Father time brings many good things like memories to cherish and experiences to last a lifetime. However, with time also come inevitable signs of aging, including saggy skin. Fortunately, you have the power to turn back the clock and get back the fabulous skin you once had.
Our team at Baheri Wellness Center in Beverly Hills, California, led by board-certified Dr. Mehran Baheri, specializes in cosmetic treatments like InMode PLUS to tighten your skin issues.
The science behind your skin
Your skin is the largest organ on your body. It’s made up of a few different parts including water, proteins, fats, and several other minerals and chemicals. When your skin begins to sag, it means that your skin has lost some of these parts that maintain its youthful look. The main culprit of saggy skin is a lack of the proteins elastin and collagen.
When you hear “elastin,” think “elastic.” Elastin is found in the dermis, or middle layer, of your skin and gives your skin the effect of “bouncing back,” like an elastic band. Collagen is very similar and is responsible for maintaining your skin’s structure. Saggy, crepey, or loose skin can all be blamed on not enough elastin and collagen.
That’s where PLUS treatments come in.
The science behind PLUS
What makes PLUS treatments so effective is that they get to the root of your skin issues. PLUS uses concentrated radiofrequency energy to stimulate collagen and elastin in your skin by gradually warming the deepest layers of your skin. This tightens and tones while also being gentle on your skin.
PLUS is effective for tightening many areas of your body including your abdomen, upper arms, thighs, back, knees, and neck. It’s also not just for combatting saggy skin due to aging. Have you just had a baby and are still carrying around loose skin? Maybe you’ve recently lost some weight but have yet to lose the saggy skin. PLUS is for you. No matter what’s causing your skin to lose its collagen and elastin, PLUS can return your skin to its former glory.
If you thought PLUS couldn’t get any better, consider this: PLUS is noninvasive and requires no downtime. You can get treated over your lunch break and be back to your normal routine immediately following your session. PLUS is also painless. Most patients have reported that it feels like a gentle hot-stone massage. You’ll typically need a few treatments 6-8 weeks apart to get ideal results.
What else can I do for my skin?
Investing in PLUS is the first step to restoring your skin’s natural beauty. But what can you do between treatments to ensure you have results that last a lifetime? Here are a few things we recommend:
Protect against sun damage
The sun is wonderful for lots of things, but not healthy skin. Too much exposure to the sun puts you at risk for developing wrinkles and fine lines. We suggest you use sunscreen daily and protect your skin by wearing long sleeves and hats.
Smoking ruins skin. It heightens your risk of becoming wrinkled and can even contribute to destroying your collagen and elastin. Consider kicking the habit to keep your skin healthy in the long run.
Be gentle on your skin
Keep your skin in the best shape possible by avoiding harsh soaps and long, hot showers. It’s also important to keep your skin moisturized.
Plenty of vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins are the key to keeping your skin healthy and supple. Water is one of the main components of great skin. Stay hydrated to give your skin the best support.
