Skin tightening

More effective than cosmetics!

Over time, the texture of our skin changes due to a variety of physiological processes. As we age, the production of collagen and elastin in our skin decreases.

However, these proteins are crucial for the firmness, elasticity and smoothness of the skin. If their breakdown predominates, this leads to a loss of skin firmness and firmness, which in turn leads to the formation of wrinkles and sagging skin. Light (UV rays) and excessive exposure to the sun also damage the skin over the years – especially on the face.

Individual predisposition also contributes to the fact that the skin can become uneven, wrinkled or blotchy. The good news is that we can stop these processes with simple means, slow them down and even do something to make your skin better, healthier and, above all, smoother and firmer again.

How do you look better naturally?

A fresh, radiant look can be achieved in different ways. With various methods of aesthetic medicine, we can now help every patient to look better because the skin on the face immediately looks firmer and healthier after treatment. However, the multitude of anti-ageing products on offer overwhelms many people. That is why we at SK Ästhetics advise you to take advantage of a personal consultation to achieve the best possible result. A holistic facial treatment – or as we say a full face treatment – consists of many small elements and is individually composed, just as every skin, every skin type has its own individual characteristics.

  • smooth skin
  • Skin tightening
  • Less wrinkles
  • Scar smoothing
  • Anti-aging
  • radiant appearance
  • Facial rejuvenation
  • Lip wrinkles
  • Holistic facial treatment


How satisfied are our patients with the results?

For most of my patients, it’s about looking better, healthier and fresher.

Many people are concerned about the condition of their skin, some have discoloration or pigmentation problems that bother them. Of course, too many wrinkles or thin, translucent skin are also perceived as a burden. I can provide a remedy here, paving the way for my patients to achieve a much greater sense of well-being, satisfaction and a feeling of happiness that they have often not known for a long time when they look in the mirror in the morning.

Which skin tightening treatment is most effective?

The effectiveness of a facial treatment for skin tightening can vary from person to person, depending on individual skin type, the extent of skin ageing and many other factors. The aesthetic facial treatments that we offer at SK Ästhetiks in our practice in Rapperswil-Jona on Lake Zurich are tried and tested and safe to use.

An individual consultation is the basis for selecting the right and therefore effective methods. Good skin care is the basis for a lasting effect of any therapy, as is simple sun protection. In addition, there are numerous possible combinations of different treatments, which we summarize under Full Face Treatment. Bio-stimulants, botulinum, hyaluronic fillers, skin boosters, laser therapies and much more can be used.

We will be happy to advise you and work with you to find the right, effective way for your skin tightening and facial rejuvenation.

What are the risks or side effects of tightening the facial skin?

Reddening of the affected areas of the face can occur with any form of skin treatment. Slight swelling can and is countered by using cooling pads, cooling face masks or a cooling cream.

If the substances and equipment are used properly and modern technology is used, skin treatment with a laser device such as Picco Laser is also safe. The Picco laser, for example, is also used to remove tattoos.

My advice

The lack of smoothness of the skin with age is the result of a combination of natural physiological processes, environmental factors and genetic influences.

From my point of view as a doctor, it is very easy to improve the health and texture of your own skin with a targeted combination of injectables and various lasers: daily sun protection in the morning and a skin-renewing cream with retinol or fruit acids in the evening are the optimal basis for healthy, radiant skin – even with more extensive skin tightening treatments.

FAQs – Frequently asked questions

Less is often more – also in the case of the skin. It is important to apply a good sunscreen with a high sun protection factor in the morning as a base, even under make-up. In the evening, after cleansing your face, apply a skin-renewing cream with retinol or fruit acid.

You can’t say that like that. Often, the fewer additives such as fragrances, emulsifiers or preservatives in a cream, the better it is tolerated. I recommend two creams to my patients: an oil-free sun cream for the day and a night cream with retinol or fruit acids for the evening. With a few exceptions, this recommendation is valid for almost all of my patients

How often a laser treatment for skin tightening should be repeated depends on the type of laser therapy, the condition of the skin and any previous damage to the skin. As a rule, many non-invasive laser treatments are carried out three times at intervals of 3-6 weeks. However, there are also invasive treatments that are only repeated after one to three years.

The most important thing is a good sunscreen with a high sun protection factor – even in winter. Apply sunscreen every morning, with or under your favorite cream, for the rest of your life – this is the best prerequisite and ideal prevention for beautiful and healthy facial skin.
