Perhaps technology had something to do with it.
The growing fascination for healthcare can be explained roughly as a result of individuals becoming more and more aware of scientific studies on the ill effects of various chemical substances and unhealthy practices. Technology is largely responsible for the rapid communication and information and for increasing public awareness. And then too, the many new services afforded by new technologies in cosmetology have also created a demand for cosmetic services ranging from superficial solutions to complete restorative applications like newer thermage skin tightening treatments.
Although facial skin cosmetic services have been popular for more than 3 decades, it is only recently that skin tightening treatments including more sophisticated thermage skin tightening procedures are drawing flocks of customers even among average consumers.
Skin tightening is usually a necessity after weight loss. Since the skin is an elastic living tissue that covers the body. It is not simply a covering but is actually made of cells. As such, it stretches as we move and grow. Although cells on the outer part of our skin are constantly lost and replaced with new cells, cells underneath are more permanent. These lower layers of the skin are made up of connective tissues, fibres, blood vessels and all sorts of components that can stretch or contract depending on how you treat them. When a person loses weight the elastic parts of your skin cannot quickly adapt to his or her new shape and for people who are older, have poor nutrition, aren’t properly hydrated, have excessive sun exposure or who smoke, this problem is aggravated even more, since all of these things contribute to decreased elasticity.
There are of course, natural solutions. Since water is important in maintaining skin elasticity, is an important skin tightening or recovery measure. Eating collagen and elastin, and the protein in cheese, milk, legumes, tofu, beans, seeds, nuts and fish will also help since these foods contain oils that can help keep skin plump and elastic. And then of course avoiding chemicals in harsh detergents like sulphates in soaps, shampoos and dishwashing liquids, staying away from tanning booths, and limiting exposure to sun, hot and chlorinated water, can prevent skin elasticity from further deteriorating
And then there are special healthcare solutions like using skin tightening treatment products like creams and applications that contain potent anti-aging ingredients to combat the effects of sagging, loss of elasticity and firmness.
And then there are skin surgical procedures which often require plastic surgery and stapling to tighten loose skin. Recently, the thermage skin tightening treatment, a system relies that uses heat to tighten the underlying layers of the skin and produces instant and visible reduction in the appearance of wrinkles, jowls, and sagging skin in the neck or brow area, has grown in popularity as an effective method of skin tightening for general areas of the body. The fact that thermage skin tightening solution is painless, non-invasive, and requires no recovery time further makes it an attractive option for many consumers. Skin tightening through thermage technology is also becoming more and more affordable.
