Skin tightening, when treating stubborn pockets of fat or rejuvenating the facial skin, is a popular treatment. With the advances in the science of aesthetics, there is now no need to opt for surgery. Certain non-surgical treatments come with minimal downtime, natural-looking results, and are even relatively comfortable to perform. Without cutting the skin or the need for general anaesthetic, great non-surgical skin tightening results can be achieved right here in Knightsbridge! But how do they work? Well, that depends on which treatment…
Carboxytherapy is a clinically proven and minimally invasive skin tightening treatment that rejuvenates the repairs the skin. Suitable for both face and body use, carboxytherapy treats puffy eyes, cellulite, jowls, and bingo wings. The treatment involves tiny injections of carbon dioxide just beneath the skin. This stimulates the natural production of collagen and elastin, skin proteins essential to laxity, firmness, and volume. Over time, you will develop healthy, glowing, and younger-looking skin thanks to these proteins and increased blood flow to the area.
The process works by tricking your body into thinking it needs more oxygen, which kick-starts its natural restorative processes. Blood flow is increased, collagen and elastin production rises, and even some fat cells are destroyed to help the skin appear renewed and firmer.
Body and facial skin tightening
This treatment is ideal for those areas that diet and exercise just don’t seem to touch. Problematic stores of fat on the inner thighs, love handles, stomach, arms, jowls, and chin are sometimes stubborn and are resistant to our best efforts, but these treatments can help. Combining the power of vacuum technology with radiofrequency to contour the areas and tighten the skin.
We use radiofrequency to target stubborn fat pockets, which reduces fat cell volume and increases the metabolism. During the treatment, the vacuum mechanism increases both local blood circulation and lymphatic drainage, which recycles and rids the body of waste. The cells are minimised, and metabolism heightened so that those broken down will be flushed from the body, while freshly stimulated collagen production tightens and strengthens the skin.
The thread lift, or the non-surgical facelift, is perfect for sagging facial skin. It’s a minimally invasive treatment that involves the placement of biodegradable threads within the skin. These threads work to pull back areas of the skin that are sagging to achieve a natural-looking yet refreshed appearance. This treatment minimises nose-to-mouth lines, lifts sagging cheeks, and lessens the appearance of a soft jawline and jowls. The thread lift stimulates the body’s natural reaction to a foreign body, i.e. the threads, so that we produce extra collagen and improve blood circulation. This contracts the skin tissue but also ensures that your results continue to develop while the threads remain intact. These threads naturally breakdown in your skin over a period of a few months, but you can expect to see your results for 18 months or longer. This treatment is perfect for those who are seeking to treat sagging areas yet to also achieve skin tightening effects too.
