4 Best Skin Tightening Treatments (Face and Body)

Are you tired of dealing with saggy skin on your face and body? Sagging skin, caused by a lack of collagen and loss of facial volume, can be a frustrating issue that affects various areas of the body, including the arms, legs, buttocks, abdomen, and face. But don’t worry! In this post, we'll explore effective treatments to tighten, firm and rejuvenate your skin, helping you achieve firmer, more youthful-looking contours. 

What Causes Saggy Skin?

Skin sagging is a natural process that occurs primarily due to ageing. This is because, around the age of 30, the body slows down, reducing cell renewal and affecting the production of collagen and elastin. These two substances are responsible for providing support and flexibility to the skin, and when they are in short supply, sagging occurs.

This process affects the entire body and can be noticed on the face, neck, arms, legs, abdomen, among others. 

Besides ageing, other factors can trigger sagging, such as excessive sun exposure, genetic predisposition, poor dietary habits, sedentary lifestyle, alcohol abuse, smoking, and more.

If you're unhappy with the appearance of your skin, there are various treatments to help enhance its look.

The 4 Best Skin Tightening Treatments 

1 - CO2 Laser Resurfacing (Non-Surgical Facelifts)

CO2 laser resurfacing, also known as non-surgical facelifts involves the use of laser technology to stimulate skin renewal and the production of new collagen-rich tissue,  removing older outer skin layers and triggering collagen growth.

It can also serve as a preventive measure against ageing, promoting skin softness, texture, hydration, radiance, and firmness. This method is highly effective in collagen stimulation, penetrating through the entire thickness of the skin. While remarkable results can be seen within the first 10 days, it's essential to note that the maximum stimulation occurs approximately six months later.

Treatment Areas:

CO2 laser resurfacing is an ideal procedure for facial sagging but can also be beneficial for areas such as the neck, arms, chest, buttocks, and abdomen.

2 - Radiofrequency

Radiofrequency is a sought-after treatment by many patients due to its effectiveness in combating skin sagging and collagen production. Carried out through a small device, this technique heats the tissue in a controlled manner, increasing local circulation and promoting skin firmness. 

Through high-frequency currents, radiofrequency reaches deeper layers of the skin, stimulating collagen production.

Results begin to be noticed approximately 15 days after the first session, while the emitted waves contract existing collagen fibres and stimulate the formation of new ones. 

Indicated both to prevent sagging and to maintain the effects of other treatments, radiofrequency is a painless option with no need for recovery time.

Treatment Areas:

Radiofrequency treatments are suitable for facial and body treatments, including jowls, cheeks, sensitive zones of the eyes and forehead, neck, decollete, underarms, as well as the area of the double chin, which are areas more prone to sagging.

3 - Microneedling

Microneedling is an effective procedure to stimulate collagen production. Using a roller with micro-perforations, it induces the formation of new collagen, resulting in firmer and more radiant skin. The benefits can be noticed after the first session, depending on the degree of sagging. This treatment is especially recommended for addressing facial sagging, helping to reduce blemishes, increase firmness, and diminish wrinkles.

Treatment Areas:

The treatment can be applied to all skin types and areas such as the face, neck, scalp, chest, hands, legs, scars, and stretch marks or other areas where signs of damaged or ageing skin are noticeable.

4 - Ultraformer (Ultrasound Treatments) 

The Ultraformer is an advanced device that uses High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) to stimulate collagen production, burn fat, and reach the subcutaneous muscle layer, providing a non-invasive treatment for lifting loose skin. Additionally, it can be combined with other methods such as biostimulators and radiofrequency. Compared to other technologies for reducing sagging and localised fat, the Ultraformer is known to cause less discomfort to the patient.

Treatment Areas:

The Ultraformer can be applied to both the face and body. The most sought-after areas by patients are face, neck, double chin, buttocks, abdomen, and love handles. But did you know that Ultraformer treatment can be used in other areas, which many people may not imagine, but the results are great? They are:

  • Crow's feet
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Body contouring
  • Droopy Eyelids, Circles and Sags
  • Sagging skin on arms
  • Flanks
  • Cellulite
  • Thighs.

Extra Tip - Ultraformer + Collagen Bio-stimulators

The combination of Ultraformer with collagen bio-stimulators offers a highly effective approach in combating body and skin laxity. By stimulating the production of proteins responsible for skin support, these treatments provide a completely non-invasive lifting effect. With a gradual and progressive action, this combination promotes longer-lasting results.
