Firmer, smoother, more youthful appearance with little to no downtime
At Venus Medical, we have an array of advanced technologies for tightening skin and collagen stimulation after we analyse and assess the quality of your skin.
Skin loses its natural smooth and toned state when collagen and elastin in the skin diminish. Thanks to modern science, various, effective energy-based treatments are available to reverse some of the signs of aging and improve the appearance of skin on the face and body.
We have some of the best technologies in the world available at Venus Medical, and will discuss the right skin tightening treatment for you based on your needs following a consultation and careful assessment.
The ideal candidate
The ideal candidate has concerns about loose skin or heaviness in the neck and lower face or around the eyes, but wishes to avoid surgery. Suitable patients can choose between non-invasive or minimally invasive options depending on whether they can afford a few days downtime or not.
We’re here to help you achieve natural-looking results whatever your concerns.
Non-invasive skin tightening
Venus Medical was the first clinic in Ireland to use Ultherapy, an advanced FDA-approved technology for skin tightening and lifting. Suitable for the brow, face, neck and décolletage, Ultherapy has virtually no downtime and takes just 60-90 minutes as a single procedure. KonturMD is another option for collagen stimulation that uses non-invasive radiofrequency energy to heat and stimulate collagen. This is an ideal maintenance therapy following Ultherapy or as a stand-alone procedure over 6-8 weekly sessions.
Minimally invasive skin tightening
Dr Prendergast was the first in Ireland to use FaceTite, an advanced tightening treatment for face and neck that employs bipolar radiofrequency to tighten and lift the jowls and neck. This can provide dramatic results under local anaesthesia without the need for invasive surgery. A head garment is worn for three days. A tiny, precision probe, AccuTite, that uses the same technology for delicate areas including around the eyes is also available at Venus Medical.
For diffuse fine lines, including fine lines around the eyes and in the cheeks, two further options can be considered:
- The first, fractional CO2 laser resurfacing, is a remarkable treatment for removing sun damage and brown pigmentation as well as tightening surface wrinkles and lines. Numbing injections are used to make the treatment comfortable. This treatment is safest if limited to the face region.
- The second option, Morpheus8, uses fractional radiofrequency needling to create tiny injuries in the skin and deliver heat precisely to the deeper layer of skin. This stimulates and tightens the skin beautifully. Morpheus8 delivers best results in three treatments at one-month intervals. CO2 laser resurfacing requires one week of downtime, compared to 2-3 days with Morpheus8. Morpheus8 can safely be used on face and body regions.
