Three non-invasive technologies to try at SOTHERGA for a toned and firm face

Lots of women think that, in order to see a firmer, more toned face, with defined contours, it’s all about scalpels or injections. Yet there are excellent options, completely noninvasive, that allow to get great and youthful results on the face. Wrinkles are in fact folds that appear on skin surface, particularly in places where the skin is continuously stressed by the action of underlying muscles. Factors could be internal, when they are related to natural aging, and external, caused by lifestyle habits and UV rays exposure. There are a variety of wrinkle types, but we can divide them into four macro categories. Gravitational wrinkles are caused by skin gravity, such as dark circles and lip contour, and double chin. Exposure wrinkles usually appear to emphasize facial expressions we take on most often, such as on the forehead or around the lips. Actinic wrinkles are caused by continuous exposure to UV rays, while “sleep” wrinkles are caused by the pressure of the face on the pillow during night rest. For women who sing the well aging praises and who love themselves even more as they age, here are three treatments to try at SOTHERGA that don’t change features but simply give skin an extra boost of energy, radiance and firmness.
Radiofrequency, for a tightening effect
Beloved by stars, it is a painless treatment that harnesses radiofrequency energy to create a heat gradient that can contract and destroy old collagen and stimulate the production of new collagen. Endymed is a technologically advanced high-energy, phase-controlled radiofrequency device that can eliminate affected skin laxity. Alma Laser is a machine that uses fractional radiofrequency energy to create micro-channels on the skin surface deep enough to stimulate collagen production, through a resurfacing treatment. This technology stimulates collagen production, and the treatment ends with active substances into the skin, such as collagen, hyaluronic acid, and vitamin C. Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive modular fractional radiofrequency with micro-needles for more enhanced firming of facial and body skin.
Fraxel laser, anti-photoaging
Performs non-ablative fractional resurfacing. A safe and minimally invasive method that repairs and erases signs of aging and typical photodamage from the skin. It can be performed on face, neck, and décolleté. It produces, without breaking, thousands of tiny holes (called micro-columns) through thermal activity that eliminates old pigmented cells and penetrates deep into the dermis by intensively targeting the affected areas, leaving the tissue intact.
Hydro-Dermabrasion, for cell turnover
Hydrafacial is a device that removes dead cells, extracts impurities, and simultaneously infuses cleansing and moisturizing serums into the skin. A three-step program designed to cleanse, extract and exfoliate in a single treatment, resulting in regenerated and hydrated skin. In 30 minutes impurities disappear and, thanks to the infusion of cleansing and moisturizing serums, a mix customized by experienced cosmetic doctors according to person’s needs, has a soothing and refreshing action, improving the beauty of the skin.
