Loss of elasticity in the skin is part of the aging process. As collagen and elastin production decreases, it can cause the skin to sag and wrinkle. Other factors such as weight loss or sun damage can cause the skin to sag, causing excess skin in areas such as the jaw or neck.
At Modern Surgical Arts of Denver, we provide both surgical procedures and non-surgical treatments to resolve loose skin and provide skin tightening for many different areas, including the face, body, and neck. Our services in Denver, CO, offer tailored care for all of our patients, and we utilize the latest technology, techniques, and treatments.
Surgical Skin Tightening Services
Surgical skin tightening treatments involve removing loose skin to improve both sagging and wrinkling in the area of concern. This can help to reverse signs of aging and create a more youthful, contoured, and toned appearance.
A facelift surgery, also known as a rhytidectomy, can tighten the skin on the face as well as the neck while minimizing the appearance of facial wrinkles and sagging skin. We can perform a traditional or mini facelift depending on the extent of the sagging for long-lasting face skin tightening.
For noticeable neck skin tightening, a necklift can be used to improve the appearance of the neck area. A necklift can resolve jowls, sagging skin, double chin, and neck wrinkles.
A brow lift offers loose skin tightening on the forehead or brow area. This can brighten your appearance and help you look more refreshed and young.
While primarily a fat reduction procedure, VASER liposuction can provide the added benefit of skin tightening during the process. This allows for areas to look more toned and contoured after liposuction surgery.
Surgical Procedures for Other Areas
If you have loose skin on other areas such as your abdomen, arms, thighs, or buttocks, these concerns can be addressed with our full range of surgical procedures. We offer arm lifts, thigh and butt lifts, tummy tucks, and more.
Factors When Considering Surgical Skin Tightening Services
Surgical skin tightening such as a facelift or a neck lift is often suitable for patients who have more severe sagging or loose skin on their face, chin, or neck. During your consultation, we will consider your age, health, severity of concerns, lifestyle, and more to determine whether a surgical procedure or a less invasive treatment would be better in your situation.
Before and After Face and Neck Lift
Non-Surgical or Minimally-Invasive Skin Tightening Treatments
At our clinic, we understand that not everyone is ready for a surgical solution to their sagging skin. We offer non-invasive treatments at our med spa that can provide loose skin tightening and lifting without surgery.
One of our most effective treatments for skin tightening, Renuvion J-Plasma uses a combination of radiofrequency energy and helium gas to tighten and rejuvenate the skin. During this treatment, a small incision is made in the skin where a wand is inserted into the treatment area. This wand delivers helium gas and RF energy to the tissues creating a plasma field that can tighten the skin.
Laser treatments such as the Erbium laser can provide loose skin tightening by resurfacing the skin. This ablative laser can vaporize the outer layers of skin allowing healthier and tighter skin to take its place. Our laser treatments can provide neck and face skin tightening while also resolving wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, acne scarring, and more.
Chemical peels are a customizable facial treatment that can provide some face and neck skin tightening. We offer three different chemical peel treatments which can be suitable for different skin types and concerns. Chemical peels use solutions made from ingredients such as glycolic acid, salicylic acid, or trichloroacetic acid to remove the outer layers of skin and help reveal the healthy skin underneath. Depending on your level of skin laxity, we may recommend a light, medium, or deep peel.
Microneedling treatments can help stimulate collagen and elastin production in the skin, providing skin tightening and other benefits without downtime. Microneedling can be paired with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) to further rejuvenate the skin or with Amnion to signal your dormant cells to wake up again. Microneedling can provide face, chest, and stomach skin tightening depending on your specific concerns.
Factors When Considering Non-Surgical Skin Tightening Treatments
Each of our skin tightening treatments can provide different results and are suitable for different situations. When determining which treatment is right for you, we will discuss the severity of your concerns, whether there are any other concerns such as hyperpigmentation or dull skin that you want to address, and how much downtime you are willing to have.
