Last week we introduced EMSculpt; our latest non-surgical body contouring treatment. This week Dr Sophie Shotter explains why she is so excited about this innovative treatment.
Tight + Bright is designed for patients aged 30-50 who would like some degree of skin tightening without resorting to more advanced anti-ageing treatments. This non-invasive procedure is available exclusively at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic.
Our medical team developed Tight + Bright in response to demand from younger patients keen to address the early signs of ageing – especially 30-something professionals looking to ‘stay ahead of the game’ in maintaining a youthful complexion.
Tight + Bright tightens, smoothes and contours your skin while improving texture, tone and luminosity.
*DISCLAIMER Patient experience and results may vary. These are dependent on a number of factors such as lifestyle, age and medical history.
Tight + Bright is an anti-ageing, skin improvement treatment. It was specially developed at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic in response to patients requesting a treatment that fell somewhere between a light laser treatment and a skin tightening procedure.
Tight + Bright is a uniquely customised procedure created to meet the needs of each individual patient, providing long-lasting natural results.
The treatment combines Thermage® radiofrequency skin tightening with Clear + Brilliant® gentle laser skin resurfacing for skin rejuvenation. Tight + Bright stimulates the renewal of collagen and improves skin laxity, while restoring radiance and reducing pore size at the same time. It reveals visibly brighter and tighter looking skin.
Although the majority of our patients having Tight + Bright are aged 30-50, we have also achieved great results with more mature patients.
Treatable areas include the face, neck and décolletage. Tight + Bright is ideal for:
You will notice the Clear + Brilliant results immediately, while the results of Thermage are progressive and will continue collagen stimulation for up to 7 months post-treatment.
Your medical practitioner will give you all the advice you need.
The treatment begins with a mini Thermage radiofrequency treatment for overall skin tightening, collagen stimulation, smoothing, tightening and contouring. Your skin is then prepared for laser treatment with anaesthetic cream.
The Clear + Brilliant gentle laser resurfacing treatment is then applied to the face and neck, lifting dead and ageing skin cells to reveal younger fresher and plumper skin cells and improve texture, luminosity and reduction in the appearance of pores. We then use a bespoke combination of peptides, retinols, and anti-oxidant serums – specifically Vitamin C serum – to enhance results. The exact choice of products used will depend on your age and skin quality.
We will explain everything in detail and make you feel at ease and relaxed on the day of your treatment, knowing you’re in safe, expert and medically qualified hands.
This skin tightening treatment is safe and highly effective.
There is very little or no downtime. You can usually return to normal activities immediately following the procedure.
The Clear + Brilliant laser will leave your skin looking red for 24 hours. This will fade to a pink hue the next day before returning to normal. On day three, your skin may feel a little rough, like an emery board, but will be completely smooth by day four.
Many people find their procedure at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic more comfortable than expected. The anaesthetic Emla cream will reduce any possible discomfort.
Some patients say they feel a hot tingling during the Clear + Brilliant laser treatment. Immediately after, you may experience some redness and mild swelling but this usually goes away within 12 hours. Some people experience itchiness or skin sensitivity during the following days but this is a positive sign of the natural renewal process and will eventually go away.
Each time the Thermage treatment device touches your skin, you will feel a brief cooling sensation, followed by a deep but brief heating sensation, followed by another cooling sensation. The heating sensation is a positive sign that the deep layers of your skin are reaching effective temperatures for tightening, while the cooling sensation protects the surface of your skin.
Tight + Bright is also ideal for use with other treatments available at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic, such as injectable fillers and BOTOX®, to maximise your youthful look. We will provide all the advice you need at your consultation.
Tight + Bright is a popular option for skin tightening and skin brightening for both men and women. We provide a discreet service for all our patients.
