Why have a skin tightening treatment with Face Matters?

If you choose to have a skin tightening treatment at Face Matters, it will be administered by Dr. Gabi Tschoepe, who has extensive knowledge of head and neck anatomy and physiology, together with training and more than 20 years’ experience in the use of medical aesthetic treatments that can subtly enhance your appearance to make you look younger.
The Face Matters clinic is registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and we are passionate about upholding the highest standards of care in the hands of qualified, experienced medical professionals.
Thread lifts and micro-needling each have a proven safety record and are highly effective skin tightening treatments. It’s important to recognise that these treatments cannot create the same degree of skin tightening and lift as a surgical facelift; the results are more subtle but also far less invasive and with shorter recovery times.
See how skin tightening with thread lifts or micro-needling has helped some of our recent patients to recapture a stunning, youthful appearance.
Your treatment options
Thread lifts have low invasiveness, minimal complications, minimal discomfort, and immediate effect. With a thread lift treatment, we are able to create lift by using a special thread weave and polydioxanone (PDO), which has properties that stimulate the synthesis of collagen and elastin. PDO is a strong synthetic fibre consisting of one (monofilament) or two twisted solid fibre (mono spiral, double spiral HOOKS) threads, which dissolve in the tissue after approximately six to eight months.
Thread lifts are ideal for skin rejuvenation, smoothing wrinkles, narrowing your pores, skin tightening, increasing your skin volume, and lifting your skin.
Micro-needling is when we use a hand-held medical device to create thousands of micro-medical needle columns in your skin. Each column will penetrate into the dermis of the skin and will be approximately 0.1mm in width. The columns will close rapidly causing the skin to recover quickly – often in the same day – but will be significant enough to trigger your body’s natural healing response and stimulate new collagen, fresh skin cells and enhanced blood supply.
Although it can take up to six weeks for the results of a micro-needling treatment to be fully appreciated, you will be left with a natural and long-lasting enhancement that not only tightens your skin but also gives your skin tone and texture a fantastic boost.
Micro-needling with mesotherapy
We can also combine your micro-needling treatment with mesotherapy to introduce a solution of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, conventional medications, and homeopathic preparations to promote your body’s circulatory, lymphatic and immune systems to create an anti-ageing biological response.
