Is There a Difference Between Skin Tightening and Skin Lifting?

Everyone wants to look their best. However, there can be a little confusion about the different ways you can improve your appearance. If you want tighter, firmer skin then you may have been trying to decide between skin tightening and skin lifting. 

Fortunately, you do not have to figure out the difference. We can help, whether you are looking for 

  • Skin tightening
  • Skin toning
  • Skin lifting

When you want firmer looking skin, you can go through a skin tightening or skin toning procedure. Whether skin is tightened with a surgery like a face lift or through non-surgical procedures, it looks more toned and lifted. Over time, gravity drags down your face. Time also leads to wrinkles and creases. Tightening or lifting the skin smooths it out, providing a more rested, youthful appearance. 

Technically, when we do a non-surgical procedure to improve the appearance of your skin, we are doing skin tightening. Skin lifting and skin toning are not the procedures; they are the effects of the procedures. 

One popular skin treatment we offer is our cryo facelift. In this treatment we use alternating warm and cold temperatures to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles. It provides a tightening that helps tone your skin. It is one of the non-surgical methods people can use for skin-tightening. Another popular method is to use deep-tissue high-power radiofrequency treatments to tighten the skin. In addition to tightening the skin, these treatments also boost collagen production, which can plump up the skin. That plumping helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 

Another popular procedure is our cellulite removal services. This non-invasive service can help you improve the appearance of your skin. By helping remove the tiny dimples associated with cellulite, it can give your skin a tighter appearance.

Of course, there are surgical alternatives to lift your face. Face lifts can involve cutting some of the skin and stitching together the remaining pieces, literally tightening the skin. Thread lifts are less invasive, using threads to lift the face. However, they may give a more unnatural look. 

Some people think of Botox as a way to get a non-surgical facelift. While Botox can reduce the appearance of wrinkles by relaxing the underlying muscles, it does not actually tighten the skin. However, when used with other non-surgical alternatives, it can help restore your skin’s appearance.

Before choosing surgery, we urge you to come into Cryolete and try one of our non-surgical alternatives. You will walk away feeling rejuvenated, with firmer, tighter, younger-looking skin.
