Non-Surgical Skin Tightening

Skin tighening at Coastal Dermatology in Mystic, CT

Over time, the amount and tightness of the collagen fibers in our skin decreases. Our skin becomes more lax, or loose. As sad as it is, and sounds, this looser skin then drapes over the body and bones ina  different way (due to gravity) than when you were younger, causing sagging. Two options for treating this issue are either surgically, or non-surgically. Surgery will give a better outcome, but some patients either do not want to undergo the risks of surgery, or are not a surgical candidate. Non-surgical tissue tightening therefore provides a no-downtime option for tighten up sagging skin. 

Juvashape can be used to tighten skin in the following areas:

  • face and neck, jowls
  • abdomen
  • thighs front and back
  • arms
