For those hoping to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and get smoother looking skin, the good news is that there are now a wide variety of different treatments available. Anyone considering a procedure to reduce wrinkles in the near future should know about the latest advancements for skin tightening and more.
The goal of 3DEEP treatments is to reduce wrinkles by stimulating collagen growth in the sub-dermal layers. As people age, their normal collagen begins to break down and become less effective at keeping their skin smooth and clear. It has been shown that applying heat at the dermal and sub-dermal levels can stimulate collagen regeneration and renew skin through the body’s own natural processes. This is a non-invasive treatment that uses RF heat to provide targeted skin renewal with no surgery or down time.
Peptide treatments help to reduce wrinkles with as little as one simple masque application. This begins with cleansing and analyzing the skin to create a masque that will fit the specific skin care needs of the patient. Once the masque has been formulated, the patient will experience a quick and easy peel-off process that leaves skin instantly rejuvenated. Peptide treatments are perfect for reducing fine lines, improving texture and clarity of skin tone, and keeping skin healthy by encouraging the absorption of helpful peptides.
DermalPen treatments are one of the best ways for people with large pores, acne scars and stretch marks to improve their skin’s appearance. This device creates tiny abrasions in the dermal layer with multiple tiny needles. These precisely placed needles will cause the body’s natural skin repairing process to kick in and get to work on the area. Patients report seeing a reduction of visible scars within six hours of treatment, and there is no recovery time needed.
Platelet Rich Plasma is a series of injections using the body’s own natural skin repairing tools. The doctor will do a small blood draw and use it to extract plasma with a high percentage of platelets. These platelets are the cells within the body that naturally act to reconstruct and strengthen your skin after an injury or sun damage. By reintroducing your body’s own platelet rich plasma into targeted sites, the skin will instantly begin repairing itself without any outside chemicals or invasive procedures. In many cases, PRP is used in conjunction with other skin therapies to provide a more thorough and effective treatment.
Thermage is another RF-based treatment option that works to stimulate natural collagen production by applying heat. There is no recovery time and it can be used on all areas of the body, face and even on the delicate skin around the eyes. It has proven effective in reducing wrinkles after the very first treatment.
Botox is one of the most commonly known cosmetic treatments available. Patients receive small injections at the site of wrinkles around the eyes and in the forehead. This procedure reduces wrinkles instantly for a short period of time, and is clinically proven to be highly effective with few side effects.
