While fine lines, wrinkles and lax skin are all symptoms of the natural aging process, the main culprit behind these signs of aging is the gradual depletion of a protein found in the skin known as collagen. Collagen is what gives your skin it’s structure during your youth, keeping it smooth and firm. But as you age, collagen production gradually decreases, and the result is a loss of skin elasticity and strength. When the skin loses its elasticity, or ability to bounce back, it becomes saggy and loose in appearance, especially along the jawline and neck.
At Laserderm Dermatology & Cosmetic Laser Surgery, we offer a wide array of nonsurgical treatments that can dramatically lift and tighten aging tissues by naturally restoring the collagen levels in your skin, regardless of your age. Through the use of our highly-effective topical antioxidant treatments or FDA-approved Ultherapy, you can reverse signs of aging and restore the youthful and firm quality of your skin without the need for more invasive cosmetic procedures or downtime. We offer the following skin-tightening methods at our office:
While many patients are eager and willing to undergo the latest non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatments—from lasers to ultrasound therapy— sometimes combating signs of aging can be as simple as increasing the vitamins and antioxidants found in the skin. At Laserderm Dermatology & Cosmetic Laser Surgery, we offer several specially formulated serums, creams and facials that are infused with antioxidants to improve the health and youthful appearance of your skin. Many people with more severe signs of aging aren’t getting enough vitamins and antioxidants in their diet that helps to prevent damage to the skin cells. By introducing topical antioxidants into your skincare regimen, you can promote firmer and smoother looking skin that is healthier and more resistant to the aging process.
Ultherapy is the only non-invasive and FDA-approved treatment on the market that both lifts and tightens the skin on the brow, chin and neck as well as smooths wrinkles on the chest using ultrasound energy. This procedure works to stimulate collagen production by delivering focused ultrasound energy beneath the skin’s surface. In doing so, the regenerative process is initiated to produce new collagen over several months to restore the appearance of lax skin.
While some patients will see an immediate lifting effect right after their Ultherapy treatment, most patients will experience their best results after two to three months. The best part is there is no incisions, anesthesia or downtime needed to achieve dramatic and lasting results. Treatment sessions typically last no longer than an hour depending on your area of concern, and you are immediately able to resume your normal activities when you leave your appointment.
