Would you like to achieve tighter skin without getting a facelift or invasive surgery? We can help you get closer to your beauty goals with the help of non-invasive and minimally invasive cosmetic treatments at The MedSpa at Burlington Plastic Surgery. You can rely on our team of experts who will listen to your concerns and develop a customized treatment plan for you. We are proud to offer some of the most advanced cosmetic technologies, including Forma/Forma Plus, Radiofrequency Microneedling with Morpheus8 and Morpheus8 Body, FaceTite, AccuTite, and BodyTite.
At The MedSpa at Burlington Plastic Surgery, we offer several non-invasive or minimally-invasive ways to reduce wrinkles and tighten the skin. All of these treatments involve using radiofrequency energy to stimulate new collagen production, with each method targeting different depths of the skin and underlying tissue. A full consultation with Dr. Jessica Shih will determine whether you are a good candidate for these non-surgical treatments to rejuvenate your appearance.
Forma is a non-invasive skin tightening treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to improve the appearance of aging, wrinkled skin. This gentle treatment is performed by heating your tissues with radiofrequency energy, which causes collagen production and contraction. This process results in tighter, smoother skin.
During the treatment, you may feel mildly warm sensations, but the treatment does not require any anesthesia. A typical treatment session takes about 30 minutes. You will see gradual results and achieve tighter skin over the next three to four months.
There are many reasons to choose Forma skin tightening: it’s painless, there is no downtime required, and you may begin to see results after just one treatment session. However, we generally recommend a series of six treatments spaced one week apart, so this treatment will require more treatment sessions than some of the minimally invasive options. Additionally, Forma is safe for most skin types and can be used on any area of the body.
Forma Plus uses heat to stimulate the production of collagen in the deeper layers of the skin. We recommend this treatment if you want to tighten large areas of skin and improve the appearance of cellulite at the same time. Forma Plus is a larger version of the original Forma treatment, and it includes bipolar technology for deeper penetration and better results.
A Forma Plus skin tightening treatment is performed using a handpiece that emits radiofrequency energy. This energy penetrates deep into your tissues, causing collagen fibers to contract. The result is tighter, firmer skin with improved texture.
Forma Plus is safe for almost all skin types and requires very minimal downtime, making it ideal for those who want to achieve younger-looking skin without surgery or extensive recovery periods. We recommend a series of six treatments for optimal results. After receiving this treatment, you can expect to notice:
This advanced fractional treatment uses radiofrequency energy to create micro-channels in the skin and significantly lift, tone, and tighten your skin. The micro-channels created during the treatment stimulate your body’s natural healing response and eliminate the appearance of blemishes, wrinkles, scarring, and other imperfections.
During the treatment, we will use a unique microneedling device that creates tiny micro-injuries in the skin and applies radiofrequency energy deeper into the skin for more powerful results. These injuries will trigger natural collagen production, which helps tighten and improve the appearance of your skin.
Morpheus8 Body allows for tightening at a deeper level to provide skin tightening to areas such as the abdomen, flanks, area above the knees and more. Compared to Morpheus8 that is well tolerated with topical freezing (numbing cream) alone, the microneedles of Morpheus8 Body reach up to a depth of 7mm to release radiofrequency energy, which often requires local freezing to the area for comfort.
RF Microneedling with Morpheus8 and Morpheus8 Body is highly effective when it comes to treating a variety of skin conditions due to aging and skin damage. The treatment works by delivering radiofrequency energy deep into the dermis, where it stimulates collagen production and elastin synthesis. This leads to improved skin tone, texture, and firmness. The number of sessions varies from person to person, however, patients generally require three sessions to see the best results.
Morpheus8 can be used on all skin types but is most effective on those with mild-to-moderate wrinkles, laxity, or scarring. It is also FDA-cleared for addressing a variety of cosmetic issues.
FaceTite, AccuTite and BodyTite are three treatmetns that that uses radiofrequency technology from beneath the skin to tighten the skin, eliminate unwanted fat, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. This minimally-invasive treatment requires little downtime and produces dramatic results without the need for large scars. Patients see results once the swelling goes down after just one treatment. As the radiofrequency energy is applied subdermally, local anesthesia and a tiny incision is required for the treatment to be performed by the plastic surgeon herself. We highly recommend this treatment for patients with loose skin around the jawline and neck area.
FaceTite is a non-surgical facelift treatment that uses radiofrequency technology to tighten the skin, eliminate unwanted fat, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. FaceTite is an excellent choice for achieving tighter, smoother skin without going under the knife. The procedure is minimally invasive, requires minimal downtime, and results in little to no scarring. Plus, it delivers long-lasting results, and you may see improvements for years after your treatment.
If you have mild to moderate skin laxity, you may be a good candidate for a FaceTite treatment. The treatment can visibly tighten your appearance and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. If you have severe skin laxity, then we may recommend other solutions such as a facelift.
FaceTite is highly recommended for treating the following issues:
Similar to FaceTite, AccuTite skin tightening treatment uses radiofrequency assisted lipolysis, which heats the deeper layers of the skin while melting away unwanted fat cells. The heat also helps to stimulate collagen production, resulting in firmer, more youthful-looking skin. AccuTite is ideal for treating small areas with loose skin.
AccuTite is highly recommended for treating the following issues:
Similar to FaceTite and AccuTite, Bodytite is a minimally-invasive skin tightening treatment that uses radiofrequency energy applied from under the skin to tighten the skin in your body such as abdomen, waist, arms and thighs. BodyTite works by stimulating collagen production, which helps tighten loose skin. The result is a smoother overall appearance with improved body contour.
The treatment is effective at tightening loose skin and improving the appearance of cellulite, and works well to tighen skin following fat reduction treatments such as Coolsculpting and liposuction. BodyTite is safe for all skin types and requires minimal downtime compared to surgery.
This treatment can be used to improve a variety of areas of the body, including:
Skin tightening with FaceTite, AccuTite or BodyTite offers long-term benefits that can last for years. This treatment is ideal for tightening and improving the appearance of any area on the body, large or small, and can also be performed with other procedures depending on your anatomy and aesthetic goals.
