Turn Back Time: Skin Tightening and Strengthening TreatmentsApril 8, 2016
Defy years, turn back time and regain your skin’s youth and tightness! Non-invasive rejuvenation treatments are becoming more popular due to walk-in/walk-out procedures which deliver almost immediate results.
As our lives become more hectic, our expectations to achieve the best results in a time sensitive manner increase.. When it comes to our appearance, it seems we place the same desire – quick solutions that allow us to go back to our everyday activities without downtime.
Dr Garry Cussell is an expert physician at Rejuvenation Clinics of Australia and a specialist in skin tightening procedures. He categorises the most requested treatments as quick procedures with subtle results: “There is a high demand for non-surgical procedures from returning patients – these can be done in multiple sessions for a gradual change, as opposed to a huge change.”
When it comes to the strength of our skin, it is inevitable to lose firmness to the passing years. Over time, our skin begins to lose volume and sag. This is because collagen and elastin fibers are no longer as tight as they used to be.
Laser treatments are one of the most popular aesthetic options that allow you to take a few years off your face in a quick session at our clinic, without the expense, pain and temporary absence from public life associated with surgery.
Laser treatments can turn back time with a fresher look
Laser procedures help tighten the skin by using heat to create controlled contraction in the deeper layers of the skin, prompting the body to respond by producing more collagen in the damaged area.
As new collagen is produced, the skin becomes more firm and fuller. This reduces the appearance of fines lines and stretch marks. Lasers work on different wavelengths depending on your skin condition and the required treatments. These can penetrate the surface, as well as the deeper layers of the skin.
People who suffer from mild lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone, texture and loose saggy skin are most suitable for laser treatments. There are many different laser treatments available at Rejuvenation Clinics of Australia, and once you have been assessed during an initial free consultation, your clinician will determine the best laser treatment for you.
While continuous lasers treat the skin as a whole and are most suitable for complete skin tightening, fractional lasers target specific skin areas, leaving surrounding healthy tissue unaffected. As the injury becomes greater, so does the skin’s capacity to heal.
Based on the initial treatment plan recommended after the introductory consultation, you may need several sessions to achieve the skin you desire. With some treatment options an immediate improvement can be seen, with continued improvements for the next two to three months.
Our goal at Rejuvenation Clinics of Australia is for your coworkers and loved ones commenting on how refreshed you look, as each treatment session provides you with subtle, yet pleasing results. People will notice you look rejuvenated, but they won’t be able to tell why!
Types of laser treatment
Each laser treatment is designed for a unique purpose. Whether you want to get ready for a special occasion and need a quick uplift, or want to undergo a long-term treatment to correct loose skin after a dramatic weight loss or childbirth, each treatment follows the same principles.
These treatments use heat to stimulate collagen production, which is essential to healthy, hydrated skin. A good choice for anyone suffering from skin discoloration or uneven skin tones, the results are gradual and discreet. Depending on which treatment is best for you, it may take several sessions to achieve the results you want.
Summarised below, you can find the most popular laser therapies available at Rejuvenation Clinics of Australia:
- Ultrasound for skin tightening is a is a breakthrough treatment usually recommended after a dramatic weight-loss or childbirth and acts by reaching certain depths of the skin, causing contraction and lifting. The number of treatments required for achieving the desired results depends on each individual’s skin and genetic heritage.
- Radio frequency, also known as Thermage, acts by stimulating deeper skin layers for contraction and lifting. The effects of one session can usually last for up to one year and present as a younger fresher look
- SkinTight is a few minutes-long procedure that acts by instantly tightening sagging and premature skin, giving firm rejuvenated appearance. Ideal for special occasions, it requires no downtime, but monthly maintenance for prolonged effects.
It is worth mentioning that while laser treatments can achieve mild facial lifts, they do not have the same effect as surgical procedures for reducing hollows due to age-related loss of volume or treating damaged skin from excessive direct sun exposure. This is why Rejuvenation Clinics of Australia recommends laser treatments in combination with other our treatments over a period of time to achieve optimal results.
Regardless of the treatment you want, it is essential to get a proper consultation before agreeing to a treatment. Rejuvenation Clinics of Australia has a diverse and highly experienced team consisting of Dr Cussell as chief physician, nurses and clinicians who handle consultations, procedures and post-consultations for our patients. “The highly qualified medical team at Rejuvenation Clinics of Australia is what makes our clinic unique,” Dr Cussell notes.
When considering the treatment you want to opt for, think about pricing in terms of the services provided, from the treatments itself, to customer care and support.
