As we get older, our skin loses some of its innate elasticity. This is really just a fancy way of saying that, if you pull on your skin, it does not snap back into place quite as quickly. One of the results of this is that your skin may start to sag, particularly around the cheeks, under the chin, or at the top of the neck. The loss of skin elasticity is also one of the causes of wrinkles and fine lines.
The good news is that there are a number of non-invasive and minimally invasive skin tightening treatments that can tighten your skin, restoring you to a smoother facial appearance. We offer several such treatments here at Carolina Age Management Institute. In fact, the best way to determine the best skin tightening treatment for your face and neck is to schedule a consultation here at our Huntersville Med Spa or Greensboro Med Spa practice.
What is the Best Skin Tightening Treatment for Face and Neck?
As you consider your options, here are a few treatments we especially recommend for treating loose, saggy skin on the face or neck.
One of the best skin tightening treatments for face and neck is Morpheus8. This is a very sophisticated device that combines the benefits of microneedling with the advantages of radiofrequency (RF) energy.
Morpheus8 radio frequency microneedling uses a series of countless, tiny needles to create “micro trauma” to your skin. These tiny injuries trigger the body’s natural healing abilities, including the stimulation of collage production. Collagen is one of the essential factors in skin elasticity. By combining microneedling with RF heat energy, you can get a much firmer, tighter, and more youthful-looking appearance.
Another popular option to address sagging skin on the face and neck is FaceTite. FaceTite works in much the same way that Morpheus8 does, relying on RF energy to jumpstart natural collagen production.
Specifically, tiny access points are created in the skin. Through those access points, your provider will insert a thin, metal rod, which is used to distribute RF energy in a safe and controlled way. This can be a great way to tighten the skin and to minimize the appearance of jowling, sagging skin around the chin, and sagging skin at the top of the neck.
BodyTite is actually a variant of the FaceTite application, allowing us to eliminate some unwanted fat and flab while tightening up the skin.
While this is primarily considered to be a body sculpting treatment, it is also very effective for use addressing significant extra skin under the chin or at the top of the neck. We definitely consider it one of the all-around best skin tightening treatments for face and neck application.
4) Plasma Pen
One of our newest treatment options is the Plasma Pen Charlotte NC. This is a non-invasive treatment option that triggers natural collagen production, resulting in tighter, healthier, and more youthful-looking skin.
Because it emits energy in a highly focused, controlled way, the Plasma Pen can be a great option for restoring collagen and elastin production to several parts of the face. Common treatment areas for the Plasma Pen include:
- Upper and lower eyelids
- Crow’s feet
- Marionette lines
- Smoker’s lines
- Lifting of the mid-face area
- Lifting of the top part of the neck
5) Laser Facelift (Laser Skin Resurfacing)
Finally, the best skin tightening treatment for face and neck is to get what we call a “laser facelift,” or as it is more commonly known, laser skin resurfacing. This procedure involves the use of lasers to remove damaged or blemished areas of the skin, revealing healthy and clear skin beneath. Laser skin resurfacing can also stimulate collagen, resulting in a tighter and firmer facial appearance. It belongs on any list of the best skin tightening treatments for face and neck.
