Non-Surgical Skin Tightening
Nonsurgical Skin Tightening: BTL Aesthetics Exilis Protégé
Also known as laser skin tightening or radiofrequency skin tightening
Skin tightening procedures have become very popular in recent years because they provide a nonsurgical alternative to more invasive procedures for correcting skin laxity and improving skin quality. Protégé uses unique radio frequency energy to gently and safely tighten the skin on the face, neck, décolletage (neck), arms, elbows, hands, abdomen, legs and knees. The procedure has no downtime, is painless, and it feels like a warm massage as the energy wand is applied in circles and waves over the skin.
Protégé is appropriate as a first-time skin tightening treatment and also works great for patients wanting to maintain and improve the results of previous skin tightening procedures with higher-power energy devices such as Thermage and Ultherapy. A series of treatments may be required for desired results.
When to consider Nonsurgical Skin Tightening:
If you have mild to moderate loose skin on your face, neck, arms or abdomen If you have residual skin laxity after an operative procedure If you would like an improvement in the quality of your skin If you are unable (or unwilling) to undergo a more invasive, surgical procedure to correct skin laxity
Many people who consider nonsurgical skin tightening also consider laser skin resurfacing, chemical peels and facelift.
