Skin tightening without surgery is possible with the new InMode RF system that utilizes bipolar radio-frequency energy to achieve a lifting of sagging tissues. The FaceTite & BodyTite applicators only require a needle entry point to be positioned immediately below the skin. A painless gliding movement of the applicator, under local anesthesia, delivers controlled heating of the fibrous bands attached to the undersurface of the skin as well as the external skin surface. The treatment initiates a process that can produce surgery-like lifting results over 3-6 months with no scars.
RFAL is a technique that combines liposuction of unwanted deposits of fat from specific areas of the body including the face and neck, upper arms, trunk, abdomen, buttocks, hips, thighs, knees, calves, and ankles with the InMode RF system. RFAL enables the treatment of localized fat deposits that do not respond to diet or exercise and simultaneous RF non-excisional skin tightening using the thermal field that flows directly from the tip of the cannula to the external surface electrode.

Ultherapy® is a non-surgical treatment that uses ultrasound energy to safely lift and tone the skin without any downtime. The ultrasound image on the viewing screen allows Dr. Forley to see precisely at what level the energy is being delivered. The focused sound waves create targeted heating of the deep layers of the face and neck that have lost their elasticity and firmness over time. Because the sound waves pass directly below the surface of the skin, the deep support layer responsible for sagging is tightened without disrupting the skin. Following an Ultherapy® treatment, some improvements may be visible immediately with contraction and firming of the facial tissues but the building of new collagen occurs gradually over three to six months following the treatment. The combination of contraction of the tissues and new collagen formation can counter the effects of gravity on the skin and achieve significant lifting results. Although the results do not duplicate those of surgery, the visible improvements of Ultherapy® make it a compelling non-invasive option for those who are not ready to undergo a more extensive procedure.
Dr. Forley speaks about the Ultherapy® procedure.
Facial folds and jawline definition are improved with the Silhouette InstaLift by using fully absorbable suspension sutures containing small, smooth cones to lift the tissues below the skin. The specially designed sutures are placed under the skin to enable mechanical fixation of the deep layer of the cheek. Once the sutures are implanted, the lax tissues of the face are lifted by using the opposing orientation of the cones to compress and fix the loose facial layers in an elevated position. A process of biological fixation occurs over the first few months in which the cones become encapsulated by collagen thereby securing the lift in the desired position. The presence of the suture material itself gradually results in added volume and contour in the face due to its collagen stimulating properties.
