Skin Tightening Rejuvenation Treatments

Skin Tightening Treatments in Suffolk

As we age, collagen formation slows and skin can become lax.

 

In my skin clinic here in Ipswich, Suffolk I use the latest technologies for the ultimate skin tightening and rejuvenation - delivering sensational results - Radio Frequency Microneedling - stimulating the production of collagen through controlled trauma and radio frequency technology, Radio Frequency to gently heat the skin initiating collagen production causing fibres to contact helping the skin to tighten and HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) to generate heat in the deep layers of your skin, targeting weak and damaged skin cells and boosting the body's natural repair process.

Focus Dual HIFU Facial for Suffolk

High Intensity Focused Ultrasound for Skin Tightening (The Non-Surgical Face Lift)

Introducing my brand new Focus Dual HIFU Skin Tightening Facial - High Intensity Focused Ultrasound, otherwise known as the 'non-surgical face lift' has been described by Medical News Today as 'part of a growing trend for anti-ageing treatments that provide some of the benefits of a facelift without the need for surgery'. Recently having invested in the cutting-edge Focus Dual from Lynton Lasers - my HIFU treatment provides unrivalled safety credentials and delivers incredible accuracy and results. The Focus Dual technology is one of the few treatments that can reach the superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS)—which was previously accessible only via surgery

 

What does a HIFU Skin Tightening Facial do?

 

Well, the clue is in the name! HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) uses ultrasound to generate heat in the deep layers of your skin, targeting and weak and damaged skin cells and boosting the body's natural repair process. It's a fantastically efficient treatment, too; because of the way it works with your body's natural collagen and carries on boosting cell renewal, you only need one treatment to see real results and after that juts an annual top up. HIFU works best on people with mild cases of sagging skin.

 

The procedure...

 

As with most non-invasive facial treatments, there is no down time, so you'll be able to book a session whenever it suits and get straight back to your usual activities afterwards. The treatment gives exceptional results without the risks you would expect with a surgical facelift, and it's fast too!

 

I'll start by gently cleansing the area, marking the areas for treatment and then applying a gel. I then use a handheld device on the area I'm treating, which produces ultrasound waves in short bursts. Sessions last anything from half an hour to 2 hours depending on how big an area you'd like treated.

 

It's not usually painful - some people feel a prickly sensation and it can feel a bit achy afterwards, but this soon wears off and you can go back to work, or whatever you were planning, straight away.

3JUVE Remodel

IPL Laser for Skin Tightening

The 3JUVE® is one of the latest developments in anti-ageing skin technology and I’m happy to be able to offer it to my clients.

 

3JUVE® is a safe and effective treatment for three anti-ageing skin concerns; fine lines and wrinkles, discolouration and loss of firmness, and the Remodel programme can be used with the other 3JUVE® technologies to create a bespoke plan or as a standalone treatment for lifting and tightening mature skin.

 

Remodel skin tightening treatments can help to improve sagging around the face and neck - especially around the eyes and jawline – and gives you an instant subtle lifting effect.

 

3JUVE® Skin Tightening treatment will help to give you a younger tighter complexion; you get firmer skin tissue which leads to subtle skin lifting and tightening, for younger looking skin.

IPL for skin tightening - how does it work?

You might feel a little bit of discomfort – usually it’s just short sensations of deep heating. These are usually described as a pleasant, warming sensations, in fact It is sometimes described like a hot stone massage to the face.

 

Depending on your skin and personal tolerance you might feel ‘hot spots’ where the heat can feel a bit more intense or concentrated. If you feel any discomfort, just let me know.

IPL for skin tightening - what should I expect?

IPL treatment is less painful than traditional laser treatment but it can feel mildly uncomfortable. 

 

As the hand piece is gently applied to your skin and the pulses of light begin, you may feel a slight stinging sensation – this has often been  described as being something like having a small rubber band flicked at your skin. 

 

Over the course of your treatment, and as your skin begins to clear, you’ll normally find that the treatments become more comfortable.

IPL for skin tightening - aftercare

There should be no down time at all with 3JUVE® skin tightening. You can even apply make-up straight after a session. Results should be visible straight away and the best news is that they are long-lasting. After your treatment, your skin will have a rosy glow and plumped up appearance which dissipates after 24hrs.

