There are many different treatments that can be used for facial firming, some that are not effective and some that are effective, but are also very expensive and painful.
Facial firming methods
Aging in the skin involves a loss of the skin’s firming properties, collagen and elastin, deep in the skin’s supporting layer, the dermis. Not only is the synthesis of these properties greatly reduced as we age, but the cells that actually produce collagen and elastin also diminish. All this results in sagging and wrinkled skin.
These noticeable signs of aging are why women, and men, in droves search for an effective facial firming technique. These include facial firming creams, as well as treatments like facials, photofacials and laser/thermage.
Creams, facials, photofacials and thermage
In a nutshell, most facial firming creams are simply not effective. This is because, unless the cream is medical grade, it cannot penetrate down to the skin’s dermis to do any good, and medical grade creams cannot be sold at pharmacies, supermarkets or department stores.
Similarly, most facials, and treatments like microdermabrasion, simply smooth the top layers of the skin and do not penetrate down to the dermis and achieve any facial firming. Photofacials use various light wavelengths to penetrate into the dermis and deliver nutrients, improve circulation and stimulate collagen and elastin. Photofacials, when done correctly, have been proven to be effective against mild sagging and wrinkles. Find out more about laser By Sia’s photofacials.
For serious wrinkles and sagging, many people use laser or thermage for facial firming. These treatments work by creating an injury to the skin, which prompts the skin to release more collagen and elastin, a process also known as thermal stimulation. While laser and thermage work, they are incredibly painful and cost many thousands of dollars per session.
New facial firming technology available at Laser By Sia
But now, Laser By Sia has secured the latest revolutionary facial firming technology from Europe. Clinically proven, this is the first time this kind of technology has been available outside a doctor’s office. By using magnetic pulsing and radio frequency, this treatment penetrates right to the dermis to increase not only collagen and elastin synthesis, but also the propagation of the skin’s firming cells, fibroblasts. And it does all this at less than half the cost of thermage and without pain or recovery time.
