“Zoom Face” is the term given to seeing our aging faces in the era of video calls.
It’s become something of a familiar and not altogether pleasant experience for many people forced to swap team meetings for Zoom calls during the pandemic.
So if you are concerned about an aged appearance, know you aren’t alone. And know that, thankfully, there are lots of fantastic skin tightening treatments on the market that are straightforward, low risk, and offer great results.
However, before you book that cosmetic makeover, read through our list of five things to check when reviewing different skin treatments.
1. Side Effects
Innovations in skincare in recent years mean there are plenty of lower-risk skin treatment options to tighten sagging skin compared to the past.
Nevertheless, it’s essential to understand the risks and side effects before any cosmetic beauty treatment. Even when the risk is small, it is still something to weigh against the benefits of that treatment before you decide.
Start by reading an independent medical website for common treatment side effects. And take time during the pre-treatment consultation to ask the beautician or practitioner for their advice on common side effects.
2. Treatment Frequency
Different skin tightening treatments vary in how long they’ll help you look young. You’ll want to know when to book a follow-up treatment if you want the results to last.
Plasma therapy, for example, is a permanent treatment that will only require minor touch-ups if you want. A thread lift will last for around 12-18 months.
Ultherapy, by contrast, lasts for around two years. You can read more on ultherapy here.
With costs, you need to consider whether the anti-aging treatments will need touch-ups or repeating in the future.
A permanent treatment might seem more costly, but it won’t require a longer-term investment in facial tightening treatment.
Some clinics will offer payment plans, so it’s worth finding out if you can pay them over installments when comparing costs for different treatments.
Are you prepared for a lengthy recovery period? Or perhaps you want an urgent skin tightening treatment in time for a big event and want to avoid a long recovery.
You must compare recovery times for different skin tightening treatments. A thread lift might take a few weeks of recovery, whereas ultherapy and botox are minimal, a few days at the most.
More permanent treatments like a surgical facelift have a more extended and complex recovery period.
5. Customer Reviews
Getting treatment from a trusted clinic is the best way to minimize skin tightening treatment risks and get the quality of results you want.
If you can, talk to past customers. If that isn’t an option, take the time to read through any online reviews for your chosen clinic.
In addition, browse through before and after photos from clinics to set expectations. You want to ensure that the skin tightening treatment you’ve chosen will give you the transformation you desire.
