Skin Tightening Treatments

As we age, our skin loses collagen and elastin, two important proteins responsible for the skin’s firmness and structure. Over time, this results in loose and saggy skin. Maintaining a healthy weight and exercising can help prevent loose skin; however, other factors such as smoking, sun exposure, and pollutants can play a role in developing this condition. At Birem MD Beauty & Wellness, your skin tightening treatment will begin with a personalized visit with our Board-Certified Physician, Dr. Birem. Achieve a youthful glow and bid farewell to wrinkles with our wrinkle reduction treatment & the best skin tightening treatments for face. You will receive a customized treatment plan to improve the appearance of loose skin using Venus Versa™ technology.

The Venus Versa™ has two different handpieces, the DiamondPolar and OctiPolar handpieces. These use patented (MP)2 technology that combines Multi-Polar RF and Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Fields to heat uniformly under the skin’s surface. Collagen and elastin are both produced as a result, the two proteins responsible for firm and youthful skin. This non-invasive technology can be used on all face and body areas and all skin tones. Wrinkles, fine lines, lax skin, and other signs of aging are minimized, and skin looks healthier and more youthful.

Skin Tightening FAQ’s

The Venus Versa™ is a versatile device that uses several technologies to tighten skin and improve skin texture.

You will feel comfortable and relaxed during the treatment, and no anesthetic is needed. Post-treatment usually results in some redness and skin warmth, but this usually subsides quickly over a few hours.

For best results, six treatment sessions once a week are usually recommended. Many patients see improvement to the overall condition of their skin immediately after being treated, and skin continues to improve over the next few months as collagen production increases.

The only preparation involves avoiding anti-inflammatory medications such as ibuprofen for one week before or after your treatments-the inflammation produced by the treatment results in collagen stimulation which is the desired effect.

Results are cumulative. Your results will improve for up to 3-4 months following the final session in your treatment plan. As you continue to age, you should maintain your face and body on a monthly or every 3-4 monthly basis, depending on the individual.

There is no downtime with these treatments. Most people can resume their everyday activities right after their treatments.
