The facial skin is made up of three distinct layers: a visible outer layer on the surface called the epidermis, a collagen-rich underlayer beneath the surface called the dermis, and an inner layer beneath the dermis called the subcutaneous layer, also known as the fat layer that has a web of collagen fibers running through it.
When the collagen in these three layers break down due to sun
exposure, family heredity, or the normal aging process, your face begins to sag and wrinkle. Naturally, treatments that work on just the surface can't do anything to restore the collagen in the deep layer or the innerlayer of your skin.
Skin Tightening is a cost-effective and non-invasive procedure for restoring a more youthful appearance to the face. The procedure is performed using a laser, radio frequency, or infrared light to deliver energy into the dermis. This energy causes soft tissue coagulation which leads to remodeling of the collagen within the dermis. Over time, this remodeled collagen helps to fill in wrinkles and restore elasticity to sagging skin.
