In order to better understand how a non-surgical face-lift works, it’s helpful to understand the forces at work in aging skin. As you age, your skin’s collagen production naturally slows, leaving you with skin that doesn’t bounce back as readily. Over the years, the well-worn paths of your facial expressions begin to become permanent lines as your skin loses its elasticity.
Gravity also weighs in as your skin begins to sag, especially when the thin layer of fat below the surface of your skin begins to migrate downward without the support of healthy collagen to keep it in place.
Finally, years of exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays causes your skin cells to break down more rapidly, leading to prematurely aging skin.
In traditional face-lifts, the surgeon cuts the skin around your hairline and draws your skin taut, removing any excess tissue. While effective, this surgery doesn’t come without risk and a lengthy recovery period.
A non-surgical face-lift relies on laser technology to renew your skin from the inside out by creating a collagen response that rebuilds the tissue beneath the surface. The laser energy passes harmlessly through the surface layer of your skin in order to tackle the cells deep inside your tissue, restoring the healthy foundation your skin enjoyed during your younger years.
The Profound laser system at Mannheim Med Spa tackles aging skin on three fronts by:
Using Profound, your med spa specialist delivers laser energy that heats up the layers beneath your skin to a precise temperature for a controlled amount of time to send your body into a mild healing response. This response includes renewed collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid.
As your skin responds to the Profound non-surgical face-lift, younger-looking, more vibrant skin reveals itself over the six to 12 weeks following your procedure.
How long you enjoy these results varies considerably, depending upon your skin and its response. The best part about this non-surgical face-lift is that when age and gravity begin to show up again, you can return to Mannheim Med Spa for touch-up treatments.
