We at Simply Skin Medical Spa believe that “Tightening and Lifting” are no longer about surgery but all about collagen regeneration and remodeling. In recent years, laser technology has offered an alternative to patients with skin laxity and cellulite that allows you to put off the need for surgical intervention.
Tightening and lifting are achieved with laser energies that heat the deep dermis which triggers rebuilding deep collagen and repairs the support structures beneath the skins surface. The result is firmer and tighter skin, diminished unsightly dimples of cellulite, and better skin texture in the area of the face, jaw line, neck, upper arms, abdomen, thighs, buttocks, knees, and the flanks.
Viora ReLift, Viora ReFit, and SmartXide DOT Fractional Resurfacing are FDA approved therapies that we utilize to add back vital collagen that has been lost over time and create a lift that takes years off your appearance.
ReFit by Viora
In addition to the normal aging process, excessive weight loss and pregnancy can lead to loose and sagging skin and stretch marks. The volume loss results in folds of redundant skin and stretch marks.
Many people exercise regularly and are able to maintain body structure, but maintain a certain fat percentage on body areas such as the abs, legs, back, and buttocks.
Simply Skin Medical Spa is offering the ReFit treatment, to deliver four modes of radiofrequency (RF) energy to target different tissue depths, and vacuum therapy(to ensure deeper heat penetration) to heat the skin layers. This causes the underlying collagen and elastin fibers to rebuild and reduces the size of fat cells. This results in tighter, smoother skin, and improved appearance of cellulite and stretch marks.
The ReFit treatment is suitable for all skin types, and offers the most effective non-surgical treatment, without down-time, that is fast, painless, and an affordable solution to skin laxity.
ReLift by Viora Reaction
Age, gravity, and genetics play a role in skin conditions including sagging skin and localized fat along the neck and jowl lines. For many patients the result is a “square face” or “bulldog look”.
While traditionally this condition has been addressed by surgical procedures, ReLift by Viora Reaction is a non-invasive procedure that painlessly and effectively targets the cheeks, jowl lines and necks of patients who want to restore or remodel their lower face, without the expense, pain or risk of surgical procedures.
The ReLift technology also allows the skin’s underlying network of collagen and elastin fibers to be gently heated. This action causes the fibers to shrink, restoring the skin’s elasticity, reducing the visibility of lines and wrinkles, and leaving a tighter, smoother appearance.
ReLift's double action gravity-defying procedure allows us to fulfill our desire to look younger and improve our physical appearance.
Reaction™ by Viora can also be used to rejuvenate:
The ReFit and ReLift body contouring and skin tightening treatments have generated exceptional results, as early as the first treatment. Patients have recorded a firmer and smoother appearance post treatment, with visible results. The skin tightening procedure has also been very successful in improving the appearance of deep folds, wrinkles and sagging skin.
No side effects are involved other than looking great and having improved confidence. The Reaction™ system is simple and completely safe to use and was designed with maximum comfort in mind. There is absolutely no downtime. Patients can return to their daily routine immediately after the session.
SmartXide DOT Fractional Resurfacing
In addition to non-invasive ReLift and ReFit, we offer SmartXide DOT Laser therapy. This is a powerful, fractional CO2 skin resurfacing device that stimulates collagen production resulting in firming and tightening, and dramatically improves the skins tone and texture.
Unlike traditional CO2 lasers, SmartXide treats the skin using DOT Therapy (Dermal Optical Thermolysis), which penetrates and vaporizes only small areas or dots of skin tissue instead of the entire outer layer of the skin which allows a quick healing time.
With a single SmartXide Laser treatment, a variety of cosmetic goals can be achieved as skin issues ranging from sun damage to acne scars are corrected.
The SmartXide Laser addresses a variety of cosmetic concerns including:
The SmartXide DOT laser can effectively treat the cheeks, nose, chin, and forehead , the sensitive areas around the eyes and mouth, as well as the neck, chest, décolleté and hands.
For the first few days after resurfacing with the SmartXide Laser, your skin will experience some redness, which begins to fade within a few days and typically resolves completely within about a week. Your skin may also begin peeling a few days after SmartXide DOT Therapy. During this time, it is imperative that you do not pick at or scratch the treated area(s), as doing so may cause scarring or permanent pigmentation changes.
The results of the DOT therapy are long lasting, perhaps even the longest lasting results we see in laser medicine. In fact, it is the best tool we have in laser medicine to address deep lines on the face and neck, acne scarring, and stretch marks.
SmartXide DOT Resurfacing results begin to appear about a month after the procedure. It takes several months to complete the collagen remodeling process, so you should not judge your final results until about 4 – 6 months after your SmartXide treatment.
