laser 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...

Some short-term relief may be found by using skin tightening creams. However, now...

Loose skin is normally an indication of a loss of collagen and elastin in the skin, but may also be caused by the loss of muscle or fat layers beneath the surface. Loose...
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...
