Laser and light therapy — a non-invasive way to tighten sagging skin

Are you feeling like the skin on your belly, legs, arms, or backside isn’t as tight as it used to be? Unfortunately, it’s most likely true.  As we age, the collagen in our skin breaks down, causing wrinkles, sagging and bulging.

Thankfully, the doctors and aestheticians at Reflections have proven expertise in the latest non-invasive treatments like radiofrequency, lasers and ultrasound that penetrate deeply into the skin to stimulate collagen production, resulting in a smoother, tighter, and more contoured body.

Experience the Reflections difference — our innovative approach to skin tightening gives you a smoother, more contoured body.

So many options — what’s right for me?

At Reflections, we understand that you are unique. Our wide range of state-of-the-art skin tightening devices means that we have treatment options perfect for your particular needs.  In the hands of our experienced staff, these tools provide very satisfying results.

Exilis is a safe, noninvasive treatment offering skin tightening virtually anywhere on the body, including the abdomen, love handles, thighs, hips, bra area, upper arms, knees, jaw line, and neck. Radiofrequency energy from Exilis heats the deep layers of the skin, increasing metabolic activity to shrink fat cells and stimulate the skin’s collagen production.1*

VelaShape™ features the unique combination of infrared light energy, radiofrequency energy and actual kneading of the skin that needs tightening. The combined heat energy penetrates the skin deeply enough to reduce thigh and buttock circumference. Velashape treatment re-contours the entire treatment area giving the appearance of weight loss instantly. Patients report that the treatment is painless, and even pleasant. VelaShape requires no downtime and is effective on all skin types and colors.5*

Thermage is a noninvasive procedure with no downtime that is clinically proven to tighten, contour, lift and rejuvenate the skin in a single treatment. Thermage uses radiofrequency energy to gently heat fat deposits beneath the skin, causing the fat to contract and skin to tighten over time.

A Thermage treatment takes less than an hour, and measurable tightening and contouring improvements appear gradually over a three to six month time period following a single treatment session.2*

SlimLipo,the leading FDA-approved, minimally invasive laser treatment for liposuction, offers skin tightening along with fat removal for a better contour and smoother result. With two unique laser wavelengths, SlimLipo tightens skin in a procedure that is fast, safe and well tolerated by our patients.

During the treatment, we make tiny incisions and inject a numbing fluid that makes the procedure comfortable, reduces bruising and aids in the removal of fat deposits. A laser fiber is inserted under the skin to liquefy the fat cells and heat the innermost structures of the skin, causing the fat to melt, and providing a noticeable lifting and tightening. Patients are back on their feet quickly, with most returning to work just a few days after the procedure.3,4*
