Can A Skin Tightener Cream Really Tighten Skin?

woman in a beauty salonSkin creams not only work to prevent wrinkles and other signs of aging. They can also result in making skin smoother, softer and firmer. Some creams even claim to make skin tighter, but do these skin tightener creams really work?

One of the most popular skin tightening creams is the Belisi RX Instant Skin Tightener. This serum is said to mimic the effects of laser skin tightening without the cost and the complications that come with the procedure. It contains twelve natural ingredients, the main one of which is green tea extract. Green tea has proven to have several health benefits, including those for the skin, particularly acting as an antioxidant that rejuvenates skin and protects against free radical damage, as well as an anti-inflammatory agent.

Other important ingredients include pepperment oil, which also has anti-inflammatory properties, though it is more known for cleansing skin, and shea butter, which moisturizes and plumps up skin.

Aside from effective ingredients, Belisi RX also claims to use its own rapid delivery system which ensures that the ingredients are absorbed quickly and properly. This yields instant results, as attested by those who have tried the cream, saying that their skin instantly feels tighter.

The Cellex-C Skin Firming Cream Plus is also said to be a good skin tightener, as well as one that removes wrinkles and restores skin elasticity through a patented complex backed by scientific research.

There is also the M. Asam Vinolift Skin Tightening Cream and Skin Tightening Mask, both of which contain a combination of natural oils like grape seed oil, powerful antioxidants and hyaluronic acid which is excellent for moisture retention, as well as the VLCC Skin Tightening Wheat Night Cream that contains wheatgerm and carrot seed oil.

Several DMAE creams or creams containing dimethylaminoethanol are also available. DMAE, when in a topical form, is said to be the facelift in a jar since studies show that it can effectively tighten skin, reducing and correcting the sagging of skin that occurs with age.

Indeed, these creams all claim to be skin tighteners, but do they really work? If you take user feedback as a basis, then these creams do work to some extent. However, like other creams, their effects are still not at par with cosmetic procedures.

For sure and dramatic results, particularly in terms of tighter skin, having a face lift is still the best option. For those who find it too risky or expensive, though, there are currently many types of non-surgical face lifts that have the same skin tightening effect. This is especially true for the Thermage and Titan treatments which use radio waves and infrared technology, respectively to heat the inner layer of the skin while cooling the outer layer so skin ends up tighter and younger.

Skin tightening and wrinkle reduction actually go hand in hand, since tight skin will naturally be wrinkle-free, which is why most wrinkle creams can be a good choice if you are looking for a skin tightener. Just be realistic when expecting results and be patient so you don’t end up getting disappointed.
