Who doesn’t dream of a tighter, younger looking face?
As we grow older, the cumulative effects of gravity, genetics, and other factors cause facial structures to descend and facial skin to sag. Fortunately, there are now ways to regain that youthful look through skin-tightening and this unsurprisingly has become one of the most sought-after treatments today.
Many methods for skin tightening have been developed throughout the years. Since its introduction, a monopolar radiofrequency energy-based device has revolutionised the management of skin tightening.
At the other end of the spectrum, ultrasound energy has proved to be another significant non-invasive skin lifting and tightening treatment which gives outstanding results.
However, while the results of these two technologies were impressive, patients’ experience of discomfort during the treatments drove the development of alternatives.
That alternative in its most recent form is the Duo Lift Up programme, which combines monopolar radiofrequency with ultrasound energy and has equipped dermatologists with the ability to offer effective results with no downtime, safe and pain-free treatment.
The Duo Lift Up programme works by delivering radiofrequency energy deep in the skin without injuring the outer skin. The RF energy helps tighten tissue and stimulates collagen, resulting in facial contouring in a fast and comfortable treatment. It’s the ultrasound waves that enable radiofrequency to deliver more energy over a shorter period of time, which means patients can be treated quicker and, more importantly, without pain.
For several months following treatment, you’ll see dramatically tighter, firmer and smoother skin.
With 2017 right around the corner, all those New Year’s resolutions are just waiting to be made. Don’t you want this to be your most fabulous year to date?
