Offered at the Bradford MySkyn Clinic, non-surgical skin tightening is a cosmetic beauty treatment that is designed to counteract the effects of gravity, age and weight gain. In other words, this treatment is designed to tighten loose and saggy skin around the body.

As we age, our skin loses elasticity, causing sagging to occur. People who have lost a lot of weight may also experience similar problems.

If you are feeling self-conscious about these changes in your body, a skin tightening treatment might have significant impact on your confidence and self-esteem. There is no reason to feel insecure about your appearance when a simple solution can be found right here.

MySkyn offers a course of skin tightening treatment that costs a fraction of the price, pain and risk demanded by surgical procedures like tummy tucks or facelifts, but the results can be just as successful.

What is Skin Tightening?

Non-invasive skin tightening uses alternative technologies to replace traditional surgical treatments that tighten loose skin.

As we age, the elastin and collagen proteins that naturally keep our skin plump and supple are produced less and less by the body. This means that our skin loses its elasticity and begins to droop, which is exacerbated by external factors like gravity, stress and facial movement. Rapid weight loss is a further culprit.

Most types of skin tightening treatment aim at stimulating collagen production within the dermal layers. This causes the skin to naturally regain its flexible nature, making the loose areas taught and healthy.

What Can Skin Tightening Treat?

Skin tightening can be performed anywhere on the body. The most common areas are those where sagging is most visible, such as the face, neck and arms.

Skin tightening is effective for people with wrinkles, cellulite, skin folds, reduced definition and sagging skin.

Treatable areas include:

  • Forehead
  • Cheeks and jowls
  • Neck and decolletage
  • Jaw
  • Lips
  • Arms
  • Stomach and abdomen
  • Legs, thighs and buttocks
  • Hands

Types of Skin Tightening Treatment Available in Bradford

Online research can often leave you feeling confused and unsatisfied. We recommend that you book a consultation with one of our aesthetic specialists to really understand what skin tightening involves and whether it is the right treatment for you. It could be that a different treatment will be more suited to gaining the results you desire.

Radiofrequency (Thermalift, Thermage and Exilis)

This type of treatment uses radio waves, delivered through a device that is run over the area of skin you’d like tightened. The heat from the radio waves stimulates collagen production, producing a firmer and more youthful complexion.

Intense Pulsed Light/Radiofrequency (Velashape)

This procedure uses a handheld device that targets fat cells with the aim of shrinking them. Infrared or radio waves penetrate the dermis and break apart fat deposits. The process also generates thermal energy which helps to promote collagen production and re-create tighter, smoother skin.

The number of sessions you will need to get visible results is dependant on the type of treatment you opt for. Your treatment plan could extend from one session to five sessions with an interval of weeks.

In general, results can take up to 4 months to develop to their full effect but last for up to two years with the occasional maintenance treatment.

Book a consultation to explore all your options and get professional answers.

Side Effects

As with the majority of aesthetic beauty treatments, there are mild to moderate side effects to skin tightening. You are changing your body to a small degree, and this will cause a little discomfort.

You can expect mild swelling, bruising and redness around the treatment area. In some cases people have reported a tingling sensation or even described the area as sore.
