What will ThermaScan treatment do?

Elite IQ 5D Face Rejuvenation delivers energy to 5 different layers of the skin. At the deeper layers, this device uses lipolysis to reduce fat deposits for a slimmer, more sculpted appearance. It also creates a photothermal effect that tightens the fascia and stimulates collagen production for firmer skin. Elite IQ 5D Face Rejuvenation offers benefits like refining the skin texture, reducing redness, strengthening the skin barrier, and imparting a healthy, radiant glow.

Skin tightening is a non-surgical procedure that improves the appearance of loose, sagging skin.

It works by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, two proteins that are responsible for keeping skin firm and youthful.

There are a number of different skin tightening procedures available, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. Some of the most popular skin tightening procedures include:

Laser Skin Tightening:

This procedure uses laser energy to heat the deeper layers of the skin, which stimulates collagen production. Laser skin tightening is a minimally invasive procedure with little downtime.

Radiofrequency (RF) Skin Tightening:

This procedure uses RF energy to heat the deeper layers of the skin, which stimulates collagen production. RF skin tightening is also a minimally invasive procedure with little downtime.

Microneedling:

This procedure uses tiny needles to create microscopic punctures in the skin, which stimulates collagen production. Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure with little downtime.

Ultrasound Skin Tightening:
