NON-INVASIVE SKIN TIGHTENING TREATMENTS
Our Skin Tightening treatments boost collagen and elastin production naturally. They work by heating the tissue under the skin’s surface, which tightens and lifts the skin, stimulates collagen and elastin production, and improves circulation and lymphatic drainage in the treated area.

The natural ageing process leaves our faces with an untoned appearance. Over time, the skin’s structure breaks down, depriving our skin of youthful volume and definition that it once had.
Our skin and nearly all of our other tissues stay in a consistent state of remodelling through our entire lives; however, as we get older, the regeneration capacity of the skin decreases because of changes in the structure and composition of connective tissue.
An essential component of our skin is collagen, a protein that is responsible for our skin’s elasticity. However, with ageing, the development of collagen reduces and that leads to sagging skin, fine lines around the mouth, chin and nose and bags under the eyes. A decrease in collagen production can cause many of the signs of aging.
Staying Younger for Longer
Loose and saggy skin can make you feel uncomfortable.
Your skin is the largest organ in your body, and it requires a lot of work to keep it looking great. A regular exercise program can help, but no one can stop the effects of ageing.
Saggy skin is a common problem that affects most at some point in our lives, which is why there is so much demand for skin tightening. Ageing is the most common cause. Your skin begins to deplete two substances as you age. Elastin is a protein that's found in virtually every tissue of the body. It's responsible for maintaining the resilience and elasticity of your skin and arteries. Elastin gives your skin some flexibility so it doesn't feel completely taut. Elastin enables your skin to bounce back to how it looked before when you stretch it. Collagen and elastin work together to tighten skin. Your tissues and bones also contain collagen, a protein that's found in most of your bodies. It is impossible for the human body to function without collagen. It's the protein that gives your body its structure.
These proteins suffer from age-related degradation. Collagen production slows down as we age. When there is less of it available, your body's structure is affected. Skin becomes saggy as a result.
Elastin is also susceptible to deterioration, which occurs with age. When you get older, your skin loses a lot of elasticity. When you stretch your skin, instead of getting a tightening effect, you get wrinkles and sags. All of this is the result of ageing. Additionally, there are some external factors that contribute to sagging skin.
An important factor is exposure to the sun's harmful UV rays. Collagen breakdown can be accelerated as a result of this. When it comes to skin tightening, sun exposure and ageing are dangerous combinations. Additionally, smokers experience a lot of problems. Your body is being exposed to more than just chemicals. Furthermore, you are creating a smoke-filled environment. Smoke can dry out your skin, making it more prone to sagging.
The non-invasive tightening of the skin of the body is exactly as it sounds. Essentially, you are able to enjoy skin rejuvenation without having to undergo surgery. By combining two amazing technologies, this advanced technique tightens and lifts your skin. Even better, they promote collagen and elastin production as well.
The most common areas of facial sagging are the eyelids, jowls and chin.
Eyelids – The upper eyelids sag as we age, in some individuals this can create visual field loss because the excess weight flaps over the eyelid or the skin pushes the eyelid down. This is called ptosis and caused by the loss of elasticity that is experienced as we age. In addition, the levator muscle has the job of lifting the eyelid, but this can stretch as we get older, which can cause the eyelid to droop.
Jowls and Chin – The jowls and chin area are usually the first facial area to show signs of sagging skin. Jowls cause the jawline to look soft and take away the youthful definition. It can also create a square shape face when we get older. It is caused by a combination of the loss of volume in the face and sagging skin.
What Causes Loose Skin?
Sagging skin is a serious problem for most individuals over forty; effecting the emotional and psychological well-being of many.
Hormones – More accentuated in woman due to the menopause, and the reduction of estrogen.
Environmental factors such as pollution and exposition to ultraviolet radiations.
Renovation of the cells – The cells start to renew more slowly, and the cells in the dermis stop making collagen and elastin like before. These proteins lose elasticity, and there is a loss of density in the epidermis.
Loss of fat tissue – The fat in the subcutaneous layers is reduced, and the epidermis begins to sag.
Shrinking bones – As we age the bones change in contour making us look older.
LOOSE SKIN IS ALSO DUE TO BAD HABITS INCLUDING:
Alcohol – alcohol can dehydrate you and this means there is lest moisture of your skin and prevent proper nutrients.
Smoking – the nicotine that is contained in cigarettes restrict blood flow to your facial skin, which means it is deprived of important nutrients and oxygen. It can also damage collagen.
Stress – if you are stressed all the time this can take a toll on your skin and mean that you mature faster.
Lack of exercise – with a lack of exercise, you can gain weight, which can cause the skin to stretch.
Poor diet – if you have a bad diet that is full of junk food, you aren’t getting the vitamins and minerals your skin needs to stay healthy.
Lack of sleep – without the rest that your body needs, the skin has to work harder to repair itself.
Constant muscle movements – by frowning and causing lines and wrinkles to develop, this can affect the skin and its elasticity.
