What are the options for skin tightening?
Many patients ask, which are the options to obtain skin tightening? There are two options. One is the Vaser machine. The Vaser machine uses ultrasound to heat up a hot rod, which we use under the skin to produce a controlled burn which stimulates collagen production and skin tightening. The other option is there Renuvion or J-Plasma, which is used in conjunction with a Vaser machine. The J-Plasma uses heat and cold to produce a controlled burn under the skin, production of collagen and skin tightening. The collagen production and the skin tightening can continue for up to six months. But for patients who don't want a tummy tuck or normally it's a great option. And in some cases we have seen exceptional skin tightening.
