ACCENT SKIN TIGHTENING
Theory: Why Does Our Skin Age?
Collagen is a building block or foundation of the skin, which supports its structure. Over time collagen becomes depleted or damaged by the sun or other environmental factors. The result is visible signs of aging such as the appearance of thinner skin or loose skin. Deep radiofrequency, (Thermage, Pelleve, and Accent) or deep infrared heat (SkinTyte) energy heats the deep levels of the facial skin and stimulates production of collagen in response to the heat energy insult. It can take up to 6 months to see a response from this procedure, which is often done in combination with fillers, fat transfer and/or BOTOX® in New Jersey or Philadelphia.
