An introduction to Non-Surgical Skin Tightening

Non-Surgical Skin Tightening has a long history of success worldwide. This treatment is a non surgical alternative for skin lifting and tightening.

The treatment is designed to perform a revitalisation skin treatment, the treatment is beneficial for skin tightening, skin thickening and to improve skin texture thus reducing the appearance of wrinkles. Once inserted into the skin, the treatment activates collagen synthesis to gradually tighten and rejuvenate the skin. This provides the skin with a tighter feel and appearance and more of a youthful look. Typically, around 10-30 threads are used to treat an area. The treatment can be used on the face and body.

Results from the treatment are most noticeable after 8-12 weeks and last up to 2 years. The Non-Surgical Skin Tightening treatment is made from a dissolving suture material which is reabsorbed into the body after 6-8 months.
