What is Skin Tightening?

As we age we lose volume in our face, primarily fat. As a result skin can hang down as gravity acts on it creating droopiness, wrinkles and bands. This can be thought of as excess skin and is similar in concept to a dress that becomes too large as its owner loses weight. In cases where you have a signficant amount of this loose skin, you may find no other solution than plastic surgery (e.g. facelift, body lift, arm lift, etc.) because the underlying muscles need to be addressed and repositioned.
Typically during a facelift the neck is sculpted by removing both the fat on top and underneath the muscle fibers that extend from the collarbone to the jaw (platysma). This muscle is tightened in the front of the neck and underneath the jaw-line to improve the jowl line. To lift the jowls, the facial superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS) is also tightened.

Nonsurgical skin tightening
Prior to deciding on surgery, people tend to ask medical experts for alternatives. Tips on how to tighten skin without undergoing surgery include:
1) Dermal fillers like Juvederm, or Radiesse can soften the shadowing that occurs around your nasolabial fold and facial creases, thus making the jowls and cheek folds appear less prominent. Fillers act like inflating a beach ball to address the pockets and bulges. For example, by using a filler to restore volume to the cheeks, you can lessen the appearance of the jowls to some extent.
2) There are a number of skin tightening devices or machines used in medical offices that may tighten skin such as Refirme, TITAN, or Thermage. Titan uses infrared light (IR) to tighten the skin, Thermage uses unipolar radiofrequency energy (RF), and Refirme uses IR and bipolar RF.
3) A doctor may suggest you rejuvenate skin with laser skin resurfacing. The erbium laser with Profractional technology or the CO2 laser with Fraxel are additional options.

Frequently Asked Question

What is NIR Skin Tightening?

NIR stands for Near Infra-Red. This is the type of light emitted during your skin tightening treatment. The treatment uses a safe infrared light that heats the skin and the tissue immediately under the skin’s surface. The heat produced during the treatment stimulates the infiltration of fibroblast and the formation of new collagen, while also tightening the existingbundles of collagen and elastin in the skin. This “double” stimulation both thickens and tightens the skin, strengthening the natural “scaffold” that gives our skin structure. This not only improves the skins appearance now, but also helps to bolster the skin against future aging. The presence of healthy collagen in the dermis helps maintain the skin’s youthful resilience and texture.

Am I a good candidate for NIR skin tightening?

The best candidate for NIR skin tightening is anyone that has loose, sagging skin of a mild to moderate degree and wants to tighten and re-contour the area. Can be used to treat: • Areas on the face (such as joweling), chin, neck, and body. • Laxity of abdominal skin post-pregnancy or post surgery. • Laxity of buttocks and knees. • Improving surface skin quality (“crepeyness”) of décolleté, arms, and thighs.

What can I expect?

The NIR treatment emits light in near infrared spectrum to provide topical heating for the purpose of elevating tissue temperature. There is no preparation other than arriving with clean skin, and during the treatment your skin temperature will be elevated to a clinically proven “set point” and then maintained at that level for a short period of time for best effect. Treatment is very comfortable, as the combination of an integrated chilled tip and an innovative “in-motion” treatment pattern allows for virtually pain-free, rapid treatments. Patients will typically require a series of 5-6 treatments scheduled 2-3 weeks apart. Most patients experience no downtime and immediately resume their daily routine.
