Second perhaps only to immortality, the pursuit of ageless has taken not just mythological character but practical ones.

Take for example how the art and science of dermatology and skin care continue to become relevant even changing historical and cultural definitions of beauty. Or perhaps, it is the growing public consciousness for well-being and beauty facilitated by increasing availability of scientific health data and increasing sophistication of treatments and technologies that can even curb natural bodily processes.  Treatments like laser liposuction or thermage skin tightening treatments that can give fast restorative effects within the little pain and side-effects have become the Everyman’s go-to-solution for beauty problems.

The skin is an elastic living tissue that covers the body and is made up of cells that stretches as we move and grow. Although cells on the outer part of our skin are constantly lost and replaced with new cells, cells underneath are more permanent. These lower layers of the skin are made up of connective tissues, fibres, blood vessels and all sorts of components that can stretch or contract depending on how you treat them. As such, the need for skin tightening usually occurs after weight loss when due to radical change in bodily form, the skin cannot adapt to the new body size.  The case is even or problematic among people old age, poor nutrition and hydration, excessive sun exposure or smoke smoking since contribute to decreased elasticity of the skin and therefore creates more skin tightening problems.

Natural solutions like hydrating, eating collagen and elastin, and the protein in cheese, milk, legumes, tofu, beans, seeds, nuts and fish will also help since these foods contain oils that can help keep skin plump and elastic and avoiding chemicals in harsh detergents like sulfates in soaps, shampoos and dishwashing liquids, staying away from tanning booths, and limiting exposure to sun, hot and chlorinated water, can help rejuvenate skin or prevent it from further deteriorating.  Skin tightening treatment products like creams and applications that contain potent anti-aging ingredients can help against sagging, loss of elasticity and firmness but do not generally improve skin health.

With the advent of technological innovations, thermage skin tightening treatment is slowly being recognized as a legitimate, safe and effective skin tightening clinical procedure. Thermage skin tightening treatment a system uses heat to tighten the underlying layers of the skin and produces instant and visible reduction of wrinkles, jowls, and sagging skin in the neck or brow area. Although surgical face lifts still offer more dramatic, permanent results, thermage skin tightening is painless, non-invasive, requires no recovery time and substantially cheaper.

Thermage skin tightening, however, is not necessarily for everyone. Ideal candidates for thermage treatments include those who are candidates for or who have already undergone surgical face lifts, middle-aged women showing signs of skin sagging or drooping jowl or cheek folds. Individuals who have very loose skin, heavy faces, deep jowls and wrinkles, and other more advanced signs of aging in the face may not experience significant improvement after receiving thermage skin tightening treatment.
