The primary advantage of these types of treatments is that they tighten the skin without the need for surgical intervention. There is little or no discomfort, low risk of skin damage, minimal or no recovery time, and all skin types can benefit from one or more treatments. In fact, non-invasive skin tightening procedures are among the fastest growing treatments in the country. Still, they are not to be confused with a traditional face lift and do not produce the same overall results. Many cosmetic physicians now consider non-invasive skin tightening treatments an excellent adjunct to facial surgery.
Before you embark on a course for tighter skin, consult with a qualified plastic surgeon or dermatologist to learn about the benefits as well as the potential disadvantages of each procedure.
