If you find yourself gently pulling back skin on your face when you look in the mirror—and wishing it would stay that way—you are not alone. Collagen and elastin production, which keeps our skin taught, slows down with age. Harmful UV (ultraviolet) rays of the sun are also part of the problem, damaging skin cells and breaking down the skin’s elasticity.
This loss of definition can happen almost anywhere on the body, but the most common areas are the face, neck, abdomen, and arms.
Medical Spa Treatments for Skin Laxity
If you are bothered by skin laxity, there are more options than ever to help tighten effectively tighten moderately lax or “crepey” skin on the face and neck. Depending on the results you are seeking, Dr. Rudderman’s Medical Spas offers a range of advanced treatments to help you safely and effectively improve your appearance and postpone the need for surgery. The services listed below are offered at both our Midtown and Alpharetta locations, unless otherwise stated.
Light Tightening and Lifting
Facials: Dry skin has less resilience. Facials are a safe and effective way to hydrate your skin. A licensed aesthetician will properly clean and exfoliate your skin and customize your facial to your individual skincare needs.
HydraFacials: At Dr. Rudderman Medical Spas, we also offer a HydraFacial treatment. This patented technology combines deep cleansing and exfoliation treatment with hydrating and moisturizing serums. It’s designed for all skin types, so even the most sensitive skin types can easily tolerate the procedure.
Microdermabrasion: Microdermabrasion is a popular, non-invasive skin resurfacing treatment. This modern technology allows for an even dispersion of crystals for exfoliation of your skin. The dead flaky skin cells are then suctioned away stimulating the lower layers of this skin increasing collagen and elastic. In about an hour, it can improve the appearance of sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, acne scarring, melasma, and other skin-related concerns and conditions.
Oxygen Infusion: Great for all skin types, oxygen therapy is the infusion of essential nutrients for healthier, brighter, and more youthful skin. Oxygen strengthens your skin’s elasticity and, among other benefits, can help to even out skin tone.
PRX Derm Perfexion: The PRX is a skin tightening treatment without peeling or shedding. It’s a new and improved formula of a trichloracetic acid (TCA) that contains both kojic acid and hydrogen peroxide. These additives help control the TCA which provides the rejuvenation of the skin at the dermal layer without the peeling properties of TCA. The treatment session takes about thirty minutes, with no needles, no pain, and no downtime. This new treatment is safe for all skin types.
Moderate Tightening and Lifting
THERMIsmooth® Face: ThermiSmooth Face uses radio frequency to heat the skin and stimulate natural production of collagen. This helps strengthen and thicken the skin to improve its overall quality and appearance. This treatment is performed using a specially designed thermistor-regulated hand piece, which delivers precise heating to the skin’s surface though a series of gentle treatments over 6-8 weeks. Patients often say it feels like receiving a warm massage. This service is offered in our Alpharetta location.
Pellevé: Pellevé is a new, non-surgical radiofrequency technology that stimulates collagen production to tighten skin and reduce facial wrinkles without surgery. It is FDA-approved for the non-invasive cosmetic correction of mild to moderate facial wrinkles for certain skin types. This treatment precisely heats the deep layers of your skin using advanced radio wave technology without damaging the top layer of your skin. This service is offered in our Midtown location.
Most Tightening and Lifting
Microneedling: Microneedling is a non-surgical system that stimulates your skin’s natural ability to produce collagen. It is a simple procedure lasting 10 to 20 minutes depending on the area to be treated. Microneedling uses miniature fine needles to create thousands of invisible, vertical perforations into the top layers of your skin. As a result, the skin naturally produces collagen and elastin to repair these perforations, minimizing wrinkles, reducing pore size, and improving skin texture.
VivaceTM Microneedling: Vivace is a skin tightening and resurfacing treatment that combines microneedling, radiofrequency (RF), and LED light therapy in a single treatment. Vivace can successfully treat multiple skin concerns, including scars and stretch marks, large pores, fine lines and wrinkles, redness and irritation, and more. Vivace is virtually painless, it is safe and effective for any skin type, and there is no downtime.
BroadBand Light® (BBL): BBL treatments deliver light energy deep into your skin to boost your body’s natural ability to heal and regenerate skin cells. The heat from the laser kills acne-causing bacteria, improving current acne and preventing future problems from forming. BBL can also help minimize the appearance of sun damage, fine lines, and wrinkles and even out skin tone and texture. It enhances your skin’s elasticity and pigmentation and may also stimulate collagen production. Any area of your body can be treated with BBL. This is a non-invasive and gentle procedure with virtually no downtime. This service is offered in our Midtown location.
NEW! Quanta Evo Light TM Laser: The Quanta Evo Light laser addresses critical skin concerns including wrinkles, scars, hyperpigmentation, and more using long, short, and light pulsed lasers. With customizable spot sizes, our licensed aestheticians can treat different areas to your specifications. This laser is also able to treat all skin types, making everyone a candidate for this treatment. This service is offered in our Alpharetta location.
Subnovii: Subnovii Advanced Plasma Technology by Cartessa™ is an FDA-cleared treatment known as plasma fibroblast therapy (or plasma skin resurfacing) that delivers low-frequency energy to target very specific areas of concern and rejuvenate the skin. Subnovii is a non-invasive treatment. The tip of the plasma device never actually touches the skin, but it’s the power of molecular physics that gives the treatment its magic.
