Skin Tightening


Non-Surgical Skin Tightening for Firmer Skin - Discover VelaShape and Forma: FDA-Approved Solutions

Velashape and Forma are innovative, FDA-approved skin tightening procedures that offer a safe and effective solution for facial wrinkles, cellulite, and skin laxity of the body. These cutting-edge treatments use advanced radiofrequency technology to heat the deeper layers of your skin without causing any damage to the epidermis. The application of controlled heat triggers collagen contraction and tightening, stimulating increased collagen production, ultimately enhancing overall skin firmness.


A Painless and Anesthesia-Free Experience

Unlike many other skin tightening systems, Velashape and Forma do not necessitate any form of anesthesia or skin cooling. Patients typically experience a deep, warming sensation when the handpiece makes contact with the treated area, with no associated pain. The device's handpiece continually monitors skin temperature to ensure optimal treatment delivery, ensuring the best possible results. The temperature goals are reached and maintained during the treatment which stimulates the collagen tightening below the skin. Following the procedure, you can immediately return to your daily routine, as reported side effects are generally mild, including temporary discomfort during the treatment, along with mild swelling and redness. Swelling and redness typically subside within 24 hours. For optimal results, we recommend undergoing the treatment 6-12 times, 1-2 times a week.


Areas Treated by VelaShape and Forma

Velashape can effectively target larger areas of the body, including the abdomen, arms, thighs, and buttocks. Smaller Forma handpiece can also treat the face and neck. Many individuals notice results after just one treatment, with skin tightness and tone improvements lasting up to six months with maintenance treatments twice a year. As a full facial treatment typically takes only an hour and entails minimal recovery time, Forma treatment can conveniently fit into anyone's busy schedule.

Minimaly Invasive Skin tightening

When external skin tightening is not enough and skin excision surgery is not an option, there are some minimally invasive options for skin tightening. This includes FaceTite/BodyTite and Renuvion. These modalities require minor surgical approaches to insert the tightening probe under the skin after infiltration of the treated area with numbing solution. However, because the areas are small and the treatment is localized, full general anesthesia is usually not necessary and a minimally invasive approach may be used. Just as the external treatments heat up the tissues under the skin, these minimally invasive modalities apply more direct heating to the deeper skin layers stimulating skin contraction and tightening in a more effective, direct approach. Because the treatment is direct, it only requires a single session and not a series of 6-12 as in other treatment methods. Because this treatment is more invasive (although minimally so) this treatment is only performed by Dr. Gorodisky.
