Put Your Best Face Forward This Year With Skin Tightening

Your skin is the largest organ your body has, and as you age it goes through a lot of changes. There are many reasons for your skin to wrinkle and sag, such as lifestyle choices, diet, or overexposure to the sun, which can be especially hard on your face. 

If you’re looking for a safe and painless way to help your skin look younger, skin tightening is a way to slow down the march of time on your face.

Residents of the Memphis, Tennessee area who are searching for ways to look younger are in luck. Kenneth Thompson, MD, and the team at A Beautiful You Medical Spa offer quality care and use cutting-edge technology to help you look your best.

What happens to your skin over time?

Since your skin is constantly exposed to the environment, it’s affected by many things that lead to the changes you see over time. As you age, your skin becomes rougher, can develop lesions like benign tumors, and overall becomes thinner and more fragile. 

Sun exposure (photoaging), pollution, and other environmental factors directly contribute to wrinkles and sagging, but your body loses two important proteins as you get older: elastin and collagen

These important proteins help make up the supporting structure of your skin. Collagen is the most plentiful protein in your body and helps with things like blood clotting and keeping your skin firm. Elastin gives skin and other tissues and organs in your body resilience and elasticity. 

Your body produces these proteins less and less as you get older. This causes your skin to become thinner and weaker, resulting in wrinkles and sagging. A noninvasive, safe way to effectively treat wrinkles and sagging is Venus Legacy™ treatments.

How do Venus Legacy treatments help?

Venus Legacy treatments are designed to smooth out cellulite, reduce wrinkles, and improve sagging skin. This method uses Multi-Polar Radio Frequency (RF) and Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields (REMF) to safely produce heat under your skin’s surface. 

This way, it can target areas of your skin to stimulate the production of proteins like collagen and elastin which help to firm and tighten your skin. Venus Legacy also uses an adjustable pulsed suction technology called VariPulse™ to pull skin up, which allows the treatment to penetrate deeper and offer more effective help to your skin.

How does the process work?

The process starts with you lying in a comfortable, reclined position. The treatment applicator is used in the target areas. The device will slowly warm up to match the temperature necessary to treat your skin. The VariPulse feature on the device will then use suction to gently pull the skin. The temperature and suction power can both be adjusted for your comfort, making this a painless experience that will give you younger-looking skin.

Each session lasts for about 15-30 minutes, and the overall experience will feel very relaxing. Multiple treatments will be necessary, and maintenance will need to be done every 3-4 months. There’s no downtime following your treatments.

So, if you’re ready to look younger and want to know if the Venus Legacy treatment is for you, schedule a consultation with Dr. Thompson by calling our office at 901-683-8220 or by booking an appointment online today.
