Skin Tightening – Face & Neck
When gravity begins to take a toll on your looks, it’s hard not to feel like your youthful days are behind you. If you’ve ever surreptitiously pulled back at your increasingly large jowls, or hidden your once graceful neck with bulky turtlenecks or silky scarves, then you know firsthand how the effects of aging can quietly make their way into your life. A shroud of sagging skin over your face and neck can obscure your vibrant outlook on life, and make you look much older than you may feel. However, there is a way for you to defy the aging process and recapture the looks you once had – and you can do it without resorting to painful surgical procedures with long recovery times.
Get natural looking results using the latest in cutting-edge aesthetic procedures. Renew MediSpa notably offers an exceptional collection of nonsurgical, no-downtime skin tightening treatments for the face and neck. With the most advanced skin tightening technology, we can help you regain a vivid confidence and youthful vibrancy without incisions and sutures.
Profound RF for the Face
Renew MediSpa was the first in New Hampshire to offer Profound RF, the very latest in skin tightening and skin surface smoothing technology. This device can safely and effectively be used for both the face and body. Profound RF uses fractional radiofrequency—a type of energy that’s been used safely in the medical world for decades. Profound RF works by using particularly fine needles, called microneedles, to deliver precise amounts of radiofrequency energy into specific depths of the skin and triggering remarkable change. This precisely delivered radiofrequency energy stimulates collagen production, allowing for a gradual but dramatic skin tightening effect. Profound RF is powerful enough to deliver effective skin tightening—but gentle enough to be used on delicate facial features.
Renew MediSpa has been expertly trained to use both unique treatment tips of the Profound RF device: the Dermal Handpiece and the SubQ Handpiece.
The Dermal Handpiece treats skin laxity and fine lines within the skin’s dermal layer, while the SubQ Handpiece enters the subcutaneous fatty layer beneath the skin to eliminate unwanted fatty tissue and smooth out the appearance of cellulite.
Profound RF’s dermal tip can perform powerful skin tightening and smoothing on areas like the lower face, jawline, as well as the neck. The many areas that Profound RF can target includes:
- Lower face and Jawline
- Upper Neck and Lower neck
- Lines around the mouth
- Double chin
- Multiple body areas such as Upper Arms/Back of Arms, Abdomen, Thighs
Profound RF face and neck treatments are ideal for those who are looking for both skin tightening and re-texturizing of the face and neck. In one single session, it has been estimated that the minimally invasive Profound RF can deliver much of the laxity improvement that would have been achieved with an invasive surgical facelift, making it a truly viable option for those seeking a proven, non-surgical rejuvenation treatment. Moreover, Profound RF has held a “100% Worth-It” rating on the RealSelf website—a feat almost unheard of in aesthetics!
Profound RF’s other treatment handpiece, the Profound RF SUB-Q tip, is FDA cleared to improve the appearance of cellulite and is also used to destroy fat in the submental region- the “double chin.”
Ultherapy is one of the most renowned names in facial skin tightening. This non-invasive treatment uses micro-focused ultrasound energy to tighten skin with minimal downtime and long-term results. Ultherapy also uses Ultrasound imaging to precisely target the underlying areas of skin that are suffering from the effects of aging. Because it’s not a laser, Ultherapy can bypass the superficial skin layers to deliver a powerful skin tightening treatment that gets to the root causes of aging.
Ultherapy can perform skin tightening on a wide range of delicate facial areas: the eyebrows, the jawline the neck, and even the décolletage. There are two types of Ultherapy treatments- “Lifting” and “Smoothing.” The Lifting treatment utilizes transducers which deliver energy to deeper skin structures, whereas the Smoothing treatment utilizes a transducer that focuses on the more superficial layers. Based on your treatment goals, our certified Ultherapists Jamileh Kheiri and Beth Wagner, RN can help you decide which treatment is best for you.
Viora & Pellevé® For the Face
Renew MediSpa also offers Viora and Pellevé® for skin tightening. These are both non-invasive radiofrequency devices that gently target the dermal layer to encourage natural, gradual collagen production and skin tightening.
Some advantages of Viora and Pellevé® for skin tightening include:
- No downtime
- No anesthesia required; mild or zero discomfort
- Great for younger clients or those with minor laxity
- Pellevé®: can be done right before a special event
Both of these remarkable procedures are best for those with mild skin laxity. When you’ve made the decision to go with either Viora or Pellevé®, we will schedule approximately 4-5 sessions over the course of the following few months. Conversely, these treatment options can also be used as “maintenance” procedures once a more assertive treatment has already been done in the past, such as Profound RF.
