Nonsurgical skin tightening, also known as laser, ultrasound, or radiofrequency skin tightening, is a safe, effective, noninvasive procedure that uses thermal heat energy to tighten up loose skin. Although the main goal of the treatment is to improve skin laxity, it can also enhance your skin’s texture, appearance, and overall quality, and in some cases, give you a slimmer, more contoured shape in the targeted area.
Although there are a variety of different devices and technologies available, all nonsurgical skin-tightening treatment options have a few things in common:
To address loose skin, the team at The Spa in Saxonburg uses the Venus Legacy, an FDA-cleared body shaping and skin-tightening system. Venus Legacy combines the patented technology of multi-polar radiofrequency and pulsed electromagnetic fields to deliver uniform heat to the deepest layers of your skin. As the energy penetrates your skin through a handheld device, it causes a thermal reaction in your tissues that stimulates your body’s natural healing response. During each pulse of energy, you’ll feel a gentle vibration accompanied by heating and cooling sensations.
As your body increases its production of collagen and elastin in the weeks following treatment, you’ll see noticeably tighter, smoother skin. The process also helps break down the number of fat cells beneath your skin, to give you a trimmer, more contoured shape in the treatment area.
Part of what makes Venus Legacy so effective is its advanced VariPulse™ technology, a fully adjustable suction feature that allows the device to gently pull your skin upward, allowing it to send its stimulating energy deeper than similar technologies.
Because Venus Legacy technology relies on your body’s natural healing responses to achieve tighter skin, you’ll still see the most significant improvement after having multiple treatments. The collagen that’s created through the healing process builds up over time, becoming more evident over the course of several weeks.
Although your degree of skin laxity and your own personal goals helps Dr. Ryan and her team determine how many treatments you’ll need to achieve desired results, most patients attain the results they’re looking for after undergoing a series of six to eight sessions. Treatments are scheduled a week apart, and only take about 30 minutes each.
