The natural ageing process, along with sun damage, causes collagen fibres to stretch and degrade like worn rubber bands, resulting in less elastic, weaker skin that eventually droops and sags. ND: YAG Skin Tightening addresses this problem by delivering light energy which is then converted to thermal energy, deep into the dermis. This deep layer of skin where collagen resides is then impacted in 2 ways;
- The existing collagen fibres in the treated area start to contract and plump up, which is what gives the immediate tightening effect,
- The skin cells that produce new collages are stimulated to switch on the production of new collagen, which will then mature over the next 90 days, causing the results to improve over the next few months. The result is a smoother, tighter, more toned look that occurs naturally.
