Different skin tightening procedures
As you get older, skin laxity is a common problem that many people face. Fortunately, there are several treatments available to help tighten the skin and reduce wrinkles. At our clinic in Hale we pride to offer the most advance and effective skin tightening procedures from minimal invasive treatments to more advance and moderate invasive surgical procedures. Our Skin tightening procedure includes Renuvion – J Plasma, FaceTite, NeckTite and Bodytite , Morpheus8 and Exilis 360 Ultra – each device delivering energy differently and reaching different layers of the skin.
Radiofrequency energy for skin tightening
Radiofrequency energy is one of the most popular methods used in skin tightening treatments. It works by generating heat within the targeted area to encourage collagen production resulting in improved elasticity and tighter-looking skin. Radiofrequency has revolutionized soft tissue contraction, with over twenty years of research proving its effectiveness. Recent advances in radiofrequency delivery methods have allowed for more precise and efficient application according to the needs at hand – from monopolar, bipolar or multipolar techniques to fractional solutions such as Renuvion.
Renuvion – How it works
Renuvion is recently FDA approved device – an RF system with fractionally delivered energy to quickly heat stromal collagen up to 85°C resulting in 40-50% fiber length reduction while restoring adipose framework firmness for better shape enhancement. The safety of the device is optimized due to the fact that skin temperature rarely exceeds 38°C. Renuvion works by using two separate devices to deliver RF energy – first heating up collagen fibers under the surface of your skin then cooling them down with a cooling solution/plasma energy. The utilization of plasma energy driven by helium is a novel and favourable means of accomplishing non-excisional skin and soft tissue tightening. Within mere fractions of a second, the device heats subcutaneous collagen, leading to robust and rapid contraction. The results are quite noticeable as early as 24 hours after the treatment. Moreover, as new collagen infiltrates the adipose stroma, the outcomes can continue to improve over the course of a year. This treatment can reduce fat deposits and tighten sagging or loose skin in areas such as the abdomen, arms, chin, neck and thighs.Learn More About Renuvion - J Plasma
VASER LIPOSUCTION + RENUVION
FaceTite, NeckTite and BodyTite
FaceTite, NeckTite and BodyTite are other options which are similar to Renuvion but have some advantages like being able to reach deeper into tissues than other devices on the market. This helps it target more stubborn pockets of fat while also providing tighter results on delicate areas like around eyes.
The procedure involves radiofrequency (RF) energy to tighten and contour the skin and subdermal tissue. The RF energy is delivered to the targeted area through a small probe that is inserted into the subcutaneous tissue layer. The device is equipped with internal and external electrodes that deliver a controlled and precise amount of energy to the treatment area, causing the skin to contract and tighten.
These procedures are highly effective in treating a variety of concerns, including loose or sagging skin, excess fat deposits, and uneven contours.Learn More About FaceTite
FACETITE - SKIN TIGHTENING
Morpheus 8 is a state-of-the-art fractional radiofrequency (RF) microneedling device that is designed to treat a wide range of skin concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks, and uneven skin texture. This innovative treatment combines the benefits of microneedling with the skin-tightening effects of radiofrequency energy to stimulate collagen production and rejuvenate the skin. Morpheus 8 is highly customizable, allowing doctors to adjust the depth of the needles and the amount of energy delivered to the treatment area for optimal results. The procedure requires minimal downtime, making it a good and less invasive option for patients looking to improve the appearance of their skin.Learn More About Morpheus8
Exilis Ultra 360
Exilis Ultra 360 is a non-invasive skin tightening and body contouring device that utilizes a handpiece to deliver a combination of radiofrequency (RF) energy and ultrasound technology, as well as cooling, to targeted areas with more effective results than traditional methods alone can provide. The deep-penetrating heat energy generates a warm sensation, while the cooling mechanism protects the skin during the procedure. Patients often describe the experience like to a pain-free hot stone massage, and can expect to be comfortable while lying down for 30-60 minutes depending on the size and areas of the treatment. Clinical studies have demonstrated the safety and effectiveness of Exilis Ultra 360, which has been cleared by the FDA in the U.S. for use in non-invasive wrinkle and rhytid treatment.
Conclution: Which is the best skin tightening procedure?
Conclusion: The increasing demand for non-invasive skin tightening procedures has been fuelled by a desire to reduce risk, scarring, and recovery time compared to traditional excisional procedures like dermolipectomy (e.g. Tummy tucks, facelift /neck lift, brachioplasty etc) . With numerous options available, including Radiofrequency, Ultrasound, Laser, microneedling, patients may feel overwhelmed when deciding which treatment to choose. Seeking advice from an experienced aesthetic specialist is crucial in determining the most appropriate course of action based on individual needs. A skilled provider can provide detailed information about each procedure and device, as well as the unique benefits and limitations of each. Ultimately, a tailored treatment plan can be developed to achieve optimal results for each patient. By selecting the right treatment, patients can achieve their desired outcome while minimizing risk, discomfort, and downtime.
