How Does Skin Tightening Work

Radio Frequency Treatment and Ultherapy Skin Tightening17202724_1435780889807862_3675589527331449996_n Can Radio Frequency Really Tighten Your Skin? Skin tightening and modern body-shaping procedures are the most popular skin tightening techniques available. Let’s face it, most people desire to have firmer skin, but they don’t have the time to exercise or eat right all of the time. Radio frequency is the process of heating the tissue from the inside-out, which can smooth out wrinkles and tighten the skin. Ultherapy is used also only using ultrasound penetrating down into the layers at a level a Plastic Surgeon does when doing an actual surgical facelift. At the Anti Aging Clinic , we combine skin-tightening procedures with microdermabrasion and laser facial rejuvenation to enhance the skin’s tone and texture and reduce the effects of sun damage. We provide free skin consultations! Skin Tightener and Tripolar Ion Bion We use the latest and most advanced radio frequency techniques. This safely and effectively allows selective heating of the tissues at various depths, tightening the lattice supporting fatty tissue and partially altering existing collagen, which then promotes new collagen formation. The results are astounding! Handpieces We Use Mini Handpiece This handpiece is applied to eyes, nose, hands and mouth area. Removes and reduces wrinkles and bags under eyes. Thermally tightens large pores; induces lymphatic drainage, elimination of toxins, lightening of skin tone and smoothes texture. Facial handpiece This handpiece has a built-in direct cooling system and is applied to face, neck and hands. Diminishes fine lines, removes and reduces wrinkles: shapes, tightens and lifts facial profile; enhances flexibility of skin, tightens large pores, lightens freckles and helps smooth skin. Body Large Area handpiece This large area handpiece is applied to the body. Shapes body figure, tightens, reduces cellulite, smoothes texture, induces fat reduction, helps eliminate toxins and enhances epidermal tissue. Tripolar RF (Radio Frequency): How it Works As your skin matures, its connective tissues begin to break down due to environmental effects, health factors, smoking, etc. This results in signs of aging, including wrinkles sagging skin, and fine lines. Radio Frequency technology effectively combines uni-polar and bi-polar technologies. This non-invasive and pain-free technology uses one head to deliver RF energy to the skin, selectively heating fat cells in the skin tissues. Tripolar RF uses one head to simultaneously heat the deep and shallow tissue layers while at the same time protecting the skin’s surface. It is a faster, easier way to smooth, tighten and regenerate the skin’s collagen without the complications that may arise by having a face surgery. The Tripolar RF energy penetrates the skin’s layers to selectively heat skin tissue and the extra-cellular matrix (ECM). Here, collagen fibers are embedded. Immediate contraction of the collagen fibers is caused by local heating, and at the same time metabolism is increased of the fibroblasts, which accelerates the production of new collagen and elastin fibers. The skin layer tightens due to the contraction of collagen fibers, and the regeneration of the collagen and elastin deposits. This creates smoother, healthier, and younger-looking skin!  

HIFU Non-Surgical Face Lifting

If you are looking for a non-surgical treatment to tackle the signs of aging, such as loose skin, drooping jowls or a heavy brow; then our non-surgical face lift using the latest HIFU ultrasound technology could be the perfect treatment for you.

What is a HIFU Face Lift?

HIFU stands for High Intensity Focused Ultrasound, it is the latest non-surgical, clinically proven technology, for lifting and tightening the face, neck and décolletage.

Working theory of HIFU: High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) directly delivers heat energy to skin and subcutaneous tissue that can stimulate and renew the skin's collagen and thus consequently improving the texture and reducing sagging of the skin. It literally achieves the results of a facelift or a body lift without invasive surgery or injections, moreover, an added bonus of this procedure is that there is no downtime. This technique can be applied to the face as well as the whole body, and also, it works equally well for people of all skin colours, in contrast to that of lasers and the intense pulse light. Helping to reduce the signs of aging, for a fresher, younger appearance

What areas can be treated with HIFU?

Our HIFU treatments can be effective for tightening, lifting and toning loose skin on the face, neck and décolletage and fat reduction. Individually it targets brow, jowl and neck lifting, as well as overall skin tightening and rejuvenation. You will see a noticeable improvement in facial contouring, fine lines and wrinkles.

How does HIFU work?

During a HIFU face lift treatment, the practitioner delivers ultrasound energy with precision, deep into the structural layers of the skin. The heat energy is delivered at temperatures between 65c and 70c, targeting the multi layers of the skin including the SMAS, deep dermis and epidermis. This precision targeting is unique to HIFU treatments. Other non-surgical skin tightening treatments are unable to target the specific tissues in this way. No other technology can target the SMAS layer. The SMAS layer (Superficial muscular aponeurotic system) is a deep layer of thin connective tissue that supports the skin. This layer is tightened during a surgical face lift procedure. Only with HIFU can this layer be targeted non-surgically.

As the sound waves bypass the surface of the skin, they rapidly heat the dermal and sub-dermal tissue, causing a low-level injury to the tissue. In the process of ‘healing’ itself, the tissue stimulates the production and organization of collagen fibres, which in turn leads to the long term tightening and lifting of the skin in the treated area. The creation of new collagen is a key part of helping the skin to maintain its youthful appearance.

Who is suitable for a HIFU face lift?

The procedure is best suited for clients between the ages of 35 – 75 years, who have mild-to-moderate skin laxity or looseness, and who are looking to delay the skin’s natural ageing process. HIFU is also effective at prolonging the results following a surgical face lift.

What happens during the procedure?

During your treatment, a handheld applicator is used to deliver focused heat at a precise depths below the surface of the skin. You will feel a warm sensation, deep within your skin. This is an indication that the collagen building process is working.

Does the treatment hurt?

The HIFU treatment is generally not painful, however there are areas where the treatment becomes more intense or uncomfortable; typically this is along the jaw line or the brow. Any discomfort will only be noticed at the moment the ultrasound energy is applied, lasting just a couple of seconds. During the treatment we can adapt the power output of the ultrasound to suit each client’s comfort levels.

How long does the procedure take?

Our  treatments take between 30 minutes and 1.5 hours, depending on the area you are having treated.

How long till I see results?

Some clients may see some tightening after their treatment. This is partly due to the instant contraction within the SMAS layer; it is also partly due to the body’s healing response to the treatment. This may be a mildly transient that will reduce in the next couple of days. The best results are seen over the coming weeks as the body starts to produce collagen and elastin. We recommend 2 – 3 months for best results and in fact improvements can continue up to 6 months.
