Our aging is at the mercy of many forces as we age: sun, harsh weather, and bad habits. But we can take steps to help our skin stay supple and fresh-looking.
How your skin ages will depend on a variety of factors: your lifestyle, diet, heredity, and other personal habits.
There are other reasons, too. Primary factors contributing to wrinkled, spotted skin include normal aging, exposure to the sun (photo-aging) and pollution, and loss of subcutaneous support (fatty tissue between your skin and muscle). Other factors that contribute to aging of the skin include stress, gravity, daily facial movement, obesity, and even sleep position.
As we grow older, changes like these naturally occur:
- Skin becomes rougher.
- Skin becomes slack. The loss of the elastic tissue (elastin) in the skin with age causes the skin to hang loosely.
- Skin becomes more transparent. This is caused by thinning of the epidermis (surface layer of the skin).
- Skin becomes more fragile. This is caused by a flattening of the area where the epidermis and dermis (layer of skin under the epidermis) come together.
Changes below the skin also become evident as we age. They include:
- Loss of fat below the skin in the cheeks, temples, chin, nose, and eye area may result in loosening skin, sunken eyes, and a "skeletal" appearance.
- Bone loss, mostly around the mouth kin around the mouth.
A variety of highly effective methods have been used to treat the facial skin lesions associated with photo-aging. However, most patients complain of discomfort during the treatment and must also be concerned with the risk of infection and scarring, as ablative methods completely disrupt or remove the epidermis in a direct manner.
with the power of advanced technology, IR radiation procedure produces a temperature-independent stimulatory effect on the proliferation of human fibroblasts and collagen synthesis in vivo. Moreover, infrared therapy uses long light waves (830nm), which can penetrate deeply into the skin and result in beneficial effects on skin texture and wrinkles by increasing collagen and elastin in the dermis through stimulation of fibroblasts.
In simple terms, these visible lights penetrate the skin where they can enhance cell function, resulting in healthier, clearer skin and a reduction in the visible signs of aging.
It is a safe, non-invasive treatment and clients have seen great results with that they had not been able to achieve with other treatments.
Red light therapy also stimulates how cells make energy, giving them a higher metabolism. This means the cells function better, including making proteins like collagen more. Collagen keeps skin elastic and plump and gives an overall youthful appearance.
