We’re all a bit more clued up these days on the best ways to preserve our skin so it’s smooth and wrinkle-free well into our 50’s and beyond: a nutritious diet, good skincare, plenty of water and (most importantly) staying out of the sun. Did you know though…there are treatments for NATURAL collagen production?
People have become so much more aware of the effects of too much UV light, leaving the more mature bearers of sun damaged & sagging skin desperately wondering why nobody warned us! :/
But it’s never too late – there’s lots we can do!
Amongst other things (more of which below) are advanced treatments for natural collagen production, which you might want to consider before you go for more invasive options.
The Skin’s Scaffolding!
Preserving the outermost layer of the skin is one thing. What about the supporting structures beneath the surface of the skin?
Collagen and elastin are the building blocks of firm, youthful skin. The natural decline of collagen and elastin is a factor over which, without intervention, we have little control, as we lose 1% of collagen a year from our mid to late 20’s! Which is nothing when you consider that we can lose 30% of our collagen throughout the first 5 years of menopause. The decline is then only about 2% a year, for the next 20 years.
The Good News! Non Invasive Treatments for Natural Collagen Production also kickstart Elastin:
RF Microneedling to Target Lines, Wrinkles and Texture, as well as Lifting & Tightening
Combining radiofrequency energy with microneedling for maximum collagen and elastin induction, the Focus Dual produces undeniable skin tightening, lifting, firming, smoothing results.
The effects are twice as effective in comparison with either treatment being undertaken separately. It addresses many skin concerns ranging from acne and enlarged pores to wrinkles, fine lines and dull, uneven skin texture.
Allow us to expain this further.
Traditional Microneedling (without radiofrequency energy) creates ‘micro-traumas’ in the skin, stimulating the body’s natural healing response. In turn the body creates some new, collagen-rich tissue. The Focus Dual’s ultra-fine needles not only produce this response but what’s more…
…The Focus Dual has the added benefit of radiofrequency energy, enabling 2X the wound-healing reaction in comparison to microneedling alone.
Radiofrequency heats the length of the ultra-fine microneedles, directing heat to various, targeted layers beneath the skin. The heat produced in the deeper layers of tissue causes existing collagen structures to tighten, and induces the production of new collagen and elastin.
Existing collagen cells are strengthened too. The regeneration of collagen and elastin over the following 12 weeks enhances the skin’s elasticity, tightness & texture as well as significantly reducing lines and wrinkles.
RF Microneedling is also highly effective for treating ‘turkey neck’, decolletage and most areas of the body.
The benefits of Radiofrequency Microneedling in a nutshell? Stronger, tighter and firmer skin with fewer wrinkles, as well as significant improvements in acne scarring. It’s one of the very best advanced treatments for natural collagen production.
HIFU for Lifted, Tighter Skin
HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) is another advanced treatment available through Focus Dual that lifts, firms and tightens. Its leading feature is its power to give you notably lifted, firmer and tightened skin.
This is particularly beneficial for the jowl area or an excessively heavy lower face. As if that weren’t enough to get excited about, excess fat in this area can be reduced by heating the fat cells at the deepest layer beneath the skin.
And what’s more, a bi-product of the increase in collagen is that the surface of the skin is enhanced.
As with RF Microneedling, HIFU can also target body areas such as ‘bingo wings’, inner thighs, back fat and smaller pockets of excess belly fat.
A truly revolutionary treatment for natural collagen production, requiring no down time!
Who Would Benefit From Radiofrequency Microneedling and HIFU?
The treatment is ideal for anybody (male or female) with any of the following concerns:
- Fine lines
- Loss of firmness in the skin
- Sagging, loose skin
- Premature ageing
- Mature skin
- Acne scarring
- Enlarged pores
- Uneven skin texture
- Preventative for ageing
- Maintenance for youthful skin
Immediately after HIFU there is an initial, temporary tightness caused by the minor controlled trauma; skin may be slightly red but is likely to have a healthy glow and will appear smoother.
Real results, meaning production of new collagen & elastin (firmness, lifting, tightening), will continue to develop 3-6 months after the treatment.
Immediately after RF Microneedling, skin is likely to be red, similar to post high impact exercise. This resolves after a few hours to a day.
Around 4 – 6 weeks after RF Microneedling you’ll start to see improvements in skin texture & reduction in lines and wrinkles. The tightening and lifting effect of RF Microneedling will be visible after around 12 weeks.
For best results, you’ll need between 2-3 initial HIFU treatments, 8-12 weeks apart.
For RF Microneedling you’ll need 3-6 initial RF Microneedling treatments, 4-6 weeks apart, depending on individual concerns.
A maintenance treatment would then be required every 12-18 months for HIFU and every 3-6 months for RF Microneedling.
However, you will receive an in-depth consultation and a bespoke treatment plan with the one aim of getting the very best results for you.
