It’s no secret that wrinkles and fine lines are one of the most common signs of aging, and often a concern when discussing anti-aging with many clients. One of the main reasons for this, is due to the fact that collagen and elastin production decreases as we age. In fact, it starts at the age of 25. It is these two compounds that allow our skin to have definition and firmness. Without either, the skin becomes supple, soft and fines lines and wrinkles appear.
However, we have found a solution. At Martindale Medispa, we use GentleMax Pro, from Syneron Candela for all our skin tightening needs. This technology has proven effective in firming up the skin and also inducting new collagen production.
How Does It Work
The GentleMax Pro, works by using the 1064 nm Nd: YAG laser (it is a dual-wavelength system). This penetrates the layers of the skin and we achieve bulk dermal heating, as it targets the cells that are no longer producing collagen. This heat then stimulates fibroblast cells and increases collagen production. So the overall effect seen is skin becoming tightened and smoother, fewer wrinkles and younger-looking skin.
