Skin Tightening

Step 1 of 4

Skin Tightening

Loose, sagging skin is an embarrassing problem that can rob you of your confidence. Often, this problem is simply part of the natural aging process. Skin tightening procedures at Aesthetic Medicine in Portland provide a proven solution to this common problem that can restore your confidence and improve your appearance.

What Causes Sagging, Drooping Skin?

As you age, your body changes. Some of these changes affect your skin. Collagen, the proteins that are structural component of your skin and other connective tissue, is an important part of your skin’s health. Collagen levels naturally taper off as you age. In addition, facial fat starts to diminish. This two-fold problem can cause areas around the eyes, mouth, forehead, and jawline to sag and droop. Other areas, like the abdomen and thighs, can have sagging skin as well, even for people who are at a healthy weight.

How to Treat Loose Skin

Loose skin, especially around the face and chin or around the abdomen, is an embarrassing problem, but treatment methods are available at Aesthetic Medicine. We offer both non-invasive and minimally invasive treatments that effectively tighten the skin. These treatments stimulate the body’s natural collagen production, restoring your youthful glow and reducing the look of sagging skin.

Minimally Invasive Skin Tightening

If you have larger problem areas, our treatment team in Portland may recommend treatment with BodyTite. This innovative device reduces fat deposits while also stimulating collagen production. This two-fold approach greatly improves your skin’s tightness to give you a more toned appearance.

Non-Invasive Skin Tightening

Non-invasive skin tightening procedures focus on collagen and elastin production. By stimulating your body’s natural healing capabilities, these procedures help the body naturally tighten loose skin. Today’s technology allows our team to specifically target your most problematic areas, delivering treatment exactly where it is needed. These treatment options include:

  • Microneedling – Microneedling stimulates the body’s natural collagen production and healing processes by creating tiny pinpricks on the skin’s surface.
  • Exilis – Exilis uses radiofrequency and ultrasound to encourage collagen growth and reduce unwanted fat deposits to tighten and tone problem areas on the face and body.

Both of these are non-surgical techniques. They deliver excellent results without downtime or discomfort.
