Skin naturally starts to lose its elasticity as you age, and your production of collagen declines. Genetics, the environment, sun exposure, and your lifestyle may hasten the speed at which you notice your skin’s decline.
The skin on your body is subject to the pull of gravity and the effects of aging, too. If you lose weight, skin that has stretched to surround your larger frame may sag when you reach a smaller size.
The Wellpath offers some of the most advanced technologies to help tighten your skin:
Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that creates micro-wounds in your skin, encouraging greater production of collagen and elastin. When combined with PRP (platelet-rich plasma), you experience a reduction in wrinkles and lines as well as tighter, tauter skin. The Wellpath derives PRP from your blood, and it contains a high concentration of platelets, which are cells that contain unique healing and repair properties.
The Plasma Pen treats skin problems by stimulating cells deep within your skin, called fibroblasts, to produce more collagen and elastin fibers. These fibers strengthen and tighten lax skin.
truSculpt 3D uses radiofrequency energy to remove fat and simultaneously tighten your skin and smooth cellulite. The treatment works well on the neck, arms, legs, and abdomen.
The energy emitted by truSculpt 3D targets the fatty layer of skin just below the surface to destroy excess fat cells. The treatment encourages collagen fibers to straighten out, thus tightening the skin. Your body also produces new collagen in response.
Thermi 250 is one of the newest, most powerful technologies that tightens the skin without notable discomfort or downtime. The technology heats your skin to a temperature that stimulates the development of new collagen. Applicable to just about anywhere on the body where you have lax skin, Thermi 250 can also reduce the look of cellulite.
Dr. Heskett uses diluted Radiesse® filler to tighten crepey skin.
UltraSlim uses state-of-the-art red light therapy to remove unwanted fat cells from targeted treatment areas. The light energy causes cells to release fatty acids and triglycerides, resulting in the immediate reduction of fat and skin tightening.
Dr. Heskett uses her experience and vast knowledge of these advanced technologies to recommend the right treatments for you. Your individual “Path” will depend on your type of physiology, the reasons for your loose skin, your other aesthetic goals, available downtime, and budget. There is a solution for everyone at the Wellpath.
