Skin Rejuvenation Treatments That Might Help The Sagging And Loose Skin On Your Face

If you have loose skin on your face, you might be looking into skin rejuvenation treatments that will tighten your skin and help you look younger. Skin tightening can be done in a couple of ways. One is to physically pull the skin tight, and the other is to cause your skin to produce collagen so your skin tightens over time. Here's how these skin rejuvenation treatments are done.

PDO Threads Pull Skin Tight

If you're trying to avoid surgery, you may not want a facelift that tightens your skin. PDO threads do a similar job by pulling your skin so it looks tighter and lifted. The threads are inserted under your skin and are threaded so they pick up the skin and pull it to the outside of your face in an upward lifting motion.

The threads are surgical suture threads so they're safe, and they dissolve gradually. You'll get an instant lift from PDO threads and also a gradual tightening effect since they stimulate collagen production.

Heat Treatments Encourage Collagen Growth

Lasers, radiofrequency, and ultrasound treatments transmit heat to the deep layers of your skin. The heat causes controlled damage that causes your skin to go into repair mode. When your skin repairs damaged tissues, it produces more collagen. More collagen helps your skin tighten and lift. However, it takes time and usually multiple treatments to get the effect you want.

Microneedling Damages Your Skin With Needles

Microneedling has the same effect of helping your skin produce more collagen, except it causes damage with needle punctures rather than heat. Microneedling can be combined with radiofrequency treatments so you get needle punctures and heat at the same time for an even greater effect. Plus, skin serums are used along with microneedling so the serums can soak deep into your skin to help rejuvenate it.

Chemicals Cause Old Skin To Peel Off

Chemical peels can also tighten skin, although their effect may not be as dramatic as PDO threads. However, chemical peels provide other benefits for your skin besides tightening. Since they peel away the top layer of skin, the peel can remove discolorations, eliminate fine wrinkles, and reveal fresh clear skin below. In addition to helping your face look tighter, a chemical peel can help improve the texture and appearance of your skin.

The skin rejuvenation treatment you select will depend on the condition of your skin and the degree of your sagging. A doctor helps you make your choice by managing your expectations. If you have a lot of sagging, surgery might be the best and quickest way to tighten your skin. However, there are other treatments to consider if you have mild or moderate sagging or if you just want to avoid surgery.
