Grab yourself a sandwich, get yourself comfortable – it’s time to delve into the world of skin tightening.
Hello, it’s Helen and today I wanted to talk to you about skin tightening.
Have you found yourself looking in the mirror lately, and things just don’t seem as plump, tight or youthful as they used to be? It’s not necessarily that you have ‘wrinkles’ (although they certainly might be present), but somehow your face just isn’t as toned and tight as it once was.
You’ve worked your way through the expensive face creams, and serums, and have maybe even tried some ‘at home’ devices.
But somehow, you just don’t seem to get the results that you’re after, and you’re starting to feel a little ‘fed up with things’.
And – it’s not just about your face is it.. You may also be experiencing this on your body, from a flabby stomach to those pesky bingo wings! You understand that this is all a part of ageing, but if there was something that you could do about it, you’d be first in line to do it.
If any of this sounds familiar, then let me introduce you to your perfect solution:- welcome to the world of skin tightening.
Before we get down to the treatments, let’s talk about what exactly is skin tightening and who is the ideal candidate for it?
Skin tightening is something that is suitable really, for anyone over the age of 30 who is starting to experience what I’d call the very first signs of ageing. It can be used as a preventative treatment, to stop your skin from slackening and it can also be used to tighten skin where it’s already happened. Skin tightening on the body is less ‘age related’ and more to do with weight loss so this can be used by anybody.
Treatments that do the job when it comes to skin tightening:
Skin tightening solutions for the face..
Radiofrequency: Your skin will thank you when you treat yourself to radiofrequency. Here at the clinic we offer RF that can be used to target many areas, including the jowls, cheeks, and neck area. RF or ‘skin rejuvenation’ offers a tightening and lifting effect for those who don’t want to undergo surgery and can be used on both the face and body.
Profhilo: Fast becoming a celebrity favourite, Profhilo involves the injection of Hyaluronic Acid into the face, so that not only will you experience an immediate tightening effect it will also boost your own collagen production.
Profhilo gives an ‘inner glow’ effect that really is outstanding.
PDO Threads: Ideal for anyone above the age of 30, PDO threads target everything from crow’s feet to nasolabial and marionette lines (which run from the nose and mouth and contribute to a frown-like appearance), PDO thread-lifts are also beneficial for treating jowls and a sagging neck, as they help kill off fat cells.
Plasma Blast: The one with the longest downtime, Plasma is extremely impressive and effective as a skin tightening treatment, literally blasting away excess skin cells (by dehydrating them), this treatment can be used on both the upper and lower eyelids, as well as the neck and forehead area.
Skin tightening solutions for the Body:
Sagging skin indy.isn’t just a treatment just for your face, it can also works wonders on your body.
3D Lipo: The 3D Lipo machine not only destroys unwanted areas of fat, it can also be used to tighten loose and sagging skin, for example, that occurs after weight loss treatment. Using HiFU (high intensity focused ultrasound) and RF (radiofrequency) skin can be toned and tightened quickly and can treat areas such as the stomach, bingo wings, thighs, and face.
You can also use treatments that we covered for the face, on the body: Plasma Blast can work wonders when used on the body to tighten to loose skin and PDO Threads can give a lift to areas such as your neck and breasts. Profhilo can be used for skin tightening on the hands, and RF can be used in multiple areas.
How soon will you see results + how often should you do it?
Skin tightening treatments are fantastic because you can usually see results fairly quickly. In fact all of the treatments that I have covered, will have you looking in the mirror saying ‘wow’ at the end of your very first session.
How many sessions you will need, depends upon your individual concerns and needs, and the best way to discover this is to book a free consultation so that we can discuss your TaylorMade treatment plan.
One thing that I will say, is that regardless of the amazing outcome that you get with one of the above treatments, day by day we arecontinually ageing. This means that in time, ageing will again become obvious, and a top up treatment may be advisable.
My TaylorMade recommendation:
I recommend that you get skin tightening treatments done as and when you need them. An initial course as advised above may be recommended after a consultation but if you are at all concerned about skin ageing and feel that skin tightening may be the answer for you, I recommendtreating your area of concern, little and often.
When done professionally, skin tightening treatments can be extremely impressively effective.
Until the next time,
