Skin Tightening at Refine Medical Spa

At Dr. Bonnie Vulich’s Refine Medical Spa in Chicago, Illinois, we are proud to offer skin tightening . We use Venus Legacy to achieve the best results possible. 

What is skin tightening?

Laser skin tightening is the tightening of the skin on the face, neck, or body using heat. After the age of 30,  collagen and elastin—the two proteins that help our skin stay firm, plump, and toned – production slows. Non-surgical skin tightening with lasers targets skin layers to stimulate collagen and elastin production. After the treatment, the texture and tone of skin will be improved.

What do you use to tighten skin?

Venus Legacy is cutting-edge technology that utilizes multi-polar radio frequency and pulsed magnetic fields that cause a thermal reaction in the tissue that stimulates the body’s natural healing response. This results in a reduction of cellulite and noticeable tightening of the skin. The treated area can immediately look smoother and firmer.

What does skin tightening do?

Venus Legacy is used for two specific purposes:

1. Tightening loose and sagging skin, common in the aging process, and after weight loss or childbirth

2. Reducing cellulite, which is caused by underlying fat deposits that give the skin a dimpled or lumpy appearance.

Most areas of the body can be treated, including the face and neck.


Does laser skin tightening hurt?

The treatment is safe and pain free. Most people describe it as a warm massage.

How many treatments will I need to tighten my skin?

Skin tightening can be used on both body and face to create a more youthful appearance.  The number of sessions needed will depend on the area being treated.
