Age can take a toll on the skin. With time fine lines, wrinkles and pigmentation start to appear. The skin begins to lose its elasticity and starts to sag.

Age is just one of the factors that can cause the facial skin to lose its laxity, other reasons are pregnancy and weight loss. Sagging skin around the facial area is not very aesthetically pleasing. It can also make many people conscious. Skin Tightening Toronto is the best way to deal with it. This cosmetic procedure can help to restore and tighten the sagging skin. Following are some of the skin tightening treatments you can look at.

Laser Skin Tightening Treatment

If you are looking for a minimally invasive procedure that will help produce anti-ageing results like reducing the appearance of fine lines and tightening the sagging skin. You should consider laser treatment. In this treatment, the technician uses a guiding laser beam in the areas where tightening needs to be carried out. The infrared light produced by the laser beams encourages the production of collagen, which cause the skin to tighten. It takes about 1 to 4 treatment sittings to get healthier, smoother and tighter skin. The results from the procedure are subtle and aren’t as dramatic as plastic surgery. The downtime after the procedure is shorter than that of a cosmetic procedure.


This is another non-invasive skin tightening procedure that is highly unique. What makes ultherapy stands out is the fact that it uses ultrasound waves which targets the sagging skin and help to make the skin more firm. The pattern and wavelength of the ultrasound waves are delivered has to be precise and controlled. This is what makes the procedure safe and has low levels of complications or risks associated. During the treatment, the waves are delivered to the deepest layers of the skin that are usually accessed only during a surgical procedure. Through this skin tightening therapy, the tissues which underlie the skin are tightened through the treatment which also promotes the growth of collagen. After ultherapy, you might experience some tightness. Three months after the surgery, you will be able to notice the results.


Microneedling is another great option you should consider when you want mild skin-tightening results. The treatment works to stimulate the production of collagen, which causes the skin to tighten. Microneedling can also help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Radiofrequency Treatments

In this treatment, the desired area is heated, which encourages the production of collagen. The Radiofrequency treatment focuses on epidermal layers, which are different from the layers targeted in Ultherapy. You can carry out this procedure on your face, neck, hands and body. It is an in-office treatment that is carried out quickly with little discomfort. Another great thing about this procedure is that it requires no downtime and is suitable and safe for all skin types. When you use radiofrequency combined with IPL laser it can target deep layers of the skin, which can help achieve highly effective results.

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

No one prepares you for the honeymoon phase wearing off

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

Let's start off with the simple fact that God made everyone differently. That statement could not be more evident. We try to embrace our differences and set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. What that doesn't prepare us for is when we yearn for a characteristic of someone else. For example, have you ever met someone who can experience this great heart ache and hardly shed a tear? This person just had their heart ripped out and they find a way to carry themselves through it with great composure. Well, not all of us have that desirable trait. Some of us wear our hearts on our wet sleeves. When a person has their heart on their sleeve, it can be viewed as a good thing, that the individual isn't shallow. However,

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."
