3 Popular Non-invasive Skin Rejuvenation Treatments: From Ultherapy to Aluma

Posted by June 24th, 2020 in News

The latest innovations in cosmetic technology have given patients, especially those within the 50 and 60 age bracket, more options to have their facial skin issues effectively addressed without surgery. In the past, the most popular, and arguably the most effective, facial skin rejuvenation treatment is a surgical facelift. Nowadays, Ultherapy skin tightening and other non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatments have overtaken surgical facelift in popularity for several reason, not least of which is the “non-invasive” factor.

Here are your Top 3 options for non-invasive skin rejuvenation:

1. Ultherapy Skin Tightening

Ultherapy is an FDA-cleared non-surgical cosmetic treatment for loose or sagging skin; specifically, sagging skin around the eyebrows and loose skin under the chin and the neck. Ultherapy is also the only non-invasive treatment specifically cleared by the FDA to soften and improve lines and wrinkles on the décolletage or the chest area. It is the go-to treatment of patients who wish to effectively address these skin issues with results that can only be described as a “natural-looking lift.”

Ultherapy uses focused sound waves to deposit energy into the deep layers of tissue underneath the skin, which in the past, can only be targeted by a surgical facelift. These focused sound waves stimulate collagen production to create new tissue. Depending on the patient’s collagen production and natural healing process, optimal results may be achieved around the second or third month following treatment.

2. Venus Freeze

Like Ultherapy, Venus Freeze is also a skin tightening treatment that stimulates collagen production by using RF (radiofrequency) to deliver energy. Over a series of treatment areas like the face, neck, abdomen, legs, and arms can benefit. Patients who undergo this treatment see a noticeable improvement in facial skin laxity, wrinkles, and fine lines, and skin damage caused by prolonged sun exposure and skin damage as part of the natural aging process. One of the main advantages of Venus Freeze is that there is no downtime and there are no concerns about pigmentation for dark skin patients who are at risk at times when they use laser-based devices.

3. Thermismooth – Similar to Venus Freeze, it uses RF technology to tighten skin and stimulate collagen around the eyes to improve the droopy eyes and the smoker’s lines around the mouth. There is no pain with the treatment and there is no downtime as well

3. Fractional CO2 Laser

For patients whose primary concern is skin laxity around the eyes, fractional CO2 laser treatment is the go-to non-surgical procedure. At Rejuvé, patients who wish to have a non-surgical eyelift are prescribed to undergo what is known as the “Madonna Lift.” The procedure uses an advanced fractional CO2 laser called SmartXide DOT, which is a tool that targets the deep layers of the skin around the eyes to plump up wrinkles, lift sagging eyebrows, tighten the skin around the eyes, and ultimately improve the appearance of your eyes without surgery.

For your reference, these are all non-surgical skin tightening treatments that target specific problem areas.
