Light therapy, red light therapy to be specific, set at 633nm, is used to reverse skin deterioration due to aging. This light stimulates the production of collagen and enhances blood flow to provide oxygen and nutrients to the skin. Collagen is a connective tissue responsible for the elasticity nature of the skin and, therefore, its increased production leads to the eventual tightening of the skin. The nutrients provided maintain the health and rejuvenation of the skin.
Fractional laser therapy is the most advanced form of laser therapy for aging skin treatment. This procedure utilizes an array of microbeams to target and stimulate a self-healing process in both the dermis and the epidermis layers of the skin. By promoting a self-healing process, the skin develops new tissue including collagen and elastin, restoring a smooth and healthy skin. Fractional laser resurfacing is a non-invasive and safe skin treatment method.
Botox, or botulinum toxin type A, is a skin treatment procedure used to remove wrinkles by relaxing the muscles causing them. It’s injected directly into the target area. The toxin’s effect lasts for a few months, which means that regular injections are necessary to maintain the acquired look.
Ultherapy is a skin treatment procedure that uses ultrasound waves to stimulate the development of healthy and smooth skin. The waves produced during this treatment procedure prompt an increased production of collagen. As a connective tissue, collagen restores the skin’s elasticity eradicating skin aging effects.
