Skin Tightening: Everything you want to know
The real secret to anti-aging is ensuring your skin stays firm: tight skin means younger-looking skin; it’s radiant, supple and resistant to wrinkles and fine lines. All of us want supple and soft skin, but our skin starts losing natural elasticity as we age, and in the end, we are left with sagging skin. There are several options available for skin tightening, but let’s first look at the reason of aging skin.
Reasons of Sagging Skin
As mentioned earlier, our skin reduces collagen production as we age and loses its elasticity, and our skin looks saggy and loose. Some other factors, like intrinsic aging, sun exposure, pollution, and skincare products that contain harsh chemicals and stresses of daily life, also affect our skin health, especially our face.
There are many other reasons you can develop loose skin, but you can reverse it with natural, traditional, and most advanced ways. We will discuss some options which are available to tighten the skin.
What is the best skin tightening treatment?
To reverse aging skin, there is several options available. Most advanced treatments, which include surgical and non-surgical skin tightening treatment, are most effective. While traditional ways can give you satisfactory results, those are not long-lasting and may not work for everyone. In the end, I will share some natural tips for skin tightening.
Advanced Skin Tightening Treatments
Non-invasive skin tightening through Radiofrequency
Non-invasive skin tightening and wrinkle reduction treatment through RF is one of the most common and painless beauty treatments available nowadays. Several treatments promise to tighten and firm your skin, but if you want a real change, then most experts recommend treatment through Radiofrequency. RF energy heats the collagen under skin’s surface, which will contract and naturally create more collagen. As we all know, Collagen is the building block of younger and healthy skin. This is a maximum 30 minutes treatment (depends on the area being treated) with no downtime. Before getting the treatment, you should consult with your skincare specialists. They can analyze your skin condition and tell you exactly if this treatment will give you the results according to your expectations and how many sessions you may need to get an ideal result. The cost of no surgical skin tightening through RF depends on the treatment area and the number of sessions you may need.
Non-surgical skin tightening techniques can be used to treat the following skin areas.
- Full Face
- Hands and arms
- Eyebrow Raise, Eye Laxity, and Under Eye
- Bra Line
- Front and Back Thighs
The second most advanced skin tightening treatment is the facelift, also known as rhytidectomy. This is a surgical procedure usually performed by a doctor. The doctor removes the excess facial skin to make the face appear younger with tight skin during the surgery. The facelift is considered the gold standard to address the signs of aging facial skin. The facelift is helpful to redefine the jawline, repair loose skin, and improve facial contours. It is the most expensive beauty treatment with some significant side effects. The treatment is not suitable for you if you have any health issues or taking certain medications.
Traditional Skin Tightening Methods
Like Olive oil, fish, and rosemary oil, some other oils are used to massage the skin. These oils deeply penetrate the skin layers and revive the skin cells. As a result, your skin keeps nourished, hydrated, and tightened. Regular massage can keep your skin healthy and fresh.
You can make your own skin tightening facemask with white egg and lemon juice. Also, these types of the mask can be found online. Egg white is rich in protein that helps enhance the elasticity of the skin to a great extent. You should regularly use these facemasks to firm your skin.
Regular facial treatment is helpful to resolve many skin issues, including sagging skin. A facial helps to detoxify your skin and remove dead cells. Some experts say this spa treatment can also help redevelop collagen, because face massage during facial boosts the regeneration of skin cells, and as a result, you can have younger-looking firm skin.
Natural Skin Tightening Tips
Wash Face Properly
Wash your face at least twice daily. It would be best if you washed your face before going to bed because your face catches dirt and germs throughout the day. Hence by washing your face, you will remove these impurities from your skin. Apply moisturizing lotion if you have dry skin.
Drink Plenty of Water
By drinking at least eight glasses of water in a day, you can keep yourself hydrated. Fruits and vegetables that could add water, ensuring your skin looks healthy. You may add lemon to the water for extra enrichment.
If you want healthy skin, you must have to sleep at least 8 hours in 24 hours. You can see early aging signs in most people who do not sleep enough.
Smoking speed up the aging process by breaking down elastin and collagen and depriving your skin of oxygen. So quit smoking if you want to see early aging signs.
A balanced diet can also help to keep your skin fresh and healthy. You should include vegetables, fruits, and milk in your daily diet. You can also take a certain supplement after consulting with your healthcare specialist.
Avoid Certain Skincare Products
Never use skin care products without consulting your skin care specialist. Some skincare products are made for certain types of skin and conditions. Some products may contain some harsh chemical which can harm your skin if you use them regularly. So always consult before buying any skincare product.
