With age, the volume of the fat in our face decreases. Ergo, the skin hangs down loosely; sagging and wrinkles appear. It is completely natural to worry about such a problem. We have all experienced our youth, the feeling of having fresh, young and beautiful skin. But, as nature commands, it is not plausible for to have the same tight skin throughout our lifetime. Some questions might come in our minds during this due course of time. Is it possible to tighten my skin and make it the way it used to be? Can I still look that young and beautiful? Is it possible without undergoing a surgery?
Yes, we say. There are modern techniques such as skin tightening which have come to the rescue. You don’t need to go for plastic surgery or go through its side effects. You can still look years younger without the extreme make over. With skin tightening, light energy is used to heat the facial tissues causing contraction of the deeper tissue layers of the skin. The primary goal is to cause contraction to decrease some of the laxity of looseness of the skin. A variety of types of light energy are used for this purpose, some are painful and some are not. The treatments are usually done in a series of 3 to 5 sessions a month apart, followed by continued improvement over a 6 month period of time. While not as dramatic as the results seen with a facelift for example, skin tightening can still help provide a younger look with no downtime involved.

Inversion exercises are best recommended for facial skin, as the blood flow increases tremendously by this. You can do headstands and headstands to promote rejuvenation of the skin cells. The blood flows towards the face, thus catalysing the rejuvenation of skin cells.
- Facial Massage-Use a quality moisturizer or lotion and apply to your face in a circular motion. By doing this, the skin gets tighter and the lotion is able to reach inside the skin.
