The best non-surgical skin tightening treatments, Marylebone, London

The world of non-surgical cosmetic devices has gone through many changes over the years, and I’m always excited to see a new, promising device emerge on the market. So, it was great to see Shirley Ballas’ incredible result from the NeoGen Plasma treatment in the press recently. But what exactly is NeoGen Plasma Skin Tightening? And how does it compare to other non-surgical devices?

How does NeoGen Plasma skin tightening work?

NeoGen works by converting inert nitrogen gas into plasma energy. Those energy pulses are emitted via a handpiece, rapidly heating up the lower layer of the skin (the dermis). The heat creates controlled damage that triggers your body’s natural healing response, creating healthy new collagen and elastin that produces both immediate skin tightening and firmer skin over time.

Within a few days of treatment, skin regeneration begins, and the damaged epidermis sheds as the new upper layer of skin appears to replace the treated epidermis, helping to improve skin tone, texture, and firmness.

What does NeoGen Plasma treat?

The treatment can simultaneously address fine lines and wrinkles, skin laxity, uneven texture, and hyperpigmentation on the face, neck, chest, and hands. Your practitioner can bespoke your treatment settings for your skin concerns, goals, and downtime consideration, from painless, low-energy, minimal-downtime treatments to high-energy treatments that come with more downtime but yield more dramatic results.

How long do the results last?

Results can be seen immediately, but several treatments are recommended, depending on your concerns. Results last for up to a year, but top-up treatments are usually recommended every three to four months to maintain the results.

How does NeoGen compare to other non-surgical skin tightening devices?

There are so many devices that can provide really impactful results, but there is no one device that does everything. If I were to choose one that can give the most dramatic transformation, I’d pick the Profound RF, because we can use it to remodel the jawline and the lower face to provide a superior tightness after just one treatment. Profound RF combination of microneedling with radiofrequency energy to firm skin, reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and fade scars.

Ultra-thin needles deliver heat from the RF energy into the reticular dermis, the skin’s lower layer, to create controlled damage. This stimulates a natural healing response that reinvigorates the body’s natural production of hyaluronic acid, elastin, and collagen, the building blocks that keep skin taut and elastic.

What is right for you?

I think it’s really positive that we are seeing more in the media about the power of good non-surgical treatment protocols. But just be aware that there are many options available, and just because it’s worked for somebody else doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the best treatment for you. Instead of trying to work out what treatment you should have, start by seeing a medical practitioner who is experienced in non-surgical skin tightening and has various treatment options to offer, and get their opinion on what may be right for your unique concerns and treatment goals.
