Dr. Jaffer’s sees hundreds of men and women from Vancouver every year who are frustrated with their loose and sagging skin. As we age, our skin can’t replenish and repair itself like it did when we were younger. Combine that with excessive weight gain, and weight loss, pregnancy, or genetics and many people end up dissatisfied with their lumpy, bumpy figure. Thankfully, Dr. Jaffer of Heights Laser Centre offers non-surgical solutions to get the tight skin you’ve been wanting.
For every patient, Dr. Jaffer tailors each treatment plan based on their personal desires, medical history, and skin type in order to reach their goals. He is always transparent and only recommends treatments that are best suited for each patient.
The Skin Tightening Process at Heights Laser Centre
For more than 10 years, Dr. Jaffer has been providing Vancouver residents with non-surgical solutions to all of their anti-aging needs. His entire practice is developed around the comfort of his patients by providing them with exceptional patient-care and an enjoyable, relaxing office environment.
Visiting Our Medical Spa
When you visit with Dr. Jaffer at Heights Laser Centre for your initial consultation, you will have ample time to explain your concerns to him, ask all the questions you have about the procedure you’re considering, and hear all about what you can expect from your treatment and results. For Dr. Jaffer, a one-size-fits-all solution is out of the question. He creates an individualized treatment plan for each of his Vancouver patients based on their specific needs and body characteristics.
During your examination, Dr. Jaffer will examine your problem areas to determine whether or not skin tightening treatments will help you get the results you want. He will examine:
- The skin around your eyes
- Your cheeks
- Your neck
- Your abdomen
- Your hips
- Your thighs
These are the areas of the body most commonly treated through skin tightening procedures. If Dr. Jaffer determines you have too much loose or sagging skin to benefit from skin tightening, he will recommend an alternative procedure or treatment plan. Ultimately, your satisfaction is his priority, and he will only recommend the best course of action to give you the results you want.
Skin Tightening Treatments
Before receiving your skin tightening treatments, Dr. Jaffer will have a member of his team take “before” photos of your problem areas. This is the best way to help patients (and Dr. Jaffer) see the reality of their results. His team will then make sure you are comfortably reclined and that your treatment area has been prepared.
For Vancouver patients, Dr. Jaffer uses two different types of skin tightening technologies:
VelaShape II ®
VelaShape II ® uses a combination of infrared light, bi-polar radio frequency energy, and vacuum. This combined treatment causes fat cells to become deeply heated, which results in new growth of collagen and elastin. It also means that the treated skin will have improved skin laxity, volume, and appearance.
VelaShape II ® is used on the body, rather than the face and can be used independently, or in conjunction with another treatment for optimal results. For the best outcome, Dr. Jaffer usually recommends his Vancouver patients receive five treatments to get the results they want.
Most patients report that they experience no pain with VelaShape II ® skin tightening treatments, but some noticed a slight redness to the treated area. This resolves within a few hours after treatment.
Sublime ® skin tightening technology is used to tighten skin on the face. For men and women who have started to notice those typical signs of aging around the eyes, and cheeks, Sublime ® is the skin tightening system for the job. This procedure is effective on all skin types and is pain-free. Vancouver patients even have the added benefit of seeing immediate results after their first treatment!
Sublime ® skin tightening is the perfect option to treat loose and sagging skin on the face over your lunch break, as it requires no downtime. The magic behind Sublime ® comes from the use of a combination of infrared light and bipolar radiofrequency energy to stimulate the growth of new collagen – the backbone to tight, rejuvenated skin.
As we mentioned, both of our skin tightening treatment options are pain-free, and most Vancouver patients find it to be a pleasant experience. During your treatment, you will enjoy a private room. You will also be able to enjoy time reading or checking your phone while your procedure is being performed. You may even choose to take a nap – the procedure is that easy!
