This Year, Resolve to Look Younger than Last Year with Tighter Skin

Almost no one enjoys looking in the mirror and noticing the changes time has wrought. Whether you see your eyes are drooping at the corners, your jawline isn’t quite as distinct as it once was, or you notice an overall sagging that seems to have crept up on you, you probably don’t think, “Wow! That looks good!”

If you’re like most people, you want your appearance to reflect your inner confidence and beauty. Dr. Elaine Phuah can help make that happen. At Hanami Medspa in Fort Worth, Texas, she applies her skills and experience to tackle your skin problems, including using skin tightening procedures.

Why your skin changes

Beneath the surface of your skin, two proteins keep that skin looking youthful and smooth. They are collagen and elastin. Over your lifetime, your body slowly produces less of these two important proteins, and the result is skin that begins to sag and appear looser. 

After a time, wrinkles, a sagging jawline, and fine lines around your eyes and mouth begin to appear because there’s too little collagen and elastin to give your skin proper support. However, there are ways to stimulate your body to produce more of these proteins and “turn back the clock.” 

Radiofrequency for your skin

The word “radiofrequency” might make you think of remote control toys, or maybe the microwave, but a new type of skin treatment harnesses radiofrequency energy to improve the appearance of your skin.

Like other forms of electromagnetic energy, radio waves can produce heat, and, with the highly advanced Venus Versa™ system, Dr. Phuah heats the tissues beneath the surface of your skin. 

That thermal energy stimulates your body’s natural healing response. That response includes an increased production of collagen and elastin. The result is smoother, firmer, and more youthful-looking skin. 

Benefits of Venus Versa

The Venus Versa system has many benefits. First, it uses a combination of radio frequency and pulsed electromagnetic waves to precisely produce gentle heat under your skin. Second, the treatments are usually quite short, between 25 and 60 minutes, depending on the area you’re having treated, so fitting them into your schedule is a snap. 

Third, RF skin-tightening treatments are completely non-invasive. There’s not even a needle stick involved! Dr. Phuah or a staff member simply holds the device on the area being treated. 

Venus Versa treatments are safe for people of any skin tone, and people often describe the sessions as being similar to a hot stone massage. In other words, you can enjoy a relaxing treatment, and walk out with improved skin. 

Number of sessions

The results of your treatments are cumulative. You’ll be able to see a difference right away, but over time, as your body continues to produce more proteins, you’ll be able to see a greater difference. 

Most patients require multiple sessions spread over several weeks. The exact number of sessions depends on a variety of factors. Dr. Phuah starts with a thorough evaluation and then makes recommendations tailored for your skin and your aesthetic goals.
