Skin Tightening Without Surgery: 3 Skin Tightening Treatments Consider for Ageing, Sagging Skin.

Skin laxity can happen for several reasons; commonly we see patients who are noticing skin laxity from the ageing process, after weight loss, and after pregnancy. 

It’s important to note, that if you’re noticing sagging skin after losing weight, non-surgical treatments may be an option but bear in mind that if you have *excess* skin rather than skin that’s sagging, crepey, and/or wrinkled, you may be better off exploring surgical options as non-surgical skin tightening may not be appropriate for you. Have a look at the ‘before’ images below to get a better understanding of what non-surgical skin tightening options can improve.

I’m going to explain a little more about the types of non-surgical skin tightening treatments we offer at our skin clinic and how they may be able to help your skin. Let’s delve into the three most popular skin tightening treatments at our Hertfordshire skin tightening clinic…

 

Skin Tightening With Radio Frequency

Having offered radio frequency skin tightening since 2013, suffice to say, we love radio frequency, specifically our Thermage treatment. One of the reasons why we love Thermage is because not only can we treat and tighten the skin on your face, neck, and body… we can safely treat the skin ON your eyelids, not just around your eyes. 

Being able to treat your eyelids is a big deal because not many treatments can safely treat this area and because the eyes and eyelids are one of the first areas that we notice unwanted changes; think lids that are becoming hooded or heavy, crepiness, and makeup not sitting how it once did. 

Thermage radio frequency skin tightening works by warming the deep layers of your skin to trigger a response whereby your skin produces lots of new collagen. Why is collagen important? Collagen gives your skin its strength and structure.

Thermage radiofrequency treatment may be ideal for tightening, firming, and softening wrinkles on the eyes, face, neck, and body. This treatment is loved by us because we can safely treat the eyelids, not just close to the eyes. 

Contact us if you’d like to discuss Thermage skin tightening.

Skin Tightening With HIFU

HIFU skin tightening, similarly to radio frequency, creates heat in the treated tissues, however with HIFU skin tightening we can target different depths of your tissue depending on your particular concern; the mid dermis, deep dermis, or SMAS. Treating the mid and deep dermis will stimulate collagen to help smooth and firm your skin, whereas treating the SMAS (the collagen-dense mesh that covers muscle) will have a lifting effect on the tissue.

HIFU skin tightening may be ideal for those who want skin tightening and lifting, as well as help softens wrinkles on the face, neck, and body.

Contact us if you’d like to discuss HIFU skin tightening.

Skin Tightening With Thread Lift

The Thread Lift treatment is different to both radio frequency and HIFU because it is not reliant on your body making its new collagen or elastin. The way the Thread Lift works is a medical practitioner will place medical-grade threads into your skin and a technique is used to tighten these threads which in turn tightens and LIFTS your skin. 

The Thread Lift may be ideal for those who want skin LIFTING in areas such as the jawline and lower face. It’s better suited for more advanced signs of ageing in comparison to HIFU or radio frequency, however, we’ve seen beautiful results when we’ve combined the Thread Lift with both radio frequency and HIFU.

What Do You Think of This Skin-Tightening Before and After Images?

Co-founder of The Skin to Love Clinic, Kerri Lewis, comments:

“Non-surgical skin tightening, be it Thermage, the Thread Lift, or HIFU, can offer natural but noticeable results which are ideal for those who don’t necessarily want others to know that they’ve had anything ‘done’. The aim of non-surgical treatments is to look like a refreshed, best version of you, without the dramatic results of surgery. 

As you can see from these before and after photos, it’s not just your face or eyes that can be treated. Treatment on the body is also popular here at Skin to Love. The abdomen is a really popular area to treat post-pregnancy when the skin has lost it firmness, you’re seeing crepiness, and when the skin doesn’t bounce back when you move or stretch it, demonstrated here in some of these before images. Additionally, skin tightening AND stretch mark reduction is a popular combinations for the stomach. 

My suggestion to anyone wanting to explore skin tightening is to book a consultation with a practitioner or skin clinic that can offer you multiple treatment options so that they can match you with the best ones for your goals and skin. This way you can consider all the treatments that may be best for you and make an informed decision.”

    I had an excellent Hydrafacial which was recommended to me by Jane. I had my treatment with Nikki, who was so friendly and made me feel comfortable from start to finish. She was so professional and gave me all the information about each step of the facial. She struck the perfect balance between getting to know me/building a rapport, and also giving me the chance to switch off and relax. It was a lovely treatment and I’m so grateful to Nikki for all her knowledge and skill. My skin felt amazing afterwards and I received so many compliments about my “glowing skin”! Thank you for making it such a personable experience. We also added on the Slimyonik treatment which was so lovely and relaxing. I was able to add this on last minute after being recommended by Kerri. Again, tailoring the treatment to me personally added so much to my overall experience. I’m so glad I added this to the treatment and would recommend the skin to love clinic to anyone. Thank you Nikki, Jane & Kerri.

    10/10 - outstanding advice and treatment from Jane at Skin to Love. I had a burst capillary on my nose which I was covering for 2 years. With one consultation and one course of treatment Jane removed it. I should have consulted her sooner. Jane is now my ‘go to’ skin adviser. Quality service and exceptional value for money. Thank you

    Highly recommend the Skin to Love clinic , such a lovely relaxing atmosphere and so professional. I am very pleased with my treatment with Stuart and Jane both of whom took plenty of time to discuss my requirements, desired outcomes and exactly what to expect, including step by step explanation during treatment. Can’t wait to see the results emerging and beyond
    Dr Emma was so patient and gentle during my procedure. She is very good at what she does and is so kind! The treatment was one big step to making me feel more confident with my appearance and it is reassuring that she will answer any and all questions I have.

    Fabulous place. From the moment you step through the door you are warmly welcomed. Natalia is very knowledgable and friendly. She really listened to my concerns sensitively and gave me all the options available without pushing me to make a decision. I was given all the time I needed to make my choice and when I went back for my treatment it was such a relaxing experience. I went away knowing exactly what I needed to do as after care and I highly recommend Skin to Love

    Had my first session of Sculptlift, with Jane. I had so many questions and Jane explained in simple terms enabling me to understand what to expect. The procedure was painless and Jane talked me through every step. I was left without bruising which was suprising as I usually bruise quite badly. I am looking forward to seeing the final results.

    I cannot recommend this establishment enough. The receptionist was lovely and greeted me with a bright smile. Emma was friendly, kind and put me right at ease. After seeing how much my issue bothered me, she offered me an appointment the same day during her break to sort out my problem. I’m so happy and relieved that my issue is 95% sorted. Thank you so much Skin to Love! You’ve certainly got a customer for life now! I’ll be telling all my friends about this little gem.

    I have seen Jane a few times for my skin tag removal and it’s been an absolute amazing service!! She’s been super calming and helped me every step and if I had any tension it was gone in a minute or so, she get rid of all the issues super quick and pain free and has been super helpful with the healing process afterwards too. This clinic is quite far from me but I am willing to travel for such a good service. Would recommend to everyone you’ll be really happy
