Loose skin creates wrinkles and lines on your face, and the problem can be corrected with our non-surgical skin tightening. Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Lars Enevoldsen of Skinfinite Solutions Medical Spa and Laser Center, offers skin tightening for men and women in Modesto, Stockton and surrounding areas of California.
What is Skin Tightening?
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Lars Enevoldsen offers ThermiSmooth™ for non-invasive skin tightening. ThermiSmooth™ is performed using a specially designed thermistor regulated handpiece, which is supplied with the ThermiRF™ system. ThermiSmooth™ delivers precise heating to the skin’s surface. ThermiSmooth™ treatments are gentle and patients often say it feels like receiving a warm massage.
Benefits of Skin Tightening
Skin tightening gives your skin a smoother and younger appearance without surgery. The treatment is recommended for patients who have mild to moderate loose skin. The procedure is completely non-invasive and requires no downtime. All types of skin can be treated with skin tightening.
How Does Skin Tightening Work?
Clinical studies show that the collagen in skin will shrink when heated to a sustained temperature in excess of 40°C. Further, it has been shown that when the skin is heated to this level, an inflammatory process is engaged which can stimulate fibroblasts to produce new collagen over a period of time. Therefore, the challenge is to deliver precise amounts of heat, without risking overheating the tissues and causing patient discomfort.
Skinfinite Solutions Medical Spa and Laser Center offers several advanced skin tightening treatments for the face and body.
About VASER® Shape
VASER® Shape treatments use a combination of relaxing massage and ultrasound energy to smooth and tighten skin on the body.
The ThermiRase® system is specifically designed to help with lines and wrinkles that are caused by muscle contractions. Treatment areas include the neck and forehead.
About ThermiSmooth® for the Face and Body
The ThermiSmooth® system helps with lines, wrinkles and loose skin by gently heating the layers of skin. ThermiSmooth® Face can be used on the neck, forehead, eye area, mouth and cheeks. ThermiSmooth® Body is a cellulite reduction treatment for the legs, thighs, buttocks, hips, abdomen, back, breasts, arms and chest.
ThermiTight® treatments work by gently heating dermal tissues with a probe that emits radiofrequency energy. The result is increased collagen production that lifts and smooths the skin.
What to Expect from Skin Tightening
After applying a small amount of coupling gel, the ThermiSmooth™ handpiece is applied to the skin’s surface. The ThermiRF™ system is set to a specific target temperature (i.e. 42°C – 45°C). The handpiece is gently moved in a sweeping or circular fashion while gradually heating up the skin’s surface. As the skin’s temperature rises to the targeted temperature, the ThermiRF™ computer automatically adjusts the energy output to ensure precision of heating. A small zone is treated for about five minutes to achieve the goal of sustained heating to the target tissues. Treatments are repeated several times to achieve the desired cosmetic result.
