Estimated reading time 4 minutes
If you’re struggling with sagging skin, you may have begun to think about a skin tightening treatment. But with a range of treatment options, you might be wondering which one will be best. As experts in non-surgical aesthetic treatments, in this guide, we’ll take you through some of the best skin tightening treatments available.
The best skin tightening treatments offered by RT Aesthetics
At RT Aesthetics, we have a range of skin tightening treatments that bring their own benefits and target different areas.
MED: HIFU Ultra+
HIFU stands for High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound treatment. It has quickly become one of the most popular non-invasive skin tightening treatments, thanks to the amazing results seen by clients.
At our Newcastle clinic, our HIFU treatment results are 92% more effective with a 97% customer satisfaction rate, thanks to the MED: HIFU Ultra+ treatment we utilise. This type of skin tightening treatment is only used by approved medical clinics like RT Aesthetics, so you know you’ll be getting the best care and quality results when you come to us. Non-medical HIFU treatments can be accessed at non-medical beauty salons, but these are 70% less powerful and less effective than what we can deliver.
How does MED: HIFU Ultra+ work?
HIFU works by firing ultrasound waves under the surface of the skin, which causes micro-injuries. This results in increased collagen, resulting in firmer and tighter skin. Our technology targets the SMAS layer of skin, which is the same area that’s tightened during conventional surgery – but our treatment has no downtime and is much more affordable.
What are the results of MED: HIFU Ultra+?
MED: HIFU Ultra+ is good for skin tightening and lifting. It can reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, as well as reducing enlarged pores and improving skin tone and laxity. It can help to sculpt the face and the body, depending on the areas that you want targeting; we offer MED: HIFU Ultra+ Face to target areas in the face such as jowls, chin, brow, and neck, and we also offer MED: HIFU Ultra Body to tighten loose skin in areas such as the stomach, arms, thighs, and buttocks.
The treatment is non-surgical and non-invasive with no recovery time needed. Results can be seen after just one session of MED: HIFU Ultra+ and can last up to three years. Often, only one treatment will be required, but for longer-lasting results, top-up treatments can be conducted every 12-18 months.
BTL Exilis Ultra
BTL Exilis Ultra is an award-winning skin tightening treatment that can also be used on the face and body. It’s a revolutionary treatment using both ultrasound and radio-frequency to specifically target wrinkles and reduce their appearance, and it has the added benefit of reshaping fat deposits.
How does BTL Exilis Ultra work?
BTL Exilis Ultra utilises a handheld device to allow for specific targeting. In the required areas heat will be generated through the device, penetrating the deep layers of the skin. This stimulates collagen production, which is what helps to tighten the skin. A cooling sensation will also be applied which helps to prevent the skin from overheating.
What are the results of BTL Exilis Ultra?
BTL Exilis tightens skin and reduces the appearance of wrinkles. Our BTL Exilis Ultra Face skin tightening treatment targets areas such as the eyes, forehead, jowls, neck and decolletage to smooth and contour skin. BTL Exilis Ultra Body targets areas such as the stomach, back, arms, and legs to sculpt the body and reduce cellulite, resulting in firmer, tighter skin. The treatment is non-invasive, and no downtime is required post-treatment.
For best results, we advise a course of four treatments, conducted 7-14 days apart. Results can be seen immediately after the first treatment and will improve throughout the course of the treatment.
Body sculpting results with the BTL Exilis Ultra can last for a few years, and face tightening can see results that last around two years. It’s important to remember that lifestyle will also play a part in how long results will last and can vary from patient to patient. A top-up treatment can be administered every 6-12 months to maintain skin tightening results.
