Why does my skin need tightening and lifting?
Skin tightening and skin lifting treatments are the tightening and lifting of the skin on the face, chin, neck, or body. At Dr CP Aesthetics we have the most effective methods for tightening loose and crepe-y skin whilst also improving skin tone and texture. In our late 20’s, the production of collagen and elastin slows down, we experience a loss in the proteins which help our skin stay firm, plump and toned. With this treatment we can deliver energy deep into the skin for collagen and elastin production, which will not only leave your skin looking fresher, tighter and more youthful in appearance but also more even in tone and smooth in texture. No matter your age everyone can benefit from this collagen stimulating treatment. With our non-invasive lifting, tightening, and firming treatments we have the ability to stimulate multiple layers of skin remodelling, not just the surface layer but deep into the dermis with little to no downtime.
External factors such as sun, gravity, pollution, and lifestyle all cause negative effects on our skin, which ultimately result in premature signs of aging such as lax skin. Within the skin are fibres called collagen and elastin. Collagen gives your skin strength, while elastin allows the skin to stretch and bounce back. As we age, we gradually lose these proteins, and the reasons behind this are plenty. Our bodies stop producing collagen and elastin as we age. Fortunately, we can utilise Skin Tightening and Skin Lifting treatments to regenerate elastin and collagen in aging skin is through Sun exposure accounts for around 85% of skin aging so wearing a daily sunscreen is imperative in your daily routine.
What should I expect after treatment?
The treated area may be pink for a short time after treatment, but this will subside quickly. Normal activities can be resumed immediately. For Body treatments, as a result of some of the triglycerides being metabolised by passing into the urinary system it is also quite normal to experience an increased need to go to the toilet. In fact, it is recommended for both face and body treatments that patients drink increased quantities of water for a short period of time after the treatments to encourage and enhance this particular removal process for the fat cells. Immediately after treatment, contraction of collagen fibres improves skin elasticity and the skin should appear firmer.
Are there any side effects?
Generally side effects are very mild and can include itching, numbness, a little heat, tenderness, redness and swelling. Less common side effects can include mild bruising, or blisters at the treatment area site, which resolve fairly quickly. However these are not common.
