Worried about wrinkles? Lines driving you loopy? A skin tightening treatment will stimulate the production of collagen to help improve your skin’s texture and give the face a younger, more toned appearance. Not only can this procedure help you to turn back time – it is also non-surgical, meaning that there’s no need to run a mile if you’re afraid of going under the knife. Phew.
Skin tightening treatments make use of radio frequency to stimulate the body into producing more collagen. This new collagen smoothes and tightens the skin, helping you to turn back the clock and gain a more youthful appearance. Wrinkles? What wrinkles?
Good news if you tend to be a bit impatient - the treatment will begin to tighten existing collagen immediately, so you can expect results right away. These results will continue to improve for the next six months, and can last for years, depending on the way in which your skin ages.
Skin tightening can be used to deal with problems such as crow’s feet, marionette lines and double chins. However, this procedure is not just restricted to the face – it can also be used to firm and tighten the décolletage and upper arms for a toned and rejuvenated effect.
Skin tightening is suitable for most people, but as with all cosmetic procedures it’s a good idea to discuss the treatment with your practitioner first if you are pregnant or suffer from a medical condition – after all, it’s always good to be on the safe side.
Skin tightening is a treatment in its own right, but can also be used to enhance the effects of anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers.
