What is Skin Tightening
When you’re younger, your skin is supple and elastic. It’s able to bounce back and rejuvenate much more quickly. Unfortunately, after the age of 30, skin elasticity and collagen levels begin to decline. This results in sagging as well as lines and wrinkles that stand out.
Thanks to advancements in cosmetic medicine, there are a number of non-invasive treatments that can reverse some of these effects. At Skin Confidence Clinic, we offer a selection of skin tightening treatments that rejuvenate the skin at a deeper level.
Our treatments are safe, effective and produce long-lasting results, particularly when they’re paired with a good at-home skincare regime.
Skin Tightening Treatment Options
During your consultation at Skin Confidence Clinic, we will take the time to understand your concerns and evaluate your skin before recommending skin tightening treatments.
When it comes to tightening the skin, these are the treatments we offer:
This radiofrequency-based treatment helps tighten and rejuvenate the skin by heating up the dermis. Along with tightening the skin, patients can also expect fewer fine lines and better contours.
During treatment, a handpiece is applied to the affected area. Patients can expect a heating and cooling sensation as well as a gentle vibration. Once the deeper layers of the skin reach a specific temperature, the tightening and rejuvenation process begins. This process includes an increase in collagen production.
The procedure takes about 90 minutes to complete and patients are free to return to their usual schedules directly after. There may be some redness and swelling across the treatment site but this will subside within a day or two. The results of Thermage FLX treatments are the most noticeable two to six months later.

Fotona 4D is an innovative laser treatment that uses four modes to revitalise and tighten the skin. Treatments target both the oral cavity and the exterior of the skin to stimulate collagen production and rejuvenate the skin from the inside out.
During treatment, laser energy is delivered to rapidly heat the deepest layers of the skin. This stimulates the body’s wound healing response and, as collagen increases over time, skin tone and tightness continues to improve.
Fotona 4D treatments require no downtime, meaning that patients are free to immediately return to all usual activities. You can expect to see full results within two to three months. For optimal skin tightening, we may suggest you visit Skin Confidence for a course of up to four treatments.
The Accent Prime is an advanced skin tightening, body contouring, and aesthetic enhancement machine that can perform effective treatments with natural-looking results using ultrasound and radio frequency technology in as little as 30 minutes.
Accent Prime can be used for body contouring, face and neck contouring, skin tightening, laser eyelid lifts or laser blepharoplasty, skin resurfacing and peeling, cellulite removal, stretch mark removal, and to improve the appearance of scarring.
One Accent Prime treatment session can be enough for some patients to receive excellent results, but often, multiple treatments will be required to reach the patient’s goals. Additional sessions, about once or twice a year, may also be necessary to maintain optimal results.

The Ultherapy system uses ultrasound technology to smooth out and tighten the skin by stimulating collagen production.
Once the applicator is applied to the affected area, high-frequency sound waves penetrate the epidermal layer of the skin. This gradually tightens the skin and improves skin tone over the course of several months.
While some patients will benefit from just one Ultherapy session, others will need several sessions of 90 minutes each to see results. We prefer to treat both the face and neck to create a more unified appearance. Since this treatment is non-invasive, patients can return to their usual routine after their appointment. In most instances, results become apparent after two to three months
Some mild redness may be present after your session but this can be covered up with makeup. In some instances, there may also be some minor flaking as the skin starts to heal.
Venus Legacy uses multipolar radiofrequency and pulsed electromagnetic fields to tighten loose skin and boost collagen production. The result is a tighter, more contoured appearance.
Once the applicator is applied to the skin, you will feel the temperature gradually increase. This temperature will be maintained throughout the treatment unless it becomes uncomfortable. Along with heating the underlying tissues of the skin, the applicator also gently suctions the skin. Each treatment lasts about 60 minutes and multiple sessions will be required to achieve results.
Treatments are safe for all skin tones and are both safe and comfortable. No downtime is required, which means patients can return to their usual routine directly afterwards. Results will become visible over the course of three to four months.
