As a result of ageing, our skin becomes lax and starts to sag over time. Our collagen and HA levels drop and our bodies’ ability to replenish these stock levels diminishes.
In a bid to improve the signs of ageing, PHI Clinic offers a wide selection of skin tightening treatments, both surgical and non-surgical. We work with our patients to determine what treatment would achieve the best result, given their individual indications.
Harnessing ultrasound technology, Ultherapy works on the deeper structures of the face, neck and décolletage, stimulating collagen production. Because of the intensity of the treatment, results continue to come into fruition beyond the six month mark, after the initial session. Usually, patients will have the one treatment only, but if more sessions are required, patients can have further treatment.
Infini utilises radiofrequency and microneedling, triggering collagen production to plump and firm the skin. On average, patients will need 1-3 sessions of treatment to gain the desired result. There may be some slight swelling, itchiness and pin prick scabbing in the treated area for around about a week, but this is to be expected when penetrating the skin.
By heating the lower levels of the skin, via radiofrequency, the Velashape III is a desirable treatment for those wishing to address lax skin on the body, primarily the stomach area, legs and arms.
Cellulaze is a minimally-invasive solution, primarily designed to address cellulite, but can also address lax skin. A small incision roughly the size of your baby fingernail is made in order to introduce the laser fibre probe beneath the epidermis. It works to sever the septae (fibres) that pull on the skin’s surface, creating the dimpling effect of cellulite. The laser fibre is then directed towards the skin, heating it to around 40 degrees Celsius, triggering collagen production. Compression garments are then worn to accelerate the results.
Similar to the Cellulaze device, the Precision TX works specifically on the neck area, improving the appearance of sagging necklines, lack of definition and the commonly-referred-to “double chin”.
