How The treatment Works
Everyone needs Laser Skin Tightening treatments to prevent collagen loss and/or to rebuild collagen and tighten skin on your face or body areas.
There are many treatments we offer for skin tightening that are non-invasive and require minimal to no downtime!
Based on your age and skin condition, a customized treatment plan is designed to maximize your results. We have several devices for skin tightening procedures including Microneedling with Exosomes, Exilis Ultra, Scarlet RF Microneedling, Ematrix and Morpheus8 radio-frequency.
These devices are ideal solutions to restore and/or prevent skin aging by rebuilding collagen levels from the deep skin layer to the top layers.
With our treatment protocol, we can target various depths of skin in order to maximize collagen stimulation at each level.
Redensification of the skin layers is paramount in rebuilding the foundation of deep skin layers. This process, in turn, creates a natural looking tightening effect that provides results that gets better with time. Rebuilding the foundation of your skin from the bottom up creates tighter skin over the long term.
- Laser Skin Tightening is an ideal solutions for any face or body area with lax, crinkly, or loose skin
- RF Microneedling with Scarlet RF or Morpheus8 provide deep new collagen formation by placing energy into the bottom layers of the skin and pushing radiofrequency from lower layers and upward to several skin layers.
- Exilis Ultra has two built in technologies: Radiofrequency and Ultrasound technology which maximizes bulk surface energy for the top skin layers.
- Oftentimes a combined technology protocol using both devices provides the ultimate results for laser skin tightening
Types of Laser Skin Tightening Devices
RF Microneedling with ScarletRF or Morpheus8
RF Microneedling provides deep collagen stimulation by placing RF energy into the bottom layers of the skin and pushes radio-frequency waves upward through several layers of skin.
The radio-frequency laser energy is delivered into the skin with a cluster of thin micro needles. Unlike other microneedling devices, ScarletRF has a unique feature which allows the energy to travel in a vertical line from deeper skin layers to upper skin layers- with other RF devices the energy travels horizontally thereby missing upper skin layers. With ScarletRF energy is released at the correct level to stimulate dormant collagen. This triggers collagen growth thereby plumping, firming and tightening skin.
For RF Microneedling with ScarletRF or Morpheus8 skin tightening, we recommend 3-5 sessions (based on skin severity) approximately 1 month apart.
For microneedling treatments a numbing cream is applied prior to treatment so there is minor discomfort. Some slight puffiness and redness may exist for up to 24 hours, but many people still go out to dinner that night.
If you’re in the 40+ age group, we recommend the Scarlet RF laser featuring the “Na Effect” or Morpheus8 to deliver maximum radio frequency energy into the skin layers in order to maximize collagen and elastin production for this age group.
Exilis Ultra Collagen Laser Facial
No Downtime: Ideal for Fine Lines, Wrinkles and Laxity
Exilis Ultra is unique as it not only has radio-frequency technology, but it also has ultrasound technology combined into one energy.
This energy is driven from the top skin layers into lower skin layers and provides bulk surface heating in order to maximum energy and collagen stimulation at various skin levels from the top down.
Exilis Ultra is an ideal Laser Facial treatment if you are in the 28-40 age group and want to maintain skin tightness and collagen levels.
Exilis for laser skin tightening has no discomfort and no down time, making this an easy treatment to retain collagen levels.
Treatable Areas for Skin Tightening
Skin Tightening with radio frequency technology can treat most any face or body area. These deep penetrating laser works to stimulate dormant collagen deep in the dermal layer. You need this in order to formulate new collagen growth which then plumps and tightens skin. It can be used to treat:
- Full Face
Frequently Asked Questions about Exilis Ultra
Exilis Ultra uses both ultrasound and radio frequency energy. This combination promotes collagen production which results in a tighter, smoother look and feel.
For skin tightening or cellulite reduction, we recommend 4-6 sessions for mild to moderate skin laxity. Sessions should be spaced 7-14 days apart.
It feels like a heated massage. We constantly monitor the temperature and adjust as needed. Redness from heat usually subsides in a few hours.
Exilis Ultra does have the capability to melt fat if we choose the correct settings for fat reduction.
Yes, Exilis can improve the visual effect of cellulite. Learn more about cellulite reduction on our page about Cellulite.
Yes, Exilis is an FDA approved device.
Exilis is used for skin tightening and cellulite reduction in any area of the face or body.
Exilis Elite has both RF and Ultrasound.
Exilis Ultra is Radio Frequency + Ultrasound + a Vaginal Rejuvenation Option.
Exilis has precise heating and integrated cooling with real time monitoring of skin temperature. It has been approved by the FDA.
No. You can resume normal activities almost immediately.
Results can last 12-18 months – although we do suggest maintenance treatments once every 6 months.
We suggest adding a RF Microneedling treatment as the microneedles assist in releasing the band density and allowing for a smoother skin appearance.
How many skin tightening treatments will I need?
28-35 years old
An Exilis laser facial is an ideal preventative treatment to maintain maximum collagen production. Do it every 3-4 months.
35-40+ age group
You will need a series of 4-6+ sessions spaced 1-2 weeks apart to restore collagen levels. Fine lines and wrinkles will soften and your skin will tighten again giving you a more youthful looking you! Adding an RF Microneedling treatment would also be beneficial.
50+ age group
Deeper rebuilding of collagen fibers is necessary to re-firm the skins foundation. Check out RF Microneedling!
