Look Your Best Through the Holidays with Help from Skin Tightening

The winter holidays mean a lot of social gatherings, food and drink—and time in front of the camera. If you’re frustrated with the way your skin is aging, you might consider exploring the benefits of skin tightening.

Although all of us will eventually succumb to wrinkles, why look older than you have to? Skin tightening procedures use noninvasive techniques to improve the outer appearance of your skin. There’s very little downtime involved, and you can look years younger without surgery. Here are some skin treatments to get before the holidays.

What is skin tightening?

As we age, our skin loses its ability to produce elastin and collagen. This is what leads to sagging, wrinkly or crepey skin. It’s natural, but very few people are thrilled about their new look.

Typically, skin tightening treatments use concentrated energy (such as light or heat) to target the deeper layers of your skin, encouraging it to produce more elastin and collagen. They can also improve the skin tone and texture (such as cellulite-specific treatments).

There’s very little downtime involved, and the results can last as long as a year. Results appear days to weeks later. If you’re frustrated with the signs of aging, it might be time to consider skin tightening.

Types of skin tightening treatments

Here are some of the most popular types of skin tightening treatments:

  • Ultrasound: Ultrasound therapy uses targeted ultrasounds to penetrate the skin up to 5 mm deep. This can be used on the face, neck and chest to lift and tighten the skin. Results may appear up to six months after treatment, but in most cases, they are visible within days.
  • Radiofrequency: Radiofrequency treatments treat the outer layer of your skin—specifically, the face, neck, hands and body. This treatment requires two to three sessions for maximum efficacy, but the results can last up to a year with the right skincare.
  • Laser: Laser treatments can be used on the belly and the arms, especially, to tighten the skin. These treatments work by destroying the outer layer of skin to get to the layers underneath.
  • IPL: Intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments use various light wavelengths to target the deeper layers of your skin. Typically, several treatments are needed to get the full effect.

These treatments might be used in conjunction with other techniques, such as microneedling, to deliver fuller and more effective results.
