Low Level Laser Therapy For Facial Rejuvenation
Low Level Laser Therapy for Facial Rejuvenation
The demand for noninvasive methods of facial and body rejuvenation has experienced exponential growth over the last decade. There is a particular interest in safe and effective ways to decrease skin laxity and smooth irregular body contours and texture without downtime. These noninvasive treatments are being sought after because less time for recovery means less time lost from work and social endeavors. Radiofrequency (RF) treatments are traditionally titrated to be nonablative and are optimal for those wishing to avoid recovery time. Not only is there minimal recovery but also a high level of safety with aesthetic RF treatments.
Radio Frequency Facial Skin Tightening, is a minimally invasive procedure that tightens the skin and improves tone without any pain or downtime. Radio Frequency (RF) facial treatments work by using heat to trigger collagen and elastin production in the skin’s deeper layers. The results are instant. Your skin will look more supple and lifted. The treatment involves third generation radio frequency technology that offers a non-invasive, pain-free treatment to help firm skin and boost collagen production. It’s a pretty versatile treatment as it can also help reduce flabby skin, contour and tighten a post pregnancy tummy, reduce fine lines and wrinkles (on the face and body). What’s more, Radio Frequency (RF) Skin Tightening comes with the guarantee that you won’t need any recovery time.
How does it work? The radio frequency energy penetrates the skin layers to selectively heat the skin tissue where the collagen fibres are embedded. The local heating causes an immediate contraction of the collagen fibres. Fat cells drain, then shrink, while those all important fibroblast cells (part of our connective tissue), are stimulated to produce new collagen and elastic fibres. The effect is tighter, smoother, younger looking skin with a visible ‘lift’.
When can I expect to see results? Most patients will be able to notice immediate results in the tightness of their skin. More results continue to emerge in the days following the treatment. Skin is remarkably smoother and muscle tone is more visible too. Normally, multiple sessions are required. Dr. Nixon will provide you a plan in advance, so you will know what to expect.
Are there any side effects? You can expect some occasional redness that is usually gone within 30 minutes post-treatment.
