Regardless of your gender or race, facial skin sagging is inevitable. When gravity and skin laxity take effect, wrinkles and volume loss will eventually you look older and worn down.
The good news is that you don’t have to accept the impact of your body’s natural aging process. At the Key Laser Institute in Portland, Dr. Douglas Key can address reduced collagen levels and structural support. With multiple skin tightening procedures at our disposal, we can customize your anti-aging treatment to rejuvenate your facial contour and restore your youthful beauty.
Here are four procedures we offer that can enhance your appearance with no incisions, sutures, or downtime.
ThermiSmooth employs innovative technology and gentle radiofrequency energy to tighten sagging skin on hard-to-treat areas like the mouth, cheeks, eyes, and décolletage. It stimulates long-term collagen structure to naturally smooth and tighten the skin naturally.
ThermiSmooth Body applies radiofrequency heat across the treatment area with a temperature sensor that allows us to safely monitor energy delivery and regulate skin temperature. Maintaining the desired temperature simultaneously tightens tissue, reduces excess fat, and triggers collagen production.
We offer ThermiSmooth treatments in three 15-minute to one-hour sessions, depending on the treatment area. The treatments feel warm and comfortable, and you can resume your regular routine directly following each session.
Ultherapy is a non-invasive skin tightening procedure for the face, neck, and décolletage. It employs micro-pulses of ultrasound energy to penetrate the deepest layers of tissue and stimulate collagen production for skin repair.
Ultherapy lasts one to two hours, depending on your desired treatment areas. Post-treatment side effects vary from patient to patient. The most common side effects are swelling and maybe bruising.
In the months after Ultherapy, increased collagen production will deliver a natural tightening effect. Optimal results will emerge as early as two to three months and continue to improve for six to nine months. There is minimal recovery and little to no downtime.
ThermiTight offers a crucial breakthrough in treating loose skin on the lower face, under the chin, neck, abdomen, arms, back, and thighs. The procedure employs precise radiofrequency heat energy paired with thermal image monitoring to provide safe and effective treatment.
ThermiTight is effective as a stand-alone skin tightening treatment or combined with actual fat aspiration for tightening and fat removal.
Using radiofrequency technology, ThermiTight produces heat under the skin to promote collagen production. This increase in collagen production creates a tighter, smoother skin presence.
Dr. Key uses a small needle to dispense radiofrequency to the dermis. As a result, ThermiTight can provide safe and controlled heat stimulation and increase collagen levels. In addition, the probe allows for real-time temperature monitoring and precise heat generation beneath the skin’s surface.
4. Genius RF
Genius RF is the next generation of radiofrequency technology. This innovation minimizes pain while offering our Portland patients skin smoothness to resolve various signs of aging and acne scarring.
Genius RF combines two collagen-producing technologies to tighten targeted skin – microneedling and radiofrequency energy.
Microneedling offers collagen-inducing benefits with several tiny needles causing micro-wounds to trigger natural healing. A small channel will determine your skin’s healing needs with each entry point. This natural response prompts collagen production to repair targeted skin.
Once Genius RF needles penetrate your skin, they deliver energy to underlying skin tissues. This process will merge with existing collagen to create a smoother, more uniform skin surface. It will also promote increased collagen production to continue skin tightening in the future.
