As your body’s primary defense shield, your skin suffers from a lot of abuse and damage. It guards your organs from harmful UV rays, extreme temperatures, bacteria, viruses, and a multitude of bruises, bumps, and scrapes.
It’s easy to take your skin for granted – as many people do.
Although everyone begins life with baby smooth, tight skin, it’s no surprise that as you age, your skin undergoes drastic changes like wrinkles, discoloration, and other blemishes you wish you could erase.
Many of these changes are due to extrinsic aging – unavoidable factors like habitual muscle movement and sun exposure. Other changes like dryness, sagging skin, and age spots can be caused by hormone changes as you age.
As you age, your skin will likely become drier and even become itchy. This is because as your body ages, it produces fewer natural moisturizing oils due to a decrease in hormone production. Dry skin can be a cause of sagging skin and wrinkles, as your body has less Vitamin A. Vitamin A decreases collagen breakdown, a fibrous protein that helps maintain a skin’s firmness.
Sagging skin, also a change you may witness as you age, can be caused overtime by height changes and stretching skin during the transition from childhood to adulthood. Weight changes can also affect your skins elasticity – a decrease in body fat and less collagen, can result in saggy, droopy skin.
Weight changes and stubborn fat can also be a cause of aging, simply because of the body’s lymphatic drainage system and changing hormones. It can become more difficult to lose weight in certain areas on your body and can be difficult to tone your body due to saggy, loose skin.
Fortunately, there are non-invasive techniques that are proven to prevent and reverse the effects of aging without having to undergo invasive surgery.
More and more doctors are turning to SculpSure to melt away unwanted fat and help tone the body because of it’s proven results. SculpSure uses laser technology to kill fat cells in problem areas without harming the skin and surrounding tissue. Because the fat cells are destroyed with heat, this also helps tighten the skin in the process.
Pelleve and PelleFirm
The Pelleve System has been cleared by the FDA to erase wrinkles and reduce cellulite, helping reverse the signs of aging. Pelleve uses advanced radiofrequency energy to heat the deep layers of skin, which causes the skin to contract and tighten. It also increases collagen production. The same radiofrequency energy is used to heat and massage tissues and reduce the appearance of cellulite. Pelleve is also used for skin resurfacing to even out skin tone and rejuvenate the skin.
