Loose skin is a problem that worsens with age, that everybody suffers from at some point. It happens as vital proteins, collagen and elastin, decrease in the skin due to a variety of internal and external factors. At PHI Clinic, we house the largest range of aesthetic devices in the UK for treating a wide variety of conditions, and opt for non-surgical approaches towards skin tightening.
These are the best ways to get firm skin, as chosen by our medical director, Dr Tapan Patel.
Radio-frequency And Ultrasound
The BTL Exilis uses a combination of radiofrequency and ultrasound to achieve tighter, firmer skin by stimulating collagen production. For the best results, we recommend 6-8 treatments for small areas of loose skin on the face and body, with the most popular treatment areas being the stomach and thighs.
Using radiofrequency to firm areas of skin, the INFINI device stimulates collagen production as well as improving texture and tone of the epidermis. One treatment is enough to see results, but more sessions can be arranged to further improve the area. This therapy is used mostly for the face, neck and decolletage to treat crepey skin.
Tightening Skin Laser vs Injectables?
With a unique delivery system, Lase MD offers a state of the art method of introducing vital products into the skin for rejuvenation. Repair, skin firming, and restoration are encouraged by cosmeceuticals like Vitamin C, Vitamin A, and Tranexamic acid to strengthen collagen, improve wound healing, and nourish the epidermis. Best results are achieved with multiple sessions of Lase MD, primarily for the face, but the body can also be treated.
Injecting dermal fillers into strategic points on the face will improve the appearance of facial skin laxity. Using a clinically proven set of strategic injection points, the natural contours of the face can be restored along with reducing loose skin. Results last up to 24 months and are noticeable immediately.
Ultrasound skin tightening with Ultherapy is a non-invasive procedure that stimulates collagen production to improve the appearance of skin. One treatment is enough to see an improvement, but it can be repeated, and results continue to develop for up to year after the therapy. Ultherapy is perfect for treating the face and neck area and has minimal downtime with proven results.
Ultraformer uses High Intensity Focused Ultrasound to lift the face and neck for decreased facial skin laxity. Stimulating collagen production, the decolletage can also be treated, producing immediately noticeable results that continue to develop over time. The stomach, knees and back are popular areas for treatment along with the upper body, with minimal to no downtime associated with the procedure.
