What can I do to tighten my skin?
Our tips on how to tighten skin and reduce the effects of ageing.
Your skin is one of the first giveaways of age, given that it naturally changes in appearance as we get older. One of the most noticeable effects of this process is a loss of firmness in skin, as the structure of the dermis changes over time and causes the skin to become weaker.
However, there are several things you can do to tighten your skin and add firmness back to the face. Keep reading to find out what options could be right for you.
Step 1: Prevention
The best thing you can do to ensure you have younger-looking skin for longer is to start taking care of your skin from an early age. Drinking plenty of water, using sunscreen and sticking to a healthy lifestyle in general will help ensure you glow from the inside out.
Step 2: Treatment
For fine lines and skin that has already started showing signs of sagging and and other effects of age, microneedling can be an effective way to restore a smoother, firmer look. This treatment uses a device with fine needles of varying lengths to penetrate the skin and trigger the body’s natural healing response – which in turn stimulates the production of collagen.
Combined with electroporation to allow a skin-boosting serum to be delivered deeper into the dermis, this results in skin that is stronger, firmer and smoother than before thanks to the new collagen fibres that form after regular sessions.
You can even support the effects of this treatment with your own micro needle roller at home, alongside a tailored skincare routine to help give you that healthy, younger-looking complexion.
At Skinsmiths, our skin experts are highly trained in performing this treatment and can help guide you on your journey to your best skin ever. If you’d like to find out more about microneedling, or advice on how best to care for your skin, come in and see us for your free consultation.
