WRINKLES & SAGGY SKIN

WHAT CAUSES WRINKLES AND SAGGING SKIN?

Wrinkles and saggy skin develop as part of the natural aging process. Collagen and elastin fibers become damaged and fewer are produced. As a result, wrinkles and grooves appear. External factors, such as exposure to the sun, pronounced facial expressions, and weight loss can also have an influence. Sun damage often goes hand in hand with pigment abnormalities or hyperpigmentation – link to pigmentation spots. There are several effective treatments available against wrinkles and saggy skin.

Exposure to UVB plays a major role in the development of wrinkles and saggy skin, which is why we also use the term ‘solar elastosis’. Curious to see what kind of an impact sunlight can have on your skin? Compare the skin on the inside of an older person’s upper arm with their face and arms. You will notice that the skin on the upper arm is still smooth and supple, while the other skin is covered in wrinkles. Photoaging is the aging of the skin caused by repeated exposure to the sun over a lifetime.

LASERTREATMENT FOR WRINKLES

One of the causes of wrinkles and sagging skin is that less collagen and elastin are produced by your body. A laser treatment stimulates the production of these body’s own substances.

We treat sagging skin with the SkinTyte laser. The skin will actively produce more collagen and elastin. The treatment works with infrared and visible light. This light heats the dermis while the epidermis remains cooled. During the treatment, we measure the temperature of the skin with a laser thermometer until a temperature of 38-42 degrees is reached.

Collagen and elastin fibers become firmer as a result and are newly produced in large numbers. The production of new collagen takes 6 weeks to 6 months.

After treatment, the skin feels tight and may be somewhat red. You need a minimum of 4 treatments at 3-4 week intervals and optimal results are visible after 3 to 6 months.

WHAT ARE THE RESULTS OF THE TREATMENT?

The result of the treatment depends on your skin condition and the treatment you choose. Our goal is to bring out your natural beauty and give you smoother, tighter and radiant skin.
