At External Affairs Medical Spas, a reliable method of “significantly” improving the overall thickness of skin has been our goal for over 20 years.
Skin thickness has been one of the most important factors in beauty and age-management because skin thickness communicates youth. Skin thickness is rooted in our body’s ability to create collagen and elastin faster than our body depletes it. Together, collagen and elastin are what gives our skin elasticity, thickness and structure. Thick skin softens every contour and facial feature.
On the other hand, thin skin reveals more than what we want to see. As collagen and elastin degenerates, skin becomes crepe and begins to reveal the face’s skeletal and muscular structures. This results in an angular appearance with sunken regions of lost volume, and saggy skin that hangs on the lower third of the face.
For aging skin, neuromodulators can be used to limit new fine lines and wrinkles, and fillers can be used to replace depleted volume under the skin. Still, the problem has remained regarding the skin. This is where Poly-L-Lactic acid comes in.
Lactic acid is the chemical that your body makes in response to a hard work-out. It makes your muscles sore and stimulates collagen growth. This means that a Poly-L-Lactic acid treatment results in your own body’s production of collagen and thickening of the skin; resulting in, filling in fine and deep lines and softening facial contours.
Fillers, CO2 laser resurfacing, and topical serums and creams can all aid in thickening and maintaining skin and can optimize your injection treatment. Poly-L-Lactic acid treatments, are designed exclusively for this purpose and can have much more dramatic results.
Your skin deserves a consultation with one of our Registered Nurses. Our 3D technology can both diagnose skin concerns and show you simulated results from your treatment.
