Body Tightening – Non Surgical
WHY DOES OUR SKIN LOSE ELASTICITY AND START TO SAG?
Our skin is tightened by a structure of collagen fibers in the dermis in a network of skin cells, fibers and blood capillaries. Below in the hypodermis or subcutaneous layer there is supporting fat tissue with strong and elastic collagen fibers, and the circulatory system.
As we age the collagen fibers break down and become less structured and elastic, and our repair and replacement of these becomes less efficient. External factors such as UV exposure and lifestyle can make this worse. This results in wrinkles and the changes in the deeper tissue lead to sagging often known as skin laxity.
In body areas, changes in and around fat cells in the hypodermis, where the supporting collagen fibers and circulatory system become impaired, lead to them becoming less compact and structured causing a raised and dimpled appearance of the skin, a problem known as cellulite.
What is Body Tightening ?
Body tightening involves using the Infra-red Laser to apply heat to the body and causing the skin to contract. This method Is similar to the laser facial therapy, but the intensity of the light is higher to penetrate thicker body skin.
Who Needs It?
People who having visible marks of ageing like saggy skin in the face, neck can take up the laser tightening procedure in order to tighten their skin. It can bring back youthful looks which also can stay for longer period of time without much maintenance.
The treatment involves heating the saggy regions with Radio Frequency which provides heat in the body. The heat must be limited so that it does not damage the tissues. The skin gets contracted due to the heat and tightens itself. Additional tightening happens over time. Optimal results can be obtained in few sessions, but visible changes can be seen from the very first session.
