Safe & Effective Body Skin Tightening Treatment
• Firming and tightening skin on the body
• Resulting in smoother, softer skin!
• Also helping with cellulite
Over time our skin begins to lose its elasticity, for example as early as around the age of 25 we are losing around 1% of collagen a year.
It is possible that the affects of pregnancy or weight loss may be giving you concerns about areas of your body which are showing loss of skin tautness and lose of elasticity. It is not possible to improve true ‘excess skin’ but this treatment can improve slightly loose, crepe-textured skin.
Spend a few moments looking through our Treatment Summary to gain an idea if the basics regarding skin tightening for the body at the Clinic:
At this clinic we use ProMax Lipo which uses radiofrequency technology. This technology has been used in the medical realm for many years, recently being utilised in the cosmetic arena. Radio-frequency energy is applied to the skin, which gently heats the skin’s surface thereby stimulating the naturally occurring collagen and elastin within the skin to improve overall skin tone, texture and elasticity.
A course of 6 treatments is usually required at 2-4 weekly intervals. This treatment will leave your skin feeling smooth and re-invigorated.
Promax is suitable for most individuals. But, if you are pregnant or breastfeeding then it is necessary to wait a while as the treatment is not advisable. This skin tightening treatment is aimed at people who have slack skin perhaps resulting from ageing, or maybe after weight loss or following pregnancy. The process will help to tighten skin that appears to have a crepe-like surface or slightly lax skin, however it is not designed to reduce ‘excess skin’.
A thin film of contact lotion is applied to the area to be treated then an applicator delivering RF current is moved across the area in circular movements which heats the skin. The required skin temperature is reached quickly and then maintained for 3 to 4 minutes. Typically, each treatment sessions lasts 30 to 45 minutes. The contact lotion is then wiped away and suitable body firming products are applied. The whole treatment is regarded as a very pleasant relaxing experience and the majority of people enjoy it.
This treatment is not considered painful, in fact, most people report on how pleasant and relaxing the heating sensation is due to the multi-frequency technology of ProMax. Some clients have likened the feeling as comparable to a hot stone massage.
Generally, a course of 8 to 10 treatments are recommended to be given at 2 weekly intervals. Following a course of treatments, the results are expected to last between 1 to 2 years, however for optimum results it is recommended that maintenance sessions are taken perhaps once every 1-3 months
Side effects are extremely rare following this treatment but occasionally there can be slight, short term discomfort of a low level which is easily well tolerated. Oedema (swelling) and erythema (redness) may occur, but will fade within a few hours.
