Patients of the San Francisco, CA area who are faced with skin laxity concerns on the face or body often believe plastic surgery is the only method available to see noticeable results. Thanks to continued advances in the medical and dermatological fields, patients can now choose from non-invasive skin tightening services at Aura Skin Spa. Our dermatologist, Dr. Anthony Waechter, is pleased to offer Thermage treatment for skin tightening on the body and Pelleve for tightening the skin on the face.
Thermage for the body
Instead of undergoing tummy tucks or liposuction, patients with minor areas of excess skin on the body can instead choose Thermage. Thermage is a specialized device that administers radio frequency energy that can stimulate the development of collagen and elastin for smoother, tighter skin. While this device is best used on larger areas of the body, patients may also use Thermage for treating areas around the eyes, face, and neck. Thermage is non-invasive, safe, and effective at tightening and smoothing the skin, and may even be used by patients who are bothered by the appearance of cellulite. This treatment can be provided in numerous sessions for increasingly noticeable changes to the appearance of the body.
Pelleve for the face
Pelleve is a laser treatment that uses radio frequency energy to penetrate deep into the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles caused by increasing skin laxity on the face. This comfortable and effective treatment provides a non-invasive, non-surgical way of treating skin sagging, fine lines, and wrinkles that may result in an aging appearance. It can be used on specific areas such as the:
- Sagging skin along the jowls
- Wrinkles that develop around the mouth
- Nasolabial folds
- Forehead folds
- Crow’s feet (wrinkles present on the outer edges of the eyes)
- Excess skin on the upper eyelid
