Our bodies have collagen in plentiful supplies, with the typical collagen forms consisting of densely packed fibers. These fibers help provide support to your skin structure as well as cartilage, tendons, connective tissue, bones, and teeth. Sadly, collagen production levels keep diminishing with age. The older you get, the less collagen your body produces.
That’s why older people tend to experience skin droops and sags with a higher chance of noticeable creases and fine lines. Most skin tightening procedures look to boost collagen production. In turn, the increase in collagen level in the body erases fine lines and wrinkles, thickens and firms the skin, and rebuilds new skin.
Pelleve is not only great for full face and neck rejuvenation, but you can choose to focus simply on those problem areas like your eyes, the lines around your mouth, or sculpt your jawline.
Skins tightening treatment works by exposing the dermis layer of the skin to heat.
This is the second skin layer that is found between the lower fat layer and the outer dermis. It is the layer where collagen supports the skin by creating latticework. Once the body senses that there is some heat, it perceives this as a sign that there is a wound or injury.
Although there is no wound in the heated area, the body responds by initiating its wound-healing mechanism. This mechanism involves remodeling the existing collagen in the affected area, which instantly firms the skin. The biggest change comes with the production of new collagen that thickens firms and improves the skin.
Anyone who is above the age of 40 is an ideal candidate for skin tightening. By this point, your skin is already showing signs of fine line and wrinkle development, and sagging. This is mainly due to the decline in collagen development in your body.
How long do skin tightening results last?
The new collagen your body produces after the procedure is permanent. Sadly, this doesn’t stop the continuous decline in collagen production. Although your skin benefits from the procedure-induced collagen increase, the natural collagen production decline could counter the benefits.
This is why committing to a series of treatments is essential, after which you can expect to enjoy the benefits of a boost in collagen production for close to a year. However, it is essential to commit to maintenance treatments once every six months or year so that you can maintain your collagen levels.
