How to tighten your skin without surgery

Changes in body shape, lifestyle and the activities we take part in can greatly affect our skin’s elasticity and appearance. Age also plays a major role, with skin losing elasticity and beginning to sag as we get older due to collagen loss.

The pain, risk and downtime associated with skin tightening surgery make it a less appealing option to remove excess skin from problem areas. Thankfully, there’s now a range of non-invasive aesthetic treatments for skin tightening and stubborn fat reduction that produce long-lasting results, without the major pain and downtime.

Here are our top treatments for tightening your skin without going under the knife:

 

Skin Tightening 

At Artisan, we offer a range of skin tightening treatments, including Thermage® and Ultraformer III. Thermage® is a radiofrequency treatment that transforms the skin below the surface, stimulating collagen and the body’s natural renewal method to tighten the skin and slow the ageing process. It triggers re-strengthening of the collagen fibre structures in the epidermal layers that provide the support to our skin. Immediately after the treatment, your skin is visibly tighter as the collagen fibres contract, achieving a firmer, smoother appearance.

Ultraformer III is also a favourite among many of our clients for its immediate tightening, lifting and contouring effects on the skin. Ultraformer III targets specific sagging areas with ultrasound technology, allowing deeper penetration and highly targeted results. It targets the layer of skin surgeons pull back when doing a facelift, stimulating new collagen production and providing long-term tightening of the skin. Clients’ facial contours show peak improvement at eight to 12 weeks, with additional firming throughout the following 12 months.

 

Fat Dissolving

Fat dissolving injections target and effectively reduce small and stubborn fat pockets by injecting a substance called phosphatidylcholine (PC) into the treatment area. PC is a natural compound derived from soybean. When it’s injected directly into fat pockets, it causes the fat cells to rupture and breakdown via the body’s usual metabolic process, resulting in a more contoured shape. The treatment delivers long-lasting results (up to two years) and is best for anyone with small stubborn areas of fat around the hips, thighs and stomach.

 

Body Contouring

Our body contouring treatments can help you eliminate stubborn fat, with no incisions, needles and minimal to no downtime. CoolSculpting® works to comfortably cool your fat deposits, causing them to damage and perish. truSculpt® meanwhile, uses radio frequency technology to target, heat and destroy fat cells, reducing body fat and reshaping problem areas to deliver a more firm and contoured shape. Both are highly effective treatments that can help you achieve up to 24% of fat loss in the treated area.
