This treatment helps:
Skin laxity is the sagging skin found on the face and body that becomes more pronounced as we age. It a is result of the body’s production of collagen and elastin – the two proteins that help our skin stay plump, firm, and smooth – slowing down. It is not ideal, but we all end up having to consider how we want to address it at some point in time. At VitalLife Scientific Wellness Center, we treat skin laxity through a number of skin treatment services in Bangkok, including skin tightening procedures.
Skin tightening are procedures through which targeted energy is applied to heat deeper layers of skin. This stimulates collagen and elastin production and gradually improves skin tone and texture. Some treatments also affect fibrous tissue to help smooth cellulite. There are a number of FDA-approved skin tightening treatments and technologies on the market that each use a unique mechanism to achieve the desired result.
What Is Skin Tightening
Types of Skin TighteningThe most common FDA-cleared skin tightening technologies are ultrasound and radio-frequency based.
Ultrasound based skin tightening uses focused ultrasound energy that heats skin at specific depths and locations to promote collagen production resulting in the skin becoming firmer. Usually, treatments are delivered via a handheld device that transmits ultrasound waves through the skin’s surface. One of our top therapies for skin laxity at VitalLife Scientific Health Center – your experts for skin treatment services in Bangkok – is called Ultherapy. Ultherapy is a non-invasive and safe treatment to lift, firm, and tone. It is FDA-approved for the face, neck, and décolletage.
Radio-frequency or RF energy is also used to heat the skin and trigger collagen production. However, in contrast to ultrasound, RF focuses on epidermal layers to achieve a firmer, smoother appearance. One of the most common treatments using this technology is Thermage, FDA-approved for the face, neck. Exilis is approved for the body. We offer both at VitalLife Scientific Wellness Center.
One of the most common questions that we get is if we treat face skin laxity the same as body skin laxity, and the answer is no. Ultrasound-based therapies, as explained above, are recommended for the face and chest, while radio-frequency therapies are recommended for the body, and multiple treatments are often necessary.
