Some wrinkles are caused by sagging skin. At Arcanum we offer skin tightening procedures of the face and body.
About Skin Tightening
What causes skin laxity or loose skin? The flow of time and long-term exposure to ultraviolet radiation from sunlight causes skin to age — a process called photo-aging. Lax and saggy skin with loss of elasticity is one of the most visible signs of photo-aging. Loose and sagging skin anywhere on the body, including the face, neck, chin, jowls, stomach, arms, knees, buttocks, thighs, and even the vaginal area; can add years to your appearance. Skin tightening works by heating the dermal layer of the skin to stimulate collagen production. The collagen works as a supporting structure that lifts the skin and gives it a smoother, younger appearance.

Skin Tightening FAQs
The Sublime™ handpiece provides a non-invasive wrinkle treatment. It uses the elōs® system to combine levels of infrared (IR) light and bi-polar radio frequency (RF) energies to remodel the deep dermal layer of the skin by stimulating new collagen growth.
This predictable heating of the deep dermis stimulates and shortens aged collagen fibers, resulting in immediate and long-term improvement of wrinkles.
A new category of fractional skin treatments.
Its fractionated bi-polar RF technology uses heat energy to encourage significant increases of collagen and elastin in the upper dermis – with low epidermal disruption for a broad range of skin types.
Less affected tissue surrounding the matrix points may be stimulated by heat, which helps accelerate the healing process, leading to a smoother, rejuvenated appearance of the skin
