The Science Behind Body Contouring with Skin Tightening

Posted by Andrew on 24-May-2017 11:13:01

Have you ever pondered the body’s incredible potential to heal itself? Our bodies are continually repairing and restoring and modern aesthetic science has harnessed this by developing devices that trigger your body to regenerate in the targeted treatment areas.

Following weight loss, the skin may not entirely shrink back if it has been over-stretched or stretched for a long period of time.

Syneron-Candela has created innovative technology, the VelaShape III, that stimulates your body to produce new collagen and elastin to smooth and tighten skin with the added benefit of body contouring.
