At our Thanet Laser Lipo clinic, a technique known as skin tightening, uses electrical pulses through a hand piece to heat the dermis ( deepest layer of skin). The heat stimulates new collagen growth by causing local contraction of collagen fibres, improving skin laxity and appearance. To visualise this, think of a wall with collagen being the cement holding the bricks together.Radio frequency encourages the cement to contract, becoming stronger and pulling the bricks closer together. The formation of new collagen acts as a new deep foundation for the skin.
The treatment is instant and carries on working, producing further delayed tightening, which becomes evident over the next few months. The new improved look of the skin will only deteriorate as your skin would naturally, for example, sun damage, smoking and so on.
The epidermis ( top layer of skin) is not damaged during this process. There is no downtime, it is not invasive. After your treatment you can go back to your normal routine.
Radio frequency is a great way to tighten loose skin on the face and body. Lipofirm Plus has different sized hand pieces depending upon whether it is tightening up skin on the face or body.Skin Tightening For The Body
Radio frequency can be applied to anywhere on the body. It can be combined with our fat loss treatment or a stand alone treatment.
If you have lost weight and want to tighten up your skin, want to improve the appearance of stretch marks anywhere on your body or want to combat the common problems associated with skin as it ages then Lipofirm Plus can help.
It is recommended that a course of six - eight treatments are completed to achieve optimum results. A break of six days is compulsory between treatments to allow your skin time to work.
