Skin Tightening

Skin Tightening Treatment in Bangalore

Skin aging is an inescapable event and takes place as an individual grows older. This causes the skin to naturally manifest some characteristic changes in its appearance i.e. show up fine lines, wrinkles, creepy, or sagging skin. The skin’s firmness, elasticity, and hydration all go down because of the loss of skin’s structural proteins: collagen and elastin, and the loss of hyaluronic acid that helps maintain skin hydration. What makes people look older early in their life involves multiple variables ranging from skin tone, texture, and color to loss of volume, loose/dangling skin, or wrinkles.

In recent years, many non-surgical procedures are in trend to tighten the skin of the face or any part of the body. At DNA Skin Clinic, all these treatments are performed that helps to reverse the signs of aging and offer one with a youthful look. 

Why is skin tightening performed?

Skin tightening procedures can halt or delay the process of aging temporarily by non-invasive approach and restore a smoother, firmer, and more youthful appearance. With skin tightening procedures, collagen and elastin production is more that helps skin remain smooth, plump, and firm in the areas of laxity on the face, neck, and body. 

Non-Surgical Treatment Options for Skin Tightening:

  • Thread Lift: In this non-invasive anti-aging procedure, the doctors do not excise the loose facial skin rather they insert fine, absorbable threads using thin needles in the problematic facial areas and pull the skin slightly back which gives a natural-looking lifting and tightening effect to the face, thereby making one look years younger. The skin tightening effect is also because the threads create a wound in the skin that triggers the natural healing response of the body and causes more collagen to surge to the treated areas. As a result, the skin continuously improves in its appearance. The effects of this treatment usually last around 2 years. To know more about thread lift treatment, consult the expert dermatologist at DNA Skin Clinic.
  • Laser Therapy: Laser treatment is another popular non-surgical skin tightening treatment in Bangalore offered at DNA Skin Clinic. This minimally-invasive therapy involves the use of a handheld laser device (ablative or non-ablative) that is hovered on the sagging skin to deliver high-intensity light into the skin. The lasers help heat the dermis to induce collagen and elastin production with or without thermally destroying the superficial skin layer. The collagen in the skin gets constricted which makes the skin look more firm, tighter, and less creepy. Soon after laser skin tightening, the results can be noticed immediately but one does require 3-5 laser sessions to achieve desired best results. To make the results last longer i.e. up to 3 years, do follow proper skin care including regular use of sunscreen. The procedure itself would get completed in 30-90 minutes and is particularly painless (only a pinching warm sensation is felt which is tolerable as the laser hits the skin). Laser skin tightening can be performed anywhere on the body but frequently treated areas include the face, neck, jawline, and stomach.

  • Ultrasound Skin Tightening: This treatment option involves the use of a micro-focused ultrasound to transfer the thermal energy up to 5mm below the skin surface. This works well to lift and tighten the skin of the face, neck, chin, and upper chest areas, hence reducing wrinkles. After a single session, the noticeable skin improvement is possible but the final results usually take 6 months to appear.
  • Radiofrequency (RF) Therapy: This skin-tightening treatment works subdermally and can be combined with microneedling. In this procedure, the provider uses a handheld device that releases radiofrequency which is targeted to the skin epidermis (outermost skin layer). The radiofrequency generates heat that is sent into the skin to trigger collagen production. It is an FDA-cleared anti-aging treatment for the face, neck, hands, and body. Although one can expect to see results after a single session, one may need 2-6 treatments to achieve the desired results. With the right skincare routine, the skin may not return to its original state for up to 3 years.
  • Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Treatment: In IPL therapy, instead of lasers, a slight source passing multiple wavelengths of light is used to heat the deep layers of the skin. In most cases, multiple sessions are required. This treatment is often used in adjunct with radiofrequency therapy. However, sun-tanned or darker-skinned people must avoid having them as it can cause post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

Various other anti-aging skin tightening treatments are also performed at DNA Skin Clinic by the best skin expert, Dr. Priyanka Reddy, based on an individual's unique requirements.

Q.1 Am I a suitable candidate for non-surgical skin tightening?

Ans. Most the patient’s can safely undergo non-surgical skin tightening, however, it is more likely to see the best desirable results if the person:

  • Eats a healthy, well-balanced diet
  • Is healthy and maintains stable body weight
  • Keeps his/her skin protected from sun/UV damage and never undergo indoor sun tanning with the use of tanning creams and tanning beds
  • Is bothered about mild or moderate skin laxity

Pregnant or breastfeeding women, individuals with an active skin infection or any underlying medication, and people who take certain medications that can hamper the effect of the treatment and delay healing are not recommended for skin-tightening procedures.

If you wish to check your candidacy for a skin tightening procedure, the best way is to consult Dr. Priyanka Reddy, who can help you select the best option that meets your goals and fulfills your needs. 

Q.2 What are the benefits of carrying out non-surgical skin tightening over facelift surgery?

Ans. The most remarkable feature of non-surgical skin tightening procedures is that they can address mild to moderate sagging skin of the face, neck, or any other body part without making large incisions that leave scars, use of general anesthesia, or overnight hospital stay, unlike a surgical facelift. The non-invasive anti-aging treatment options are associated with minimal risks and lower complication rates when performed by a qualified provider and require little to no downtime. Many non-invasive treatments can help achieve a visible, subtle lifting effect. 

Q.3 What foods and drinks are allowed and what isn't to manage skin aging?

Ans. If you are searching for simple strategies to keep you young both internally and externally, then pay some attention to what you put on your plate. Having an unhealthy diet can reflect your appearance. To delay natural skin aging, avoid poor-quality foods including trans fats, processed carbohydrates, excess sugars, and even heavy drinking that can rev up the aging process. However, it's recommended to switch to a Mediterranean-style diet including lean proteins, low-fat dairy, fresh fruits and vegetables, and whole grains. You must try to have more salmon (high in omega-3 fats that fight skin inflammation), tomatoes (rich in lycopene), beans and lentils (source of protein, fiber, and other nutrients), romaine lettuce (source of Vitamin A and C that curbs inflammation), and oatmeals (high in Vitamin B).
