Loose skin surgery certainly isn’t for everyone and so it is that many people come to PHI Clinic looking for non-surgical options that are quick and easy but with the same results as going under the knife; especially those that only need a little help here and there and want to avoid the pain, recovery, and expense of loose skin surgery.
At PHI, we have multiple solutions to sagging skin concerns which we can offer alongside other complementary procedures to offer a more holistic approach to restoring your former shape and confidence. We recognise that no two people will have the same journey to achieve their desired body shape, our expertly trained medical staff will listen closely to your goals and design a detailed treatment plan that will address your concerns with the best non-surgical skin tightening devices, for safe and effective procedures.
Coolsculpting Skin Tightening
Sometimes exercise and dieting alone can not shift all of our unwanted weight and you may be left with stubborn fat pockets that just won’t shift. This is due to the uneven distribution of fat cells but can be addressed easily in many areas of the body using Coolsculpting.
This treatment deploys cryolipolysis to freeze areas of fat, the fat cells die and are flushed naturally from the body and can not grow back. The surface skin is not affected and the innovative technology means that our patients experience some cold sensations but no real discomfort. The treatment is relatively quick and easy; you can sit back and relax during the session and some of our patients even bring their laptops, so it’s business as usual.
Also, there is no downtime, so you can return to your day as normal once the treatment is complete. We can treat various areas of the body with Coolsculpting, including the abdomen, flanks (muffin tops), back, thighs, underarms (Bingo wings), under the chin, and neck. While CoolSculpting is not specifically a skin tightening treatment, it can noticeably reduce skin laxity in treated areas and is often the perfect treatment to have in conjunction with our other devices.
Best Non-Surgical Skin Tightening: Exilis
BTL Exilis is a non-surgical option that is designed to help tighten sagging skin. Utilising radio frequency and ultrasound, the Exilis heats the affected area in order to stimulate fat lipolysis (fat cells breaking down) and this action helps to tighten the skin. The pulses delivered help to reduce the volume of fat cells and accelerate collagen production, which firms the skin and improves the skin’s texture.
The Exilis can be used on both face and body as it has two hand-pieces. The treatment and healing process promotes collagen production, which tightens up loose skin, leaving you with a more youthful look. On average, most of our patients will require 6-8 sessions of Exilis to see the desired result. It is advised that patients have treatment every 1-2 weeks. The length of a session is determined by the area of the body being treated and can be between 30 and 60 minutes.
There is no downtime associated with the Exilis and patients may expect a warm sensation during treatment, but this is not uncomfortable and does not remain after the session, although there may be some initial localised redness and swelling this will decrease naturally and quickly following your appointment.
Best Non-Surgical Skin Tightening: HIFU
High Intensity Focused Ultrasound treatment (HIFU) can be used to reduce skin laxity by delivering precisely targeted controlled pulses of ultrasound to the areas of concern, which ignites a bodily process called thermal coagulation. This causes existing collagen fibres to denature, which in turn stimulates new collagen synthesis and regeneration.
This is a non-invasive procedure that does not negatively affect the outer layer of skin, bypassing the surface to deliver energy to the deeper layers to promote collagen production. Ultrasound treatments can be used to address loose skin on the décolletage, jawline, eyebrows, chin, neck, nasolabial folds (between the nose and mouth), and eyelids, as well as being able to affect uneven skin tone and texture.
Results from Ultraformer are noticeable almost immediately in some cases but will continue to improve for up to a year after treatment, the treatment is not painful and there is no downtime as is often the case of loose skin surgery.
truSculpt Flex Muscle Toning Treatment
When you have lost the stubborn weight and tightened the slack skin, you can also come to us to tone up the muscles and strengthen your body. A toned, muscular physique is a desirable thing for both physical and emotional wellbeing, but it can take a long time to achieve. Once again, PHI Clinic can accommodate this goal and build body sculpting into your weight loss journey with relative ease and comfort.
This is also a non-surgical option with profound and exciting results. The innovative technology held by truSculpt Flex works through stimulating the muscle tissue in order to create a contraction of the isolated area, and this action mimics the same movement as a contraction created through voluntary strength training. Unlike traditional strength training, however, you are able to take part in these sessions if you have some weakness or restrictions in movement.
You are also more likely to see an increase in muscle density and growth with greater rapidity than you might with heavy lifting and weight training. This is because the electrical pulses created by the truSculpt hand-piece are more intense than physical exercise, causing the muscles to work harder and therefore allowing the treatment to cause rapid results. Different intensities can be used, and various problem areas can be targeted.
Most people will begin to see the best results after taking part in four treatments, each session lasts for around 45 minutes. Once you have reached the peak of your sessions, it is likely that you may only need one session every 3-6 months, in order to maintain your results.
