Skin Tightening
Our skin, aside from forming the largest organ in the body, is responsible for providing us with a myriad of vital functions, ranging from shielding us from physical, thermal, solar, and viral threats to helping to regulate temperature and moisture levels, providing us with the ability to sense our physical environment, and helping to produce Vitamin D.  Given all these functions, it may seem strange that we typically focus on...
Injectable dermal fillers are relatively well-known as effective ways to address lost facial volume and lines or wrinkles. Laser skin tightening is a more recent technique that can be used in several situations to achieve similar results. This blog post discusses the circumstances when each technique is recommended.  Which situations are best handled by laser skin tightening? Laser skin tightening is an effective way to reduce or remove fine lines...
Most healthy adults require anywhere from seven to 9 hours of sleep each night. While the benefits of getting this much rest are plenty and varied, it appears many people don’t recognize the importance of getting high-quality sleep.  Indeed, recent reports have shown that nearly 30% of US adults get by with an average of six hours or less of sleep per night. While some, trainee doctors especially, may choose...
Collagen and elastin contribute significantly to the overall texture and resiliency of the skin. Collagen contributes to the firmness of the skin, while elastin helps the skin remain tight and recover from deformation.  What Causes Loose Skin? Anything that damages or degrades these two proteins can lead to wrinkles, lines and the eventual inability of the skin to recover its shape. Loose or sagging skin is generally caused by the...
We regularly remind our clients that choosing a non-invasive cosmetic treatment is only the first part of the dilemma. The other part is selecting who will perform it.  Injectable dermal fillers are one of the most commonly performed procedures, but here’s why it’s worth paying particular attention to experience and medical qualifications when choosing who to perform your procedure.  Why Some Fillers May Stretch the Skin Dermal fillers use injectable...
Losing skin volume and elasticity is part of the normal aging process, but skin laxity (or looseness) can occur from other circumstances, including when people are still relatively young. Generally, we all gradually lose collagen and elastin in the skin, leading to progressive loss of skin volume, firmness, and resiliency. What Treatments are Available for Loose Skin? Some short-term relief may be found by using skin tightening creams. However, now...
This week we want to focus on a lesser-known procedure that offers an effective way to tighten loose skin. And it’s easy, safe, non-invasive, and produces rapid results. Our skin is a complex organ, consisting of several interconnected layers. The tone, elasticity, and resilience of our skin are primarily due to a layer of densely interwoven collagen fibers in the dermis layer, and it’s this layer that is largely responsible...
You loathe your double chin, but not enough to have surgery to get rid of it. Now, cosmetic physicians can administer injections to resolve your double chin problem for good. It’s a new treatment called Kybella, approved by the FDA in 2015 for adults with “moderate to severe fat below the chin.”
What can I expect after treatment? A cool compress or gel pack may be applied for comfort following your treatment. Any redness or swelling should resolve within a few hours. What are the results I can expect? The full effects of the Laser Skin Tightening treatment appear gradually. It can take 2 to 6 months for full results, although some patients do see them a lot sooner. Full results will...
Laser heats up the collagen proteins to specific temperatures, creating a natural biological reaction that causes the collagen to contract and thicken. The result is the beginning of tighter, smoother skin. In addition to the initial thickening of collagen, the body responds in another way to the heating of the collagen fibers. When the skin is wounded, its natural response is to heal the wound by creating new collagen. This...
