Collagen And Elastin: How Skin Ages

As we age, our skin begins to lose collagen and elastin, two extremely important components of connective tissue. As a result, the skin begins to sag, especially along the jawline, neck and around the eyes. Wrinkles, lines, creases, and jowls begin to appear.

Fortunately, at Avalon Laser, we offer multiple solutions to help rejuvenate the face and reduce signs of aging. Depending on which areas of your face need the most work—and whether you want to address wrinkles, lines, or sagging—Dr. Reza Tirgari will work with you to find the right treatment to help you look and feel your best.

Introduction to the Clear + Brilliant Laser for Facial Rejuvenation

Avalon Laser: Facial Rejuvenation At Its Best.

Thermage is the latest, non-invasive skin-heating-and-cooling therapy that delivers immediate results. Thermage is used to tighten the skin, eliminate fine lines and wrinkles, and is effective on the face and around the eyes. The most prominent effect of Thermage is its ability to stimulate both existing collagen in the skin and jumpstart the production of new collagen.

How Does Thermage Work To Rejuvenate Facial Skin?

Thermage uses advanced radio-frequency (RF) heating and cooling technology to impact the collagen in the skin. In our 20s, our collagen production slows, and the skin begins to show the early signs of aging. Thermage remodels existing collagen in the skin by tightening the collagen spirals, for immediately visible results in tighter, firmer, skin. Over the next three to six months, the treatment will continue to stimulate the production of new collagen which leads to tighter, smoother skin that is lifted and refreshed. Fine lines and wrinkles are also reduced.

What Does A Thermage Treatment Feel Like?

A Thermage session is topical and painless. It's performed on the surface of the skin by delivering RF heating energy to the deep layers of the skin targeting collagen cells, while simultaneously cooling the surface of the skin to prevent any damage to the sensitive top layers.

The treatment time lasts anywhere between 20 minutes to an hour, or up to two hours, depending on the area to be treated, with no downtime. Avalon Laser can help you achieve great results with a Thermage treatment customized just for you and your unique skin concerns. Please note that results can be achieved with just one session, however, patients with moderate to severe aging signs may be advised to undergo several treatments to achieve optimal results.

Thermage For Facial Rejuvenation

Thermage can be used to improve the appearance of the entire face, resulting in tighter, smoother skin with an even texture. In many cases, it will also lift sagging areas of the face and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. This treatment is appropriate for all aging patients in their 30s, 40s, 50s and beyond. The beauty of this treatment is that results can be seen after just one treatment session and will continue to improve over time.

Thermage For Facial Rejuvenation May Accomplish The Following:

  • Produce immediate visible results
  • Tighten facial skin
  • Lift sagging skin in specific areas of the face
  • Reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles
  • Improve texture and glow of the skin
  • Remodel existing collagen in deep layers of the skin
  • Stimulate new collagen production

Thermage For Eye Rejuvenation

Thermage is an excellent treatment for the aging eyes. The severity of the wrinkling and laxity of the skin around the eyes will determine how many Thermage treatment sessions will be needed. These improvements produced by Thermage are possible without the need for surgery, incisions, or any recovery time.

Does Thermage Work For Eye Rejuvenation?

Yes. Thermage will help restore the collagen in the sensitive skin around the eyes. You can also expect to continue seeing visible results months after treatment. Our San Diego Thermage patients are amazed at the results this treatment delivers for the aging eyes for both men and women.

SmartXide DOT Laser For Skin Tightening

This state-of-the-art technology allows us to perform advanced skin tightening for facial rejuvenation. The SmartXide DOT laser uses unique dual technology for maximum precision and versatility. It simultaneously delivers energy (depth) and dwell time (thermal damage), which allows us to tailor treatment to each individual patient and produce your desired results.

Gentle Laser Treatment For Facial Rejuvenation

Because this device allows us to deliver both gentle and deep treatments, we can tighten and treat the delicate areas of the face and body such as the eyelids and neck. At the same time, the power of this device allows us to treat darker skin types, even patients with high risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, who were previously not considered candidates for skin tightening procedures.

Minimally Invasive, No Downtime: SmartXide DOT

Most importantly, this technology delivers quick treatments, minimal invasiveness and minimal to no downtime, all while producing safe and excellent aesthetic results. This laser is great for addressing sagging skin and signs of aging in areas including:

  • Face
  • Eyes
  • Neck

Laser Wrinkle Reduction

Wrinkles and lines on the face can be the result of one or a combination of factors such as sun damage, smoking, hormonal changes, or facial expressive activity in addition to the natural aging process. Poor diet or nutritional habits and uneven sleep patterns also contribute to wrinkle formation. Also, collagen can decrease at a rate of one percent per year after age 40 in normal individuals and sun exposure accelerates this aging process. With the loss of collagen and damage to the collagen fibers, they become less able to support the upper layers of the skin.

At Avalon Laser, Dr. Tirgari and his highly-trained staff work to help you reach your cosmetic goals by using the latest in advanced technology and techniques. Beginning with your initial consultation and continuing through your post-procedure care, you can trust that your treatment will be personalized to your specific needs and all your questions and concerns will be addressed with attention and care.

Firmer, More Youthful Facial Skin With Custom Facial Rejuvenation Treatments.

However, by using laser wrinkle reduction, light can be used to stimulate the body’s own collagen layer to replenish itself. As your body then begins to replenish the lost collagen, fine lines and wrinkles gradually begin to fade as they’re filled in by the new collagen. For much deeper wrinkles and folds that a laser alone cannot fix, injectables are used to relax the muscle and/or fill in the folds.
