Advanced Skin Tightening


Advanced skin tightening in Jupiter, FL, helps patients get firmer and tighter skin for a younger-looking appearance. It can improve mild to moderate skin laxity anywhere on the face, neck, or body without the need for surgery. Advanced skin tightening creates a notable lifting effect and requires little to no downtime.

At Refresh Palm Beach Medical Aesthetics, we offer cutting-edge Emtone and VelaShape treatments for advanced skin tightening. Each of these options features its own one-of-a-kind process for achieving the desired results.

Why Undergo Advanced Skin Tightening?

Let’s face it—everybody hates having loose skin. It makes people look older than they really are, creating wrinkles in the skin of the neck and the face. The weight of loose skin also makes body parts droop, leading to a double chin, bingo wings, thighs that lack definition, and a sagging belly.

Firm, youthful skin gives the face definition and makes the body look fit and toned. If you’re feeling self-conscious about looking out of shape or older because of lax skin, you might be considering surgery. But nobody wants to deal with the scars, the downtime, or the painful recovery process that comes with cosmetic surgery.

That’s why we offer something better: non-surgical advanced skin tightening. No scalpels, no needles, no painful recovery—just the effective results you deserve.

With our state-of-the-art Emtone and VelaShape technology, we can tighten patients’ skin in a way that no other non-invasive procedures can. Our procedures use radiofrequency energy to help the body heal itself on a deep level, tightening the skin gradually and naturally for natural-looking results.

How Does Advanced Skin Tightening Work?

Skin laxity is caused by slowed collagen and elastin creation in the skin tissues. These two proteins are what keep the skin firm, tight, plump, smooth, and healthy.

Advanced skin tightening utilizes focused energy to heat the dermal layer of the skin, enhancing collagen and elastin biosynthesis. This progressively improves skin tone and texture, restoring firmer, younger-looking skin.

What is Emtone?

Emtone is an FDA-approved state-of-the-art non-invasive treatment used for skin tightening. It is often used to tighten sagging skin on areas like the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, and arms. Emtone is completely painless and safe for all skin tones.

Emtone delivers radiofrequency (RF) energy and focused pressure energy to sagging skin. These work in harmony to promote the growth of new collagen and elastin fibers, resulting in the appearance of smoother and tighter skin.

RF energy brings the skin tissues to a temperature of 108 to 111 degrees Fahrenheit. This heat remodels and tightens the collagen protein fibers that provide structure to the skin. RF energy also causes cells called fibroblasts to create new collagen protein fibers at an advanced rate. This increase in the quantity and quality of collagen fibers strengthens and tightens the skin.

Focused pressure energy improves blood circulation and reduces waste in the tissues. This gives the skin a firmer appearance.

The treatment session is quite simple. After lotion is applied to the targeted area, the handpiece is guided across the treatment region. The process is not painful, and no anesthesia is required. It creates sensations similar to those felt during a hot stone massage. Once the area has been treated evenly, the process is complete.

What is VelaShape?

The FDA-approved VelaShape treatment is another type of skin-tightening process that results in skin that is more toned, smooth, and youthful. This is one of the most popular options available for treating sagging skin.

Along with addressing loose skin, VelaShape reduces excess fat and treats cellulite. It can address numerous areas of the body, including the upper arms, chin, abdomen, thighs, and buttocks.

VelaShape combines RF energy, infrared light, vacuum suction, and mechanical massage. Infrared light and RF energy effectively heat the tissues, boosting the body’s production of collagen and elastin protein fibers. When more collagen and elastin are created, this makes lax skin tissues healthier and tighter.

The mechanical massage aspect of the treatment relaxes the existing collagen and elastin protein fibers in the skin tissues. This allows them to stretch more effectively for a smoother appearance. It also improves lymphatic drainage. Vacuum suction draws the skin closer to the VelaShape handpiece, ensuring effective treatment.

During a VelaShape treatment session, no anesthesia of any kind is required. The VelaShape handpiece is moved back and forth over the treatment region. This creates a moderate heating sensation, along with suctioning and a relaxing massage of the tissue. The process is completely painless.

Who Are Good Candidates for Advanced Skin Tightening Treatment?

If you’re looking for a way to tighten lax skin to achieve a toned and youthful look without surgery, advanced skin tightening with Emtone or VelaShape may be the perfect solution for you. Patients with mild to moderate skin laxity are excellent candidates. 

Our treatments are perfect for patients with busy schedules who are in need of a no-downtime procedure. Advanced skin tightening has a very low likelihood of adverse effects, making it very safe.

If you are pregnant, diabetic, or taking blood thinners, discuss these factors with one of our skilled experts during your consultation.

How Many Advanced Skin Tightening Treatments Will I Need?

Patients typically require four sessions of Emtone skin tightening treatments, with each session lasting around 20 minutes and occurring once or twice weekly.

For VelaShape, patients will need three to six treatment sessions. There should be a gap of at least one week between each treatment session. VelaShape sessions usually take around 30 minutes to perform.

The more treatment sessions a patient undergoes, the more collagen and elastin protein fibers produced in the skin tissues. With every session, we further improve the firmness and strength of the skin.

The exact number of treatment sessions required for each patient will be based on a variety of factors. These include the patient’s skin-tightening goals, their degree of skin laxity, and the ways in which their skin responds to the chosen procedure. We will assess your degree of skin laxity and create a personalized treatment plan during your initial visit.

After Your Treatment Session

Since our advanced skin tightening options are not invasive or surgical in nature, patients can get back to their daily routine right away. There is no need for a recovery process.

Advanced skin tightening treatments produce visible benefits after just one session, with a full course of treatment sessions producing the best outcome.

For advanced skin tightening treatments to show their full results, it will be necessary to wait anywhere from a few weeks to a few months. This is because the devices employed in the process trigger natural physiological responses, such as improved blood flow to the treated area and new collagen formation.

After your treatment session with Emtone or VelaShape, it will be important to drink a lot of water. Water further improves skin elasticity and improves natural processing of destroyed fat cells by the body.

How Much Do Advanced Skin Tightening Cost?

Patients will learn more about the cost of their recommended advanced skin tightening treatments during their scheduled consultation. Price can be affected by many factors, including the number of required treatment sessions.
