Skin tightening treatments can go a long way in reversing some of the most common signs of aging like lines, wrinkles and sagging of the skin. These signs develop when the skin starts to loosen as it does with age. In order to tighten it once again, many people undergo surgical facelifts or body lifts to achieve a younger appearance. If you are one of the numerous individuals who prefer to avoid surgical procedures, you should check with us about ThermiSmooth®. It is a non-surgical way of tightening the skin. You can return to your normal life immediately after treatment and will not have to visit a hospital.
As you get older, your skin will start to loosen because there is not as much collagen present in it to keep it tight. Collagen is actually a protein. It is produced by the body in the lower layers of the skin and helps to add fullness to it. As a result, the skin will remain firm, tight and free from wrinkles. Collagen levels naturally drop, however, when the years start to add up. This drop necessarily causes the skin to loosen and wrinkles to develop. The skin often sags at this point too. The sagging usually occurs around the jowls and eyelids.
Treatments like ThermiSmooth® work by stimulating the skin to produce extra collagen in order to return the levels to what they once were. This also returns the skin to a level of firmness that was present before the collagen levels started to decline. In essence, the skin is jump-started to tighten itself. Once the skin responds to the treatment, the collagen will begin to grow and continue to do so until it reaches its peak. At that point, the skin should be tight enough that the lines and wrinkles will have disappeared.
ThermiSmooth® utilizes radiofrequency energy to tighten the skin. During the therapy, a unit is passed across the skin, delivering the energy as it goes. The settings on the equipment are such that the radiofrequency energy is focused onto the dermis, where collagen growth takes place. The dermis is located just below the epidermis, or outer layer of the skin. As the energy is absorbed, the tissue will become warmer. It is this warmth that stimulates collagen growth. In addition to the tightening of the skin that takes place gradually as the collagen grows, there could also be some immediate skin tightening due to the skin’s initial response to the therapy.
ThermiSmooth® skin tightening treatments are much more comfortable to undergo than some other methods of tightening the skin. ThermiSmooth® creates a gentle warming effect that a lot of people say feels like a warm massage.
