No one can stop
time, or the effect it has on the body. With each passing year, the body
changes somehow and the older we get, the more wear starts to become evident.
This is especially true with skin. Wrinkles, dry, or sagging skin are common
side effects of getting older.
There’s no shame in
aging, but you can take steps to keep your skin healthy and rejuvenated with
some of our laser treatment anti-aging procedures.
As women age, their
bodies produce less estrogen which can cause an increase in cellulite.
Cellulite has a bumpy "cottage cheese” appearance and can appear on your thighs
and arms, as well s the stomach. Verjú works by releasing fatty lipids from fat
cells, causing fat cells and cellulite to shrink. This procedure can reduce
cellulite by 25-50%, and even helps you to lose inches of fat that might have
accumulated as you become less active with age. It’s non-invasive laser
technology and with green diodes as the lasers used in Verjú, it’s never been
Loose Skin: EndyMed
Is your skin looser
than it once was? If you think of all the changes your body has gone through
with you over the years, it’s no wonder that your skin might have lost some of
its original tightness. EndyMed can help you get it back. EndyMed uses lasers
to apply heat to collagen, which causes it to shrink and triggers the process
to create new collagen. The result is tighter skin with a healthy glow. It’s
commonly used on the face, but treatments can be done on the body as well.
Damage and Wrinkles: IPL/Photofacial
Of course, the most
commonly discussed aging effect on skin tends to be creases in the skin that
come with age. Wrinkles and laugh lines become more prevalent as we get older,
and for some, these symptoms of aging appear sooner than they expected. For
those, IPL lasers may be the answer. IPL lasers again focus on triggering the
production of new collagen, but in this case for a different purpose than
tightening the skin. The goal of photofacials is to add a healthy glow to your
skin and to smooth out signs of age or exposure. It can be used to help with
wrinkles, sun damage, and broken capillaries. If you’re looking for a way to
just refresh your skin and give it a youthful appearance again, a photofacial
may be what you need.
Aging is a part of
life, and it’s not necessarily a bad part of life. For many, aging is a point
of pride, a show of how much you’ve experienced. But that doesn’t mean your
skin’s best days have to be over. These are just a few procedures that can help
your skin regain its youthful, refreshed character, even as you continue to
age. If you’re interested in Verjú, EndyMed, IPL, or any of our other
non-invasive laser aesthetics procedures, contact Regatta Chiropractic today.
