What is non surgical skin tightening?

Nonsurgical skin tightening is the use of various types of laser, radiofrequency or ultrasound machines to tighten loose or sagging skin of the face, belly, stomach, neck, chin or thighs.
How do lasers, radiofrequency and ultrasound machines tighten skin?
Skin tightening machines tighten skin by producing heat in the deeper layers of the skin which causes inflammation in the skin collagen and elastin. The inflammation causes the formation of new collagen and elastin. The new collagen and elastin are shorter and stronger, and pull the skin tighter to firm or tone the skin. These devices cool the surface of the skin so that the laser, radiofrequency or ultrasound energy passes through the skin surface without thermal injury.
Why do people have skin tightening done?
People who want tighter skin but do not want plastic surgery such as tummy tuck or liposuction, choose non surgical or non invasive skin tightening. The 2 major causes of sagging or loose skin are:
• Aging
• Significant or massive weight loss.
