Young, elastic skin depends on high amounts of structural proteins such as collagen and elastin. These proteins help your skin resist permanent changes like stretching, folding, or wrinkling. As we age, our bodies produce less of these structural proteins, making our skin more prone to show signs of age, such as fine lines and wrinkles.
Laser skin tightening stimulates your body to produce more structural proteins, primarily collagen, to restore your skin’s natural elasticity. It does this by creating a slight thermal injury in your skin that stimulates the skin’s healing response, resulting in firmer, tighter skin.
This is part of what makes SmartLipo so unique: it not only removes fat, but stimulates skin tightening at the same time to give better-looking results. Contact our Brooklyn, Queens, or Long Island location to book your appointment today!
After one treatment of LASER AND BOTOX Combo you’ll be completely refreshed! The laser Skin TIGHTENING procedure uses laser light energy to deeply heat dermal collagen, causing partial denaturation and contraction (tightening) of the collagen fibers. The heat will also stimulate the body’s natural healing process, attracting fibroblasts (the body’s repair cells) to the area to lay down a new collagen foundation. Both of these changes can lead to increased skin firmness. During the procedure, a powerful cooling system maintains a comfortable temperature for the outer surface of the skin, protecting it while allowing the laser energy to work in the deeper dermis. The laser also includes advanced temperature monitoring, which pinpoints when the proper safe temperature has been reached to allow for optimal collagen production!! The platysma muscle plays a direct role in the appearance of the neck as people age. Its position and thickness can determine how and when different individuals will show signs of aging. Over the course of time, thick vertical platysmal (or platysma) bands often become visible, running in a V-shape from the top portion of the neck to the base. These often pave the way for that “turkey gobbler” look. Properly administered Botox injections can relax this area and soften prominent neck bands.
