Non-Invasive Skincare Treatments to Help Tighten, Lighten, and Brighten
Oftentimes people think that to enhance your appearance, you must commit to invasive treatments that require significant downtime. The truth is that there are plenty of non-invasive treatments that can help to reverse the signs of aging, without the intensity or downtime of surgical treatments.
Let’s be honest most of us who undergo non-invasive aesthetic procedures are not interested in radically changing how we look. Rather today’s treatments are about making you look more refreshed and youthful, but not in an overly obvious way. It’s more about lightening, tightening, and brightening the skin, helping you to look like, well, you, only better.
The fact is that it happens to all of us. We look in the mirror and begin to see signs of aging that we didn’t notice before. Little wrinkles around our eyes or lips, age spots, maybe some sagging skin. While there did not use to be a lot of options to help you reverse the hands of time, today there are many ways to soften the effects of aging with non-invasive treatments and high-quality, medical-grade skincare.
Let’s take a look at a few of our favorite non-invasive treatments that help with skin tightening, lightening, and brightening …
As we age, the production of collagen and elastin—two proteins that help our skin stay plump, firm, and smooth—slows down, resulting in areas of lax, sagging skin on our face, neck, and body. If you are bothered by skin laxity, non-invasive skin tightening can help to restore a firmer, smoother, more youthful appearance with little to no downtime.
Known as a non-surgical “mini face-lift,” Ultherapy® is the only FDA-cleared, non-invasive procedure that lifts and tightens the neck, chin, and brow, and improves lines and wrinkles on the chest, chin, and brow. Using focused ultrasound to stimulate collagen deep within the skin, Ultherapy® gives you tighter, lifted skin, without downtime.
The treatment takes anywhere from 30 to 90 minutes, depending on what areas you are having treated. You will see initial results within 2 to 3 months, as the collagen gradually regenerates to lift and tighten the tissue. The good news? Results from a single treatment can last up to two years!
If aging, acne, or too much time in the sun has left your face with blotches, scars, wrinkles, or lines, laser skin treatments can help your skin look younger and healthier. Lasers “improve the overall health as well the tone and texture of the skin at the same time,” notes Timeless Skin Solutions’ Medical Director, Dr. Erin Olah.
With Pearl Laser Skin Resurfacing, luminescent skin is at your fingertips. Diminish brown spots, scars, and fine lines, decrease pore size, refine your skin’s overall texture, and increase collagen production, all in about 30 minutes. This treatment directs short, concentrated pulsating beams of light at irregular skin, precisely targeting the top layer of skin damage while also creating heat and collagen regeneration in the deeper layers of the skin. The new skin cells that form during healing give the skin a tighter, younger-looking surface.
The Pearl is one of the skin treatments that our physicians desire most for their own skin because it can dramatically improve the appearance of your skin. You will begin to see a renewed appearance in as little as a week, with continuous improvement and full results within six months. There is some reddening and peeling throughout the first week, so you’ll want to schedule appropriately around events.
IPL & Genesis
The lasers of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL ) + Genesis work in sync to complement the effectiveness of one another. Paired together, these treatments stimulate the body’s natural collagen production to reduce the appearance of sunspots, fine lines, wrinkles, and redness. IPL treatments, also known as Photofacial and BroadBand Light (BBL), use a specific wavelength of light to gently and precisely treat deep under the skin’s surface. Unlike the Pearl, IPL & Genesis have little to no downtime but require a series of treatments to see optimal results.
If you are looking to lighten and brighten your skin, DiamondGlow™ is just what you need to combat dull skin and get your glow back. Sometimes referred to as medical-grade microdermabrasion, DiamondGlow™ combines exfoliation, extraction, and infusion of condition-specific serums to improve skin health, function, and appearance.
Want to really boost your results? Consider combining DiamondGlow with IPL and a chemical peel for what we call the Trifecta. By combining these three simple but effective treatments, you can expose the glowy, dewy skin that lies underneath. While you can space these treatments out, it’s actually very popular to have all three of these treatments done together to take your skin from drab to glam in just one visit.
