Denver area doctors deliver options for tightening skin without surgery
The secret to tighter skin lies within
It is a common misconception that sags, droops, lines, wrinkles and folds are the result of skin stretching. While this can be the case with sudden weight loss, the primary cause of skin laxity is diminishing stores of collagen in deep skin layers. As we age our bodies produce less of this strong protein fiber that supports surface skin, and environmental factors like sun exposure and pollution further deplete collagen.
However, the human body has the ability to accelerate production of collagen when necessary for healing. For example, when the surface of skin is injured, such as from trauma or surgery, a great many new collagen bundles form in that spot to mend the wound. The scar that they create is strong, thick, and firm. The same thing is happening in deeper dermal layers; you just don’t see it.
Innovative skin tightening technologies put that information to use, to tighten skin from the inside out. They use various modalities such as infrared light or ultrasound energy to warm deep tissue layers without harm to the top strata of skin and with minimal discomfort. This carefully controlled “injury” demands extra collagen for internal healing. Over the course of a few months, skin lifts and tightens visibly in treated areas.
