Aging is a natural part of life and eventually, we all show the effects of time. When you’re young, your skin is elastic and is able to renew itself quickly. However, as you get older, it will to begin to wrinkle and sag. Here at Ava Laser Clinic, we want you to understand what is causing your skin’s appearance to change over time. Once you know the reasons why, we’ll explain a great treatment option to tighten your skin without surgery.
The reason your skin maintains its youthful look is due to a protein called collagen. This protein is available in abundance in your body and works to keep our skin firm. However, as we get older, our bodies progressively produce less. As you get older, the elastin in our skin also becomes weaker. This elastin helps our skin be able to return to its original position when moved, pinched, or poked. Without this elastin, skin becomes loose and wrinkly. Your muscles also support your skin. As the body ages, those supportive muscle groups begin to weaken. When you pair weak muscles, reduced collagen production, and less elastin, the result is sagging skin.
Natural aging is one of the leading causes of collagen loss, but it is not the only cause. Many other factors can contribute to a reduction in collagen production such as;
Certain habits such as smoking, drug use, and poor sleeping habits can also cause your skin to lose its radiance.
There is no way to stop the aging process completely, but there are treatments available for those that want to lift and tighten loose skin. The most commonly treated areas are the face, neck, décolletage, thigh and butt. By obtaining treatment, these people are able to boost their confidence and restore a more youthful look.
Although there are several options available to you, we recommend that the minimally invasive (or non-invasive) options be your first choice. Non-surgical facelifts and skin tightening treatments are readily available at our laser clinic in Richmond Hill. Many of these treatments make use of RF energy to alleviate skin laxity conditions.
RF energy utilizes heat. This heat is transferred to the underlying dermis layer which triggers collagen production and restores elastin functionality. There is no damage to the top layer of your skin which results in a smoother, tighter, and brighter surface. The results develop over time and making the appearance more natural. These treatments are effective in every part of the body making them a viable yet safe alternative to cosmetic surgery.
Patients who pair their RF energy treatments with good skincare and a proper diet can improve their long term results. Making use of sunscreen, reducing stress, and taking nutritional supplements like an organic collagen tablet or a bowl of brown both (which is rich in collagen) will further improve results.
