As you age, it’s natural for your skin to sag a bit. Unfortunately, this leads to a less youthful
The good news is you can give your face a lift and remove wrinkles without major surgery. Here
are a few skin tightening and deep cleaning treatments that actually work. Ultrasonic, Radio Frequency, Microdermabrasion,and microneedling.
If you’re dealing with congested acne-prone-dull skin, dark circles or puffiness ultrasonic(skin-scrape) therapy may prove to be the perfect solution. It’s a great choice for young women that are congested from wearing make-up or products, those of us over the age of 30, as prevention who want to ‘age’ gracefully. When performing this treatment, a handheld device is placed directly on the skin with a natural conductive gel and ‘scrubbed’ and finished with a specific serum, smoothed over treatment areas. Ultrasonic has the ability to reach deep below the surface. Heat and waves remove debris, dead skin cells, dirt, then induces the production of more collagen, which helps greatly reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Cell turnover increases dramatically. Overtime, expect your face to look, cleaner, younger, tighter and have reduced pore size. I really recommend UltraSkinScrub for anyone (18-100) that wants a deep clean and is prone to large or clogged pores especially in the T-zone and nose. For good reason, ultrasonic therapy has become quite popular in recent years. Ultrasonic also is great for the maximizing penetration of serums. Because ultrasound therapy is non-invasive and does not requireany downtime, clients don’t have to worry about missing time off from work. For a special event, it's great pared with an Oxygen facial for an immediate glow and also is an investment in age prevention. You may experience temporary redness and slight swelling, these symptoms subside quickly. The entire procedure usually lasts between 45-60 minutes. While the results of ultrasonic therapy can last, you will likely need a treatment monthly for a few and then maintenance, occasionally to get the best results. Although the cost of ultrasonic treatment may seem expensive at first, it’s quite affordable in comparison to aggressive peels or lasers.
Like ultrasound therapy, radio frequency therapy is another safe way to tighten your facial skin. Better than laser (surface only) because it safely penetrates deep layers. This should appeal to women who want to avoid the risks that come with surgery. It’s been cleared by the FDA for more than 15 years and many high-profile celebrities rave about how well it works.
So, what exactly is radio frequency therapy? Similar to ultrasound therapy, it triggers the growth of collagen(neocollagenisis) and cell turnover by sending heat deep beneath the skin. However, radio frequency energy is used to cause thermal damage which pushes collagen fibers tightly together. Soon after and with multiple treatments, your skin will gradually start to tighten and
exhibit a younger glow. Redness around the face is the most common side effect, which should go away after 24 hours.
Although radio frequency therapy isn’t an invasive treatment, I still take the necessary steps to deter side effects. Before the treatment is performed, you can request a numbing cream applied to the skin to minimize any discomfort. A gel will be used as well, which helps the device to smoothly glide over the skin.
Radio frequency treatments are quick and easy. You can even get it done during your lunch break. The average session only takes around 45 minutes. Keep in mind that radio frequency skin tightening is not a quick fix. Clients need to receive about three-six treatments on average and then, 2-3 maintenance treatments yearly.
Radio frequency therapy is easier on the wallet than some other skin tightening treatments.
So….you begin to see more wrinkles, scarring, stretch marks, hair loss, lax-sagging skin, brows gone wrong, these issues can have an impact on the way you perceive and feel about yourself. One of the best proactive services I offer is Micro-Needling
Although micro-needling might sound scary to some people, it’s a minimally invasive treatment. Micro-needling involves pricking your face with hundreds of tiny pins. Because these needles only cause minor puncture wounds, you’ll barely even feel them. First a topical anesthetic is applied to your skin. When performing a micro-needling treatment, a pen-like tool is used. It’s evenly moved across the skin. Your body perceives an injury to the skin, this induces the release of collagen and elastin fibers, part of the body’s natural healing process. While the procedure itself only takes about 45-60 minutes to complete. The optional use of a topical anesthetic usually takes 20-30 minutes to take affect which allows for prep time.
After receiving micro-needling therapy, your body responds by increasing collagen and elastin production. This treatment definitely helps to counter the effects of aging. New, more vibrate skin gradually starts to emerge. Over time, you can look forward to seeing noticeably fewer wrinkles and more vibrant skin.
Micro-needling has definitely proved to be effective. According to a study, four micro-needling sessions can increase collagen production by 400 percent. You only need to receive one session per 1-2 month.
Micro-needling is generally safe for most people. Nevertheless, it’s not advisable for pregnant women. You should also avoid micro-needling when using certain acne products.
* Micro-needling is also effective in breaking up pigment in eyebrows when an old tattoo or blading needs correction.
