Skin Tightening

Laxity of facial skin is the most apparent sign of aging. As age progresses we lose fat in our face resulting in loose skin, which shows up in the shape of wrinkles, bands and droopiness. Several non-invasive devices and procedures are available to tighten the loose skin. These procedures can produce tightening by sending heat deep into the skin. The heat causes immediate tissue tightening and signals the body to start making new collagen. As the new collagen forms, skin may appear firmer and tighter. There is virtually no downtime.

 

Who can be treated?

Men and women of any age and all skin types who wish to treat skin laxity and surface wrinkles.

 

What areas can be treated?

The most common treatment areas are the face and décolleté, but other areas such as hands, arms, and abdomen can also be treated.

How do we treat?

Skin laxity can be treated in different ways. One procedure does not treat all conditions and skin surfaces. Each treatment regime is custom tailored for individual patients and depends upon their age and skin condition as well as medical and environmental factors. Your dermatologist at Binsina Laser Clinic can advise you the best treatment or combination of treatments suited to your condition. Treatments are carefully selected from the following set of procedures after a thorough examination of the area to be treated.

 

How do these treatments work?

Titan uses infra-red light to heat tissue in the deep dermis. During the Titan treatment, the patient first feels cool, then a brief heating sensation followed by a cool feeling with each pulse. There is minimal downtime and the results are amazing.
 

The eTwo Sublime procedure uses a combination of infrared light and bi-polar radio frequency to provide controlled deep dermal heating, which both stimulates new collagen and improves aged collagen to reduce deep wrinkles and tighten skin. During the procedure some patients feel a warm sensation while others can experience a slight pinching sensation.
 

The Portrait Plasma uses the plasma technology (plasma is the fourth state of matter) that works by delivering millisecond pulses of nitrogen plasma energy both on and below the surface of the skin to modify the skin’s architecture so that new collagen is generated leaving a healthy and even skin with an improved tone and texture.
 

The Vela shape combines radio frequency and light energy to tighten skin. Radio frequency acts to induce heat into the deeper skin layer with the aim of stimulating the tightening process in the tissue.

 

How many treatments will I need?

Each treatment regimen is different and varies from case to case depending upon age, skin condition, hormonal imbalances, genetic disposition, medical, environmental and dietary factors. Most patients can expect between 5 to 6 treatments to see improvement. A periodic top up treatment is recommended to continue to enjoy the youthfulness and freshness of your skin.

 

When will I see the results?

Results depend upon the age and condition of the skin. Some patients start to see early results over a period of 2 – 4 weeks. Others may take longer to see improvements. Further improvements continue to be observed for several months of the treatment.

 

Are there any side effects?

Generally, there are minimum side effects such as slight redness or mild swelling in the treated area, which is generally temporary. In some cases they can last from one to two days. In others, they can last from five to seven days as tiny scabs form and eventually fall off leaving a pink and healthy skin. Patients are advised not to expose the treated area to direct sunlight, very hot water and abrasive cleansers for some time. For best results it is recommended that patients always use a sunscreen of SPF 30+ when outdoors. Patients are strongly advised to follow post-care instructions provided by the Clinic to minimize risks and achieve desired results.

 

What are the benefits of Non-Surgical Skin Tightening treatments?

  • No cutting or puncturing of the skin
  • No surgery required
  • Minimal discomfort
  • Minimal risk of change in skin
  • May be used for all skin types
  • Minimal or no downtime

*Benefits and risks may vary from case to case and will depend on size and type of skin being treated, age, hereditary, medical, hormonal and life style factors.

 

How do Binsina’s treatments compare with those of other laser treatments?

Most laser procedures generally treat one or two skin conditions such as red or brown spots, or skin laxity. At Binsina Laser Clinic, we take a comprehensive approach to individually treating all common skin conditions such as age spots, sun damage, enlarged pores, acne and acne scars, pigmentation and melasma, stretch marks, fine lines and coarse wrinkles, thread and leg vein removal, as well as skin laxity. There is a different treatment approach to each skin condition and the best treatment or combination of treatments can be advised by your dermatologist at Binsina Laser Clinic.
