Facial aging is caused by changes in several types of tissue, including skin, fat, muscle, and bone. A change in one tissue layer has an effect on the others. Aging causes a change in the skin’s appearance and structure, including thinner skin, drier skin, less elasticity, increase in wrinkles or sagging, and reduced production of collagen and elastin. Reduced production of collagen is a key factor in the skin’s aging process. As skin ages, the middle layer of skin (dermis) thins due to collagen loss, reducing the skin’s ability to retain elasticity (from elastin) and moisture (from hyaluronic acid). We offer the following treatments for skin tightening to rejuvenate your skin and boost collagen regeneration.
Treatments for Skin Tightening
Sublime® is a skin tightening treatment that targets wrinkles, deep smile lines, and sagging skin. Using bipolar radio frequency and infrared technology, Sublime aids in collagen production to reduce fine wrinkles and noticeably lift sagging skin. As your natural collagen regenerates, your skin begins to look softer and smoother in tone and texture, taking years off your skin’s appearance. A full-face treatment is necessary for a “laser lift,” but DermaHealth also offers an à la carte treatment selection for forehead lines, smile lines, and sagging skin around the jaw and neck. The recommended treatment schedule is four procedures, usually three to four weeks apart. Best results are observed approximately six months after your last treatment, when collagen regeneration is at its peak. All skin types can benefit from this treatment.
Forma is a clinically advanced skin care treatment designed to revitalize and renew skin, allowing you to put your best face forward. It uses radio frequency to stimulate skin contraction and new collagen growth in the deepest layers of skin. Forma is ideal for clients seeking a noninvasive approach to smoother, younger-looking skin. The recommended treatment schedule is four procedures, usually one to two weeks apart. Best results are observed approximately six months after your last treatment, when collagen regeneration is at its peak. All skin types can benefit from this treatment.
Microneedling is a new, innovative treatment in aesthetic medicine that improves the appearance of fine lines and acne scars. Clients see an improvement of the skin’s texture, tone, and color. Microneedling involves the use of a dermaroller – a simple, hand-held instrument with fine needles – to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin to aid in the production of collagen and elastin. The skin’s repair process results in a thicker epidermis, causing a softer appearance of wrinkles. This treatment also creates micro-channels, which allow topical gels, creams, and serums to be absorbed more effectively, enhancing the effects in deeper layers of the skin.
