You are kicking it back in Nyack, when your girlfriend starts complaining about how old and wrinkled you are looking these days. She is not even sure you are happy a lot of the time, because the frown lines between your eyebrows give you a look of being mildly annoyed when you look her way. Then there is all that sagging skin around your jowls, under your chin and forming your turkey neck. And did she happen to mention you look tired all the time too? Looking old, upset and tired all the time is not a good combination of visible traits for a fun loving guy like yourself. You want people to see the youthful soul that you harbor deep inside, but your skin is telling a very different story. To keep your skin from betraying your efforts, you need to find some way to get your skin to tighten back up again. But, you really are not sure what your options for skin tightening are at this time. Our team in Nyack can help!
BOTOX® and Fillers
If all you needed was a little tighter skin to get rid of some forming fine lines, then BOTOX® would be an good treatment option to help you get your face looking tight and youthful again. BOTOX® blocks the signal between the nerve and the muscle tissue to help prevent muscle tissue involvement in fine line formation, and other fillers help to provide lift to the skin to cause the skin to stretch tighter. While this will not work to resolve all your issues, it may be part of a treatment option you use in conjunction with other procedures.
Many nonsurgical approaches to skin tightening use heat to attempt to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. This is sometimes done with lasers that can provide both ablative and nonablative treatments to the skin. While ablative laser settings work on shaving layers off the epidermis (the top layer of skin), the nonablative lasers penetrate deep into the dermis (lower layer of skin).
Lasers have the function of using photon energy to create heat, which initially does damage to these two layers of skin, but this damage also provokes the body to respond with a healing process that creates collagen and elastin. The formation of collagen and elastin in the dermis will create lift which stretches the skin tighter. The formation of collagen and elastin in the epidermis will replace the damaged skin with tighter, newer surface skin. The end result is a younger, fresher looking you that can potentially take numerous years off the way you presently look. This is good news, because it means that you do not need to necessarily go the surgical route to achieve this effect.
Choosing a skin tightening procedure can help lift and firm your skin, and it can help create a younger appearance that makes you feel more confident. To learn more, contact us today at Lazur La Vie Laser Centre and Day Spa and schedule your consultation with our qualified team in Nyack, New York!
