Human skin has a complicated relationship with sunlight. On one hand, sunlight supports bone density and promotes production of vitamin D. On the other hand, too much sunlight can lead to hyperpigmentation and premature aging at best, or even lethal cancers at worst.
The difference between beneficial light and damaging light is a matter of wavelength, intensity, and duration of exposure. But when dialed in for a specific purpose, there’s little laser light can’t do for revitalizing, correcting, and tightening skin.
At Regeneris Medspa & Cosmetic Surgery in Boston, MA, we’re using the latest laser systems to enhance and tighten skin. Developments in cosmetic dermatology allow us to handle a range of common skin concerns in minutes. But what are the leading skin tightening and skin resurfacing treatments? How can they help?
Skin Resurfacing, Skin Tightening, & Skin Rejuvenation
The color of your skin, eyes, and hair is determined by the amount of melanin your body produces. But no matter your natural skin tone, light energy generally translates to heat energy throughout the dermis.
To create the best results, our skin tightening and skin rejuvenation procedures introduce heat to one or all of the skin layers, including the epidermis (top layer), dermis (middle layer), and hypodermis (bottom layer).
Skin laxity (looseness) can cause all sorts of problems as we age. Loose skin around our jawline, under our eyes, or under our arms can damage our confidence and make us look older than we feel. Thankfully, by combining radiofrequency (RF) waves and ultrasound energy, the Exilis Ultra inspires skin to tighten up, reduces wrinkles, and sharpens contours wherever it’s applied.
By heating up multiple layers of skin, Exilis Ultra inspires your body to produce more and more collagen—a structural protein responsible for the firmness, quality, and healing factor of skin. A supercharged production of collagen leads to firmer, bouncier skin that’s more resistant to cracking, wrinkling, and gravity.
Exilis Ultra can be used to firm up skin in numerous areas of the face and body, including the forehead, neck, chin, jowls, hands, buttocks, abdomen, and elsewhere.
One of the most common challenges of introducing laser light into skin is the barrier that the skin itself forms. To create the greatest results, heat needs to be introduced into the hypodermis (lowest layer) where it can ramp up collagen production. Other popular cosmetic treatments (such as microneedling & RF microneedling) bypass this issue by using microneedles to create equally fine channels into the skin. But there is another way.
The LaseMD fractional laser system uses nanometer-precise wavelengths to create microchannels. Once created, laser light & heat travel down these microchannels to boost production of collagen and elastin which, in turn, reduces skin laxity, improves skin texture, and tightens contours. LaseMD can even assist in the healing of new and old scars or reduce/eliminate hyperpigmentation and sun damage.
Best of all, LaseMD fractional laser technology can go where microneedling can’t for customized skin rejuvenation wherever you need it.
Although the LaseMD relies on some of the same principles as microneedling, leading-edge microneedling devices have advantages of their own. The Laser Genius RF microneedling system represents the next, best evolution in this skyrocketing treatment option.
The Laser Genius improves the microneedling process by using finer and smoother needles for the creation of microchannels. Afterwards, a consistent radiofrequency feedback monitor adjusts energy delivery for a more uniform warming of skin.
Laser genius also allows for deeper or shallower penetration as-needed, making this microneedling solution one of the most versatile on the market today. The Laser Genius can treat areas where other microneedling devices could only dream of going, including the face, neck, décolletage, arms, and knees.
