The Derm Institute offers non-invasive skin procedures clinically proven to tighten and contour the skin by stimulating the production of collagen. We use proven radiofrequency treatments to tighten sagging skin around the eyes, jaw, and neckline. Radiofrequency energy penetrates into the skin, causing contraction and stimulating the growth of new collagen over time. The result is tighter, firmer, younger appearing skin. Radiofrequency energy works to better define facial and jawline features, as well as smoothing and sculpting of unsightly bulges and wrinkles on the body.
The Derm Institute demonstrates the Exilis Elite procedure for eyelid tightening.
What is the downtime?
There is no downtime for these procedures. The areas feel mildly warm for a short time after treatment, but patients resume regular activities immediately.
How many treatments do I need?
Some people see results immediately after just one treatment. For many patients, a series of treatments are recommended for optimal improvement.
Tightening of Jawline and Neck
Tightening of the Upper and Lower Eyelids
Does it hurt?
We believe strongly in patient comfort. Unlike some products on the market, the state-of-the-art devices employed by The Derm Institute do not require anesthesia or pain medication. The procedures are sometimes described as feeling like a warm massage.
Can this be combined with other cosmetic procedures?
Dr. Chiu often combines radiofrequency treatments with other cosmetic procedures such as wrinkle relaxing agents like Botox or Xeomin, or dermal fillers such as Juvederm or Restylane. We will tailor and customize the best treatment plan for you, based on your skin type, age, and your cosmetic goals.
