Skin Tightening Q & A

How does Pellevé® tighten skin?

The Pellevé wrinkle reduction system uses radiofrequency (RF) energy that passes through the upper layer of facial skin to heat tissues in deeper layers. Heat from RF energy causes two results:

  • Contracts existing collagen to immediately tighten skin
  • Stimulates production of new collagen and elastin

As old layers of skin are shed and replaced with new collagen and elastin, your fresh skin is tighter, stronger, and more elastic.* As Pellevé tightens skin, it also effectively diminishes:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Lines on the forehead
  • Wrinkles around your mouth
  • Lines between your eyebrows
  • Loose skin above or below your eyes
  • Nasolabial folds (wrinkles running from your nose to the corners of your mouth)

How is skin tightened using PrecisionTx™?

PrecisionTx is an advanced laser treatment designed to eliminate fat and tighten skin in your neck, jawline, and lower cheeks. It’s also a minimally-invasive procedure, so it uses tiny incisions that allow the device to be inserted into the layer of fat.

Dr. Sannoh can direct laser energy into fat cells, which destroys the cells, and it can be used to target your skin, where it triggers collagen production. Your skin becomes tighter as fresh collagen replaces old skin.

How does treatment with Smartlipo® Triplex® tighten your skin?

Smartlipo Triplex is similar to the PrecisionTx, except that it uses a laser to tighten skin and eliminate fat on your abdomen, arms, legs, and buttocks. It’s also a minimally-invasive procedure that requires only local anesthesia and a small incision.

If you use Smartlipo Triplex to remove fat, the laser is inserted deep into the targeted area of fat. Heat from the laser liquefies the fat, then it’s gently suctioned out of your body.

The device operates using three different wavelengths, which Dr. Sannoh can use one at a time or together to customize your results. Smartlipo Triplex has wavelengths that effectively stimulate collagen and elastin production in your skin. The increase in collagen tightens skin and improves its elasticity by 57%.*

Whether you want to rejuvenate facial skin, or you’d like to combine fat reduction with skin tightening, don’t hesitate to call Total Wellness Healthcare Clinic. Dr. Sannoh and the team are available to answer your questions and schedule a consultation, so you can determine which type of treatment is the best choice for your aesthetic needs.
