Skin Tightening

Over time, the human body begins to produce less collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid – compounds that keep skin resilient. Without this substructure, skin becomes thinner, dryer, and less elastic.

It sags into wrinkles and folds. Contemporary skin tightening treatment at Vanguard Aesthetic Clinic in Calgary, helps to restore skin to a more youthful condition.

Is Skin Tightening for You?

Laser skin tightening is a non-invasive, minimally invasive method of firming skin on the body.  Although it can be done anywhere on the body, the stomach, neck, face, and jawline are popular locations.

It is most effective for adults between the ages of 30 and 65, but even those who do not yet exhibit visible drooping may benefit from it. Surgery may be a preferable alternative if your skin is really lax.

Non-invasive skin tightening can be used to treat laxity on the:

  • Abdomen
  • Neck
  • Chest
  • Knees

How Skin Tightening Works

Dr. Folake Pepple and the Vanguard Aesthetic Clinic team are excited to offer Venus Legacy™ for skin tightening.

This is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure. A uniform flow of radiofrequency energy is delivered with a handheld applicator. It penetrates deeper layers of heating subdermal collagen, without harm to the surface skin.

The resulting thermal reaction tightens skin in two ways:

  • First, it causes the skin to contract, for immediate improvement in laxity
  • Second, radiofrequency energy stimulates the body to produce fresh collagen. Skin gets thicker, firmer, and more elastic over the next several months, as collagen builds

Frequently Asked Questions

This device heats tissues under the surface skin uniformly by combining multipolar radiofrequency (RF) energy with pulsed electromagnetic fields.

This stimulates the body’s natural healing processes, boosting the amount of collagen and elastin fibres that thicken and tighten the skin and breaking down fat cells.

Treatment also promotes healthy circulation and lymphatic drainage. For efficient treatment and successful outcomes, proprietary magnetic pulse (VariPulse) technology allows RF energy to reach deep skin layers.

Though some differences may be noted immediately following the first treatment, the most significant results are usually evident after the second or third session. When it comes to this procedure, or any other type of invasive or non-invasive facial cosmetic treatment, patience is essential. It will take time!

Wear sunscreen every day in the weeks leading up to the skin tightening operation, especially if it’s on your face or neck. Avoid facial peels and chemical treatments in the month leading up to the visit, and arrive with bare skin, meaning no makeup or skincare products.

A skin-tightening surgery is safe for most people. You are more likely to achieve the best results if you:

  • Are at a healthy weight
  • Maintain a nutritious diet
  • Quit smoking
  • Consume only a small amount of alcohol
  • Protect your skin from the sun
  • Have a small amount of sagging skin

Anyone who is pregnant, has a skin illness, or is on certain drugs should avoid having their skin tightened.

After the initial laser skin tightening procedure, you should notice some tightening of the skin. With each consecutive treatment, the effects will become more pronounced.

You won’t need much recovery time because no incisions are needed and the entire process is done with a laser. Minor swelling or redness may occur for a few days following the operation, which is typical and should diminish on its own.

The effects are not permanent, but they can last for several years. You’ll most likely need to schedule maintenance appointments on a regular basis.

At Vanguard Aesthetic Clinic, every patient gets a treatment plan personalized to his or her needs. Usually, a series of weekly Forma sessions are recommended for optimal skin tightening.

Because results are the product of your own natural collagen, improvement is long-lasting. Some patients choose periodic re-treatment to maintain firm, healthy skin.
