Recent advances in non-surgical interventions mean that there are now a range of options for anyone considering effective skin tightening in Manchester.
In the last few years, technological advances have created treatments that have profound impacts yet are completely free of invasion – treatments such as laser, radiotherapy and ultrasound.
The impact of skin tightening can be profound. Treatments can address concerns around the face and neck – tackling sagging jowls and lifting eyebrows, the eye area, the jawline and more.
Other treatments can tighten skin on the abdomen, the thighs, the arms and other areas of the body.
Any area of concern, any skin that sags and would benefit from tightening can be addressed at a leading Manchester clinic.
Non-invasive procedures are the perfect balance between full cosmetic surgery such as a neck lift or liposuction and free alternatives such as exercise.
Exercise is unable to address certain concerns, for instance it cannot rectify sagging jowls, and it also lacks precision. The health benefits of exercise are to be encouraged, but there is no exercise that can quickly target sagging skin in a specific area.
Full cosmetic surgery can certainly tighten sagging skin, but it costs thousands of pounds, requires general anaesthetic and recovery time typically run to weeks.
Non-invasive procedures sit in the middle. They have a clear impact, but are affordable and do not impact your life through lengthy recovery time or the stress of an operation.
The treatment works by combining radiofrequency and cellutone technology to treat both the cause and symptoms of cellulite.
Radiofrequency reshapes the collagen found deep in the skin, destroying fat cells and stimulating the production of stronger collagen.
Cellutone technology increases the blood flow and supply and rids the body of metabolic waste while also restoring connective tissue – tightening and toning the skin.
Benefits can be seen after a single treatment though it is usual to have a course of four treatments.
To get a true sense for the results achievable, simply have a look at the before and after image gallery below – these are patients Dr Nyla saw, many in her Liverpool clinic, the results truly life enhancing.
The most common areas are the buttocks and things – this where cellulite is most commonly found.
Laser skin tightening works by heating the deep layers of skin to stimulate collagen and elastin creation – these the substances that are depleted as we age, leading to sagging skin and signs of ageing.
Laser skin treatments have risen in demand once more as newer versions of the technology have become available.
Co2 laser treatments were common and, while effective, these were a somewhat rudimentary treatment, working by completely removing the surface layer of skin to reveal a fresh layer.. Skin would be tightened, but the recovery time was relatively lengthy and there was a risk of scarring.
Modern treatments such as UltraPulse laser skin resurfacing penetrate deeper and more quickly – they reach the target cells with less thermal damage to surrounding tissue. This leads to the double benefit of profound results with a shortened recovery time – the rejuvenation is initiated without scarring to the surface.
Radio frequency and Ultrasound are forms of non surgical interventions available for skin tightening in Manchester that work by delivering energy to the deep tissue. This stimulates collagen creation, this then facilitating tissue contraction and skin tightening.
Growing rapidly in popularity, it is worth noting that an ultrasound treatment such as ultherapy is the option trusted by the likes of Jennifer Aniston and Gwyneth Paltrow – women who look stunning, yet natural.
Skin Tightening Manchester – Key Information
By visiting a Manchester clinic and opting for a non-invasive skin tightening procedure it is possible to be in and out – to have the procedure inside just a couple of hours – less if it is to target one specific part of the face or body. Treatment time can be as little as 30 minutes.
There are likely to be a number of different treatments available – for instance Ultherapy and Ultraformer and laser skin tightening.
Understandably, most people will not be experts in the differences between each option and which one would be the most suitable.
It is therefore important to book a consultation so that the options can be discussed and a skilled practitioner can recommend a course of treatment.
What can be said is that the following can all be treated.
And more besides.
Some of these areas are clearly more delicate than others. The technology is extremely targetted, working deep layers of the skin, yet in a way that is wholly safe and at most leads to short-term redness and minor, short-term swelling.
The temperatures created are closely controlled, ranging from 65 to 75 degrees centigrade in the case of Ultraformer, this enough to stimulate collagen creation, but not harmful or painful.
Am I a suitable candidate?
In the vast majority of cases, anyone who has areas of skin they would like to see tightened is a suitable candidate, this because the treatments are non invasive and so only stimulate natural processes.
The range of available treatments to address sagging or loose or ageing skin mean that almost any part of the body can be treated.
Please arrange a consultation to discuss your specific hopes for treatment.
Which treatment is most suitable for me?
It is impossible to answer this in a web page as the suggested treatment for any patient would be ascertained via consultation.
What can be said is that, whether it is Ultherapy, or Ultraformer3 or NuEra, which uses radio frequency or laser skin tightening, there are likely to be suitable treatment options that will deliver the visible changes you desire.
The practitioner would discuss the options during consultation, enabling you to make a decision free of pressure post consultation.
How long do treatments last?
Non invasive treatments do not last forever, but they do produce results that last for a good many months and often closer to two years.
However, the specific details would vary by type of treatment, body area being treated and the nature of the tightening. Further, more specific timeframes would be discussed at consultation.
It is usual to have follow-up procedures in future to maintain the results achieved.
Are there side effects to treatment?
One wonderful benefit of non invasive treatments is that side effects are limited to mild swelling, some potential redness and perhaps a short term tingling sensation.
This is quite different to a full surgical procedure, where there is a need for general anaesthetic and then a reasonably lengthy recovery and recuperation period.
How quickly are results visible?
In some instances, results will be visible immediately, but these will not be the final results.
Collagen creation will continue and the results will become more profound, restoring the skin elasticity that the patient desired.
Often, only one treatment is required to achieve optimal results.
However, as with questions above, fuller details can only be provided at a consultation that is specific to your requirements.
Please arrange a consultation with a trusted Manchester specialist.
