How Does Skin Tightening Work?
At NuDerma MD, we offer skin-tightening in Waukesha, WI, that utilizes advanced technologies to address various skin concerns. Each treatment, including HydroFacial, Thermage FLX, SkinTyte, and Hyperdilute Radiesse, has a unique mechanism of action, but they all stimulate collagen production and tighten the underlying tissue. Below, we explore how each treatment tightens your skin and reverses the effects of age.
HydroFacial treatment is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that utilizes the Zaffiro device to combine hydro exfoliation and infrared thermo-lifting. The Zaffiro device uses three streams of accelerated microscopic droplets to provide effective hydro-exfoliation, removing dead skin cells and deeply moisturizing the skin. Meanwhile, the device emits infrared radiation to gradually heat the deep layer of the dermis, causing collagen fibers to shrink and thicken. This encourages tightening and lifting of the skin, resulting in improved firmness and elasticity.
Thermage FLX is a non-invasive skin tightening treatment that utilizes radiofrequency therapy to stimulate collagen production and tighten the underlying tissue. The Thermage FLX system delivers radiofrequency energy deep into the skin, causing the collagen fibers to contract and stimulate the production of new collagen over time. This results in a gradual improvement in skin laxity, texture, and tone, with visible results lasting up to several years. Thermage FLX is especially effective in treating periorbital wrinkles and the appearance of cellulite.
SkinTyte is a non-invasive skin tightening treatment that utilizes advanced infrared light technology to improve the appearance of skin laxity on the face, neck, and body. Our skin loses collagen and elasticity as we age, causing sagging and wrinkles. SkinTyte delivers infrared energy deep into the skin, causing the collagen fibers to contract and stimulate the production of new collagen. This results in a gradual improvement in skin firmness, texture, and tone, with visible results lasting up to several months.
Hyperdilute Radiesse is a non-surgical skin tightening treatment that utilizes a dermal filler called Radiesse. This treatment involves diluting Radiesse with a local anesthetic and injecting it into the skin of the neck. Radiesse is a calcium-based microsphere that stimulates collagen production and provides immediate volume and lift to the treated area. As the Radiesse gradually dissolves, collagen production continues, resulting in long-lasting skin tightening and rejuvenation. Radiesse can tighten the skin on your neck without downtime.
