One of the most prominent signs of aging is a sagging face. Wrinkles are a common complaint as well, but sagging skin in the face and neck comes in at first place as the biggest complaint. Sagging skin is a result of getting older, loving the sun without protection, and not proper skin care usage.
Your skin produces less oil, as you age making it become drier and loose. Cosmetic procedures can reverse the problem, and you do not always have to have invasive procedures with weeks of down time to reverse the signs of aging. Thermage, and I-Lipo are two of many procedures that will tighten and tone sagging skin without being invasive.
Thermage tightens and tones the skin by using radio frequency, and can be used; around the eyes, the entire face and the body even the knees. The cost of Thermage usually begins at $3500 and usually just one treatment is needed, but sometimes two procedures every 6-9 months is needed. There is some discomfort with Thermage and sometime the doctor does give a low-level pain pill when you do this treatment. .
I-Lipo therapy is one of the newest procedures that emits a low levels of laser energy that creates a chemical signal in the fat cells breaking down the stored triglycerides into free fatty acids and glycerol and releasing them through channels in the cell membranes. The glycerol and fatty acids are then moved around the body to tissues that will use it to create energy during the metabolism process. The I-Lipo process does take eight session to be effective in conjunction with at least 30 minutes of exercise after the treatment. The eight treatment sessions are usually sold in a package starting at $1600. The procedure is painless, you may feel warmth from the heat the laser is emitting, but no pain, and inches are lost after each session. I-Lipo can be used in the under chin area, arms, legs, and abdomen, but not anywhere on the face. Aerete Med-Spas with franchises in South and North Carolina are one of the first places to use this new, cutting edge, and painless procedure.
The goal of skin care is correction, prevention and then maintenance; after any procedure maintenance is the key so a great topical must be used to maintain. Image Skin Care Max products are called the platinum line for good reason, the stem cells and peptides combines helps to rebuild collagen, and tighten and firms the skin.
When looking for quality anti-aging think of the three words, correction, prevention and maintenance, because beautiful skin is healthy skin.
