Skin Tightening in Santa Monica
KAO Aesthetics offers a collection of aesthetic medical treatments and devices to target skin laxity on the face and body.
Laxity develops due to various reasons, from natural aging to weight fluctuations to environmental stressors. Aesthetic skin tightening treatments allow for the constriction of the skin and tissue by promoting collagen and elastin through the delivery of heat.
Any form of heat will effectively tighten skin and tissue. The question is, by how much? Various aesthetic tools and devices are available to target your specific needs.
Skin tightening effectively treats facial and body skin laxity.
Tighten Your Skin With Results-Driven Cosmetic Techniques
For decades, significant skin tightening was only available through surgical means (for both the face and body). This is no longer the case as non-surgical and minimally invasive techniques and devices have experienced unprecedented improvement.
Radiofrequency Skin Tightening
Radiofrequency skin tightening uses electromagnetic energy waves to heat the dermis (the deeper layers of the skin), stimulating collagen and causing the tissues to contract.
SkinFinity RF is a radiofrequency skin tightening device that targets laxity on the face and body. This customizable radiofrequency treatment offers the precise and even application of energy.
NuEra® Tight With Focal RF® tightens the skin, helps melt subcutaneous fat (accelerates lipolysis), and reduces the appearance of cellulite on the abdomen, flanks, buttocks, back, thighs, mouth, cheeks, jaw, and neck — without requiring any downtime. With personalized treatments, this radiofrequency device offers fast and effective skin tightening and fat breakdown and targets both superficial and deep tissues. Optimal results are achieved when the treatment is done on a weekly basis.
Morpheus8™ RF by InMode® uses fractional radiofrequency technology combined with microneedling to remodel tissue in the face and body. By penetrating RF energy deep into the dermis, collagen and elastin levels are increased, creating a tighter and smoother skin structure.
The Morpheus8™ has two tips that target different depths of the skin. This allows the treatment to be tailored for surface-level refinement as well as deep tissue remodeling.
Microneedling is a form of CIT (collagen induction therapy) that creates thousands of micro-wounds in the skin to stimulate a natural healing response. The body attacks and heals these wounds by creating significant collagen levels, which helps tighten the skin naturally.
Microneedling can also be done to lift and tighten the eye area when there is a lack of elasticity. This type of skin tightening is preferable as radiofrequency and laser treatments are not usually suitable for the delicate eye area.
Microneedling can be performed alone or in combination with radiofrequency (Morpheus8™) or PRP therapy to enhance results further.
CO2 Laser Treatment
CO2 laser skin tightening uses pulsed light energy to penetrate and injure the top layers of the skin (and even deeper into the dermis). Ablative laser skin tightening uses various wavelengths to reach the underlying tissue and stimulate collagen and elastin production. This allows for tighter, stronger skin that is more durable.
