New Jersey Residents Ask: What’s the Difference Between Skin Rejuvenation and Skin Tightening?
As we age, the skin does not hesitate to show signs of distress. From acne scars to sun damage, enlarged pores to wrinkles, there is a seemingly endless list of the skin concerns that can plague us, as a result of lifestyle choices and genetics. The good news is that skin rejuvenation and skin tightening exist to help address some of these concerns and set our skin on a healthier, more vibrant path. But, what’s the difference between these two approaches? And which one is right for you? Allow us to explain:
What is Skin Rejuvenation?
A face that has developed hyperpigmentation, scarring, uneven skin tone, blemishes and more is likely carrying around damaged layers of skin that are preventing your beautiful, clear complexion from becoming evident. If this sounds familiar to you, then you could be a good candidate for skin rejuvenation.
At Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists of New York and New Jersey, we use laser skin resurfacing and fillers for our skin rejuvenation treatments. Laser skin resurfacing uses innovative technology to even out skin tone and create a smoother and more balanced appearance. While this approach is an excellent choice for some, others may prefer fillers. Fillers and injectables add volume and lift to the skin, diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Others still may benefit from a combination of the two. The details of your treatment plan will vary depending on your needs. However, both of these methods are highly effective and produce consistently satisfying skin rejuvenation results.
What is Skin Tightening?
Unlike skin rejuvenation, skin tightening actually works to tighten up the skin so that it is firmer and appears more youthful. At Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists of New York and New Jersey, we use the Ultherapy™ treatment for our patients’ skin tightening needs. Ultherapy™ uses ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen production that, over time, contributes to firmer more toned and tightened skin.
Damaged and sagging skin are two different concerns that, fortunately, have simple, effective and convenient treatments. At Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists of New York and New Jersey, our team is skilled in assisting patients with their skin rejuvenation and skin tightening needs. So if you have questions about which treatments will work best for you, simply contact us to schedule a consultation.
