Wrinkles are those unwanted lines and folds in the skin that develop over time. For most, they show up much too soon. In fact, they can make you look older than you actually are. For this reason, you may be among the many people who seek treatment by non-surgical means in order to get rid of these wrinkles. To understand how most of these non-surgical methods work, a basic knowledge of how the wrinkles get there in the first place can be helpful.
In the lower layers of the skin is a substance called collagen. This is a protein that the body naturally produces to hold tissue together. It will also give the skin a fuller appearance and a tighter feel. When we are young, our bodies produce collagen in sufficient amounts to keep the skin tight and smooth. As we begin to age, our bodies produce less of this substance. This causes the skin to lose that tightness that was present during our youth. This looseness then gives way to sagging and the development of wrinkles. A lot of people undergo surgery in the form of a face lift to pull the skin tight again. However, you can also choose from many effective non-surgical skin tightening methods that don’t come with the same risks and downtime as surgery. This means that you can go about your normal duties after treatment without having to schedule some time away for recovery.
Of the non-surgical skin tightening treatments that are commonly used today, most of them work by stimulating the production of collagen in the lower layers of the skin. Since inadequate collagen levels cause looseness, restoring it to higher levels will also restore fullness and tightness. As a result, the treated skin will look smoother and younger.
At MacMed Spa, we offer several methods of non-surgical skin tightening. Laser toning is a popular treatment that improves the appearance of fine wrinkles without the need for any anaesthesia or downtime.
Micro-needling is another popular skin tightening method. This treatment promotes the skin’s natural healing process, boosting both collagen and elastin production. The result is smoother, tighter, more youthful skin.
We also offer an innovative treatment called microcurrent skin tightening. This revolutionary technique utilizes gentle microcurrent electricity to improve circulation, hydrate and lift the skin, and stimulate collagen and elastin production. As microcurrent skin tightening does so many beneficial things at once, clients are left with noticeably brighter, healthier and rejuvenated skin. This safe and effective treatments can be used on many different areas of the body.
The full benefit of these treatments will continue over time as collagen production reaches its peak. They set the wheels in motion for collagen growth, which means that while you will see some immediate results, they will continue to greatly improve over the course of a few weeks depending on the type of treatment you choose. As an added benefit, our non-surgical skin tightening methods can be safely repeated if you ever feel you need a touch up.
