What is skin tightening?
Skin tightening refers to a variety of devices, products, and procedures that make the skin tighter, by actually causing some degree of shrinkage and lift, or through creating the appearance of tighter, more youthful-looking skin. However, the term “skin tightening” can be confusing. “Many skin care products, medical devices, and surgical procedures advertise how effective they are in tightening skin, but results can vary dramatically,” says Alexis Parcells, MD, board-certified plastic surgeon and clinical instructor at RWJ Barnabas Health.
Why does skin get loose in the first place?
In a word: Aging. Some sagging and loosening of the skin is a normal part of the aging process, Dr. Parcells says. There are many factors that play a role in the look and feel of your skin as you age. Time, gravity, genetics, exposure to smoke and air pollutants, diet, and radiation from the sun all contribute to your body’s ability to restore or replace damaged skin cells. Additionally, as you age, your body’s supply of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid—the essential building blocks of skin—diminishes. At the same time, your ligaments, which provide the support structure that keeps these building blocks in place, start to weaken, resulting in thinner, saggy looking skin.
“It’s important to understand the aging process and how different our bodies are because this influences what will be effective for you and why your results may differ from someone else’s,” she explains.
