Everyday, we grow older. And as we grow older, there are changes to our body. The most noticeable is during the time of our puberty to young adult to mid life to old age. During the puberty, or rather, the maturing stage, our body aggressively producing growth hormones. These hormones created certain results in our body such as the lumps on chest for the females, the broadening of the shoulder for the males, the overall heights for both and etc.
In short, our body are ’stretched’! After that, things goes well through the adolescent stage till mid life. This is where things start to jump in. Our body starts to shrink, slowly along with the time.
These shrink can be notice easily. It is shown on our skin. The most common symptoms: wrinkles and sagging skin.
Loose sagging skin on our body areas, such as the face, stomach, arms and other areas is very distressing and uncomfortable to thought for many of us. Integument or loose skin makes us look old and out of shape. Work out probably could not help at all. In the past, to get rid of these problem, people usually resort to the operation table and knife to either tighten the skin or getting rid of excessive skin.
Most of the time, people have a problem when it comes to knife even though anesthetic is available and proven to be very helpful. So, they just dump the idea of getting rid of the skin and live with the discomfort of being looking old.
Today, often using a combination of different methods, substantial skin tightening can be achieved without surgery. One thing to bear in mind is that, there are many skin tightening advertisements out there that can be misleading. So, you need to be really informed and understand the technology before going for any of those in order to achieve the result you desire.
Tight, firm skin requires good elasticity. Elasticity is the ability of the skin to snap back or tighten after it has been pulled away from the body. It relies on healthy collagen and elasting fiers that lie very deep, near the bottom of the dermis, the deep layer of our skin below the surface. Just think of small rubber bands that hold the integument tight.
Aging, sun damage from ultraviolet light, smoking, stress, alcohol intake and unhealthy diet destroy collagen and elastin in the dermis. This caused the integument to loosen and sag.
Strething due to pregnancy or rapid weight loss after dieting also contributes to the damage of collagen and elastin fibers.
The treatment involving laser and non-surgical skin tightening methods works well. This is done by stimulating the growth of new collagen and elasting in the dermis to replace the old and damaged ones. The procedure is by applying heat to the deep layers from the underneath. The effect of this skin tightening and new collagen and elasting formation is that the skin becomes firmer and the loose tissue is tighten.
