There is no way out!

But there are ways, which can help delay this process of aging and make one look BEAUTIFUL and AGELESS!

Let’s pause, breathe deep and hold our excitement as we read about the benefits, process and get to know where to find the experts in the field of SKIN TIGHTENING.

Gone are the days when skin tightening was painful, costly and time taking. With the revolution in the field of ‘Radiofrequency’, it has become a safer and more effective treatment for skin tightening.

 What is Skin Tightening?

Skin tightening is a treatment to make the skin firm, youthful and fresh. It’s non-surgical. It tightens up the loose skin, reduces wrinkles and sagged skin.

In the 21st century, there are an ample amount of ways to get this treatment done. Radiofrequency skin tightening is the most popular process as it is nearly painless and doesn't need long recovery time matching a busy day-to-day schedule.

How is skin tightening done? [Radiofrequency procedure]

The heat generated by the radiofrequency (RF) to fix the tissue stimulates sub-dermal collagen production. Collagen growth reduces the appearance of fine lines and loose skin. In simple terms, this method remodels the tissue and produces a new structure of the skin to maintain both elasticity and firmness of the skin.

It is advisable to select the right clinical practitioner for the treatment as the procedure is not risk-free. A skilled and experienced clinician can reduce the risk of complications significantly. Dr. Parag Telang’s ‘Designer Bodyz’ is one of the most renowned cosmetic clinics in Mumbai where all kinds of cosmetic procedures are done keeping the international standards in mind.

5. What to expect during and after the procedure?
A plastic surgeon or dermatologist does radiofrequency skin treatment. It's an instant procedure, meaning one will not have to stay overnight. Wrinkles around the eyes, mouth, and forehead may be treated individually, or the entire face will be treated depending on the procedure selected mutually by the doctor and the patient. General anaesthesia and local anaesthesia will be given for small areas or the whole face accordingly. For small area treatment, a local anaesthetic will be needed, and the doctor may also sedate the patient. When the whole face is being treated, one may require general anaesthesia.
6. What results one can expect?
After the treatment, the skin will look more fresh and youthful. As circulation improves in the treated area, the skin looks more refreshed. Skin pores become less visible. Wrinkles and fine lines are reduced and the skin will pump up!
7. How long does the treatment last?
Doctors recommend going through RF skin tightening for several months for optimum results. The course is of approximately six sittings. The treatment will improve the skin condition for up to 12 weeks post-treatment so we can say that the skin will keep on improving for months after completing the duration of treatment.
8. How does the skin tightening works?
Radio waves are used for the stimulation of collagen growth. Collagen in simple terms is a framework, which protects the skin to fight damage in it. As the collagen growth increases, the skin start starts to gain its natural elasticity back resulting in reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.
9. Is it a myth that skin sagging is caused by weight loss?
No! It is true. Gaining weight stretches the skin and increases the padding in the body. When one loses this extra weight, the skin tightens. Later with age, when the skin is meant to lose elasticity, it stretches again. Now, this skin won’t bounce the same way it did when we were young.
10. Is it possible to prevent skin sagging?
Well, skin sagging doesn’t have much to prevent, but there are a few measures which if taken care at an early stage can slow this process down. It is very important to protect the skin from the damage caused by sun radiations by applying SPF daily. Apart from this, a healthy diet plays a major role in the skin and all-round health. Keep a check on the nutrition in the diet and avoiding rapid weight loss can minimize sagging skin.
