As we age, our skin starts to lose its elasticity and thus we start to see the skin detach/relax and eventually sag. This can happen at any age and is often a result of both sun exposure and our genetics. These changes in our skin are one of the tell tale signs of facial aging. Our goal is to help you achieve rejuvenated skin using methods that are right for you. One of these methods uses either advanced laser or radiofrequency skin-tightening technology. This is safe and effective when used by expert facial plastic surgeons, trained aestheticians and cosmetic nurses.
Radiofrequency skin tightening is a safe and highly effective procedure that can be used to tighten the skin. Radiofrequency is a form of energy that penetrates the deeper layers of the skin resulting in a warming of the skin. Warming the skin causes the body to breakdown old, damaged collagen (responsible for the loss of skin tightness) and produce more youthful collagen. This results in the skin becoming brighter, tighter and more youthful overall.
Radiofrequency skin tightening is a very safe procedure. Compared to laser skin tightening, there is less damage to the skin and because it does not affect the color of the skin, it is safe for all skin colors.
A large number of research studies have demonstrated the benefits of radiofrequency skin tightening.
