser, a therapeutic device that has been used in medicine for 4 decades and has been proven to be completely safe for face rejuvenation. Moreover, PRP autologous mesotherapy uses the patient’s own blood to derive the platelet rich plasma used for the treatment, and thus is completely safe as there is no risk of allergic reactions. It requires 5-7 sessions with one-month treatment intervals, and the result may last over one year and a half.
Ultrasound – RF is preferable for treating smaller problems of face and neck skin laxity and requires more sessions (10-12) to achieve the final result. It is also a painless and side-effect-free method, the results of which last approximately one year.
The PDO threads are used to address more accentuated sagging problems, or when the patient does not wish to be subjected to repeated sessions, as only one session is required to insert the treads under the epidermis. The PDO threads are recommended when we want to achieve both skin tightening and a lifting result on the face and neck.
These three key skin tightening treatments can be combined with excellent results, as follows: Treatment with Ultrasound-RF should be applied first, followed by a treatment cycle of Total Plasma Lift. PDO threads will be applied next, wherever required, to achieve the face lift.
