Regaining a young facial appearance involves overcoming many variables like poor skin texture, loss of volume, wrinkles, and sagging skin. The last of those—sagging skin—happens when the structural support of your skin – collagen – diminishes over time. A decrease in collagen causes wrinkle formation and volume loss, and the best way to keep youthful-looking skin is never to lose it.
Prevention may include regular sunscreen use and a good lifestyle – no smoking, exercise, low sugar and alcohol consumption, and drinking plenty of water. These disciplines will help retain healthy skin which is the key to avoid looking old before your time.
However, there will come a time when you will need help. When that time comes – tightening your skin will rely on its ability to stimulate multiple layers of cell activity to increase skin firmness and elasticity. As you age, you may experience one or more of the many signs of aging. But promoting collagen regeneration will lift and tighten your facial skin to avoid wrinkles, lines, and folds.
Where Skin Care Specialists Agree & Disagree
Plastic surgeons, dermatologists, and clinical aestheticians agree that maintaining collagen regeneration is critical for skin firmness and structure. They also agree that keeping melanin levels in check will reduce the risk of pigmentation problems like sun spots and liver spots.
Where they may disagree is which methods to use to maintain these benefits. Doctors and clinics often tend to like the technology they offer, but technology is ever evolving. So, the best treatment is often a moving target.
Traditionally, the treatments to tighten skin were either mild procedures or severe. Mild treatments stimulated collagen in the very top layer of skin using retinoids, peels, and mild laser treatment. The more severe treatments included surgical facelift, or CO2 peels, both involving higher risk and longer recovery.
Today There are Better Options
More people are opting for milder skin tightening procedures today than before. People with skin elasticity problems are opting for more natural treatments of elastin stimulation rather than an invasive procedure like a facelift. There is less risk, more convenience, and shorter recovery. Results are subtle, and you don’t have to hide away for weeks waiting for the incisions to heal.
The technology which has become the rage is LED light therapy. This treatment uses LED light delivering low energy to deep skin levels to stimulate collagen and elastin production for firm, tight, and elastic skin. With multiple treatments delivered consistently over several weeks, youthful skin can be retained providing a glowing complexion and skin beauty.
Once you attain your youthful skin, your results can be maintained with treatments once or twice a month. It’s quick and easy and LED light therapy is available at Medical spas, dermatology offices, and plastic surgery centers. But the best thing about this technology is that you can manage the treatments yourself at home.
This benefit ensures treatment regimens delivered consistently and on time. No need for scheduling with busy spas, or driving out of the way to make an appointment. Plus it’s the most cost-effective way to take advantage of this innovative technology.
