When you think about turning back the signs of aging, you probably don’t imagine your skin cells behaving like younger skin cells. (What does that look like anyway? Do young skin cells dance more?)
Seriously though, that’s exactly what happens when you undergo certain skin treatments — your skin’s healing response is triggered, stimulating renewal at a cellular level, which ultimately prompts your skin cells to literally start acting younger. On the outside, you can’t see any of this, of course! All you notice is smoother, more radiant skin in the weeks and months after your treatments. But make no mistake: Reversing the aging process is a molecular undertaking.
So, are you ready to make your skin cells “dance” more? Without further ado, here’s a look at several youth-inspiring treatments at Atagi Plastic Surgery and Skin Aesthetics:
Forever Young BBL®
This non-invasive photofacial treatment is famous for improving hyperpigmentation, small veins and redness, but it can also help your skin look years younger with repeated, long-term use! These amazing age-defying benefits were discovered through clinical research conducted by Dr. Patrick J. Bitters at Stanford University. Dr. Bitters discovered that patients who underwent BBL treatments for several years were determined by objective viewers to have skin that looked at least 10 years younger than its actual age. Under a microscope, Dr. Bitters discovered that these long-term BBL users had skin cells that were acting like younger skin cells. Specifically, their skin cells were showing thicker bundles of more tightly packed collagen, more elastin and more hydration.
Halo™ fractional laser skin resurfacing
Halo is a fractionated laser skin treatment that stimulates cellular renewal with two types of laser energy (ablative and non-ablative), revealing a wide range of improvements to skin texture and tone. Halo is a wonderful overall complexion enhancer that can reverse sun damage, shrink pore size, brighten dullness, smooth lines and much more.
With its tried-and-true technology, microneedling utilizes the skin’s natural healing ability, triggering an increase in collagen production for a smoother, brighter complexion. By creating thousands of tiny micro-injuries in the surface of the skin, minimally invasive microneedling can help improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, dull skin and stretch marks on the face and neck with little to no downtime. With a recommended series of three microneedling treatments, you can harness the power of youthful radiance.
Morpheus8 RF microneedling
For tightening skin and smoothing away acne scars, stretch marks and other textural irregularities, Morpheus8 is the gold standard in the industry. This treatment pairs microneedles with intense radiofrequency energy to stimulate your skin’s healing response and trigger new collagen and elastin growth. A series of treatments is the ideal way to achieve your goals.
Ultherapy is FDA-cleared to help lift and tighten skin on the brow, face, neck and chest. This non-invasive treatment uses potent ultrasound energy to target your skin and muscle deep down and stimulate a natural healing response and tightening effect from within.
As its name implies, the MicroLaserPeel is similar to a chemical peel because it removes the outermost layer of skin cells to trigger skin renewal with new collagen and elastin. However, instead of using chemicals, MicroLaserPeel uses a laser to treat the skin. This versatile laser can be adjusted in intensity depending on your complexion needs, whether you need intense skin renewal or just a touch up.
ProFractional™ laser skin resurfacing
ProFractional offers dramatic overall improvements to the appearance of your skin. Using laser energy, this skin resurfacing treatment creates tiny thermal micro-columns in the skin to renew from deep within and trigger new collagen growth. Commonly used on the face, neck and décolletage, ProFractional can diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, enlarged pores and skin texture irregularities, revealing healthier, more youthful skin.
