Because of the body's natural decline of collagen production, your skin can begin to lose its tautness resulting in fine lines and wrinkles over time. These changes happen so gradually that you may not even notice their onset, but with the help of a variety of skin tightening procedures by your Issaquah, WA, dermatologist you may be surprised by the difference they can make. You can learn more about the types of procedures offered by reaching out to Dr. Suseela Narra of Narra Dermatology and Aesthetics.
The different procedures that your dermatologist can turn to in order to combat these skin imperfections are typically non-surgical and can produce results in a short amount of time. They can tighten the skin minimizing the appearance of wrinkles and providing a more youthful look. Aesthetics are sometimes dismissed as secondary to medical benefits, but improving your appearance and the way you feel about yourself can have a great positive impact on your life overall.
How the Results Are Achieved
Two of the most common skin tightening procedures work by stimulating the production of collagen on your skin, either through sound waves or laser. Laser skin tightening treatments offer faster results but ultrasound-based therapy can be a less invasive option, both use heat to promote the body's own healing ability. Schedule a visit to discuss your expectations so your doctor can suggest the best possible treatment for your individual needs.
Dermal fillers are yet another option for skin tightening, results can last about a year and the treatment is minimally invasive. It involves the injection of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body, to temporarily firm up affected areas.
