Did you know the largest organ in your body is your skin? Making up about 16% of your body, your skin is responsible for:
- Protecting your body from environmental factors like sun radiation, pollution, and germs
- Body temperature regulation
- Storing water, vitamin D, and fat
- Receiving sensory information
As you age, collagen production slows down significantly. Collagen is a protein that accounts for about 33% of the protein for your entire body. When collagen production slows down, your largest organ, the skin, loses its volume, which creates wrinkles.
Many people search for a way to “reverse the aging” process, by stimulating collagen using laser treatments. Read on to find out if laser treatment is right for you.
What is intense pulsed light (IPL)?
Intense pulsed light (IPL) uses light energy to target different colors in your skin. By delivering pulses of light to your skin, the skin is heated and eliminates unwanted cells, evening out the tone* of your skin.
You may be a good candidate for IPL if you have:
- Fine lines and/or wrinkles
- Age spots
- Redness from rosacea
- Dark spots from hormonal changes
- And more
In some cases, an IPL device can be coupled with an RF device for maximum results.
What is radio frequency (RF) microneedling?
Radio frequency (RF) microneedling uses tiny needles and radio frequency waves to “penetrate” the skin in a controlled way to create new, healthy skin by triggering the production of new collagen a more rejuvenated skin appearance. Essentially, this process allows your skin to heal itself and correct:
- Acne scarring
- Loose, sagging skin
