Almost every treatment that tackles anti-aging, fine lines and wrinkles, and laxity involved tightening and firming of the skin. There are many forms of skin tightening Toronto on the market that involve different devices and are able to deliver specific results. Depending on a clients needs and goals, the treatment and procedure intensity can be minimal to no downtime, or can require a couple days of recovery. The different types of Toronto skin tightening devices on the market are Radio Frequency, Microneedling, Ultherapy, and Erbium Laser Treatments like Intraoral Tightening, Microlaser Peels, and Deep Fractionated treatments. Though these devices are more common to help with skin tightening Toronto, there are also many other devices within the Medispa industry that can deliver specific tightening results as well.

When tightening the skin, there are two ways in which results can be achieved. Through dermal skin tightening Toronto or epidermal skin tightening, clients are able to achieve smoother, tighter, and more youthful skin.

Dermal skin tightening involves heating the collagen cells within the dermis, causing just enough trauma to re-stimulate their growth and production. These types of procedures surpass the epidermis, and use specific energy to safely target the tissues within. Dermal skin tightening in Toronto does not affect the surface layers of the skin, therefore leaving them untouched. This type of skin tightening Toronto allows for very minimal to no downtime, and allows clients to resume almost all activities immediately. The collagen re-stimulation process commences immediately, however full results can take up to 2-3 months, which means the skin is still rebuilding post treatment. This type of skin tightening can usually be done all year round, and does not require extensive or specific pre and post care instructions. Thought this skin tightening can be done within the hot months, sunscreen is still required to protect the skin and the new collagen cells from UV damage.

Just as successful as dermal skin tightening, epidermal skin tightening uses energy and heat to exfoliate and eliminate the superficial layers of the epidermis, allowing dead skin cells to shed off. Underneath those layers of dead skin cells is fresh new collagen cells that promote a healthier, more even and glowing skin. This process can be achieved in many ways with different devices, and usually required more downtime. Treatments that use less heat and energy are best for clients who are looking to target minor laxity and texture imperfections on the skin. Clients who are looking to tackle deeper lines and wrinkles may require treatments that deliver more energy and heat, therefore adding more downtime. Epidermal skin tightening does deliver faster results despite the post-downtime, however not every client is the right candidate. It is best that clients consult a skin care therapist or medical professional to discuss which skin tightening Toronto method is best for their skin. As this skin tightening affects the top layers of the skin, they are best done during the colder months of year in order to avoid sun exposure and UV damage.

With any skin tightening procedure or treatment, series and treatment plans are highly recommended for best results. Clients should maintain a realistic expectation when seeking skin-tightening treatments as everyone’s skin and collagen synthesis process is different!
