Beauty and physical attractiveness are constantly emphasized as desirable and admirable characteristics in our societies. Aging is an integral part of life, and we need to embrace and celebrate it. But it is not easy to witness the loss of youthfulness in our skin.
From a cosmetic point of view, achieving anti-wrinkle skin is no longer an unattainable dream. Indeed, aesthetic medicine therapy has made immense progress and is today able to reverse the most visible signs of aging.
One of the worse enemies of our skin is sun exposure. Sun causes the degradation of collagen and elastin in the skin and its damaging effect become more apparent with age. Sun-damaged skin is one that sags and has a deflated appearance, and wrinkles are seriously worsened.
To counteract the devastating effects of sun damage, skin tightening and resurfacing can be done effectively with energy-based devices. Those heat up collagens which contracts and in turn tighten the skin on the surface. The treatments are not invasive as they require no incisions, they cause no bleeding or bruising, and there is no downtime for the patients. They use radio frequency technology, which has been proved to be safe for patients with darker skin types.
It is a nonsurgical, physician-administered treatment that can temporarily reduce moderate to severe wrinkles in people 18 to 65 years of age.
