Have you ever found yourself wondering how you can regain that smooth and tight skin you once enjoyed? If so, you should be encouraged to know that Thermage® may be just what you have been looking for. It is a non-invasive treatment that can set you on the right path.
Loose skin naturally comes with age. This is because substances like collagen and elastin are not produced in the same quantities they once were. The result is skin that does not naturally retract to its normal position when things like regular body movements cause it to be stretched. It also loses a considerable amount of its tightness and begins to sag. This will, in turn, lead to the development of lines and wrinkles. Add to this the fact that things like sun exposure over the years have taken their toll on the texture of the skin, and it is easy to see why you could benefit from treatments that give you smoother and tighter skin.
The lack of tightness to the skin can be attributed to the lack of collagen. It is a substance in the body that helps to hold tissue together. For the skin in particular, it provides fullness. During the younger years, your body produces enough of the substance to keep the skin tight and free from wrinkles. As its production starts to diminish, there is no longer an adequate amount of collagen to keep the skin tight. This naturally leads to loose skin.
Thermage® is a treatment method that uses state-of-the-art technology to smooth and tighten the skin. It works, in part, by stimulating the growth of increased amounts of collagen in the skin. As the collagen level increases, so will the tightness of the skin.
The full effects of the collagen restoration will not be realized for about two to six months. Collagen growth takes some time. It does not immediately appear after the treatment. Instead, things are set in motion for it to grow.
Once it reaches its peak level, the skin will have reached the level of tightness that you were hoping for. This does not mean, however, that it takes six months before any benefits from the treatment are noticed. In fact, you should notice some improvements within just days following the treatment.
