Non-Surgically Tighten Sagging Skin in NJ

As we age, loss of collagen and elastin in our skin can leave the belly, thighs, buttocks, and arms draped with sagging skin. Fortunately, we have technologies that stimulate the regeneration of collagen and help to tighten sagging skin.
When it comes to tightening skin, Tummy Tucks and Body Lifts aren’t your only options. Dr. Wix-Harris is a body contouring specialist who knows how to get the very best results, whether you want to skip surgery altogether, or just avoid the prominent scarring and long recovery of a surgical skin reduction.
Our plastic surgeon does offer body lift surgery, however, if you decide that is the right choice for you!

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.

Exilis Ultra

Exilis is a safe, non-invasive treatment offering skin tightening virtually anywhere on the body, including the abdomen, love handles, thighs, hips, bra area, upper arms, knees, jawline, and neck.

VelaShape

VelaShape features a 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

Thermage is a non-invasive 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 the 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

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 heats 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*
