How to Tighten Skin on Face Without Surgery
Have you noticed that your skin on your face and neck have lost their plumpness and firmness? Then you’re not alone! This is a very common concern as our skin matures, as our natural collagen and elastin levels fall. BUT, all is not lost! Below, I will share with you how to tighten skin on your face, neck and décolletage, without the need for surgery.
Why your skin loses firmness
Before we look at treatments, it’s important to understand what happens to your skin that results in loss of firmness. It’s a cruel, cruel trick by mother nature, if you ask me!
Our natural collagen levels decline from our early to mid twenties, yes, you read that right – in our twenties!
In addition to declining collagen levels, your skin also starts to lose it’s elasticity. Elastin fibres are damaged and broken down as we age, due to exposure to the sun, smoking, nutrition and lifestyle.
Are you crying into your coffee/wine reading this!? Then stop right now! Whilst I can’t stop the natural aging process, I can absolutely help to improve the quality of your skin and boost your skins natural collagen and elastin levels. Read on to find out more.
How to Tighten Skin on Face Without Surgery - 'Tweakments'
Radiofrequency treatments are perfect if you’re looking for more youthful and firmer looking and feeling skin. This treatment can be carried out on the face, neck and décolletage.
Radiofrequency is a relaxing (and warming) treatment, that involves gently heating the skin. This then stimulates your skins natural collagen production and causes the fibres to contract. The results are listed opposite, it’s an impressive check list!
A course of 6 treatments are recommended, spaced 2-4 weeks apart. These treatments have a cumulative effect, where you see the results continue to develop over the coming weeks and months.
The beauty of these treatments are that they are getting your skin to work really well. Consider this a gentle encouragement to get your skin to do what it was fabulous at in your early 20’s!
Sadly, we can’t stop the aging process, so whilst you will continue to see results in the weeks and months that follow your course of treatment, a 2-3 monthly maintenance is recommended.
Look after your skin from the inside out with diet & nutrition
In my opinion, ALL skincare treatment plans should include nutritional advice. It’s all very well treating the symptoms, but it’s important look after your skin from the inside out too.
We will look at your diet and identify simple changes that you can make to improve the quality of your skin and help you feel more energised and energetic.
As a Nutritional Therapist, I take a holistic approach when it comes to nutrition. We can explore simple changes you can make that you will be able to sustain for the long term.
Eating foods rich in vitamin C and essential fatty acids will work wonders for your skin. You’ll find more information in my blog in the link below. Ignore the fact that it’s about clearing acne – there’s some amazing information in there about looking after your skin – and a Cheat Sheet you can download too. Click HERE.
Like nutrition, your skin treatment plan will include advice on how to reduce stress, improve sleep and generally reduce inflammation in your system. Your lifestyle plays a huge part in the quality of your skin. Factors that fall into ‘lifestyle’ include where you live, where you work, your hobbies and activities, stress levels, sleep quality and the environment you’re in.
We will have a chat about different things that you can do, to help look after your skin in the long term. It’s all about simple, sustainable changes – so don’t worry, nothing drastic!
Looking after your skin from the outside in
Using gentle products that help to repair and strengthen your skin and improve your skin’s natural barrier function are key. The products and treatments that I recommend for you will depend on the results from your pre-consultation questions and your consultation.
I will take into account your skin type, skin conditions, lifestyle, health, diet & nutrition and also your skin goals.
I will make recommendations for your skincare products, which are simple & sustainable, with that luxury we all love and deserve. It’s important to me to provide a skincare range that is both reasonably priced and results driven, which is what I have found with Katherine Daniels Skincare and Cosmedix.
I also have a great ‘At Home Clinic’ kit, that contains medical grate products and a microneedling, which will help to boost your skin’s natural collagen levels as part of your weekly skincare routine.
How to Tighten Skin on Face WITHOUT Surgery
I hope that this blog has helped to give you an idea of how you can achieve firmer, tighter and more youthful looking skin, without the need for surgery. A combination of radiofrequency treatments, diet & nutrition, products & supplements and lifestyle are a powerful combination. Treating your skin from the outside in and inside out will leave your skin looking and feeling amazing, both in the shorter and long term. My goal is to help you feel confident in your skin, and to also know how to get the best from it long after you leave my clinic.

My goal is to help you to manage your skin, improve your well-being and energy levels, plus learn how to look after your skin for the long term, in a simple, sustainable way – with that little bit of luxury that we all deserve!
I know that sometimes the thought of making changes to our routines and lifestyle can be daunting, but I promise you there’s nothing radical here, it’s about helping you to create small, incremental changes for the long term. I have nearly 15 years experience as a coach, helping individuals to achieve their goals, so rest assured I will be there to help you through your transformation.
