NON SURGICAL SKIN TIGHTENING TECHNOLOGY in RENO
It is not a secret that as we get older our skin gets looser. And looser. And looser.
Some areas can be treated with skin tightening procedures, like tummy tucks, breast lift, or facelifts. Other areas cannot treat be treated in that fashion.
Fortunately, in addition to surgery, technologies have been developed for reduction of cellulite, nonsurgical skin tightening and reduction of stretch marks.
There are several pieces of equipment using infrared energy, radiofrequency energy, ultrasonic energy, cold lasers and other means to stimulate skin tightening.
We have been very pleased with Alma Accent monopolar and bipolar radiofrequency skin tightening, cellulite reductions and stretch marks reduction machine available at our Reno facility.
The way Alma Accent works is by creating selected heating with radiofrequency energy at the base of the skin. Once the base of the skin had been heated up to 42°, the body creates additional collagen to improve the skin thickness, stimulate tightening, reduce cellulite and stretch marks appearance. 2 separate treatment heads are available for better results and most selective and personalized treatment.
Most patients require 4-6 treatments, each lasting about 25 or 30 minutes. Some patients will require longer sessions or greater number of treatments depending on the skin structure and thickness. Obviously, it will not produce as much skin tightening as a surgical procedure, however, the results could be quite impressive.
Most people feel that the treatments rather remind them hot stone massage. The patient notice some redness, gentle swelling and temporary sensitivity of the areas. Most people can return to regular duties immediately.
Fortunately, the treatments are for more affordable the surgery. The treatment costs start to at $350 per area per session. The best results can be achieved after liposuction before smoothing the skin flaps and decreasing the appearance of irregularities, after facelifts for additional skin tightening, during or after weight loss for more subtle skin reduction and also as a maintenance program to reduce skin laxity.
Several advance treatment protocols have been developed that combine Accent treatments with CO2 laser resurfacing or IPL photorejuvenation Treatments.
