As we get older, our skin becomes loose and wrinkled. It is typically due to genetics, lifestyle choices, and diminished collagen production. Collagen is a structural protein inside of the skin that gives us a youthful, plump appearance. Over time, collagen production decreases, and we lose volume, which causes fine lines and wrinkles.
For those looking for a non-invasive way to rejuvenate the skin, infrared skin tightening is a life-changing option. Infrared skin tightening is a non-surgical method of stimulating collagen production. At Marin Medical Aesthetics, we use Skintyte, a brand of infrared skin tightening. It treats all skin tones and types.
SkinTyte uses pulses of infrared-light technology to heat deep dermal layers. This technology helps contract existing collagen and accelerates new collagen production. It treats the face, neck, abdomen, arms, and thighs, but it works on any area of sagging skin. The applicator delivers heat, and it has a cooling tip that keeps the skin’s surface from getting too hot, which helps make the treatment a comfortable experience, and there is no need for a topical numbing cream.
Since everyone’s skin is different, everyone’s needs are unique. We will work with you to customize a treatment plan that fits your lifestyle. To learn more and to get started on your journey to clear, rejuvenated skin, give us a call today at (415) 785-4604.
