Non-Surgical Face Lift –that works!

Non- Surgical Face Lift is achieved by promoting new collagen formation in the deeper layers of skin.

To understand the mechanism of Non-surgical Face Lift, we need to understand the properties of collagen. It is a very specialized tissue in the skin, organs and body joints. Healthy collagen retains lot of water. The suppleness and softness of a young person’s skin is due to the presence of healthy young collagen. Bone joints retain their flexibility also due to this amazing tissue. The suppleness of blood vessels like those in heart, kidneys, brain and eyes and other body organs, is due to the presence of young and healthy collagen.

As age advances, collagen also ages and starts to lose its elasticity and suppleness. Due to a process called “intermolecular cross-linking of collagen molecules”, leading to less water holding capacity and as a result body tissues start stiffening. This change is visible in stiffening of the joints, arteries of heart, kidneys and brain etc. Most visible change is seen on face where the tissues start losing their tone and tight effect. A good tone of the face skin gives a person a younger look. On the contrary when collagen in the face skin loses its suppleness, skin starts sagging giving the face its aged look. So, can we reverse this process by some means? Do we have the technology that can restore healthy collagen in the skin? Fortunately, yes we have.

Modern technology allows us to replace ageing collagen with young and healthy collagen. Regulated energy emitted by modern Radio-frequency machines are capable of bringing about this change. Addition of Infra-red energies to Radio-frequency has proven to be very effective in bringing about this change. Infra-red & Radio-frequency – IRF used at VITAL CLINIC gives very effective and lasting replacement of ageing collagen with young and healthy collagen. During the entire process there is simultaneous cooling of the skin surface so that there is no discomfort to the patient during treatment.

IRF combines the best technologies in the world to give non-surgical skin tightening without any side effects and downtime.

Wrinkles and loose skin can take its toll on your looks. Even healthy and active people eventually show signs of aging on their faces. Since it's the most important visual feature of your body, it's important to keep your face fresh and youthful.

Body skin can become loose due to natural ageing, weight-loss and liposuction. The visible appearance of loose skin is due to loss of natural contracting power of the collagen fibres in deep layer of skin, the dermis.

How VITAL Skin-tite™ works

IRF penetrates the deeper layers of skin to achieve deep skin tightening by stimulating growth of new and young collagen. Combination of IR and Bi-Polar RF provides controlled deep dermal heating. This predictable heating of the deep dermis both stimulates and shortens aged collagen fibers, resulting in the immediate and long term improvement of skin wrinkles.

The unique Hand piece delivers IRF energy through a sapphire crystal and bipolar electrodes while cooling the skin at the same time.   This initiates a strong wound healing response in the dermis without damaging. New and young collagen starts to develop in 3-4 months’ time.
