Beauty Buzz: How To Future-Proof Your Skin

The demand for skin tightening facials is on the rise but why do we need them and how do they benefit us exactly? Our skin is constantly exposed to pollution, harmful UV rays and free radicals which may cause dark spots, wrinkles, acne, blackheads, and pigmentation to develop. All these can speed up the early aging of your skin. If you want to retain your youthful and flawless look, you need to step up your skincare routine and consider treatments that are intended to keep your skin tight, healthy and younger-looking.

Facial treatments are readily available in La Belle Forme clinics, offering rejuvenating and beneficial effects for the skin. These treatments come in different varieties to accommodate various skincare needs and desired results. Skin tightening facials are steadily gaining popularity due to the availability of new and effective methods.

Most of the treatments offered at our clinics are non-invasive which involves the application of radio waves and infrared lights that penetrate deep into your skin and stimulate instantaneous skin tightening effects by sending a signal into the body that it should produce more collagen. Collagen is one of the amazing ingredients needed to keep your skin young and smooth.

You can make the most of the benefits that these treatments can provide to your skin by altering your diet into something healthier and richer in vegetables, particularly the green, leafy ones. Or you can combine the use of skin care products that can firm your skin and feed it with essential vitamins and nutrients such as Vitamin C, E, and antioxidants.

3 Of The Best Skin Tightening Treatments

Nowadays, achieving something faster is not impossible and that includes skin tightening. There are quick, non-invasive, safe, effective and affordable facial treatments for skin tightening that yield extraordinary results within a few sessions. Some of the options for skin tightening facial treatment that is gaining tremendous popularity among people due to their effectiveness:

  • Exilis Elite
  • Indiba


INTRAcel is an innovative and exceptional method of skin tightening that uses deep dermal radio frequency in a combination of micro-needing. In this procedure, the dermal layer of the skin is stimulated to generate a controlled micro-trauma, encouraging the production of new collagen and elastin—the essential proteins that ensure the tightness and firmness of the skin.

People with active acne outbreaks or are looking to remove acne scars can opt for this treatment. Apart from tightening the skin, it also offers other benefits such as reducing large pores, repairing damage to the skin and enhancing its tone and texture. It is recommended for people of all skin color or type.

A course of three treatments of INTRAcel every four to six weeks is required to see the results.

ULTRAcel is a relatively new treatment that targets the same layer lifted and tightened by Plastic Surgeons during a facelift. This works by employing radiofrequency and focused ultrasound altogether, to achieve a highly effective non-surgical lifting and tightening of the skin. In the UK, it is regarded as the most effective skin tightening treatment for anyone who desires to have a fresher looking skin.

The procedure is virtually pain-free, safe and can be finished in a couple of hours or faster. It is ideal for people who disapprove or are not prepared for surgery. Your doctor can provide you with a tailored INTRAcel or ULTRAcel treatment package that suits your skin.

Exilis Elite

If you have always wanted to keep your skin tight while reducing fat on your body or face, Exilis Elite may just be what you need. This revolutionary technology is approved by the FDA which means it is safe and effective.

It targets the deep layers of the tissue, stimulating the regeneration of collagen and the reduction of fat. Exilis Elite is non-invasive and without real downtime drastically improving your skin by reducing fat, wrinkles, and appearance of cellulite. This treatment is perfect for individuals that are between 25 and 70 years and is recommended for anyone who prefers a painless process of skin tightening.

During the treatment, the patient may experience slight redness of the skin but will return into its normal color after 30 minutes. After the procedure, you can go back into your day to day life as this treatment as no downtime.


Indiba is another non-invasive aesthetic procedure that helps keep the skin tight, smooth and contoured, temporarily minimizing the emergence of cellulite. This procedure involves increasing the tissue’s internal temperature. It works by stimulating the production of collagen and improving circulation. So if you are beginning to notice skin sagging, an appearance of fine lines and wrinkles or you are seeking to redefine your jaw, this treatment works best for you.

Indiba is a body and facial treatment that utilizes electrical heat and pulses to promote the production of collagen, the most essential skin protein which provides a firm, tight and youthful appearance to the skin. The heat penetrates into the deeper skin layers, creating a warm sensation while the exterior layer of the skin is cooled as the treatment occurs to prevent any damage.  The radio frequencies are intended to break subcutaneous fat pockets.

It is possible to use the treatment on both the body and face to taut the skin by stimulating the production of new collagen. The contraction of collagen is brought about by the heat penetrated into the tissue, encouraging the generation of new collagen that works in reducing wrinkles and fine lines while strengthening the skin and making it appear healthier, tighter and firmer.

The most notable benefits of Indiba include:

  • Anti-aging
  • Enhancing the appearance of eye contour and reducing under eye bags.
  • Keeping the expression lines and wrinkles at bay.
  • Redefining the shape of your face.
  • Keeping the neck firmer.
  • Promoting skin rejuvenation and overall wellness

It is hard to choose the right skin-tightening facial treatments for you, given the many choices that the market offers. It is important to look into vital factors such as effectiveness and safety of the procedure before giving it a try. The above-given options are most favored by people due to their ability to provide skin tightening without the pain and danger that other forms of treatment and surgeries are known to be associated with.
