Skin Tightening

One of the main components in maintaining skin's laxity is a protein in our connective tissue called elastin. Over time, and due to environmental factors, our body starts to produce less of it, which in turn makes our skin have less ability to "bounce back". Depending on the area, The De Pieri Clinic offers various options for skin tightening which would be determined at one of our complimentary consults. 

Treatment Options

  • Forma

    Forma uses radio-frequency technology to provide optimal skin contraction in the deep layers of the skin, without under- or over- treating any one area. This treatment is commonly combined with facials to give your skin that extra "boost". Radio-frequency energy will stimulate the formation of new collagen and improve skin's elasticity for long-lasting improvement of the skin's appearance. Forma is suitable for all skin types and is appropriate for individuals seeking a non-invasive and a natural-looking approach to improve skin and collagen stimulation. 

  • Carbossi Therapy

    Carbossi Therapy is a unique treatment devised in Italy, and widely used in Europe for tightening skin and stimulating natural collagen. Multiple small injections of carbon dioxide gas are delivered just under the skin, to increase delivery of oxygen to the skin cells. After a series of treatments, skin is visibly tighter, smoother, and plumper.

  • Morpheus8

    Morpheus8 is a radio-frequency skin resurfacing and sub-dermal tissue coagulation device that bridges the gap between fractional lasers and surgical procedures. This leading technology addresses multiple issues and offers the following benefits: improvement in skin texture and laxity, reduction in skin irregularities, and restoration of skin's youthful appearance. The most commonly treated areas include the face, neck, hands and chest, but any body areas that exhibit wrinkles, loose skin, scarring and stretch marks can be suitable for treatment. 
    When used on acne patients, there is a significant resolution of cystic acne and scars (improving acne scarring by 50%).
    Generally, results can be seen for most patients in as little as 1 treatment, but 3 or more treatments (depending on patient preference) are recommended to obtain longer lasting, more dramatic results. 

  • NeoGen Plasma Treatment

    NeoGen PSR is a cutting-edge skin rejuvenating treatment that uses the latest plasma technology to stimulate collagen in deep tissue to turn back time and restore your skin's elasticity. It is most commonly used to treat wrinkles, acne scarring and evening out the skin tone.
    NeoGen™ uses medical grade nitrogen gas from a pressurized cylinder, creating nitrogen plasma which is then pulsed into the skin. The Plasma emerges from the hand-piece in controlled pulses and rapid heating of tissue occurs as it gives up its unique thermal energy to tissue. The pressurized pulse of nitrogen plasma helps stimulate skin growth from within, which speeds up cell turn over and in turn results in collagen production.
