Skin tightening can sometimes be the hardest to treat. There are so many reasons why are skin starts to appear "loose" - certainly gravity is a factor, but we are loosing healthy collagen and elasticity of the skin. And we are also slowly losing bone structure, muscle tone and the "natural" fat pads that give our face structure. So, to "tighten" the skin may mean looking at more than one treatment.
But if we need to simply improve collagen and elasticity, then these treatments are a great option!
We have 2 options, both of them use radiofrequency-heat energy, to stimulate healthy collagen. These treatments will need a total of 3-6 treatments to achieve the best results, and touch ups (1 treatment) will need to be done 1-3 times yearly, depending on the severity of the skin "looseness". Depending on the treatment, there is minimal downtime. Because these treatments stimulate YOUR body to make healthy collagen and elastin, it can take 2-3 months before we see the full results.
Forma - Feels like a warm massage to the area we are treating. We also use this treatment just before a special event, to give you immediate lift.
Fractora - This is radiofrequency and medical needling, to give a deeper and more intense improvement to skin tightness as well as skin texture and color.
We love these treatments for our patients and are excited to offer them to you.
