Laser Skin Resurfacing

Are you looking for a non-surgical way to tighten your loose skin? You’re not alone, because in recent years more and more people have been demanding minimally invasive skin tightening treatments that can be done quickly, and require little downtime. So plastic surgeons are frequently asked, – How can I tighten my skin without surgery.

Non-surgical skin tightening
Traditionally, skin tightening was done surgically, but there are now effective non-surgical alternatives that offer the benefits of surgery without the pain and downtime. Non-surgical skin tightening is ideal for people with minimal skin laxity that are not yet ready for surgery. It is typically done using radiofrequency, ultrasound, or infrared technology.

ReFirmenon-surgical skin tightening
ReFirme is a popular skin tightening procedure that uses a combination ofbi-polar radiofrequency energy and infrared light, to restore firmness and elasticity to the skin.

ReFirme delivers energy to the lower layer of the skin,where it shrinks the collagen fibers and remodels the dermal layer. It also stimulates the growth of new collagen. As new collagen forms the skin becomes tighter in the months following treatment.

The loss of natural skin collagen is one of the main reasons why the skin begins to sag and wrinkle as time passes. ReFirme provides excellent skin tightening results, because it boosts collagen levels.

ReFirme is most often used to firm the skin on the face and neck. It can tighten sagging jowls and loose neck skin, and also reduce nasolabial folds.

If you have loose, saggy skin around the eyes or bags below them, you can certainly benefit from a natural eyelid lift. Rejuvenating the eyes will make you look younger and refreshed. But what is a natural eyelid lift, and how does it work.

Early eyelid rejuvenation techniques focused on removing skin and fat from the eye area. However, as the understanding of the anatomy of the eyelids has increased, there has been a move towards restoring lost volume to rejuvenate the appearance of aging eyes. That’s where the natural eyelid lift comes in.

What is a natural eyelid lift?
A natural eyelid lift is a fat transfer procedure that utilizes the patient’s own fat to rejuvenate the eyes. The fat for the procedure is harvested from another part of the body that has surplus amounts, such as the abdomen or thighs, and is removed using a specialized cannula (small tube). The fat undergoes a purification process and is then injected into the depressions in the orbital rim, or in the hollowsunder the eyes.

The natural eyelid lift is a safe procedure that provides natural appearing results, because the fat restores youthful fullness to the eyes.

Who is a good candidate?
The natural eyelid lift is ideal for people with mild drooping of the upper eyelids, or fat pockets below the eyes. However, the traditional eyelid lift is recommended for individuals that have a lot of excess skin in the upper eyelids.
