Do you have thin or loose skin or an unwanted overhang of skin around your tummy? Are you wanting to improve your skin’s tone and laxity without a painful recovery and lengthy downtime?
Thankfully, there are skin tightening treatments that can improve the quality of your skin and stimulate collagen production without invasive skin removal surgeries.
At Cosmos Clinic, we offer two skin tightening options: Vaser or Renuvion/J-Plasma. Both these skin tightening procedures help in rejuvenation of the skin’s surface and addressing some of the more common problem areas. Here, we take a look at the two skin tightening treatments.
Skin tightening with Vaser
The Vaser machine stimulates collagen production and skin tightening through the use of ultrasound. The ultrasound energy generates heat which is distributed into the targeted area under the skin through a probe. This causes a contraction of the collagen fibres and tightening of the skin in a more effective way than traditional liposuction.
Vaser is a gentler cosmetic surgery procedure than liposuction as it preserves the fibrous tissue that connects the skin cells to the underlying muscle. This tissue contains collagen and elastin proteins which are responsible for the skin laxity and its ability to ‘snap’ back.
As a gentle cosmetic surgery treatment, side effects are minimal, the recovery time is reduced and patients experience less post-operative pain than some of the more invasive surgical options.

Skin tightening with Renuvion
Renuvion or J-Plasma is your second skin tightening treatment option and the latest to hit the cosmetic and plastic surgery market. This skincare procedure is used in conjunction with Vaser and is being talked about as the new “facelift”.
Renuvion uses heat and radiofrequency energy to produce a controlled burn under the deeper layers of the skin. This stimulates the production of new collagen and tightening of the skin.
The new FDA-approved device also helps to minimise any visible irregularities typically treated by a dermatologist or with laser treatments such as pigmentation, sun damage and aging.
What makes Renuvion so appealing is that the collagen production and skin tightening continues to improve for up to 6 months post-treatment.
As Renuvion can produce exceptional skin tightening results, it is a great option for those who don’t want to undergo invasive cosmetic and plastic surgery procedures such as a tummy tuck or arm lift after significant weight loss or simply aging.

While the extent of the skin tightening will depend on the quality and elasticity of the skin, both Vaser and Renuvion can visibly improve the appearance of the skin’s surface without a lengthy or painful recovery.
