Innovative Options to Lift and Tighten Ageing Skin

Alternative facelift treatment combinations that can give almost surgical results!


As we age, gravity takes its toll on our skin. Creases, sagging, and loose skin can make us look older, tired, and just plain “deflated.” While a full facelift was once the only option, new advanced skin tightening treatments offer dramatic improvements without surgery. From stimulating collagen to tightening lax tissues, today’s state-of-the-art therapies can take years off your appearance.

Turn Back the Clock with Injectables

Injectable skin tighteners offer a minimally invasive approach to lift and tone. These injectables work below the skin’s surface to renew foundation and structure:

Collagen Biostimulators & Hybrid Dermal fillers


    • Calcium: Radiesse
    • Hybrids: HarmonyCa, Lesnina, JuveLOOK
    • Meso products: Neauvia, Gouri


    • Early skin laxity 30 and above.
    • Forming fat pads and gravity related changes
    • Recommended: 1-3 times a year in combination with fractional ablative laser treatments or peels for superficial skin rejuvenation
    • Collagen Stimulators – Sculptra, Lanluma and other poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) injections spur new collagen growth under the skin for gradual tightening over time. Results continue to improve over months. Excellent for mild to moderate laxity and prevention.
    • Hybrid Fillers – Advanced “hybrids” like HarmonyCa, Lensina and JuveLook subtly volumize while prompting collagen. Immediate lifting with continued tightening over several months.
    • Meso Products like Gouri – The first completely soluble collagen-stimulating injectable. Brightens, smoothes skin texture, and strengthens elasticity from the inside out.

    The main difference from existing products like profhilo or HA skin boosters, is that Gouri encourages the skin to produce collagen rather than to attract water like HA products, hence the skin becomes tighter, bouncier and firmer without extra puffiness.

    Threads Create a Lift

    Dissolvable mesh threads act as tiny hammocks under the skin to lift sagging tissues. Over time, new collagen forms around the threads for longer-lasting contouring and tightening. Results emerge gradually without altering the face.


      • Aptos threads
      • MINT
      • PDO COGS
      • PCL/PLLA threads


      • Tissue repositioning without volumetric effects
      • Can be alternative to dermal fillers
      • Skin tightening and armouring effects

    Threads are excellent quality, re-absorbable and fine. The high-quality material ensures almost 0 complication and excellent results that develop over the time.

    Threads excel at:

      • Lifting loose or sagging areas – jowls, neck, brows
      • Natural-looking midface contouring
      • Replacing volume lost with age
      • Overall skin regeneration

    Heal and Tighten with Energy

    Energy-based skin tightening heats the deeper skin layers to stimulate tightening and skin renewal. Popular options include:

      • RF Microneedling – Fine needles puncture the skin so radiofrequency can heat tissues below. Triggers exceptional new collagen growth for tighter, renewed skin. Dramatic improvement in texture and firmness. Minimal downtime.
      • HIFU – Focused ultrasound energy targets and heats sagging skin at precise depths – from surface wrinkles to deep muscle layers. Promotes exceptional collagen regeneration for gradual tightening and lifting without surgery. Safe for all skin tones and types.

    Fractional Radio Frequency Micro needling

    The technique combines the best of micro needling and RF energy  – both techniques have been proven to tighten and rejuvenate skin, improve scarring, stretch marks and fine lines.

    How does it work?

    Secret PRO by Cutera uses fine gold platelet needles or pins create tiny punctures in the top layer of the skin, which triggers the body to create new collagen and elastin.

    The RF energy heats the underlying layers of skin, causing constriction and tightening of the skin, as well as the stimulation of collagen and elastin production. Because the RF energy is delivered so deeply, it can produce faster results that are more dramatic.

    Results visible after single treatment:

      • improved skin texture and firmness
      • light resurfacing
      • especially effective for early signs of creepy skin under eyes and neck
      • prevention of jowls
      • fine lines under eyes and wrinkles
      • acne and surgical scars
      • body: loose skin around knees, arms, stretch marks

    Combination treatments with PROFILHO or PRP adds extra benefits for skin remodelling and renewal. Check out our packages: Aestha Ltd app.

    Downtime is limited to 24 hours and suitable for all skin types.

      Our recommended counter LAXITY protocol

      1. One session of Sculptra or Lanluma

      2. Targeted Thread application if targeted tightening or lift required

      4 weeks later

      3. Ultraformer 3 or Secret RF  – SINGLE session (for advanced ageing signs – 2-3 sessions spread every 4-6 weeks)

      4 weeks later

      4. Review results and add GOURI for skin glow and superficial elasticity enhancement.

      This can be repeated every 4 weeks up to 3 sessions.

      The protocol reverses first ageing signs and especially is especially useful post pregnancy,  during, around or post menopause, when skin is affected by hormone fluctuations.
