Time takes it toll on all of us. It is estimated that we lose up to 1% of our natural collagen each year. With aging, comes loose skin. Eventually.
Often the effects hit us even faster from frequent recreational sun-exposure, environmental pollutants, weight gain, weight loss, illness, stress, and genetics.
You look in the mirror and start to notice a new wrinkle or a few new ones, a new skin fold or several, sagging around the jowls, loose and wrinkled skin of the neck or other body areas, and you wonder…can anything really help me without having to have surgery?
At the Dermatology Laser Center & MediSpa, Dr. Snyder offers his patients two simple solutions.Two state-of-the-art, safe, gentle, non-invasive, non-surgical radiofrequency technologies to tighten and help contour loose skin of the face and body.
Dr. Snyder’s Approach
Dr. Snyder offers you treatments with SublimeTM, and ExilisTM. Depending on your individual skin condition, these treatments can be used individually, or may be combined for even greater, enhanced results.
SublimeTM is a breakthrough combination of bi-polar radiofrequency and infrared light treatment designed to provide controlled depth heating within the inner dermal layer of your skin to stimulate new collagen production and to shorten and contract existing collagen fibers, resulting in tightening of the skin as well as reduction of wrinkles and improvement in overall skin contour.
ExilisTM uses focused radiofrequency technology with controlled heating to improve loose skin and smooth wrinkles. This technology causes the inner dermal collagen supporting structure to become remodeled, whereby there is stimulation and strengthening of the collagen network leading to skin tightening and improved skin texture.
With both SublimeTM and ExilisTM, treatments are comfortable, non-invasive, and non-surgical, with no anesthesia needed and virtually no-downtime after treatments. Patients return to normal activities immediately after treatment.
We use SublimeTM treatments mostly for areas limited to the face and neck for patients with mild to moderate wrinkles and mild to moderate skin laxity, in a series of 4 comfortable treatments, each spaced approximately one month apart. Most patients will see gradual and cumulative results throughout their SublimeTM treatments, taking from 90-120 days to see the full effect of the reduction of fine lines, tighter skin and a smoother, natural complexion.
We use ExilisTM treatments not only for areas of loose and wrinkled skin of the face and neck, but also for areas of the abdomen, back, arms and legs. Not only will ExilisTM treatments help mild to moderate wrinkling and mild to moderate skin laxity, but we have seen patients with greater skin sagging/skin laxity show improvement with this technology as well. ExilisTM is especially effective when combined with fat melting and body contouring in these cases.
Scientifically proven and clinically tested, ExilisTM uses radiofrequency technology to stimulate and strengthen collagen, leading to more youthful, firmer looking skin. Depending on the degree of skin laxity, typically patients are treated in 4-6 comfortable treatment sessions, each spaced 7-14 days apart. No anesthesia is required, there is no downtime, and optimal results are usually seen within 90-120 days after completion of the treatments.
In our experience, we have seen even greater results of skin tightening and wrinkle reduction in our patients who have combined both the SublimeTM and ExilisTM sessions when treating the face and neck.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Snyder will evaluate your specific skin condition and situation and will recommend which procedure will be the most beneficial for you to achieve optimal skin tightening.
