Patients often complain of looking "old" and "jowly", largely because they have lost significant volume in and around the cheeks and jowls, causing them to "sink and sag". Sagging skin is one of the most significant contributors to facial ageing. When the lower parts of the face start dropping, defy gravity, by having a skin tightening treatment with ND:Yag Skin Tightening, which heats up the collagen in the deep dermis and causes a tightening and lifting effect, enough to make a difference and restore the youthful contours to the face.
If one can keep one's skin firm and taught with collagen, then the sagging that takes place over time can be contained, as tighter skin supports the face. The new concept today, is to start with tightening rejuvenation treatments early, so as to avoid or postpone surgical solutions for as long as possible.
Maintaining a young face isn't a sprint - it's a marathon. Rather than waiting until the problems are bothersome again, patients must appreciate that maintenance goes a long way and treatments should be repeated for maintenance about 4 times a year after the initial result has been achieved.
The protocol methods for performing tissue tightening treatments have changed since the release of these devices and the results are very dependent on the number of treatments done.
