Causes of skin loosening

Collagen is the main protein in the body that keeps skin tight. After the age of 30 years, its production decreases progressively, as a result of which the skin becomes less elastic and wrinkles appear. Time leaves its traces even from the age of 25 years, particularly in the area of the neck, where the skin is sensitive and thin. By the age of 40 years, the signs of aging and loosening become visible in the face contour as well. Along with the decrease of collagen levels, the amount of fats in deeper skin layers which serve as support is also impaired.

Lowered production of hyaluronic acid and decreased hydration also contribute to the thinning and dryness of the skin. Additional factors that contribute to the loosening of skin and may cause earlier formation of wrinkles are lifestyle, frequent exposure to sunlight,excessive loss or gain of weight, high-fat diets, smoking and heredity.

Treatments with laser (based on radio frequency or with the administration of photoenergy)

At Derma-Act, non-invasive procedures for tightening of skin, neck and neckline are used for activating the production of collagen and elastin, thus improving the texture, tone and density of the skin.

Treatments with laser are applicable to all types of skin, the duration of administration is comparatively short and results are long-term. Tightening procedures with laser and other energy-based devices have no side effects and no risk of hyperpigmentation. For this reason, they can be administered at any time of year, even in the summer months when sunlight is the strongest. The results after treatment include:

Full renovation of the face

Tight and youthful skin

Improvement of the contour

Recovery of lost volume

Smoothing of wrinkles and fine lines

Treatment of loose skin with injection procedures

Combined therapy with hyaluronic filler and skin booster

A biocompatible and highly concentrated hyaluronic acid in combination with skin boosters (Restylane Vital, Vital Light, Juvederm Volite) are injected in the dermis of skin, where they are completely absorbed. Thanks to their slow release, skin boosters stimulate the natural release of collagen and elastin effectively shaping not only the designated point of injecting but also all skin tissues in the area.

To achieve a more durable effect, intake of larger amounts of water and avoidance of heat, smoking and drastic dietetic regimens to lose weight, are recommended.

The Sculptra non-hyaluronic filler

The Sculptra non-hyaluronic filler contains poly-L-lactic acid, which tightens and smooths the skin, and the face contour acquires a natural and youthful look. The production of type I and III collagen in fibroblasts and the type IV and VIII in keratinocytes increases, and also the production of elastin and endogenous hyaluronic acid, grows bigger. The skin quality improves dramatically and it acquires a youthful look.

Το Sculptra δρα σταδιακά, έτσι τέσσερις έως έξι εβδομάδες μετά από κάθε συνεδρία, πραγματοποιείται αξιολόγηση, προκειμένου να προσδιοριστεί εάν υπάρχει ανάγκη για περαιτέρω εφαρμογές. Ορισμένες περιοχές, όπως ο λαιμός ή τα χέρια, μπορεί να χρειάζονται περισσότερες συνεδρίες για μέγιστη αποτελεσματικότητα.

High effectiveness and durability

Τα πρώτα αποτελέσματα της θεραπείας είναι ορατά αμέσως μετά την πρώτη εφαρμογή, ενώ το τελικό αποτέλεσμα έρχεται έναν μήνα μετά τη δεύτερη εφαρμογή και διαρκεί περίπου ενάμιση χρόνο, ανάλογα με την ποιότητα του δέρματος. Κατά το διάστημα της θεραπείας, συνιστάται η λήψη περισσότερου νερού και γενικότερα υγρών. Η αποθεραπεία είναι άμεση και ο ασθενής επιστρέφει κανονικά στις καθημερινές του δραστηριότητες. Συνοπτικά, η θεραπεία:

  • Accelerates cell renovation;
  • Improves the face contour;
  • Tightens and elevates the jaw for a more youthful profile;
  • Hydrates the skin intensively;
  • Adds elasticity, radiance and softness of skin;
  • Smooths the nasolabial folds and marionette lines which are the main signs of aging on the face skin;
  • Tightens and softens the skin of the neck and décolletage;
  • Recovers lost volume in the arms through tightening and smoothing of skin.

Meso-threads

Meso-threads are a method of aesthetic dermatology that successfully replaces plastic interventions.

The treated areas are visibly tightened and have improved elasticity and turgor. Lifting is achieved with a maximally natural result and restructuring of the face. Meso-threads are introduced subcutaneously with the aim to improve skin definition and quality and achieve a lifting effect, which is due to the stimulation of production of collagen by the skin itself.

PicoSure® can be used to improve skin texture, fine lines and wrinkles, uneven complexion and acne scars.

Lifting με Cynosure Potenza

Το Potenza είναι μια καινοτόμα συσκευή, εξοπλισμένη με μικροβελόνες που δρα υποδορίως και λειτουργεί με ραδιοσυχνότητες, οι οποίες, όπως έχει αποδειχθεί, μειώνουν τις ρυτίδες και αποκαθιστούν το κολλαγόνο. Είναι μια ελάχιστα επεμβατική θεραπεία, που μπορεί να εφαρμοσθεί σε όλες τις περιοχές, αλλά χρησιμοποιείται συχνότερα για τη χαλάρωση του κατώτερου τμήματος του προσώπου και του λαιμού.
