Skin Tightening in Encino
Ready to get skin tightening in Encino? Venus Versa skin tightening helps our patients look and feel younger without surgery.
What is Skin Tightening?
Even the best skin care regimens are not always enough to combat the effects of aging. Over time, the body produces less collagen, a protein that is essential for the skin’s firm and elastic quality. Without collagen, the skin begins to droop, creating a saggy and sad appearance.
Fortunately, advances in skin care have made way for innovative solutions for the treatment of skin laxity that do not require surgery. At our Encino medical spa we offer skin tightening for individuals with a mild degree of loose, sagging skin who are not ready or simply do not desire to undergo surgical intervention. Our nurses are expertly trained and skilled in several non-surgical skin tightening treatments, including radiofrequency treatment with Venus Versa and collagen induction therapy, both of which can produce noticeable skin-firming improvements safely and efficiently.
Benefits of Non-surgical Skin Tightening
Recent statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons reveal that non-surgical skin tightening procedures have been on a steady rise in the last few years. Patients are choosing non-surgical skin tightening for many reasons, including:
- It’s non-invasive
- No incisions are necessary, which means no scarring
- No anesthesia is involved
- Relatively minor side effects involved
- Fewer risks are involved than with surgical options
- Downtime and post-op discomfort is minimal
- Treatment is short (usually performed in about an hour or less)
- Safe to use on various body areas, depending on the specific procedure
Radiofrequency Skin Tightening with Venus Versa
Venus Versa is one of the most versatile tools on the market for skin care. Its innovative features allow us to treat an array of skin imperfections, from sun damage to skin laxity. During a skin tightening treatment, the Venus Versa device delivers radiofrequency energy to the outer layers of the skin down to the deeper layers of the dermis. The energy heats the deep soft tissue, without harming the skin, and causes it to contract. The process also triggers the body’s collagen regeneration process, producing firmer, younger-looking skin. Skin tightening with Venus Versa can be used on the various body areas including the face, neck, abdomen and thighs.
Thanks to Venus Versa’s advanced cooling feature, the skin is not harmed and does not overheat. Patients may feel a slight warming sensation during treatment but this is usually well tolerated. There is no downtime after treatment, so patients can resume normal activities immediately after.
Results with Venus Versa become visible gradually. Patients will notice an improvement in the firmness of the skin a few days after treatment, with results continuing to improve in the following months. Multiple treatment sessions are required for optimal results. Our team can recommend a number of sessions based on the target area and severity of skin laxity.
Collagen induction therapy, also known as microneedling, is another non-invasive skin tightening option we offer at SILK. Treatment involves using tiny needles on a hand-held device that is gently rubbed over the skin. The needles create tiny puncture wounds on the skin, triggering the body to heal itself by creating more collagen. The production of collagen creates firmer and youthful-looking skin. Collagen induction therapy can be used to improve skin laxity on the face and neck. Results are gradual and improve over the course of several months. Repeat sessions are generally recommended to achieve the most desirable results.
Often times, anti-aging serum or platelet rich plasma (PRP) is applied to the area of treatment. The small skin openings allow for penetration of the serum or PRP, inducing further collagen formation and further enhancing the results. Contact SILK today for microneedling in Encino.
