This completely natural and irreversible phenomenon is explained by the gradual loss of the nutritional elements and proteins necessary for the conservation of youth, hydration, and elasticity of the skin. It begins from the fifties and accelerates with menopause.
There are two factors essential to the good behavior and youthfulness of the skin:
Collagen: It is a protein naturally present in the body which nourishes the tissues responsible for the good maintenance of the skin. It is in the form of elastin fibers, which will ensure the good elasticity of the skin.
Hyaluronic Acid: It is a protein that nourishes the elastin fibers and thus helps to maintain the suppleness and youthfulness of the skin.
As we age, the body slows down its production of collagen and hyaluronic acid, and the elastin fibers are not nourished and strong enough to maintain the tone of the skin, hence the appearance of sagging skin.
Sagging skin is one of the most recurring problems in our male and female patients. To meet their needs, we offer a revolutionary treatment called thermage.
Thermage is a treatment that takes place all at once. It uses the toning and firming powers of radiofrequency to tighten sagging areas.
By sending short waves to the surface of the skin through a handpiece, the thermage will deeply heat the dermis and thus stimulate the production of collagen, the main element of youthful skin. In addition, the radiofrequency will stimulate the contraction of elastin fibers, an essential factor in the firmness of the skin.
Cellulite affects almost all women, whether they are heavy or not. A slim woman without a weight problem may very well have cellulite. The orange peel gives the silhouette an unsightly and distorted and complex appearance.
There Are Several Degrees Of Cellulite:
Adipose Cellulite: Due to poor diet (too fatty, too salty and too sweet). This cellulite is only visible when pinching the affected area.
Fibrous Cellulite: Due to the hardening of the collagen. This type of cellulite is painful to the touch and is only visible when standing.
