What Is Skin Tightening?
How It Works
- Dermal fillers
- Chemical peels
- Laser treatments
Each individual therapy targets a specific condition to provide cumulative results. Fillers, for example, replace lost volume, while injectable neurotoxins smooth fine lines. Chemical peels improve skin clarity, and laser treatments can correct scars, wrinkles, and laxity.
This laser treatment, as stated earlier, tightens the skin for a more youthful appearance. As an added bonus, it also eliminates age spots, redness, and hyperpigmentation. The result is a fresher, more revitalized face achieved in sessions that take between 15 and 45 minutes.
This is where we describe fillers, which all work to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Some also restore volume to areas like the cheeks and under-eye hollows so you more closely resemble your glowy, dewy, and younger self. The fillers we are offer are:
Each works in a slightly different manner to achieve slightly different results. For instance, Juvederm is particularly beneficial for plumping skin and can also be injected into the lips.
Kybella addresses sagging under the chin. Radiesse is ideal for smoothing the skin around the cheeks and mouth. Restylane works much like Juvederm, while Sculptra ignites collagen production to correct deep and shallow wrinkles.
Injectables within this category work a little differently from fillers in that they inhibit muscle movement. This occurs only in the specific treatment area and only in muscles that contribute to the appearance of fine lines. Neurotoxins commonly benefit lines in the forehead and around the eyes, as well as sagging jawlines, where the skin is delicate and requires a precise application.
Because they impede movement, these injectables also prevent new wrinkles from forming. You might therefore think of them as key to an ongoing appearance of youth. For patients in the areas of Boston, Dedham, Westwood, Norwood, Canton, Sharon, Milton, Walpole, Foxboro, and Needham, we offer two neurotoxins: Botox and Xeomin.
So Many Options
Anyone who wants to rejuvenate their appearance can benefit from a variety of non-surgical therapies. The only question is: which treatment will you decide upon for yourself?
