When external or internal factors such as aging, weight loss or sun exposure affect the key elements of the skin, you begin to experience saggy skin.
To further explain, the essential elements for firm skin are the two proteins called collagen and elastin and hyaluronic acid molecule.
Collagen and elastin fibres are like a bunch of well-built columns placed next to each other to hold up the top layer of skin. When you are young, these columns are strong and straight; therefore, your skin looks firm and smooth.
Your veins carry blood throughout your body, all the way to your heart. As your veins carry the blood, it needs to travel in an upward direction all the way through the vein to get back to the heart. This direction goes against gravity. Gravity tries to pull the blood down when there is no push from behind; it may appear impossible for the blood flow to find its way back to the heart!
Hyaluronic acid is a substance that has a unique capacity to retain and absorb water over 1000 times its weight to increase moisture, elasticity, and flexibility throughout your body. The greatest concentration of hyaluronic acid is found in the skin, eyes, and joints.
Your body produces all these three key substances regularly. Although once you turn 30, each year, not only does the process slow down but also you start to lose 1 percent of collagen, fibres, and hyaluronic acid’s storage in your body.
Of course, aging is unavoidable, and skin sagging is a natural part. “As we age, skin visibly changes in several ways,” says Dr. Vij, “and a lot of it has to do things beyond your control.”
But the good news is that we live in a time and century when technology has changed the world and improved our lives. With the help of advancements in the laser machine, you can reverse your biological clock.
A common pathway to tightening the skin is to heat the tissue to stimulate collagen remodelling and contraction.
PIANO mode is a bulk heating approach based on super-long pulse duration. It does not create high peak temperature in the epidermis, and it is safe to reach deeper skin layers to stimulate collagen and elastin production and gradually improve texture, tone, and laxity of skin to a loss of collagen, elastin fibres.
