It is surfing season again, and Honolulu is ripe with tourists looking to experience life on the Island. It is also a time when people start thinking about their cosmetic interests and wanting to make changes to the way they look. Often these changes are for purely aesthetic purposes—especially if they are going to be spending any time among the locals and other tourists crowding up the beaches. Looking great and youthful is a virtue, and often these aesthetic goals require cosmetic procedures that involve some method of skin tightening.
The great thing about skin tightening is that so many approaches exist to help anyone get this effect. Of course, this can be achieved through a full-on facelift, but even folks who do not have the time, nor the inclination, to go through such a lengthy recovery have viable options that serve as alternatives.
One way to get the skin tightening effect is to use a laser system to remove the surface layers of a patient’s facial skin. Laser resurfacing is a popular alternative to a facelift, and when the old skin goes away and the new skin replaces it, the new skin tends to be tighter and more youthful in appearance. This helps to keep the wrinkles and lines at bay for quite some time.
Radio Frequency Treatments
This is a skin tightening procedure where radio frequency energy is used to penetrate the top layers of the skin in order to reach the tissue in the deeper layers. The radio frequency energy is carefully-controlled in order to ensure precision and patient comfort. This is another popular alternative to a facelift that has many people in Honolulu happy with the results.
