Laser Skin Tightening and Lifting

Address Age-Related Skin Laxity in the Philadelphia Area

As we get older and accumulate sun exposure, our skin’s support structure is weakened from loss of collagen and other structural components. Under the influence of gravity, this lax skin starts to sag. Jowls, droopy neck skin, wrinkles, and other changes due to skin laxity are some of the earliest and most noticeable signs of aging. That is why Mind Your Skin specializes in laser skin tightening in the Philadelphia area. These nonsurgical treatments are small investments that pay big dividends when it comes to providing a more rejuvenated, youthful look. More and more people turn to nonsurgical solutions rather than surgery. Skin tightening is ideal for the face, jowls, and neck.

Nonsurgical skin tightening is virtually painless, with energy devices such as Profound®, Titan® XL and ActiveFX™. All three procedures stimulate collagen and tighten skin naturally at only a fraction of the cost of surgery. These outpatient procedures take anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes, but the body’s collagen rebuilding and remodeling response can go on for several weeks to months!

How Does Laser Skin Tightening and Lifting Work?

Youthful skin maintains its firmness, elevated position, and smooth texture due to an abundance of beneficial “building blocks.” The body’s ability to replenish collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid as they diminish due to age and environmental damage slows over time. When coupled with elastin’s gradual loss of “springiness,” this leads to non-desirable cosmetic qualities: laxity, sagging, and wrinkles.

Stimulating the production of fresh collagen and elastin via laser skin tightening or targeted application of infrared or radiofrequency energy restores volume to the skin, providing a “home” for moisture-loving hyaluronic acid molecules and giving skin a new resilience.

Laser Skin Tightening with Profound

Profound

Technologies for skin tightening treatments, including laser skin tightening, had not evolved much for some time, so Profound® represented a unique new development by taking the technology to the next level: delivering energy directly into the precise layer of the skin to target for creating new elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid. This revolutionary and award-winning radiofrequency treatment requires no surgery and adds no fillers or toxins. (“New Treatment of the Year”, MyFaceBody Awards, USA)

What is Elastin?

Elastin is a protein that coils and recoils like a spring within the connective tissue of your skin. Elastin is what makes your skin, heart, lungs, and many other tissues elastic so that they can snap back into shape after stretching or contracting. Elastin works in your skin with collagen: Elastin provides elasticity and collagen provides structure to keep your skin smooth and firm. Starting in our mid 20s, elastin begins to break down and starts to lose its spring. Elastin is rarely made after puberty, and so aging begins.

The Profound®RF microneedling device controls five pairs of “micro-needle electrodes” that deliver energy to create zones of heat electively below the surface. Sophisticated technology, including sensors in the micro-needles, provides constant feedback from the skin to the device so it can maintain an even temperature for a precise duration and ensure optimal energy delivery for consistent results. The combination of needles and heat triggers a wound-healing response that goes beyond repairing the tissues impacted by the treatment. New collagen and elastin are produced in the following months, with the results becoming increasingly apparent.

A single radiofrequency treatment with Profound®RF is enough to reduce skin laxity by kickstarting the dermal remodeling process. It is especially effective for addressing age-related laxity on the face and neck by tightening loose skin that causes jowls, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines. Clinical studies revealed a very high response rate for wrinkles and laxity after one Profound session. A single treatment has been estimated to approach a surgical result by 40 percent and lasts about three to five years!

After local anesthesia is done, the treatment session itself lasts about 60 minutes or so in the Mind Your Skin offices.

Laser Skin Tightening with ActiveFX™

ActiveFX with UltraPulse® Encore™

Active FX™ fractional CO2 takes laser skin tightening to a different level by combining tightening and resurfacing the skin into one single treatment session for a firmer, smoother look. It is the only suitable device safe enough to treat the area under the eyes and the eyelids themselves. It requires no cutting or needles and results in no bruising. This makes it ideal for reducing the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and crepeyness, lifting jowls, evening out uneven pigmentation, improving texture, and shrinking large pores. Patients often take up to five days of downtime to allow the skin to heal. Remarkable results can be seen in one week and further improvement for up to three to four months with the ongoing stimulation of new collagen. This provides better support, which results in firmer, smoother, and tighter skin and is most commonly applied to face/neck and chest, but also elsewhere, such as hands.

The Active FX™ CO2 laser is “fractional,” which means it ablates columns of tissue, removing surface discoloration and stimulating immediate collagen contraction, as well as long-term collagen production and remodeling while leaving “bridges” of areas not touched by the laser, allowing for a quicker recovery.

Laser Skin Tightening with Titan®-XL

Titan® XL

Titan® is an FDA-cleared infrared device that uses deep heating to stimulate contraction of existing collagen and formation of natural new collagen for addressing a loose neck, jowls, and sagging skin on the face, neck, upper arms, and abdomen. The device delivers a series of slow pulses of heat that reach below the surface to induce collagen remodeling and new growth while providing protective cooling to the surface. It also can be combined with other treatments, such as IPL, Laser Genesis, ErbiumFX, ActiveFX™, and PearlFX for all dimensions of healthier, rejuvenated skin .

The result is obtained safely independent of skin type for both men and women. This treatment does not require injections, surgery, or recovery time. There is no downtime for your skin after Titan® treatment, so no one will know you did anything. Full results come gradually over a two- to three-month period.

Treatments to Complement Laser and other Skin Tightening at Mind Your Skin

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a booster treatment created out of your own blood and applied right after treatment. The growth factors in the plasma boost treatment results by seeping into the microchannels left by the ActiveFX, Profound, ErbiumFX, PearlFractional, or SkinPenPrecision procedures while also managing downtime.
