Nobody wants to have sagging skin, but it seems inevitable as time passes. Luckily, however, there are a number of skin tightening procedures available that you may want to try if you are worried about your own skin. Each of these methods have their own pros and cons, and it is likely that you will try each of them at least at some point. Very specifically put, the three options are natural skin care products with anti-aging properties, laser treatments and surgery. It is important to understand that none of these methods is perfect and that each of these methods can be downright dangerous if not done properly. Let’s take a closer look at each method in particular.
Surgical Skin Tightening Procedures
When looking for surgical skin tightening Orange County seek professional advice. It is a type of plastic surgery and while it has been shown to be safe, the reality is that you are going under the knife, which brings particular risks with it. Hence the reason to choose only the best professionals. Surgery works by tightening the skin when you are under general anesthetic, quite literally pulling it away and upwards. Once that has been done, excess skin is removed, usually around the hairline, so that you do not end up with a scar.
Laser Treatment Procedures
With laser treatment, the collagen under the skin is stimulated so that more is produced. This, in turn, helps to increase firmness and tightness in the skin itself, thereby reducing wrinkles. One of the main causes of wrinkles is a depletion in collagen production. Laser treatment is highly effective and, compared to various other types of aesthetic medicine, it is highly affordable. Plus, it is pretty much painless.
Skin Care Products
The final option is to use one of the many skin tightening creams that are out there. They are designed to stimulate the production of collagen, just like laser treatment. However, they also include ingredients that improve your overall health and well-being. On the other hand, many of these products are completely ineffective and some are actually damaging to your skin and overall health because they use chemicals and synthetic ingredients. Hence, you must check and double check what you are actually putting on your skin. Try to look for something that contains:
- Avocado oil
- Cynergy tk
- Manuka honey
Natural skin care products are gaining in popularity, because they are good for you and don’t damage the planet. However, for what you get, the products tend to be quite expensive as well. For many, it is easier to purchase something of lower quality that is cheaper, even though in reality these are actually very damaging. Remember that 60% of anything you put on your skin is actually absorbed in your body. This includes heavy metals and various other dangerous toxins. A built up of this could lead to free radical damage and, therefore, make an aged appearance even worse.
