As we age, our skin starts to lose its elasticity, leading to sagging and wrinkles. This uneven skin appearance is caused by the loss of collagen due to the natural aging process. While there are several skin tightening treatments available on the market, not all of them are equally effective. In this blog post, we will discuss the most effective way to tighten and firm skin using the BTL Exilis Ultra treatment offered by The Spa and Laser Center in Virginia Beach
What is skin tightening treatment?
Prior to the availability of skin tightening treatments, individuals seeking to address sagging skin and wrinkles had limited options. Surgical procedures such as facelifts and body lifts were the main option for individuals with significant skin laxity or looseness. These procedures required general anesthesia and often involved extensive incisions and a prolonged recovery period. Additionally, these surgical procedures came with significant risks and complications, including scarring and infection.
Another option available before skin tightening treatments was the use of creams and lotions that claimed to improve skin elasticity and firmness. However, the effectiveness of these products was often limited, and they could not provide the same level of results as skin tightening treatments. Overall, the options available prior to skin tightening treatments were often limited, invasive and associated with significant risks and complications. Now skin tightening treatments are a more appealing option for many people.
Non-invasive skin tightening treatment that uses various technologies to stimulate collagen production and tighten the skin. These treatments are designed to improve the appearance of sagging skin, wrinkles, and fine lines, and enhance the overall texture and tone of the skin.
There are several types of skin tightening treatments available, including radio-frequency, ultrasound and laser. Each of these treatments are non-surgical and works by delivering heat energy to the deeper layers of the skin, causing collagen fibers to contract and tighten. The heat from the treatment also stimulates collagen production.
The most effective skin tightening treatment is BTL Exilis Ultra. It is safe, and effective and requires no downtime for the patient.
What is body contouring?
In addition to skin tightening, the BTL Exilis Ultra treatment also offers body contouring benefits. Body contouring is a procedure aimed at improving the shape, tone, and proportion of various parts of the body. It’s designed to remove excess skin and fat and to tighten and reshape underlying tissue to create a more aesthetically pleasing silhouette.
Body contouring procedures usually target areas such as the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, arms and breasts. In the past some of the most commonly performed body contouring procedures required surgery and anesthesia with a lengthy recovery period. They include liposuction, tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), breast lift or reduction, arm lift (brachioplasty), and thigh lift. With the availability of the BTL Exilis Ultra to treat some of these target areas, body contouring is a non-invasive procedure with less risk and no downtime. The heat energy delivered by the treatment can break down fat cells, which are then naturally eliminated by the body. This leads to a reduction in stubborn pockets of fat and a more contoured appearance.
