What is the difference between skin tightening and a facelift?
A facelift is when excess skin is surgically removed and followed by the stretching of the remaining skin.
Skin tightening is when the actual skin is treated with a device to create collagen so that the skin becomes stronger and tighter.
What is the difference between skin tightening and dermal filling?
Dermal filling is placed in the facial fat layers in order to fill facial depressions. As the fat is inflated there can be a gentle lifting of the skin. This might create an illusion of skin tightening but in fact there is little change in the actual strength of the skin-it is only stretched. A device mediated skin tightening effects the dermal collagen composition resulting in a tighter skin feel and appearance.
