Skin Tightening

Don’t Let Skin Sagging Betray Your Age

Today there are quick and non-invasive alternatives to plastic surgery. We utilize two of the most advanced technologies: Radio Frequency (RF) with Magnetic Pulses based Venus Freeze and near infrared (NIR) pulsed light based Alma Harmony XL.

These technologies are safe and painless, can improve mild to moderate fine lines and wrinkles, tighten loose, sagging skin on the face, neck, arms, abdomen and other areas where sagging skin is a problem. They are a good option for individuals in need of more limited lifting who are not ready for facelift, and for who have already had a facelift and need a little touch-up.

Venus Freeze is the most exciting skin tightening, wrinkle reduction and cellulite improvement available. Why?

Because Venus Freeze is safe, fast, painless and produces superior results.

How does it work?

Venus Freeze is a non-invasive treatment that combines radio frequency (RF) and magnetic pulses into a technology called (MP)2. This unique combination has the ability to access deeply, comfortable, and safely into the skin in order to achieve optimum results.

Skin tightening, wrinkle reduction and cellulite reduction occur because the Multi-Polar Radiofrequency and Magnetic Pulsed Fields (MP)2 causes a thermal reaction in the tissue which stimulates the body’s natural healing response. That restoring response causes new collagen to form, and the production of new elastin fibers.

The active collagen in the skin contracts, causing skin to look and feel firmer and the elastin fibers unravel making the skin appear more elastic.

(MP)2 improves blood flow in the treated area, enhancing overall skin condition.  Improving dermal circulation supplies more vitamins, minerals and oxygen to skin cells, simultaneously removing toxins and waste materials.

The number of treatments varies on the area being treated. We offer a series of treatments, usually six to eight, in one week intervals.

 

                         Skin Tightening (ST)

ST by Harmony XL skin tightening is non-invasive and works with the body to re-stimulate collagen production naturally making skin firmer and youthful.

How does it work?

ST (skin tightening) is the near infrared handpiece delivers uniform energy distribution and effectively targets lipids and connective tissue.  It exerts its biological effect on the skin through two major mechanisms, heat-induced collagen shrinkage and micro-thermal injury as well as dermal regeneration, repair (healing) and remodeling.

The ST handpiece produces dramatic, yet comfortable deep dermal heating without damage to the epidermis.

There is no pain associated with this procedure, although the area being treated may feel warm.  A slight pink coloration of the skin can appear but this will resolve within a few hours. Immediate firming is often visible and further improvements occurs over several weeks as new collagen production occurs.

An average of 4-6 treatments are recommended for optimal tissue tightening. There is no downtime and you can return to your normal activities immediately.

Skin Tightening procedure can be combined with Photofacial /IPL and Skin Resurfacing /Pixel/
