Who are the best candidates for skin tightening?

From a marketing stand point, I would say that women 40 and older would be the best candidates for skin tightening treatments but that’s just one man’s opinion. I’ve read that men and women between the ages of 30 and 60 in good health are ideal, although 30 seems a little young to me. I think that men are just not that skin conscious, although you have the occasional one that wants to keep a youthful appearance.

Financially, one thing to consider is price. Laser skin tightening is cheaper than traditional cosmetic surgery so those on a budget may be more inclined to choose this type of procedure. Also, those who may be afraid of having traditional surgery and going under the scapel might prefer this method of taking years off their looks.

Medically speaking, those with more collagen in the treatment area will see the most improvement. The amount of fibroblasts is also essential for producing collagen after each treatment I’ve read. People with connective tissue disease should consult their doctor and may not be the best candidates for skin tightening according to the source I found.

Pregnant women should not do the treatment according to docshop.com and basically those whose only skin problem is wrinkles make good candidates.

In summary, those of us in early to late middle age and in good health who may be on a budget and looking for a safer alternative to surgery make the best candidates for laser skin tightening treatments.
