In order for the tightening treatment to be effective, it must reach the skin. Any treatment that works only on the surface, can improve the appearance of the skin, but will not significantly affect the firmness.
Some of the effective treatments that we have today in Cosmetic Medicine work by causing an increase in collagen and elastin, thus adding to the skin radiance, rejuvenation, and well-being.
To understand how skin tightening works, we must first understand how skin works.
The skin has three layers: the epidermis on the outside, the dermis in the middle, and the hypodermis on the inside of the skin.
For the purpose of maintaining firmness in the skin, the level that is most important is the dermis, the middle layer.
The skin contains collagen and elastin, proteins necessary for the skin to be elastic, strong, and hydrated.
As we grow older our body no longer produces enough protein and the ones we have are not functional enough to maintain the same condition of our skin.
Sun exposure as well as exposure to chemical and environmental agents act against the preservation and reconstruction of our skin.
Many treatments, with the right personalization for each patient case and, of course, with the necessary state of the art equipment, can be applied in our dermatological offices. Some of them, which have been analyzed in the respective Sections of our SITE are descriptively the following:
- Laser Treatments
- Chemical peelings and treatments for skin imperfections (scars, blotches, etc.)
- Injectable hyaluronic acid and collagen implants
- Stem cells
- Lifting with Threads
