The options to firm sagging skin seem endless. Magic creams, at-home devices, and viral TikTok “facial workout” videos are aplenty. While many of these options are simply all hype, you might be left wondering… What actually helps to effectively tighten skin and improve contours of the face and body? It can be challenging to know which treatment is right for you. The Med Spot is here to help you navigate and select a treatment to get you the best possible results.
Let’s first talk about the basics. Skin appears plump and firm with the help of two proteins: collagen and elastin. Aging, genetics, changes in body composition, and pregnancy are just some of the factors that result in skin laxity or sagging skin. As skin becomes thinner, it is more likely to reveal dimpling and irregularities. Production of collagen and elastin starts to decline beginning at 20 years of age. This means the face, neck, and body are all areas which can benefit from surgical and non-surgical skin tightening and fat reduction. To correct loss of collagen and elastin, the following In-office treatments with FDA approved medical devices are favorites for their proven results.
Smooth and Stimulate
Try a Morpheus8 Face and Body treatment series. To remodel collagen of the face and body Morpheus8 targets different layers of the skin and body’s tissues. A type of energy called radio-frequency is combined with microneedles to target the part of your skin and tissue where collagen and fat reside. The innovative Morpheus8 treatments are customized by your healthcare provider based on your skin type and area of treatment. In the weeks following a Morpheus 8 treatment, texture of smile lines become softer and jowls appear tightened. The Morpheus8 body is a Med Spot favorite for post-pregnancy mom’s seeking to reduce stretch marks and address fat in areas like the abdomen and love handles.
Firm and Sculpt
FaceTite and BodyTite minimally invasive surgical contouring. To remove fat without causing sagging skin, Dr. Michelle Reyes relies upon the Bodytite and FaceTite for its delivery of unparalleled results. This procedure uses precisional radiofrequency technology to melt and remove fat while simultaneously remodeling tissue. The Facetite and Bodytite procedures do not have large scars or downtime associated with extensive old-school surgical procedures. For many individuals the neck area starts to show age before the face. The FaceTite is an excellent way to tighten loose skin and restore a youthful jawline.
Fresh and Luminous.
CO2RE resurfacing to transform your skin naturally. Laser treatments with the CO2RE create precise microscopic injury to the skin, prompting your body’s own healing process. As a result your body will produce new collagen and healthy new skin cells. CO2RE treatments enhance skin tone and can even help improve the appearance of baggy skin near the eyes. Stimulating collagen and elastin production boosts your skin’s “snap factor” and uniformity. The same type of CO2RE laser used for resurfacing skin on the face or arms can also be used for vaginal rejuvenation with the CO2RE Intima. Jump-starting synthesis of skin cells and the skin’s matrix can strengthen dermal density and tighten tissues.
Subtle and Refined
Start small with Sublime skin boosting. If you’ve never experienced an in-office treatment or want to tip-toe into the world of lasers, the Sublime treatment is the most gentle approach. The Sublime uses low levels of infrared light and radio frequency to stimulate collagen fibers. A series of treatments reduces fine wrinkles, is completely non-invasive, and improves contours of the face. Tightening of the face and neck takes place gradually in the deep dermal layer.
