Skin Tightening Treatments – Without Surgery!
As men and women get older their skin naturally becomes more loose, lax and wrinkled. This can seriously undermine anyone’s self-confidence, as they may feel that they are watching their youth slip. Everyone ages at a different rate – but sadly no one is immune to the wrinkles, lines, and sagging, drooping skin that comes with age.
Fortunately, recent advancements in skin tightening technology are now available that can help reduce and even reverse the effects of aging on the face. AMAE Med Spa in the Troy, MI area offers three of the most advanced skin tightening and resurfacing treatments that can “turn back time”. These procedures – ThermiSmooth, Profound, and Morpheus8 – all harness the power of radiofrequency energy to tighten skin and restore a more youthful appearance.
Read on to learn everything you need to know about the benefits of radiofrequency skin tightening. Then call AMAE Med Spa in the Troy, MI area and schedule a consultation to determine which skin tightening procedure is right for you.
How Radiofrequency Skin Tightening Works
Collagen is the protein building block that forms the thick, smooth structure underneath the skin. Elastin is the protein produced by the body that enables skin to “snap back” when stretched. As a person ages, however, their production of collagen and elastin dramatically declines.
Radiofrequency is a type of thermal (heat) energy that penetrates deeply into the skin – without causing burns, or other surface skin damage. When radiofrequency is delivered to the lower layers of the skin it has a twofold effect. It immediately contracts (tightens) the skin – and it stimulates the body to increase production of collagen and elastin over time.
This results in skin that is tighter, thicker, smoother and substantially younger looking.
#1. Morpheus8 Radiofrequency Skin Tightening
AMAE Med Spa is one of the only medical spas offering Morpheus8 radiofrequency (RF) microneedling in the Troy, MI area. Morpheus8 is a state-of-the-art technology which combines microneedling with the delivery of radiofrequency to stimulate the production collagen and elastin deep within the lower (dermal) layer of the skin.
Very fine clinical-grade needles penetrate the skin to deliver deep radiofrequency energy, stimulating the skin to repair itself on a structural level. In addition to use on the neck and face Morpheus 8 radiofrequency microneedling can be used to tighten skin just about anywhere on the body.
In addition to skin tightening, Morpheus8 can also reduce cellulite, stretch marks and scars almost anywhere on the face or body!
#2. Profound Radiofrequency Skin Tightening
AMAE Med Spa in the Troy, MI area also offers a second advanced radiofrequency microneedling skin tightening called Profound, by Candela. Profound radiofrequency microneedling also has the ability to drastically increase skin thickness, smoothness, volume and elasticity.
In clinical trials, Profound has an amazing 100% proven effectiveness for tightening skin! Profound is one of the most popular skin tightening treatments among our Troy, MI patients – especially for tightening loose skin on the “jowls” (sagging skin) around the neck, chin and jaw.
To ensure that treatments with Profound are completely painless, Dr. Ali applies local anesthetic before patients’ skin tightening procedure. Because radiofrequency energy immediately contracts skin, some skin tightening benefits will be immediately visible. However, Profound continues to stimulate collagen and elastin production for several months – so complete results will be fully visible in three to six months, as the skin continues to rebuild and renew itself on a structural level.
#3. ThermiSmooth Radiofrequency Skin Tightening
ThermiSmooth is another radiofrequency skin tightening treatment that can reduce sagging skin, as well as treat fine lines, wrinkles.
While minimally invasive Morpheus8 and Profound use microneedles to penetrate the skin, ThermiSmooth is completely non-invasive. A smooth handpiece is used to deliver the RF energy to the top layer of the skin – so no anesthetic is needed and there is no recovery time afterwards.
ThermiSmooth skin tightening treatments last about one year or more. But patients who come in for regular maintenance treatments every 9 to 12 months, can prolong ThermiSmooth’s skin tightening results.
While ThermiSmooth results are not as dramatic as Morpheus8 or Profound RF microneedling, it is less expensive and comes with zero downtime. ThermiSmooth can be an excellent first skin-tightening treatment for women in their late 30s or 40s who are seeing the first signs of skin sagging. While Morpheus8 and Profound may be ideal for women and men who have greater degrees of skin laxity and sagging.
#4. CO2RE Laser Skin Tightening
In addition to radiofrequency skin tightening, AMAE Med Spa in the Troy, MI area also offers laser skin resurfacing and tightening with the revolutionary CO2RE treatment. The CO2RE laser stimulates cellular regeneration with a fractional CO2 laser.
In addition to tightening skin and smoothing out lines and wrinkles, the CO2RE laser can also reverse sun damage, remove spots & pigmentation, and reduce scars from injury, acne or surgery. While the Co2RE laser comes with a small recovery period it can be ideal for women and men who have multiple signs of aging and sun damage, in addition to skin laxity
