How to tighten and lift your skin while eliminating wrinkles
Achieving more youthful skin is a goal many of us share after reaching a certain age. Skin starts to sag, wrinkles begin to show and our appearance just doesn’t seem as bright as it once did. Thankfully, we now have an array of non-invasive aesthetic treatments that will help us achieve a healthier, younger looking complexion.
Here are some of our top picks for lifting, tightening and smoothing your skin:
Anti-wrinkle injections are one of the most popular non-invasive treatments for reducing wrinkles and fine lines. Containing botulinum toxin type A (BTX-A), which is a form of muscle relaxant, anti-wrinkle injections work to relax and weaken the muscles that are responsible for wrinkles and frown lines.
When treated regularly, anti-wrinkle injections can help keep those pesky lines and wrinkles at bay. They can also help to prevent lines from forming if you act proactively. Results can be further enhanced by combining the injections with supporting skin tightening and rejuvenating treatments.
Another form of cosmetic injection, dermal filler injections reintroduces hyaluronic acid into the skin to restore lost volume and enhance certain features. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in your skin that stabilises its structure, boosts hydration and improves elasticity
When injected into the skin, dermal filler can fill facial lines, wrinkles and deep folds, reduce tired and sagging skin under the eyes, smooth creping skin around the lips, and plump certain areas such as lips and cheeks. You can also use the treatment to contour your face, refine the chin, augment your nose and to improve the appearance of scars.
Ultraformer III is fast becoming known as the non-invasive face lift. Using ultrasound technology, Ultraformer III precisely targets the SMAS layer of the skin (that’s the layer that surgeons pull back when doing a face lift) with short pulses that stimulate new collagen production.
The end result is tighter, more lifted skin on the cheeks and neck (great for battling the dreaded turkey neck!). The treatment also works to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and hooding and sagging around the eyes. When used in conjunction with cosmetic injectables, you can achieve even greater results.
