First of all its a problem right??!!! For those of you out there that are in your teens or twenties USE SUNSCREEN. Skin tightneing devices over the last five years have exploded. Let me remind you all that past the age of 30 we lose about 1 percent of existing collagen in our skin. What a bummer but I have some favorite recommendations and explanations on exactly what skin tighteners do…..First of all they can be administered by a doctor or a licensed aesthetician. Skin tightening devices will deliver energy to tighten the skin below the skins surface. When you heat up the dermis this causes inflammation and injury therefore making existing collagen contract and new collagen to form. What I have found to be true in my years of experience is if you are past the age of 50 ( and you are playing the I want good skin catch up game) then you will need a combo of treatments and possibly a combination of types of treatment. Also, if the skin is severely saggy then surgery is your best option.
How It Feels: It does depend on what area you are treating as to how it feels . Some areas will feel like a hot stone massage and other areas will be more sensitive.
