Skin moisture and radiance is tough to maintain in cold weather. Frequent exposure to the Wyoming weather can do a number on the appearance of your skin. This is especially true for those of us past thirty. As we age our skin’s collagen and elastin production declines, causing sagging. When combined with wrinkles, age spots, and blemishes, this can make us look much older than we feel. Luckily, there is something that can be done to combat signs of aging. At The Wyoming Medical Wellness Center, we offer an excellent set of skin tightening devices created to improve your look with little to no downtime. Our devices can also provide stretch mark and cellulite reduction as well.
Why Skin Tightening?
Before the use of laser technology, the only way to achieve tighter skin was to get plastic surgery. With recent advances in medicine, significant results can now be seen without complicated surgical procedures. This is great news for those of us who want to look better but are reluctant to go under the knife. The best part is that using lasers for skin tightening, stretch mark, and cellulite reduction leads to improved collagen production, allowing your skin to naturally repair and improve over time. This added benefit means that you can have natural-looking results without having to go through a long recovery period.
Skin Tightening Treatment Options
ICON is a non-surgical laser treatment that uses two laser wavelengths to reverse the aging process. Due to its design, the ICON can address several trouble areas as once. After just one session you can see notable stretch mark and cellulite reduction, as well as a decrease fine lines and wrinkles, spider veins, acne scars, and more. Over time, these areas will show further improvement as your skin produces more collagen.
This FDA-approved skin tightening device was made to address laxity in the face. The Envi works by using high-frequency radio heating. The heat radiated from TempSure Envi is made of concentrated RF waves that stimulate the production of collagen. By increasing the protein’s content, the device not only tightens facial skin, but also promises long term skin rejuvenation.
Results of Skin Tightening
After a session with ICON, you may notice a slight darkening in your treatment area. This is completely normal and will heal over time. As your body produces more collagen, you will notice tighter skin, stretch mark and cellulite reduction, and a reduction in wrinkles over the course of several months. Treatment with the Envi might cause some initial redness. This redness is due to the skin’s elevated temperature during treatment and will quickly subside after the procedure. Skin tightening results with TempSure Enve will vary. However, most see optimal results in the weeks and months following treatment. For both devices, 3-4 sessions are recommended for best results.
