Skin Tightening Treatments in Vancouver

        Skin can lose its elasticity due to various factors, including weight loss, aging, and childbirth. Skin Matters in Vancouver provides effective methods of tightening skin, from ultrasound and radiofrequency technology to injectables and non-invasive procedures.

        What Is Skin Tightening? 

        Skin tightening is a treatment that creates a firmer look that rids the skin of wrinkles, sagging, and even cellulite. Non-surgical skin tightening involves technologies or injectables that promote collagen production to lift and tighten the skin. In contrast, surgical options often involve an incision being made so the skin can be physically lifted. Depending on the treatment type you use, results and effects may vary.

        Thermage is a proven, unique radiofrequency treatment that will help improve the appearance of sagging or loose skin, giving you a firmer, smoother and younger look and feel.
