Explore Your Skin Tightening Options

These non-surgical options do not involve incisions or excessive downtime. Still, they are simple skincare procedures using methods such as Exilis Elite, Exilis Protégé Intima, Ultherapy, NovaThreads, and Mint PDO threads 

It’s scientifically proven that younger skin produces a lot of collagen and elastin. These are protein elements that develop the skin structure and provide elasticity for the skin. Though as you grow older, you may need to have a healthier diet and a stress-free life for you to have skin that’s healthy (tight). And even that might not be enough. 

There are two main categories of non-surgical skin care treatment. Firstly, there is an in-office skin tightening procedure. This treatment predominantly involves using options such as Exilis Elite, Ultherapy, and, Nova Threads & Mint PDO threads. You can get these services at Old Town Spa, which has state-of-the-art technology to ensure your desired outcome of a younger, radiant, and glowing skin.  

Exilis Elite Skin Tightening is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment that uses heat to tighten loose skin. The radio-frequency medical device concentrates high energy in a given section of the skin. Furthermore, the device allows for the high heat energy to be delivered safely and controlled to stimulate collagen production. The treatment is usually only done on the following areas; eyes, face, and neck.  

Ultherapy is a unique and exciting skin treatment procedure that helps tighten the skin by transmitting concentrated ultrasound energy beneath the skin surface. If you have severe skin laxity, you may need to use Ultherapy. It is a recommended treatment that can help you have younger-looking skin. The procedure helps in the production of collagen through the process of neocollagenesis. The process allows for the creation of new collagen, and the existing collagen is renewed. Usually, the procedure takes at least 60-90 minutes. 

Another predominantly used treatment is Nova Threads and Mint PDO threads. These hypodermic needles have absorbable polydioxanone sutures. The needles play an essential role in the non-surgical face-lifting procedure. In fact, NovaThreads and Mint PDO threads are some of the safest foreign materials you can insert into your body.   

When the needles are implanted in the treatment area, Mint POD stimulates the skin to produce collagen. The threads tighten the skin and age lines around the jawline and the neck area. NovaThreads and Mint PDO threads dissolve in the body for about four to six months after your non-surgical face lifting session. 

Secondly, there are at-home treatments such as ultrasound. This treatment uses ultrasound waves deep in the skin tissue to stimulate collagen production. The device used for this type of treatment is expensive and only consistency of its use can bear significant visible results. 

Here at Old Town Med Spa, led by Drs. Nael Gharbi and Shazel Gharbi, we provide a variety of these treatments. If you need these kinds of services, it would be in your best interest to contact us through our website.  You can also call us at 312-313-0330.
