Skin Tightening Treatments
The Best Nonsurgical Treatment for Skin Tightening
Having and maintaining smooth and firm looking skin is something that anyone from ages 25 and onwards desire. The daily reminder of sagging or lax skin when looking in the mirror can frustrate many individuals – making skin tightening an important aesthetic concern to address for many Canadians.
Lax or sagging skin is the most common sign of aging. Sagging skin is caused when the amount of collagen and elastin produced significantly declines due to age. Collagen is a natural protein that provides the elastin in the connective tissues with the necessary strength to stay firm and stay bound together. In order for your skin to stay young and healthy, there needs to be a steady cycle of both collagen and elastin growth. When collagen production is significantly decreased, the elastin fiber does not have enough strength to hold together. This causes skin to sink in and sag, resulting in uneven skin and loose skin.
There are a few options to reduce the signs of aging and eliminate loose skin. For example, skin tightening cosmetic surgeries have been an option for decades. However, because they are surgical procedures, there are more risks and more chances of complications and pain involved. Therefore, nonsurgical options are now more popular to combat signs of aging, including wrinkles and sagging skin. Nonsurgical treatments are preferred options because the treatments can firm up the skin and stimulate collagen and elastin production without having to go through any invasive procedures. Non-invasive medical aesthetic treatments also have a significantly lower risk of complications and requires minimal downtime.
The VelaShape III
At Canada MedLaser, we provide nonsurgical skin tightening treatments with the VelaShape III by Candela Medical. The VelaShape III by Candela Medical is a non-invasive treatment that tightens and firms the skin with various heating technologies. The VelaShape III uses a combination of technologies formed into one machine. These technologies include bipolar radio frequency energy, infrared light technology and a vacuum technology as well as a therapeutic massage roller to ensure proper circulation of controlled heat throughout the treatment session. The bipolar radio frequency energy from the VelaShape III device safely guides heat evenly throughout the targeted area. The heat from the bipolar radio frequency energy goes up to 15 mm in depth, which means that the energy heats up quicker without damaging the surface skin. The infrared light technology heats the targeted area up to 3 mm in depth. This combination heats up the fat cells, fibrous cords and the collagen fibres underneath. With the help of the VelaShape rollers and vacuum technology, we use controlled heat to stimulate rapid collagen and elastin production. As a result, the skin in the treated area becomes firmer and also creates a toned look.
The VelaShape III can treat multiple areas of the body for skin tightening. These areas include sagging skin in the flank, abdomen, buttocks, arms, thighs and even under the chin. The VelaShape III treatment is safe, comfortable and significant results are visible after one treatment. For the best and most long-lasting treatment results, 3-4 sessions are recommended.

- Health Canada and FDA approved

Laser Skin Tightening Treatment
Receive the Benefits of a Facelift Without the Risks of Surgery
Who doesn’t want to look young? The daily reminder of aging skin when looking in the mirror can frustrate many Canadians into seeking help against the onslaught of age. Wrinkles and fine lines, sagging skin and jowls seem to creep into our appearance and ruin our facial beauty.
It’s not like there haven’t been remedies to this recurring problem of aging. Surgical solutions have been around for decades, but the risks and downtime have given many Canadians pause. They look for a procedure where they can have the benefits of tight facial skin without the risks and recovery of surgery.
Canada MedLaser Clinics is proud to present the advanced innovative technology of Doublo-S™, a non-surgical, non-invasive skin tightening system. But more than a system, a state-of-the-art skin regimen which can reduce many years from your facial appearance and revitalize your facial beauty!
Doublo-S™ uses High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound Technology (HIFU) to penetrate deeper through tissue than radio wave or laser technologies. HIFU broadcasts to deep tissue and creates thermal injury and heat to the target area. A calibrated frequency determines the depth of penetrations; lower frequency will penetrate deeper, producing thermal injury zones at deep layers while a higher frequency produces a shallow focal point. Doublo-S™ will determine concentrated energy conveyance to correct skin laxity.
How Doublo-S™ Works
Doublo-S™ uses the amazing HIFU technology delivering a true non-surgical alternative to the traditional facelift surgery. Doublo-S™ is the only FDA approved skin tightening treatment with the specific intent to soften facial lines on the face and neck by penetrating to the depths of a surgical facelift.
Doublo-S™ uses the influence of ultrasound to lift underlying facial tissues for a safe and effective skin tightening procedure. Ultrasound is energy dissimilar to IPL, lasers, and electrical energy. Doublo-S™ penetrates at deeper depths with precision and higher temperatures greater than Radio Frequency while protecting the skin surface. It treats where structural weakness starts, beyond the dermis layer and skin foundation.
Underlying tissue is being heated up in the treatment area, creating thermal heat and strategic wounds in the skin tissue. This action will promote healing and the rapid production of collagen. Over the next few months, underlying wound-healing will lead to additional skin tightening and lifting which can last several years.
Doublo-S™ treatment will also aid in the enhancement of the facial features around the eyes, cheeks, mouth, and chin, and improve skin tone without blocking facial expression. It is also an outstanding post-surgical facelift treatment regimen to maintain the lift and treat its unwanted consequences like numbness and scarring.

How is the VelaShape III technology different from other nonsurgical skin tightening technologies?
The VelaShape III not only tightens the skin in the treated areas, it also shrinks the size of the cellulite fat cells underneath the skin. This means that the VelaShape III not only smooths the skin, it also creates a firmer complexion, promotes rapid collagen and elastin production as well as effectively reducing the circumference of the targeted area that is being treated.
How Does the VelaShape III Skin Tightening Treatment Feel?
The best way to describe the sensation of the VelaShape III treatment is that it resembles a hot stone message. This treatment uses a combination of bipolar radio frequency and infrared light technology with a vacuum applicator that safely distributes controlled heat into the treated area. You will feel a heating sensation, but it is safe and will not damage the surface of your skin. After the treatment, you will see mild redness on your skin or experience a warm sensation for a few hours. This means that the treatment was effective, and you will also see results after the first treatment.
What Can I Expect to see Results from the VelaShape III Skin Tightening Treatment?
You will be able to see results after your initial VelaShape III treatment. However, for optimal and long-term results, at least 3-4 treatment sessions are recommended.

Laser Treatment Skin Tightening
Skin Tightening is sought after by millions. Once our collagen and cell turnover rate begins to slow down at the age of 25, that’s when the sagging starts. Most of us aren’t concerned by it until reality hits after 30. Whatever *age is, laser skin tightening with Candela Gentle Max is one of the most popular treatments on the market. Using radiofrequency technology, the laser is able to penetrate into the depths of the dermis where collagen lies, heating it up to 40-43 degrees C. When collagen heats up, and begins to cool down, it automatically plumps, giving smoother, plumper skin. Few treatments are required with Canada MedLaser’s Candela Gentle Max laser technology, and results are seen after the *first session! Benefits of this treatment include:
