Skin Tightening & Wrinkle Treatment2021-08-13T09:57:35+01:00

Facial Skin Tightening

Firm, tone and restore youth with facial skin tightening treatments.
Let’s have a look and the causes and the cures…

Why Facial Skin Tightening?

Firstly, we start to lose collagen in our skin a lot earlier than most think. While the exact age at which collagen starts to decline in the skin varies between individuals, it is usually around 25 years old. Wrinkles and other signs of ageing appear gradually but by our mid 30’s we are usually suddenly aware that our appearance is different and we don’t look as young as we used too. Women see the decline at a faster rate, for one being due to hormonal fluctuations like menopause in which a significant amount of collagen is lost in the first 5 years. Around the age of 50 collagen production also diminishes very significantly and visible ageing accelerates.

Factors which accelerate the natural ageing process:

  • Hormones
  • Medications
  • Illness

  • Stress
  • Sun exposure
  • Life style

What does it all mean?

All these intrinsic and extrinsic factors lead to many signs of ageing. Sagging skin is primarily due to collagen and elastin diminishing and with this being the skins supportive and connective tissue the end result is inevitable. When accompanied by a loss of fat in the face and dehydration (over time) it is incredibly hard to maintain that youthful appearance we once had.

Facial Skin Tightening Treatments

Being 2021 there are now non-invasive solutions that provide a platform of regenerative results driven procedures. The most common procedures that you will come across work on either the skin or the muscle. For the best outcome and the most prolonged results window, it is both that will need attention.

We are in a fortunate position in that we have a multitude of different treatment technologies across a varying array of different platforms. Facial skin tightening and lifting is an area where we can incorporate these differing applications in a very bespoke way.

Here are some of the treatments that can be applied, with an understanding of their purpose.

Radio Frequency (Tripolar/ Tri Wave)

Machine used: Lipofirm Pro

Best for: Skin Tightening and Collagen Remodelling

This process consists of deep volumetric heating through tissue resistance in both the dermal and subcutaneous layers. Selective and focused electro-heating of the skin stimulates collagen remodelling in the dermal layer and increases fat metabolism in the subcutaneous fat layer. The term ‘Tripolar’ refers to the evolution of radio frequency technology being used, originally it was Monopolar and then until a couple years ago it was Bipolar and now we have Tripolar (Quad is due around 2023/24).

DMA (Dynamic Muscle Activation)

Machine used: Lipofirm Pro

Best for: Lifting, Toning and Firming of Muscles

DMA works in sync with the Tripolar RF creating a process called TriLipo (patented by Pollagen). Once the thermal effect of RF has taken the DMA works by applying internal and external pressure to the contractile proteins within the muscle tissue, causing the fibres to contract. This contraction elevates the muscle and generates lifting and toning to a much greater depth than a more traditional beauty treatment like CACI for example. Lipofirm Pro is the first Aesthetic treatment device that works on the skin and the muscle at the same time and in perfect sync for maximum effect and results.

Electro Ion

Machine used: 3D-HydrO2 Facial

Best for: Jowl and Eyebrow lifting

This treatment uses electroporation to increase the absorbency of the cell for production penetration. This in turn, revitalises and ‘wakes up’ dull and lifeless skin.

Radio Wave Therapy

Machine used: IS0 360+

Best for: Restoring Elasticity

Radio wave therapy works by generating an electric field for entering into the subcutaneous tissue through the skin surface. At a frequency of 450kHz the electric field can change its polarity to 450,000 times per second causing a rapid change to the cells in the dermal layer of the skin. The result of this radio wave energy means the renewal of elastin through controlled trauma. The process works in a relatively similar way to RF, though the applicator head is a very specific shape to suit a varied range of facial contours therefore giving quicker results due to a more focused coverage. This treatment is particularly good for the more delicate areas which are usually hard to reach.

Summary

You will not really find any treatments in the Non-invasive side of Aesthetics that are permanent, Thermavein and Cryotherapy aside.  These procedures mentioned above will not give you life long results but they are currently the best of what current technology has to offer and go the furthest to providing lasting results.  When the next evolution of treatment technology is available then we will be offering that.
