ICLS offers advanced skin tightening treatments designed to address skin laxity or loose skin on the face and body. Many non-invasive technologies use radiofrequency (Thermage®, Profound®) or ultrasound (Ultherapy®/Ulthera) to reach the subcutaneous tissue layer. The heat energy stimulates collagen production to lift, tone, and tighten the skin and improve of the skin’s overall appearance.
These treatments can be used on the face and body for early prevention as well as maintenance following a facelift. Skin tightening procedures are a great option for patients who are not quite ready for a facelift, but who would like to have the appearance of tighter, more youthful skin around the eyes and along the facial contours.
Our plastic surgeon also relies on radio frequency for our unique scarless skin tightening to provide boost collagen and lift on the neck, breasts, arms, abdomen, thighs and knees.
