There are a variety of devices that I use to give patients tighter, younger looking skin right in the office with NO surgery and little-to-no discomfort or downtime.
In today’s beauty blog, I’m discussing two of my top skin tightening devices for the face and body. After reading this, get in touch with me for your personalized aesthetic consultation in Mission Valley, San Diego.
Thermage Comfort Plus Technology (CPT)
Using the power of heat from radiofrequency energy, Thermage CPT gently heats the collagen layer of the skin to produce a tightening effect. This painless procedure is so effective that it is commonly referred to as a “lunchtime facelift.”
What Thermage CPT can do for aging skin:
- Tightens skin on the face, neck, and body (yes, it works for body contouring!)
- Produces a smoother appearance to the skin
- Reduces upper eyelid “hooding” (sagging)
- Fades mild to moderate wrinkles and fine lines (eyes, mouth, & forehead)
- Boosts collagen production in the skin
This procedure is safe for ALL skin tones and takes about 1.5 to 2 hours. Usually, one single treatment is enough to get desired results. You’ll notice immediate results to some extent, but full results will be visible in about 2 to 3 months and last anywhere from 1 to 3 years.
Agnes RF Microneedling
One step beyond what Thermage can do, the Agnes RF device uses RF energy and microneedling to double-down on giving you youthful results.
Using microinsulated microneedles, this device sends measured RF energy (electricity) through the microneedle to reach existing collagen fibers in the skin and instantly tighten them.
Additionally, the heat from the RF energy causes the skin to produce more collagen. This provides the skin with the strength and structure to hold the newly tightened skin in place. About 2 to 3 treatments are usually needed to produce maximum lifting and tightening results.
How amazing is this — Agnes RF permanently removes fat under the eyes (bags) and under the chin (double chin). It generally takes 2 to 6 months for full results to be seen as the body heals, creates more collagen, and carries the destroyed fat cells away. Clients should maintain a steady weight because treated areas are subject to weight gain (same as any area of the body).
In addition to skin tightening, lifting, & fat removal Agnes RF also:
- Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
- Improves the appearance of acne scarring
- Treats cystic acne
One of the best aspects of this device is that it works well with our beautifully diverse clientele in San Diego. It can be safely used on all shades of skin!
