When you’re young, your skin has a thick layer of collagen that serves to smooth and plump the contours of your face. As you age your body loses much of that collagen, leaving your skin to pool and sag into lines, wrinkles, and folds.
If your skin has sustained damage over the years from sun exposure or environmental toxins, that damage will become more apparent as your skin wrinkles. The entire shape of your face can change, most notably in the areas beneath your eyes and at your jawline.
There are a number of great skin care products on the market, many of which can help your skin look more hydrated and smooth. None of these products, however, can address the underlying lack of support that occurs from lost collagen.
Laser therapy is a great way to achieve a more youthful appearance without the need for invasive surgical procedures. At Rejuv by Stages, the ICONⓇ laser platform is used for wrinkle reduction therapy.
This system delivers pulses of concentrated light deep within your facial tissue. A patented cooling system ensures the surface of your skin remains at a comfortable temperature. The deeper cells, however, are damaged by the laser energy.
That prompts your body to launch a strong healing response. It produces new collagen, which plumps your skin from the inside, smoothing wrinkles and restoring more youthful facial contouring.
The process is not painful, and you’ll begin to see results within a few weeks. At that point, you and your practitioner can determine if you need additional sessions to reach your aesthetic goals.
While laser therapy can create new tissue growth and lessen the appearance of lines and wrinkles, nothing can truly stop the aging process in its tracks. As time passes, you’ll continue to experience facial changes, including lost collagen.
There are ways, however, to extend your results. One thing to consider is the importance of choosing a healthy diet rich in fruits and vegetables. When your body has the fuel and hydration it needs to thrive, your skin looks its best.
Embracing a great skin care routine is also important. Be sure to wear a high-quality sunscreen every day, even when you won’t be out in the sun for extended periods of time. Choose a great cleanser and moisturizer, and consider adding a serum formulated for your specific skin type.