At Renew MediSpa, we offer a diverse range of anti-aging treatments to help you find the right facial / neck skin tightening procedure for your needs. We’ll help you find the ideal skin tightening treatment based on your concerns, goals, and other factors. We are passionate about helping you navigate your choices in the rapidly expanding field of non-surgical aesthetics, and we’ll help you make the best possible decision based on your goals and financial considerations.
Skin Tightening – Body
We know you do what it takes to maintain good health, and that you care about your body’s wellness. However, it can be somewhat discouraging if your body doesn’t completely reflect this mindset. You want to look as good as you feel, but if it seems like your body does not respond to your hard work and dedication, we invite you to learn about our beneficial body sculpting treatments.
It’s easy to think that diet and exercise are the be-all-end-all methods for achieving a sleeker, smoother, and slimmer figure. Unfortunately, factors like the loss of skin elasticity and aging can lead some to form unwanted pockets of body fat or the appearance of sagging skin in multiple areas of the body. Where once there were smooth curves, there now may be loose, crepey skin and pockets of fat that never seem to respond to any lifestyle change.
When diet and exercise have failed, Renew MediSpa can help you regain your firmer, smoother figure with our collection of non-invasive skin tightening and fat reducing treatments for the body. Feel confident, sexy, and powerful—and you can do it without the sacrifice of surgery.
Profound RF For the Body
Always one to adopt new, innovative treatments, Renew MediSpa is proud to have been the first practice in New Hampshire to offer Profound RF’s revolutionary skin tightening technology. Using combined microneedling and state-of-the-art radiofrequency technology, Profound RF can achieve stunning skin tightening and cellulite reduction on the body with extreme precision. Using safe, time-tested radiofrequency energy, Profound RF delivers radiofrequency energy into specific depths of the skin to encourage collagen production, treat cellulite, and to eliminate unwanted pockets of body fat.
Profound RF can target these areas for body skin tightening:
- Above the knees
Renew Medispa offers Profound RF’s two treatment tips: the dermal tip and the SubQ. The dermal tip uses 5 pairs of electrodes fitted with micro-needles, and these micro-needles enter the dermal layer of the skin at a 25-degree angle to deliver the skin tightening treatment. The SubQ tip needles enter deeper and at a 75-degree angle to reach the subcutaneous layers of the skin; it then uses heat to destroy pockets of fat for a smoother, sleeker figure.
In a randomized, blinded clinical trial published in the Dermatologic Surgery Journal May 2015 issue, Macrene Alexiades, MD, Ph.D., Associate Clinical Professor at Yale University School of Medicine showed that a 100% response rate was seen among all subjects treated with these optimal treatment parameters. This study was actually the 6th peer reviewed paper demonstrating the effectiveness of Profound RF technology.
With the combination of skin tightening and cellulite and fat reduction, Profound RF may be your solution for that smoother, sleeker, and more alluring silhouette.
Renew MediSpa was also the first practice in New Hampshire to offer TruSculpt 3D, an advanced radiofrequency device that has the power to perform both body contouring and skin tightening. Using expertly delivered radiofrequency heat, TruSculpt 3D can reach deep under the skin to both eliminate stubborn pockets of fat and tighten the skin.
The radiofrequency heat then triggers the body’s healing processes – the same mechanisms that allow your body to heal. Collagen production is increased, and gradually, patients should see a skin tightening effect. With just one skin tightening session, our patients can look forward to a 25-35% reduction in fat and lax skin. It’s such a significant improvement that TruSculpt 3D can deliver one of the most dramatic improvements in a short amount of time, and completely noninvasively.
TruSculpt 3D can create circumferential body contouring in areas like the:
- Flanks- “Love Handles”
- Bra Fat
- Back Fat
- Submental- “Double Chin”
- And other problem areas
With TruSculpt 3D, patients can expect no downtime and a gradual-but visible-improvement over the course of 8-12 weeks.
The following table may help you determine whether Profound RF or TruSculpt 3D is a better choice for you. However, be assured that our staff are here to help you make that determination with a free consultation at any time.
Viora For the Body
Renew MediSpa also offers Viora skin tightening for the body to eliminate loose skin on various areas. Viora is a noninvasive radiofrequency device that heats the layers of the dermis to encourage collagen tightening and new collagen production.