 

Over the course of your treatments, collagen production will be stimulated and the skin tightening should be more obvious over the following months. A course of treatments is required, typically six sessions, followed by maintenance treatments every two – three months. I’ll talk to you about any maintenance treatments or complementary treatments/products I think you’d benefit from when I carry out your treatment.

 

IPL for skin tightening - pre-treatment cautions

 

3JUVE® Remodel is safe and effective but shouldn’t be used if you have any of the following:
 

  • A current sun tan, either from sunbeds or fake tan/tanning products.

  • Cancer, including any history of malignant melanoma

  • Pregnancy

  • Diabetes

  • Combining various aesthetic procedures and cosmeceuticals is likely to bring optimal results. If you’d like to find out more, I’m happy to answer any questions

Focus Dual

Radio Frequency Micro-needling

Focus Dual Radio Frequency Micro-needling is the cutting-edge technology from Lynton Lasers, delivering highly-effective skin tightening, lifting, firming and contouring results with the unrivalled safety of Lynton's medical-grade technology.

Brand new to Crystal Rose Skin Clinic in 2023, Focus Dual brings with it incredible precision in order to deliver significant rejuvenation results.
 
The fractional radio frequency micro-needling Focus Dual handpiece uses a vacuum to lift the target area of your skin into the device - delivering the treatment with pinpoint accuracy and precision at the depths required to see real results. 
 
Using a combination of radio frequency (using energy to heat the deep layers of your skin) and precision micro-needling, Focus Dual triggers our skin's natural healing process through controlled trauma, with the added benefit of radiofrequency to heat the dermis of your skin, tightening it from within - both of these technologies trigger the production of collagen - lifting, tightening, firming and contouring your skin - inside and out - to deliver long-lasting, impressive results.

Lynton's answer to the Morpheus 8 technology, Focus Dual delivers the same rejuvenation results with the confidence of Lynton's proven safety records and British manufacturing. 

Focus Dual is a dual-treatment technology, also delivering first-class HIFU treatments for the ultimate skin rejuvenation solution. Depending on your specific skin concerns and goals, it may be suggested that both RF micro-needling and HIFU are required for optimum results. These two treatments can be delivered simultaneously in one appointment across different target areas (e.g. RF micro-needling across cheeks and forehead, and HIFU across jowls and neck). Alternatively, these two complementary treatments can be built into a bespoke treatment plan with both technologies being used across all target areas over the course of a series of appointments.

Take a look through the videos below and see the sensational results for yourself. Should you wish to find out more before booking, simply get in touch via the contact form and I will get back to you as soon as possible to discuss in more detail.

What does Radio Frequency Micro-needling Treat?

Radio Frequency Micro-needling is he ideal treatment for those suffering with:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines

  • Acne scars

  • Surgical scars

  • Crepey neck skin

  • Loose and sagging skin

  • Uneven skin tone and texture

  • Pigmentation

  • Large pores

  • Loss of volume and hydration

 

What to Expect from Focus Dual Radio Frequency Micro-needling

This unique technology cools your skin as you go through treatment, and as such, the discomfort felt during the treatment is much lower than with traditional micro-needling. This means that no numbing cream is required (should you feel more comfortable having numbing cream, however, this can still be applied). 

On arrival, we will have an initial consultation where we will discuss your main desires and target areas for treatment.

 

The areas will be cleaned thoroughly before we commence treatment. 

 

During treatment the Focus Dual RF micro-needling handpiece will suck your skin up into the device using a vacuum, once inside the device head the micro-needles are inserted into the skin at the precise depths required for optimum rejuvenation results. Once inserted, the radio frequency is delivered and the needles are retracted. This process is done across the entire treatment area, with a small overlap between each injection site to ensure complete coverage.

 

Where you have specific areas of concern, we can repeat the process on these target areas 2-3 times for optimum results. 

 

Some may feel mild discomfort during the treatment, however, this discomfort soon disappears after the treatment is finished. The skin can feel a little tight and tingly for up to 24 hours post-treatment and you may experience a little redness for up to 48 hours post-treatment - this won't be as severe as with traditional micro-needling.

 

For 48 hours post-treatment we ask that you protect your skin by not exposing it to UV rays, exercising, swimming or introducing any risks of infection such a dirt or bacteria.

The results of your Radio Frequency Micro-needling will continue to improve over the course of 3 months. You can expect smoother, tighter and clearer skin with overall improved complexion and skin health.
