Skin Tightening

Heading photo

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. Forma: uses radiofrequency technology to provide optimal skin contraction in the deep layers of the skin, without under- or over- treating any one area. Radiofrequency 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 tone and textural irregularities.
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-frequncy skin resurfacing and subdermal 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.