- No downtime
- No anesthesia required; mild or zero discomfort
- Lower cost
- Great for younger clients, or those with minor laxity
Viora for the body is helpful when laxity and textural changes are mild. Moreover, Viora for the body is often used as a “maintenance” procedure. If used as the first line of defense against aging, it works best over a series of sessions to achieve the right effect, and we recommend maintenance sessions thereafter to keep the results on point.
Renew MediSpa is an aesthetics center that is devoted to offering patients a wide range of skin tightening treatment options. We understand that not all patients can or want to undergo a painful surgical procedure, which is why we’re passionate about helping patients choose the right nonsurgical skin tightening treatment from our diverse collection of procedures. We’ll map out your treatment plan with your anatomy, visual goals, and even your financial considerations in mind.
Frequently Asked Questions about Profound RF & TruSculpt 3D
The Profound RF microneedles deliver the exact desired temperature to an exact depth for the required time period, all while protecting the upper layers of skin from unwanted heat. The superficial layers of the skin also benefit due to the physical act of the microneedling.
We know from clinical research that when the dermis is heated to 67 degrees Celsius, collagen is “partially denatured.” This leads to neocollagenesis-a scientific term for new collagen synthesis by the skin’s fibroblasts. However, both temperature and time are important for stimulating collagen- with the “sweet spot” for skin tightening being 67 degrees Celsius for 4 seconds. With these specific parameters in mind, Profound RF’s technology creates the most optimal conditions for skin tightening.
The ideal patient for Profound RF has concerns about mild to moderate laxity (loose skin) +/- fine lines and wrinkles, or cellulite.
TruSculpt 3D is not a weight loss procedure; it’s skin tightening and fat removal for relatively healthy patients who want a sleeker, slimmer figures. Typical patients have a body mass index (BMI) of 38 or less.
Patients who are pregnant or have metallic implants, a pacemaker/internal defibrillator, or joint replacements in the treatment area cannot have the TruSculpt 3D or Profound RF procedure.
It takes approximately 15 minutes to numb the region to be treated with an injectable lidocaine. Thereafter, the procedure takes 45 to 60 minutes on average to perform, depending on the size of the area to be treated. At Renew MediSpa we also include a complimentary platelet rich plasma (PRP) application with our facial Profound RF treatments. Should you elect to have this done, additional time will be added to your appointment for your blood draw and preparation of the PRP.
At Renew MediSpa we book one-hour treatment sessions with TruSculpt 3D. In some cases, this is enough time to treat multiple areas.
How Many Treatments Do Patients Need Before They See Noticeable Results from the Profound RF Procedure?
It only takes one session to see remarkable results from Profound RF. Results begin to appear at about 2 weeks and continue for at least 3 months if not longer.
Injectable lidocaine is used to make the Profound RF procedure very comfortable. The lidocaine injection uses very tiny needles, but there is only a brief stinging sensation.
For TruSculpt 3D there is usually no anesthetic required.
The size of the area that can be treated is limited to some extent by the amount of lidocaine that can be used in a single session. Face and neck can certainly be treated in a single session. For the body, two 6” by 6” areas can be used for example to treat the backs of the thighs. An area larger than 12” by 12” will likely require breaking it down into 2 sessions.
This depends on the size of the region(s) of concern. Please consult with our staff to map out your treatment plan.
The following is expected after a Profound RF treatment:
- Some degree of bruising- we find that this resolves quickly (48 to 72 hours) when we apply platelet rich plasma
- Mild redness and brief tenderness to touch
- Mild to moderate swelling-best described as a “puffiness”-for up to 7 days. It is most noticeable in the first 48 hours and then gradually dissipates.
Makeup can be worn after 24 hours to cover bruising or any marks from injections/needling.
Exercise can resume after 48 hours or as directed by your provider.
At Renew MediSpa, we will provide you with the topical products you will need to expedite your healing and to refine your results from your Profound RF treatment.
In general, you should avoid products such as Retinol, Retin A, chemical peel solutions, acne topicals such as salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide and the like for 7 to 10 days. If you have questions about specific topical agent use after Profound RF feel free to discuss these with your provider.
At Renew MediSpa most of our Profound RF treatments are performed by Beth Wagner, RN. Beth has many years of experience in facial and body aesthetics and has been a trainer for similar devices for various manufacturers.
In the state of New Hampshire, aestheticians cannot perform any procedure that involves microneedling, including Profound RF.
Dr. Lisa Vuich is also available to perform Profound RF treatments.
