Tightening Treatments

Your skin that was formerly very tight but now is thin and it also began to look looser. Your skin looks wavier depending on the ambient light, and is felt softer when touched. The guilty is the decreasing level of collagen, and this is the natural aging process; however, your face and body are no longer tense, hard and tight, as in the past. If intensive sags have not occurred in your skin, a moderate tightening method will be adequate for you.
The number of non-surgical tightening technologies increases with each passing day. Skin tightening devices use radio-frequency or ultrasound energy, infrared light or directly heat for tightening the skin from the inside out. Such machines try to tighten the existing collagen and increase the production of new collagen by applying heat just under the skin tissue. As new collagen develops the skin gets tighter. Using the combinations of certain procedures such as Thermage, Ulthera, ClearLift, VelaShape, Accet Ultra VShape in a conscious manner gives really favorable results.

Radiofrequency technology uses heat and energy
These treatments use non-ablative radio frequency energy (electric and magnetic energy combined with radio waves), and send it with short pulses to the skin and deliver the heat up to the dermis (the lower layer of the skin) without damaging the epidermis (top layer of the skin). The heat can be adjusted in such a way as to affect the deeper layers.

Thermage, the face, eyes, and body
I find this procedure extremely useful not only for the face but also for the body. The length of a session is 45 minutes especially for the abdomen, buttocks and upper arms but can be increased up to one and a half hour for the rest of the body.

Ulthera uses a focused ultrasound technology
As different from the ultrasound device used during pregnancy, this machine benefits from the ultrasound power for tightening the loose skin. It sends energy to the lower layers of the skin for increasing the production of collagen that enables the face and neck skins to look tighter. The results do not appear immediately, and the effect can be seen as the muscle begins to contract in the course of time (two to six months).

Body tightening with VelaShape 3
Regions coated with cellulite, and bagels developing around the abdomen, waist, and arms are treated. It is similar to a hot tissue massage. 4 to 6 sessions are performed ones a week and each session takes 20 to 60 minutes, depending on the application site. It is a number of therapies that reduce the appearance of cellulite to a noticeable extent, and enable the treated region to look tighter.

Accet Ultra full body
In one of the recent studies, it was reported that Accet Ultra Radio Frequency intended for body tightening also reduces cellulite while slimming areas around the legs. It is currently used informally for its cellulite reducing effect because this device has been approved by the FDA for only its anti-wrinkle properties. Physicians state that significant progresses were made in a course of treatment consisting of six sessions. Patients report that they feel like they have a massage with a warm stone during therapy.
