How The treatment Works
Skin Tightening Treatment Options
Let’s face it. At some point, everyone needs to firm loose skin.
Do you know you start to loose collagen and elastin in as early as your late 20’s? This is when the first signs of skin aging becomes noticeable.
You can’t stop aging, but we have options that can slow down skin laxity and help rebuild collagen and elastin on your face or body areas.
We offer many technologies and treatments to help lift and tone loose skin.
Based on your age and skin condition, a customized treatment plan is designed to maximize your results. Most of our options have minimal to no downtime.
The goal of skin tightening procedures is to boost collagen and elastin production. Our treatment options could include:
Minimal to No Downtime Treatments
- Microneedling with Exosomes -Regenerates skin a cell level
- Exilis Ultra Ultrasound and Radio Frequency
- Ematrix – Radiofrequency
Minimal to a Few Days Downtime Treatments
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.
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 ScarletRF 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.
- AgnesRF tightens your skin, but can also lift and contour.
- Oftentimes a combined technology protocol using both devices provides the ultimate results for laser skin tightening
RF Microneedling with ScarletRF or Morpheus8
RF Microneedling provides deep collagen stimulation by placing RF energy starting in the bottom layers of the skin and works it way upward to the top layers of your 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 most other RF devices, the energy travels horizontally thereby missing upper skin layers.
Radiofrequency energy is released at the correct level to stimulate dormant collagen. This triggers collagen growth thereby plumping, firming and tightening skin. Besides tightening your skin, RF Microneedling also helps with pores, texture and evening skin tone.
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 optimize results and 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 without any downt
Exilis collagen induction skin tightening has no discomfort, making this an easy treatment to retain collagen levels.
What is the newest skin tightening procedure?
Ask us about our combination protocol of Morpheus8 or ScarletRF in combination with exosomes, peptides or bio-revitilization serums.
By rebuilding the cellular structure with serum products, the RF energy results are enhanced.
Combining radiofrequency energy with microneedling technology maximizes the most energy possible at deeper layers of your skin.
By adding advanced bio-stimulating serums post a RF Microneedling treatment provides the most growth factors and nutrients to the cell level. Stronger, more connected cells will result in a better response to laser energy results. A definite must have.
These deep penetrating laser works to stimulate dormant collagen in the dermal layer.
If you want tight, lifted looking skin, you need to keep maximize collagen and elastin levels stimulated to grow.
Most common areas for skin tightening include:
- Full Face
