The beauty industry is full of lotions, potions and treatments all promising tighter, firmer skin within days. The reality is that not many of them are effective in tightening facial skin or the skin around the eyes. The great news is that revolutionary, nonsurgical laser treatments for skin are available to firm, tighten and lift the skin in problem areas without having to go under the knife.
When we talk about aging and skin laxity, there are a number of variables at work that can make a person look older than others. Taking care of your skin from the inside out should be everyone’s number one concern when looking to maintain a youthful appearance. Not smoking, exercise, low alcohol consumption, and daily use of a sunscreen work wonders for keeping fine lines and wrinkles at bay.
Collagen and elastin are the connective tissues beneath our skin that keeps our complexion looking smooth and firm. Ultimately, however the collagen in our skin is bound to dwindle as we age resulting in volume loss and sagging skin. Think of depleted collagen fibres as a pair of old, wrinkly, worn jeans that have stretched after numerous wears. Many of us throw our jeans in the dryer to tighten them and restore them to their original state. You’ll be happy to know that there are laser treatments for skin available using radiofrequency and infrared light that work much the same way, tightening the collagen fibres beneath your skin while stimulating new growth.
Thermage CPT™ is commonly referred to as the gold standard in non-invasive skin tightening. This safe and effective treatment uses radiofrequency technology to deliver gentle heating to the deep layers of your skin, stimulating your existing collagen and promoting new collagen growth. Tightening your collagen in this way results in an overall younger looking appearance in a single treatment without surgery or injections.
The pros of Thermage CPT™? Results are achieved in a single treatment. This laser treatment works on all skin types and colours and it can be performed in the summer without the worry of having to avoid sun exposure. The cons? Older generations of Thermage™ were known to deliver a more intense treatment experience. The advances in the Thermage CPT™ system have addressed these concerns making the treatment more comfortable and customizable while delivering more pulses to the skin.
Incorporating a skin tightening treatment like Thermage CPT™ as part of a comprehensive anti-aging plan that includes skin care and dermal fillers is truly the best approach in achieving surgical results without the surgery and/or the downtime.BACK TO ALL ARTICLES
