As we age, gravity and outside elements cause our skin to lose its elasticity and youthfulness. Collagen, the natural protein fiber within the skin that maintains elasticity, gradually decreases with age which can result in lax skin and an older, heavier appearance. Many plastic surgery procedures such as a necklift or facelift can restore a younger appearance, but some patients may not be ready for a full surgical procedure. At AYA Medical Spa, owned and operated by the highly skilled surgeons of Atlanta Plastic Surgery, non-surgical skin tightening technology is available to help our patients reduce unwanted, excess skin and restore a younger, firmer look.
ReFirme™ and Ultherapy® are two FDA approved minimally invasive skin tightening procedures available at AYA. Using heat energy, each technology targets areas on the face and neck to encourage collagen re-growth to tighten up skin and smooth wrinkles and folds. Common areas that are affected by the signs of aging are the jowls and neck, eyelids and under-eye bags, and nasolabial folds. During consultation, our trained and experienced licensed providers will discuss your skin tightening options and design a treatment plan to reach your goals and needs.
ReFirme™ uses a process known as thermolysis through radiofrequency and light energies of elōs™ technology to heat deep tissue within the targeted area. The heat energy stimulates collagen production to firm skin and naturally smooth wrinkles. Even though deep tissues are heated, ReFirme™ is virtually painless and shows noticeable results even after one treatment. Similarly, Ultherapy® uses heat energy through ultrasound waves to stimulate collagen. Ulthera® can target the neck and facial areas such as sagging eyebrows or hanging jowls. Both technologies provide long-lasting results as collagen is naturally produced by the body.
Both of these procedures are minimally invasive and require little to no downtime. With our summer specials available until August 31st, 2013, patients can save up to $100 on ReFirme™ skin tightening treatments.
