Scarless & Incisionless Skin Tightening Treatment in San Diego
At last, the long-awaited InMode FaceTite and BodyTite system for scarless skin tightening is now available at Changes Plastic Surgery & Spa. Finally, a proven effective way to tighten the skin without surgical incisions, painful recovery and extended downtime.
Dr. Gilbert Lee is excited to announce that Changes Plastic Surgery & Spa is the first in San Diego to be able to offer patients the most effective scarless option for sagging skin on the face and body. InMode skin tightening outperforms other incisionless methods such as cold and heat therapies, non-focused radio-frequency modalities, ultrasound based and injection lipolysis. These systems claim to tighten skin, but fall short of the mark.
Furthermore, having the most experience with the scarless skin tightening system in the region, Dr. Lee is an Inmode Luminary Instructor and teaches and trains other physicians how to sculpt with the Inmode devices. No one offers more experience with incisionless skin tightening as Dr. Gilbert Lee at Changes Plastic Surgery & Spa.
How Inmode RF Skin Tightening Works
The Inmode RF system utilizes Radio-Frequency Assisted Lipolysis (RFAL), providing surgery-like results with a highly controlled radiofrequency energy that allows skin and subcutaneous tissue to contract through heat application. The cannula is inserted into the skin via an insertion port the size of a small 18 gauge needle. The cannula tip features a plastic tip to prevent any accidental skin perforation. The device then creates an electrical current between the external electrode and the cannula to develop a contained thermal field. The device uses precise temperature control to coagulate fat and other soft tissue in the targeted area. Heating the papillary dermis and fibrous septa around the fat clusters to a temperature of 70 degrees Celsius causes collagen to contract significantly, producing the desired tight skin. Dr. Lee likens the procedure to “shrink wrapping”.
RFAL is also completely safe. The internal and external electrodes ensure precise temperature control, resulting in a thermal field that effectively coagulates soft tissues and tightens the skin without causing harm.
Patients can now achieve dramatic aesthetic outcomes without the scalpel or scars using novel FaceTite & BodyTite procedures.
The decision to undergo cosmetic surgery can be daunting for some, and before now, there was no real effective method of tightening the face and neck without surgery. With FaceTite, we can now deliver surgical results to patients without surgery. Not only can you see significant improvement in face and neck skin laxity, the results are more natural appearing than surgery.
- Mini-Facelift results in one quick treatment with less patient downtime.
- Unmatched skin contraction by simultaneously contracting the internal tissue and external skin’s surface.
- Safe and Effective
FaceTite is performed in the Changes Plastic Surgery & Spa surgical suite under local anesthetic and one procedure is sufficient. Expect some swelling and bruising post procedure. FaceTite results appear over weeks and get better with continued skin contraction for up to one year.
EmbraceRF is a fusion of FaceTite and Fractora which combines the shrink-wrapping of FaceTite radio-frequency delivered beneath the skin surface and Fractora skin tightening for a complete nonsurgical and scarless facelift.
“Using RFAL, I am able to offer my patients a no scar option never before available. I feel an incredible early result not previously achievable by any means… even with much more extensive surgery.” – Dr. Gilbert Lee
The signs of aging are not isolated to sagging facial skin. Aging results in diminished skin tone and weakening of the subcutaneous tissue from a breakdown in collagen and elastin production. The overall effect is that skin falls away from the body and downward. This loss of skin and underlying tissue quality shows in sagging upper arms, excess skin along the bra line, abdominal skin laxity and draping skin on the thighs.
BodyTite provides superior skin tightening with RFAL. Dr. Diane Duncan, an early pioneer of the Inmode system, performed a clinical study of 12 BodyTite patients. When evaluated at 6 weeks the results showed 25.8% skin surface area reduction which further increased to 36.4% at 1 year. These studies show this technology is far superior to Smart Lipo, laser assisted liposuction, and traditional radio frequency devices.
Imagine no more bat wings, fewer tummy rolls, tighter thighs and a smooth upper body silhouette. These can be yours with BodyTite at Changes Plastic Surgery & Spa.
FaceTite and BodyTite must be performed by a skilled professional, and like all medical devices or tools they are only as good as the person using them. Dr.Gilbert Lee is a renowned plastic surgeon and body sculptors bringing this new technology to Southern California. With this new system the possibilities are endless for scarless skin tightening.
Fractora Skin Resurfacing
Changes Plastic Surgery & Spa knows that one of the greatest concerns for patients is the appearance of their skin. Wrinkles, saggy skin and poor skin quality can lead to loss of confidence and being self-conscious. No matter how diligent your skincare and sun protection efforts, internal changes within the body will eventually appear in the form of fine lines, wrinkles, and loss of elasticity. Fractora uses radio frequency energy delivered through fractionated micro-pins to resurface, and tighten the skin and is one of the newest non-surgical solutions for aging and acne scarred skin.
How Fractora Works
We use Fractora for skin resurfacing on the face and body areas that exhibit wrinkles, discoloration or acne scarring. For our patients who need just a little skin tightening, Fractora can be used for skin firming as a non-surgical neck lift, to tighten the skin under the eyes and for sagging skin on the face. Improved tone, texture and tightening can be achieved with the Fractora and you can look eight year younger in eight weeks. Visible results are seen immediately, but typically the most noticeable results are noted approximately six to eight weeks after the procedure, with improvements continuing up to three to six months after treatment. Immediately after treatment you can expect to see micro lesions and slight redness for up to one week depending on your individual treatment.
Younger skin in just eight weeks can be yours. If you would like to know if FaceTite, BodyTite, Fractora or scarless skin tightening is right for you, please contact us below or call us at 858-720-1440. View our blog for more Scarless News.
