What is Nonsurgical Skin Tightening?
At a younger age, we benefited from an abundant supply of collagen and elastin, which helped make our complexion smooth and supple. Over time, these essential skin nutrients start to decrease, causing the face, neck, or other areas of the body to lose firmness. When this happens, your skin may look wrinkled, crepey, or droopy. If you would like to increase your skin's tautness, nonsurgical skin tightening could help you attain your cosmetic goals. With the use of innovative FemiLift Pixel CO2 laser technology, noninvasive skin tightening improves the natural production of collagen and elastin within the skin. At Tidal Wellness in Wilmington, NC, Dr. Erin Griffin and her staff proudly provide nonsurgical skin tightening for patients who want to refresh and smooth their complexion.
