The growing demand for facial skin tightening
Facial skin tightening is something almost every adult wants. In the times we live in, where “Fifty is the New Thirty”, there is a huge thirst to look as young and healthy as possible. The aesthetic industry is thriving and constantly delivering new technologies and treatments to meet the growing demand. According to The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, in 2017, 82,410 facelifts were performed, making it the 6th most popular surgical procedure. In addition, 722,394 Hyaluronic Acid (volume enhancing) treatments were carried out, making them the second most popular non-invasive procedure. As longevity is expected to increase, so too will the desire of individuals to look their very best, regardless of their biological age.
What causes our facial skin to sag?
With age, our skin naturally sags. There are a few elements that contribute to this. Firstly, there is a significant decrease in the amount of collagen and elastin proteins that the body produces. These proteins are the building blocks of the skin and help it maintain its firmness and elasticity. Once their levels drop, the skin can no longer maintain its structure and it begins to sag. As can be seen in the graph below, the amounts of collagen and elastin (see red line) dramatically decrease after the age of 30.
In addition to the natural aging process of the skin, our lifestyle choices often cause our skin to age prematurely. Exposure to the sun’s damaging rays dramatically ages the skin. According to a report issued by the World Health Organization called Sun Protection: A Primary Teaching Resource, “Chronic overexposure to the sun can change the texture and weaken the elasticity of the skin. Sun induced skin damage causes premature wrinkling, sags and bags, and easy bruising. Up to 90% of the visible changes commonly attributed to ageing may be caused by sun exposure.” Other factors that age the skin include exposure to pollution, cigarette smoke, excessive alcohol consumption, unhealthy eating habits, stress etc.
While this may all seem discouraging, the good news is facial skin tightening has never been easier!

Skin Nourishment: The skin is infused the purest level of vitamin C, as well as vitamin E and Hyaluronic acid. Vitamin C has been proven to help the skin produce new collagen and elastin and thus the skin is able to repair itself by creating new and healthy tissue. As a result, the skin becomes tighter and firmer and there is a marked reduction in wrinkles and fine lines.
Skin Oxygenation: In order to ensure the optimal penetration of the nutrients into the skin, the NowMi treatment stimulates a natural effect called the ‘Bohr effect’. It does so by creating a C02 rich environment on the skin’s surface. In response, the body sends oxygen rich blood cells to the treatment area. This results in an oxygen facial from ‘within the skin’ which enables the cells to best absorb the nutrients.
Skin Protection: Vitamins C and E are powerful antioxidants that help the skin protect itself against harmful UV rays and other extrinsic factors that damage it. By replenishing the skin’s lost supply of these vitamins, the body is able to effectively ward off free-radicals which significantly age the skin.
