One of the most common concerns that comes with aging is loose skin. If your skin’s just not looking and feeling as tight and firm as it once did, D. Jonathan Bernardini, MD, and his team at New Age Aesthetics & Wellness, located in Parker, Colorado, can help. Dr. Bernardini uses the highly advanced Optima+ Laser® laser to tighten, firm, and correct other skin problems. To learn more about skin tightening, book your visit by calling the office, or booking online today.
Skin starts to grow loose or saggy over time for one main reason: as you age, your body's natural stores of collagen and elastin start to dwindle. Collagen is the substance that supports your skin, while elastin helps you maintain good skin elasticity.
You may notice as you age, your skin doesn't quite spring back immediately after you make expressions like a deep frown. The depleted collagen and elastin can have a dramatic effect on your skin, etching in lines and wrinkles that make you look and feel much older than you really are.
Fortunately, it's possible to restore volume, smooth away lines, and correct other skin problems at New Age Aesthetics & Wellness thanks to the Optima+ Laser® and radiofrequency (RF) microneedling treatments.
The Optima+ Laser® laser delivers powerful laser energy pulses to the deeper layers of skin, where you produce collagen and elastin. The laser heat spurs your tissue into action, producing fresh collagen and elastin. Additionally, the Optima+ Laser® laser agitates your existing collagen, forcing your body to break it down and restructure it.
To ensure your comfort during your procedure, your provider may apply a topical anesthetic.
During RF microneedling treatments, Dr. Bernardini uses a device that emits mild waves of radiofrequency energy to the deep layers of your skin to stimulate collagen production. With RF microneedling, the RF energy is delivered through thin needles that penetrate your skin.
RF microneedling treatments can help correct dermal imperfections like enlarged pores, acne scars, wrinkles, sagging skin, and more.
You can expect some impressive results with skin tightening, including:
It takes your body some time to produce the new collagen and elastin, and it's a gradual process. You'll notice a steady improvement until the full results are evident at about three months post-treatment.
After your full results are apparent, you can decide whether you want further skin tightening treatments. Many patients are quite pleased with their results after only one skin tightening session.
If you love your results overall but want a bit more volume in a particular area, your provider might recommend facial fillers to complement your skin tightening procedure.
At New Age Aesthetics & Wellness, your treatments are always customized to meet your needs and goals, so don't hesitate to reach out for help. Call the office or book an appointment online today.
