As we age it’s common for loose skin to build up around the face or the body. This is due to the breakdown of collagen and elastin. Other causes for sagging or droopy skin, of course, include large and speedy weight loss or post-pregnancy. To combat this and to tighten up the loose skin there are many procedures we can access today. These include surgical and non-surgical procedures.
The face is one of the most popular places for tightening procedures, especially the jowls and further down on the neck. Other areas of the body commonly affected include the stomach and upper arms.
BODYTite is a procedure which removes fat and tightens loose skin by sculpting the body, firming the skin and its structure. TUMMYtite, FACETite and ACCUTite are all different versions of this where the laser is targeted to specific areas.
Radiofrequency (RF) for High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) involves heating cells underneath the skin’s surface in order to produce more collagen. This, in turn, tightens the skin elasticity. It can also be used with microneedling.
