There are various topical products on the market that promise to tighten and firm sagging skin, but none of these offer the real, visible changes that you’ll see with skin tightening treatments in Stevenage.
Skin tightening treatments work to lift, tone, and tighten sagging skin and are an excellent, non-invasive alternative to traditional skin tightening treatments.
Issues with sagging skin on the face and body typically result from pregnancy, weight loss, and the natural ageing process. However, other factors may also contribute, including smoking and heredity.
As we age and the body begins to produce less collagen, the soft tissues of the face and body lose their youthful elasticity, and the connective tissues and muscles begin to elongate and sag. In instances of rapid weight gain or pregnancy, these processes are accelerated. Gravity then causes the underlying fat to shift, and the skin to expand, resulting in sagging.
This process causes mild to major facial skin laxity issues, such as prominent nasolabial folds, sagging jowls, platysmal banding under the chin (turkey neck), marionette lines, and drooping eyelids.
Non-invasive skin tightening and lifting treatments in Stevenage, such as ultrasound therapy and radiofrequency treatments, work to reverse these issues.
Ultrasound therapy treatments utilise heat energy to target the dermis of the skin and induce increased collagen production. It is a continually restorative treatment, which means that results continue to improve over time and with continued treatment as the skin heals itself, with most patients experiencing visible effects between a 2-6 months period.
Radiofrequency treatments work similarly, heating the dermis of the skin to trigger the body’s natural healing process and increase collagen production. Again, this is a restorative process that takes place over six months, as it takes this amount of time for the body to produce new collagen.
Both procedures feature various benefits over traditional skin tightening surgeries, including:
- Gradual results that appear more natural
- No puncture wounds, incisions, or raw skin
- Little to no downtime
- Reduced risk of side effects
- Short procedure time (typically last no more than one hour)
- Can be used almost anywhere on the body
