One of the more sought after treatments for anti-aging is skin tightening. As we age, our skin loses it’s elasticity and firmness, causing wrinkling and sagging of the skin’s tissues. There are many factors that play a role in the aging of the skin. However, the main issues are a slower rate of cell turnover and the reduction of collagen production in the dermal layer.
Strategies for maintaining and improving the texture and firmness of the skin range from topical solutions to surgical interventions. I believe that a combination of strategies provides the best outcomes for individuals seeking younger looking skin. Surgery aside, About Face and Body Laser and Wellness Clinic has several options to consider. In this blog, I will discuss one of our amazing strategies for you!
Skin tightening using the revolutionary Fotona SP Dynamis laser in PIANO mode heats the dermal layer of the skin, leaving the epidermal layer intact, resulting in a tightening effect for the skin. Stimulating collagen to remodel creates new protein bonds that hold the skin cells together, thereby allowing for firmer and more youthful skin. Following this part of the treatment with a more superficial laser setting using Er:Yag SMOOTH mode and controlled heating of the epidermis initiates further the collagen neogenesis (birth of new collagen) and improves overall laxity and elasticity.
We have found that combining skin tightening treatments with a light laser peel increases the efficacy of the treatments and results in a more positive outcome. Treating the skin with a peel in advance of the skin tightening treatments starts the process of micro-controlled damage to the skin that instigates the healing response and stimulates the skin to fix itself. A substantial increase in cell turnover further improves the collagen levels of the skin!
