Skin tightening

Our skin always gives away our age. The older we get, the more our skin will look loose, tired, wrinkled and lifeless. These phenomena are explained as changes occurring at the sub skin layer, which is in fact the scaffolding net of the skin. It becomes thin and loose and as a result of the natural ageing process – the skin droops.

Luckily for us, advanced technology suggests a solution for this problem as well, and the sooner we treat this issue, the sooner we will look good at present and young for our age in the future.
A new treatment – tightening

Recently, a new technology was developed with the objective of firming and tightening the skin, as well improving its texture.

The device employs a unique technique of radio waves (RF) which are emitted into the depth of the skin from three poles (in comparison with the devices from the previous generation) – this allows limiting of the beam’s radiation area to a defined zone, not touching undesired areas.

The device is approved by the Ministry of Health and the CE, and was in trial by Dr. Monica Elman, who, together with its manufacturer, has brought forth a new concept in treating wrinkles and aging skin.
Tightening of the skin, how does it work?

Radio waves emission causes heating of the sub skin tissue, which causes tightening of the existing collagen fibers and improvement of the blood flow and the metabolism. This building of the sub skin layer creates a stronger scaffolding layer for the skin, and the result is obvious – a tight skin, smooth and firm appearance, sparkling with gleam and vitality.

Who would benefit from a skin tightening treatment?

It is targeted for men and women alike, who suffer from loose and wrinkled skin, fine lines and bumps.

Whom is this treatment not suitable for?

Patients who have had a pacemaker implanted, patients who had been in an accident or a surgical treatment with severe scarring, and those who have platinum or other metal implants.

Tightening of the skin – treatment areas

Suitable for treatment in all areas of the body, including problematic areas such as the face, loose abdominal skin, loose skin on the arms, buttocks and thighs.

For those who suffer from cellulitis – the treatment assists in improving the condition of cellulitis and shrinking it.

The specifics of the treatment
* The treatment is comprised of an initial series of ten sessions
* It is important to keep the sequence of treatments
* Each treatment is 30 minutes to 1 hour long (according to the size of the treated area)
* Immediate return to your routine
* To preserve your results – it is recommended to undergo preservation treatments once every few weeks / months (as recommended by the staff).
Possible adverse side effects
No adverse side effects have been observed up to date in treatments using this system. However, a heating of the skin and the sub skin may cause one or more of the following:
* Local pain in the treated area
* Local redness
* Mild local swelling
* Scalding of the skin
* Local itching
* A first degree burn (rarely – a higher degree burn)
* Changes in pigmentation (usually disappearing within a few months)
* Local inflammation of the skin (rare)
* Local scarring (rare)

The innovative tightening treatment has so far yielded impressive results in various body types. The treatment tightens the skin, shapes and improves its look, and contributes to your general wellbeing.
At the Elman Clinic Network we are updated with state of the art technologies, and with the vast knowledge and experience accumulated by us, we have the ability to resolve and provide solutions for a large variety of problems.

Is RF skin tightening safe?

Of course! Skin tightening is performed with radio frequencies by the newest method. It is indeed new, but the use of radio frequencies in the field of medical aesthetics has been known for many years, and has been found to be completely safe. At Dr Elman’s clinics, the radio frequencies are used in the newest technology approach, where a process of smart heating of the local derma areas takes place. This causes creation of the new collagen fibres and strengthening of elastin, while protecting the adjacent regions, thus preventing any possible danger. This particular treatment has been around for years, and hundreds of thousands of happy customers have successfully undergone it worldwide. Moreover, the skin tightening technology we use at Dr Elman’s clinics is considered the most advanced and produces the most quality results, free from any side effects. This technology is recommended by Dr Elman after she examined other treatments that exist in the market of skin tightening

Is the treatment painful?

Skin tightening by means of radio frequencies is simply not considered painful. The treatment creates a localized heated area for a short period of time. The patient feels the heat in the area that is being tightened, but it isn’t painful.

Is there a “stay at home” recovery period following treatment?

There is no need for any recovery. The radio frequencies treatment for skin tightening does not heat the skin directly (the epidermis layer). The entire process takes place in the dermis layer, therefore there is no need in a recovery period. The treatment leaves no marks on the skin.

Who would benefit from an RF skin tightening?

RF skin tightening is suitable for any person who wishes to tighten their skin, to get rid of cellulite, loose skin, wrinkles, or other blemishes. The treatment offers a technologically advanced option, which is also gentle on the patient and returns the skin to its original tight state.

Why do you recommend undergoing this treatment at Dr Elman’s clinics?

RF skin tightening is suitable for blending with a variety of other technologies, such as Cryolipolysis, LPG – deep lymphatic massage, as well as other treatments. All treatments come within the approach Dr Elman has developed, based on her enormous experience in the area of dermatology, which allows us to integrate various treatments in the same procedure. Dr Elman’s expertise allows us to provide our patients with the best results with maximum safety and comfort.
