Aging impacts the skin in several ways: the reduction of collagen production reduces firmness (after age 20, we make about 1 percent less collagen in the skin each year), less oil production causes drier skin, and less elastin production reduces elasticity). These gradual changes cause skin to loosen and fine lines to form.
In addition to these aspects of normal aging, sun and pollution cause skin to age prematurely. These environmental exposures lead to precancerous changes, sun-spot formation, and an exaggerated loss of collagen and elastin, uneven tone, discoloration, thin skin, and deep wrinkles.
Radiofrequency (RF) Skin Tightening treats loose skin on the face and body. It is painless and feels like a hot stone massage. RF microneedling has all of the benefits of classic microneedling and also lifts and tightens the skin.
Microneedling is great for stimulating collagen and elastin production to fill in areas of fine lines and wrinkles to reduce their appearance and smooth the skin. Neuromodulators help to decrease muscle movement and contractions to prevent new lines and wrinkles from forming.
Classic microneedling is the best melasma treatment for pigmentation on the forehead, around the eyes, above the lips, and on the cheeks. Your doctor will also likely recommend topical professional skin care products and prescriptions to make your microneedling procedure more effective.
Topical skin care products can help to decrease the appearance of acne scars, and microneedling fills in and smooths acne scars and also improves the tone and texture of the skin.
