With fall in the air and the holiday season quickly approaching, you want to look your best while visiting with family and friends. Over time, skin loses its elasticity and the production of proteins slow, causing areas around the neck, chin and face to sag. AYA Medical Spa offers ReFirme™ and Ulthera® skin-tightening treatments to lift areas of loose skin, revealing a more youthful appearance. In past blogs, AYA highlighted various anti-aging treatments. Now, we’d like to discuss how ReFirme™ and Ulthera® use different minimally invasive technologies to achieve a lifted appearance.
ReFirme™ is an FDA cleared, complete anti-aging solution that uses radiofrequency and light energies of elos™ technology to heat deep layers of skin within the target treatment area. Heat encourages collagen production to tighten lax skin. ReFirme™ targets sagginess under the eyes, nasolabial folds, and the neck. Patients also benefit from this treatment as it is quick and virtually painless.
Ultherapy® is an FDA approved skin tightening technology that uses ultrasound waves to stimulate collagen growth and tighten weakened tissue around the neck, cheek jowls, forehead, brow, and chin. Skin rejuvenation begins after just one Ultherapy® treatment.
Patients enjoy the many benefits of these non-invasive technologies including quick recovery times and lowered risk of health complications compared to traditional surgical procedures. Most patients return to normal activity after treatment; while rare, some may experience mild and temporary side effects such as redness or swelling following the procedure. Since collagen production is gradual, results appear over time, usually a month or two after treatment. Both procedures are safe and effective for all skin types on men and women.
