Skin Tightening

Skin Tightening

Introduction

As we age we lose volume in our face, primarily fat. As a result skin can hang down as gravity acts on it creating droopiness, wrinkles and bands. This can be thought of as excess skin and is similar in concept to a dress that becomes too large as its owner loses weight.

What are the Skin Tightening options Pure Bella Offers ?

Ultrasound skin tightening : Some treatments use focused ultrasound energy, which heats skin at specific depths and locations to induce collagen production and help skin become firmer.

Radiofrequency (RF) treatments : Radiofrequency (RF) energy can also be used to heat the skin and trigger collagen production. In contrast to ultrasound, RF focuses on epidermal layers to achieve a firmer, smoother appearance. Brand name treatments include THERMI RF®, Exilis®, and Thermage®.

IPL/RF combination treatments : A third class of skin tightening treatments combine intense pulsed light (IPL) with radiofrequency (RF) to heat deeper layers of skin and induce the natural healing response, which in turn triggers collagen production. The addition of IPL allows a provider to treat skin at multiple levels and can help focus the RF energy for more effective treatment.
