Why skin tightening is necessary?
In Australia, our skin is exposed to many harsh environmental factors such as sun, harsh weather, gravity and bad habits such as smoking, stress and poor diet. These factors, combined with the body’s natural ageing process, leads to sagging and stretched skin on the face and body, giving an older and more tired appearance.
While a healthy lifestyle goes a long way to maintaining healthy skin and fighting some of the signs of ageing, it will not stop the natural ageing process our skin and muscles go through. As our bodies age, we lose vital support structures like collagen (responsible for firm skin) and elastin (responsible for the elastic properties of our skin). After the age of twenty our body starts to produce less collagen resulting in the skin becoming thinner and more susceptible to damage.
A non-surgical skin tightening treatment is becoming a necessary treatment as we age to make the face and body more youthful and re-establish the skin’s vital support structures.
Loose sagging skin can be the result of ageing, environmental factors, weight loss or post pregnancy. Whatever your reason, you want a solution that will tighten and lift your tired skin to give a more youthful and confident appearance. Skin tightening is popular after weight loss or post pregnancy and as a firming anti ageing treatment.
