A common side effect of ageing is loose, sagging skin, caused by the depletion of collagen and elastin in the dermis. Environmental factors such as sun damage and smoking can further decrease levels.
Previously, the only solution to loose, sagging skin was a surgical intervention, but at Timeless Skin, based in the centre of London, we delighted to offer a revolutionary Skin Tightening treatment in the form of Soprano ICE.
Am I suitable for a Skin Tightening treatment?
Skin Tightening with the Soprano ICE is best suited for patients that are seeing the early signs of skin laxity, so will have mild to moderate loose skin; for those patients with more extensive sagging in the facial tissues a surgical procedure may be necessary.
The Soprano ICE can be used on any skin type and as is it is non-invasive it is suitable for most patients that are fit and well. It can be used safely on both the face and body..
What does a Skin Tightening treatment entail?
The Soprano ICE is the leading laser hair removal device on the market but it also has the further benefit of offering Near-Infrared (NIR) Skin Tightening.
Infrared light is safely delivered deep into the tissue, heating up the dermis which causes existing collagen fibres to tighten and contract. Furthermore, new collagen is stimulated so the skin tightening effects continue to improve over time.
First, your Timeless Skin practitioner will apply a cold gel to prepare the treatment area. Then the device is passed over the treatment area, delivering pulses of light into the dermis. The majority of our London Skin Tightening patients describe this treatment as comfortable. We apply a cold compress immediately after your treatment to lessen any possible discomfort.
There is no damage to the overlying skin and patients can resume normal activities immediately after their treatment.
What are the benefits of a skin tightening treatment?
- Can tighten up loose skin on any area of the face, neck and body
- An effective alternative to surgery
- Can improve the quality of crêpey skin on the décolletage or back of the hands which are usually very difficult to treat
- Reduces the appearances of jowls which is a common sign of ageing
- Virtually pain-free

What results can I expect from a Skin Tightening treatment?
For more youthful, tighter skin, without the downsides of surgery, Skin Tightening with the Soprano ICE is capable of delivering fantastic results. You will see immediate skin tightening, however the appearance of your skin will continue to improve over time as new collagen is produced.
