The Rise of Nonsurgical Skin Tightening Alternatives

July 25, 2016 | Blog

The Rise of Nonsurgical Skin Tightening AlternativesA youthful appearance starts with your face. Unfortunately, as you age, you may start to notice lines on your face that accrue over time. These can include lines on your forehead as well as small, curved lines on your temples, upper cheeks and around your mouth. While there may be no remedy for aging, we at AYA are proud to offer a vast array of skin tightening treatments and procedures that can help you turn back the clock and have you looking your best in no time.

Over the last few years, we’ve seen the popularity of nonsurgical skin tightening treatments grow rapidly. For many men and women, a nonsurgical approach to skin tightening is preferable due to the minimal downtime for recovery needed, the far-reduced risk of scarring and the truly excellent, natural-looking results provided. Today, there is no shortage of great, nonsurgical options for women seeking to tighten, lift and smooth their facial skin.

Here are some nonsurgical skin tightening treatments available at your Atlanta and Alpharetta AYA locations:

Sciton® SkinTyte Skin Tightening

Sciton® SkinTyte Skin Tightening is a comprehensive anti-aging treatment that targets the telltale signs of aging. Unlike other laser skin tightening treatments that can be time-consuming and intensive, SkinTyte offers fast treatment for aging skin with minimal pain and downtime.

SkinTyte treatments use radiofrequency and light energies to precisely heat the facial skin tissue within the targeted treatment area. This process stimulates collagen production and produces a firming effect in lax skin, reducing wrinkles and improving the skin’s composition and texture.

SkinTyte skin tightening is a safe and effective solution for all skin types and can be used elsewhere on the body as well. SkinTyte treatments are available at our Phipps Plaza location.

Halo by Sciton® Laser Resurfacing

The Halo hybrid fractional laser system, the newest technology available today, combines two different types of treatments in one to provide a rejuvenated appearance without the downtime required from more invasive procedures. The Halo system uses ablative lasers that work on the surface, removing the outermost layers of dead and damaged skin in combination with more powerful, non-ablative lasers that harmlessly pass through the skin’s upper layers and heat the deeper tissues, tightening the underlying skin from within.

What makes the Halo system different from other laser resurfacing technologies is that unlike previous laser skin resurfacing treatments that provided either ablative or non-ablative effects, the Halo system sends wavelengths to both the top and bottom layers of the tissue to treat visible damage on the surface as well as the invisible damage from aging and sun exposure below the skin.

The Halo system is safe for use on most skin types, tones and ages and is fully customizable depending on the patient’s specific requirements. Halo treatments are currently available at our Phipps Plaza and Avalon locations, and will soon be available at our Northside location as well.

Ultherapy® Skin Tightening

Ultherapy® Skin Tightening, available at our Avalon location in Alpharetta, uses ultrasound waves to lift, tighten and tone sagging skin. As time passes, the effects of sun damage, age and gravity slow down collagen production leaving lax skin around your neck, forehead and cheeks. Using heat, the Ultherapy® system targets the deeper layers of the skin to tighten weakened tissue and produce collagen, producing a natural-looking and revitalized appearance. There’s no surprise that Ultherapy® Skin Tightening has been dubbed by many as a step in the direction of a nonsurgical facelift.

Ultherapy® candidates are individuals dealing with sagging eyelid skin or a descended brow line, as well as patients whose neck and facial skin has become lax and less firm with time. Ultherapy® treatments are available at all Atlanta and Alpharetta AYA locations.
