Minimally Invasive Skin Tightening: SmartLipo

This is an exciting technology for those that suffer from loose skin and reduction in collagen. With age and the effects of gravity, it’s normal for everything to sag over time, it’s a fact of life. But now we have an effective tool to fight gravity and the affects of aging.

The skin tightening has proven desirable results for skin flaccidity. With the use of the 1064 YAG laser or SmartLipo, the under surface of your skin is heated up to coagulate the tiny blood vessels as well as the collagen and connective tissue that affects the tightness of your skin. In doing this it causes the skin to contract and new collagen to form.

The laser has also been shown useful in melting the fat for easier removal and smoother results. This is especially useful in areas where there is cellulite or tougher tissue. It not only helps reduce the appearance of cellulite, but also tightens the skin for better results. In fact, SmartLipo has been shown to tighten skin up to 57% more than liposuction alone. If you are concerned about tightening of your skin and want the best results possible, then you should consider the use of SmartLipo with your liposuction procedure.

Non-Invasive Skin Tightening: Venus Legacy

The Venus Legacy is an innovative device that offers solutions to many common cosmetic issues caused by the normal aging process. With the use of Radio Frequency and Pulsed Magnetic Fields, the Venus Legacy is able to effectively tighten skin, reduce wrinkles, diminish cellulite and accomplish circumferential reduction by melting fat.

How does it work?

The Pulsed Magnetic Fields (PMF) plays a pivotal role in the success of the Venus Legacy. PMF is FDA approved for a wide variety of uses including inflammation, wound healing, and pain management. The magnetic field penetrates into the skin and results in an electrical charge that surrounds the cells in the dermal layer. This electrical field causes an increase production in fibroblast-derived-collagen through a non-thermal mechanism. It also stimulates angiogenesis (new blood vessels) to encourage the growth of tissue to thicken and tighten the skin.

The second component to the Venus Legacy is the Radio Frequency Matrix. The radio frequency bipolar matrix supplies a high-frequency alternating electrical current that penetrates the skin to generate heat. The increased heat helps to stimulate natural wound healing process of the skin. It also results in synthesis of new collagen and elastic fibers. In addition, the heat causes contraction of the collagen fibers and fat cell rupture (lipolysis).

To enhance the effects of the magnetic pulse and radio frequency the Venus Legacy has a specialized hand piece with suction. The addition of suction has allowed for deeper penetration and quicker more effective results. This means more skin tightening, more fat reduction, and more cellulite reduction.

Aging process

As we age there are a number of processes that take place to show our age. The exposure to ultraviolet radiation from sunlight causes skin aging, a process called photo aging. This photo aging causes loss of elasticity of collagen leading to lax and saggy skin and wrinkles. If also causes thinner skin further increasing the sight of wrinkles. The Venus Legacy will help to increase the collagen growth to thicken and tighten the skin to significantly reduce the normal signs of aging.
