Laser Treatments for Skin Tightening and Body Contouring
Today’s state-of-the-art technology provides practitioners the ability to offer safe aesthetic procedures for patients experiencing excess fat and loose skin. Modalities are available that use a combination of both ultrasound and radio frequency technologies to tighten skin, reduce cellulite, and provide facial and body contouring and skin rejuvenation for targeted areas. The synergy of these two technologies achieves a superior result than either technology used on its own for the improvement of wrinkles, fine lines, scars, acne scars, stretch marks, cellulite, skin laxity or circumferential reduction of arms, stomach and legs.
Cold ultrasound shear wave technology allows the practitioner to selectively target fat cells, while leaving surrounding tissue unharmed. This wave vibration disrupts fat cell membranes, leading to gradual breakdown and release of stored fat. Damaged fat cells are then disposed of by the body through the lymphatic system.
Radio frequency delivered with a massage ring is used to produce deep thermal heating to the tissue while increasing circulation within the subcutaneous tissue. This energy contracts collagen fibers within the skin and stimulates the formation of new collagen. The application of radio frequency heat energy following fat destruction induces a volumetric contraction effect, tightening the skin and improving its texture.
The unique combination of ultrasound and radio frequency reduces treatment time and the number of sessions. In addition, the ability to use deep heating of tissue at various depths within the skin, allows the practitioner the flexibility to target precise areas for optimal results.
