skin tightening & firming
When we age, our skin can become saggy due to several reasons, including loss of skin elasticity, loss of fat, loss of muscle bulk, and changing bone structure. Early signs of ageing can be detected especially around the eyes for someone as early as in their early 30s. It can be seen even earlier on someone who has neglected their skin and has led an unhealthy lifestyle. With current advances in the medical aesthetics field, however, we can now restore and rejuvenate ageing faces by targeting all the factors mentioned above, using different tools. We can stimulate fibroblasts in the skin to produce more extracellular matrix and collagen, which makes our skin appear tighter and firmer. We can also use hyaluronic acid fillers to hydrate our skin and replace volume loss in the face.
How does it work?
First, I’ll sit down with you and listen to your concerns, taking time to assess your skin condition to determine the treatment plan to improve your appearance. In mild cases, hyaluronic acid filler injections will be able to make your skin tighter and firmer.
In slightly more advanced and severe cases, additional treatments involving radio-frequency and High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) may be recommended – especially for patients who would rather not undergo any surgical corrections.
Accent Ultra BiPolar Radio-Frequency works by emitting powerful controlled radio-frequency energy, which also heats up the skin in the targeted area. With the TEC sapphire cooled tips, the procedure is relatively comfortable as it protects the surface layers of the skin. High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) uses sound waves to precisely penetrate the superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS), where the connective tissues are, bypassing the epidermis and dermis layers.
Is there any downtime?
Skin tightening and firming can be achieved relatively comfortably with minimal downtime or no downtime at all. Before undergoing these treatments, I’ll talk with you to discuss possible downtimes and address any other concerns you might have.
How many treatments will I need?
This will depend on your skin condition before the treatment, and whether you want to maintain the results by continuously stimulating your collagen to grow.
