As we age, our skin becomes lax due to the loss of collagen and elastin. While we can’t stop this from happening (not yet, anyway!), what our Issaquah, WA, cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Suseela Narra and the team at Narra Dermatology and Aesthetics can do is provide non-surgical and non-invasive skin tightening treatment options that can rejuvenate your appearance and say goodbye to loose, creping skin.
Dermal fillers have become a popular way for our patients to achieve firmer, tighter and more youthful skin by filling out and plumping up areas of the face with hyaluronic acid, a substance that’s already naturally occurring in the skin and helps to maintain volume in the face. As we age we lose volume, and dermal fillers can help to improve the structure and definition of the face. It’s important to note that results with dermal fillers are temporary, lasting anywhere from 6-18 months. You can continue to get subsequent treatments to refresh your results, and many people enjoy the fact that they can simply stop getting treatments if they don’t want to maintain results any longer. It’s a low-risk, low-commitment treatment and a great option for someone new to cosmetic dermatology.
Cosmetic technology has certainly come a long way. Here at Narra Dermatology we can offer a wide range of non-invasive cosmetic treatment options that can be customized to your esthetic needs. Everything from fine lines and wrinkles to sagging skin and hyperpigmentation can be improved with laser skin tightening treatments. Lasers can also trigger collagen production, which helps promote tighter, firmer skin. Laser treatments require little to no downtime and can provide results after just one session.
Another popular option among our patients is Ultherapy, which uses ultrasound technology to heat up and tighten deeper tissue under the skin to lift and tighten. It’s important to note that when it comes to stimulating collagen production, it does take time. You may not see results for a couple of months after treatment. Ultherapy and the other non-invasive skin tightening options we offer are designed to provide you with natural results.
