Tissue tightening truly represents a revolutionary new method for non-surgical 3-dimensional rejuvenation. Tissue tightening is a non-invasive procedure meant to tighten and lift lax or sagging and wrinkled skin. It is based on the fact that medium to deep heating of the skin causes both immediate collagen contraction and new collagen production that occurs over a 4-6 month period.
What is Tissue Tightening?
Scientists recently discovered that light and radiofrequency energy can be used to heat deeper layers of the skin while protecting the surface of the skin. This heating activates fibroblasts signaling new collagen to form and existing collagen to tighten over time.
It is a good option for people who have mild-moderate changes and who understand that the results are noticeable but modest. These procedures represent an important and recent advance allowing dermato surgeons to achieve 3-dimensional rejuvenation of the face and body without surgery.
