What Age Should I Start Nonsurgical Skin Tightening Treatment?

Featured Image

As we age, our skin’s elasticity changes because elastin and collagen decrease in our bodies. Over time, this leads to our skin becoming saggy and loose, resulting in lines and wrinkles. When you want to improve your skin’s texture, tighten loose skin, or restore skin tone, consider nonsurgical skin tightening at Nirvana Med Spa in Little Rock, AR. This treatment uses the Alma Harmony XL Pro laser technology, which stimulates elastin and collagen production. This helps treat sagging facial skin. When you want to learn if laser skin tightening is good for you, schedule a consultation with Dr. Abeer Hashmi to learn more information about the procedures and the benefits of nonsurgical skin tightening.

What causes sagging skin?

There are many reasons for sagging skin, including:

  • Aging: As your skin ages, it loses elastin, which gives the skin elasticity. This leads to loose or sagging skin.

  • Smoking: Cigarette smoke can cause a decrease in elastin and collagen production.

  • Too much sun exposure: Too much time in the sun can speed up skin aging.

  • Weight loss: Extra weight can cause damage to collagen and elastin fibers, which makes it harder for your skin to return to its normal place after losing weight. Sagging skin is more likely in patients who have lost weight rapidly.

Who makes a great candidate for nonsurgical skin tightening in Little Rock, AR?

Surgical skin tightening or lift is similar to a facelift. However, for those who aren’t interested in plastic surgery or aren’t an ideal candidate for it, nonsurgical skin tightening can work well. At Nirvana Med Spa, we use this treatment on most areas of the face and body, including under the chin, the abdominals, upper arms, and inner or outer thighs.

The best candidate for this nonsurgical skin tightening is someone who:

  • Is in good health

  • Is at or near a healthy weight

  • Has mild or medium skin laxity

  • Has signs of aging, including wrinkles, fine lines, frown lines, or smile lines

  • Wants to subtly change how their skin looks

During a consultation with Dr. Hashmi, you can learn whether you’re suited for this skin tightening treatment.

What age should I start getting nonsurgical skin tightening treatment?

Dr. Hashmi doesn’t have any specific age requirements. It ultimately depends on the laxity of your skin and if you want to improve your complexion. Some younger patients may experience loose or sagging skin that others may not. This means that patients of all ages can safely have nonsurgical skin tightening at Nirvana Med Spa. Usually, we recommend starting a treatment plan at age 30 if you’re not a smoker or have excessive sun damage.

How is nonsurgical skin tightening performed?

To begin, we clean your treatment areas to remove any oil, dirt, or makeup. If necessary, we will apply local anesthesia, which helps you tolerate any discomfort. After your skin is thoroughly cleaned, we will pass the handheld device over your skin. Dr. Hashimi will repeat this as necessary to help you achieve your goals. The energy used stimulates elastin and collagen production, which will help firm and tighten your skin. Based on the size of your treatment area and the number of them, your procedure can take 30 – 90 minutes.

What to expect after your skin tightening treatment

After your nonsurgical skin tightening treatment, your skin may be red, numb, or inflamed. This is normal and should subside in a few days. During your consultation at Nirvana Med Spa, we will provide aftercare instructions to help you achieve your results. Collagen and elastin production can be a slow process, so you may not see results for several months. However, your results will last a long time and improve how your skin looks. You may also need several sessions at our Little Rock, AR office to get your desired results.
