Nonsurgical skin tightening
Dr. Bucio, at the Bucio Surgicenter Plastic Surgery Clinic, is proud to be Tijuana’s first Plastic Surgery clinic to present the latest technology in Non-Surgical Treatment for Body and Facial Skin Tightening
What is Skin Tightening?
For a long time technology has looked for ways to give back to the skin its youthful appearance. With Accent Radio Frequency technology, something that was impossible until not so long ago can now be achieved: the tightening and contraction of skin without the necessity of surgery (Skin Tightening).
How does it work?
Radio Frequency produces a gradual heating of the skin, mainly working upon existing collagen fibers, strengthening them and producing an effect in the skin called collagen genesis (formation of new collagen), creating a skin tightening effect, which in turn reduces flaccidity (sagging and loose skin).
How does the treatment feel?
You will feel a heating of the skin, which will slowly increase but without getting to be painful.
The treatment is for both men and women who wish to improve their body image without surgery.
What can I expect from this treatment?
The results can be noticed in two ways. Immediately after the first session, the contraction and tightening of the existing collagen is evident. In addition, after a few weeks the results will be accentuated, reaching the maximum effect at the first three months, which is when the formation of new collagen is completed.
Facial skin tightening will produce results through the contraction of the skin (lifting effect), redefining the facial shape, raising the cheekbones, eyebrows and neck, and reshaping the contour of the eyes.
Similarly as to the facial area, the Accent Body treatment works with the tightening of the skin, improving the flaccidity (flabbiness and looseness) of the skin tissue commonly caused by age, pregnancies and sudden loss or gain of weight.
The treatment can be performed in arms, abdomen, buttocks and legs. The results are noticeable at the first session, and you will immediately notice that your clothes fit better!
The treatment also reduces the appearance of cellulite, mainly because this problem is directly related to flaccidity. By reducing the flaccidity, the appearance of cellulite diminishes.
