The decline in both quantity and quality of elastin is one of the leading causes of facial skin aging. Elastin is responsible for giving your skin its elasticity and resilience. A loss of elastin leads to skin that gradually becomes lax, which develops into sagging skin that can really give away your age. The good news is that Sacramento residents live in an exciting era of tremendous advances in cosmetic dermatology that allow us to safely tighten lax skin to help you turn back the clock on an aging face and body using non-surgical skin tightening.
Microneedling is an advanced non-surgical treatment involving the delivery of controlled injuries to the surface layers of your skin. We use a small device to form thousands of microscopic holes in your skin that your body responds to by producing new collagen and elastin fibers. In addition to its ability to treat skin conditions like lines and wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks, and hyperpigmentation, microneedling can also treat mild skin sagging by increasing facial skin volume.
This treatment in Sacramento is ideal for many individuals who are looking to avoid chemicals or more invasive treatments. Almost anyone qualifies, but our professionals will make sure this is a good fit for you at your consultation.
Laser skin tightening is a non-surgical, minimally invasive procedure using a laser to tighten your skin by directing thermal energy into collagen found under the surface of your skin, leading it to tighten or contract. Right after your laser skin tightening procedure, you should notice some immediate results. This procedure is extremely popular because it does not involve any downtime and has a very low risk of adverse events.
Some additional skin tightening will develop in the weeks after your treatment. Maximum results are usually obtained after two or three treatments spaced about one month apart. The FDA has approved laser skin tightening for reducing fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. Although laser treatments do not offer results as drastic as some forms of conventional cosmetic surgery, you should enjoy good results with no downtime.
