Radio-frequency skin tightening provided by Bloom Aesthetics Med Spa has been around for many years but it was not until recently that this technology was made available to the public. Radio-frequency skin tightening generates tiny electrical currents to target and tighten sagging skin on the hands, face, neck, buttocks, abdomen, thighs, and back. The amount of current used to achieve the results is directly related to the depth of the wrinkles and the type of skin. It is safe and effective and there are no known side effects. It can be used by both men and women and you won’t need a prescription to get it done either.
Dr. Doshi of Tokyo Bioelectrical Corporation explains how these treatments work. “A natural enzyme called superoxide dismutase (SOD) is generated in the human body which is responsible for neutralizing free radicals which can cause damage to cellular DNA and cell function. In response to stress or injury, the enzyme superoxide dismutase (SOD) produces hydrogen peroxide which prevents further damage. Radiofrequency skin tightening treatments are based on the same process but utilize radio waves to produce the necessary electrical currents.” Dr. Doshi goes on to say, “We have seen significant improvements in skin tightening when we apply the treatments, including the reduction of wrinkles, fine lines, an increase of firmness and elasticity, and reduction of swelling.”
A Japanese product called Doshi Coating Formula is the main ingredient in the famous Doshi System which targets and tightens facial skin. Dr. Doshi claims that with continued use, your face will become firmer and healthier looking. Other benefits of this treatment include; softer wrinkles, smoother skin, decrease in brown spots and blemishes, reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, prevention of skin aging, and moisturizing effect. This unique formulation is also used in conjunction with Argireline and brown algae extract.
Another technique of skin tightening involves using Botox injections. Your physician will determine the amount needed based on your medical history and your symptoms. There are many brands of Botox today such as Clearpores and Suction Tubes. The most popular injection method is the use of a continuous flow unit where a solution is continuously injected into the affected area. It is very effective in making you look younger without losing your personality. Continuous flow Botox treatments require multiple shots, which is why most patients only consider it as an option when all other options fail to work.
Surgical Skin Tightening: Some people have undergone surgical skin tightening techniques which are more permanent and expensive than the rest. In these cases, the skin is tightened by the use of scissors, lasers, and scalpels. Before these surgical procedures, a patient must first consult a dermatologist who will help decide the best solution to achieve a youthful appearance. After the surgery, there are still some results that may be visible even months after the surgery although it is not noticeable enough to be noticed alone. As such, patients need to continue with their regular medical checkups for safety concerns. You should also take note that these types of procedures should only be performed by experienced plastic surgeons or dermatologists to prevent unnecessary complications.
Laser Skin Tightening: This is one of the best solutions to fight the signs of aging but can be quite expensive. A laser skin tightening treatment can effectively reduce wrinkles and fine lines, especially when paired with collagen induction treatments. This procedure involves the use of a laser to stimulate the production of collagen in your body. Results can be seen in about six months’ time after the initial treatment, which is a great deal faster than any other surgical procedure used for skin tightening.
