You may be a candidate for skin tightening if you are bothered by loose, sagging or wrinkled skin anywhere on your face or body and are thinking of doing something about it. The next question is what kind of technique is best for you. Once that is identified, you can determine if it’s something you are willing and able to pursue. Your first step is to know all of your options. Our team at The Ferguson Clinic has the answers you need. We offer a complete range of surgical and non-surgical options for skin tightening and will be happy to evaluate your condition and give you information and advice.
Surgical and Non-Surgical Skin Tightening Options
Facelifts and eye lifts may be the first solutions that come to mind. But there are many other options, and you should explore them all before making a decision. Many skin care products claim to reduce wrinkles and tighten skin. They may produce small and temporary results, dependent on continuing use of the product, but even the best of these can only accomplish minimal results once you reach a certain age.
If you are looking for a more dramatic change, there are various techniques which work to stimulate the production of your own collagen and elastin to produce a firming effect. The effect of these treatments will be gradual and may require a number of treatments for the best results.
Qualities of a Good Candidate
Desire for change is the first sign that you are a candidate for skin tightening. But your personal health and habits will help determine whether the time is right for a particular approach to your problem. You will get the best results from non-invasive treatments if you are at a good weight and able to maintain that weight. The severity of your sagging, loose or wrinkled skin will determine whether a non-surgical treatment will work for you. The success of any treatment will be better if you don’t smoke or quit smoking.
Once you have decided to take action, knowing all the pros and cons of each technique will direct you to the best one for your own situation. Considerations include the cost of each procedure, time before results are noticeable, downtime and recovery time, and the number of treatments recommended, Your willingness and readiness to accept these conditions will help you decide.
