As we age, skin loses its elasticity due to decreased collagen and elastin production. Collagen is the most abundant protein in our body that gives tissues strength and structure. Elastin is responsible for the skin’s resilience. It forms a rubber-like matrix, allowing the skin to resume shape after stretching or contracting. Changes below the skin further contribute to its laxity. Loss of fatty tissue, bone and sagging of the muscles decrease the underlying support. Without solid supporting structures, skin succumbs to gravity. Sun exposure, drastic weight loss, repetitive facial expressions, sleep position, certain diets, and hormonal imbalances also play a role in the degree of loose skin.
At Cataleya Aesthetics in San Jose, California, we have several non-invasive treatments to help our clients tighten their skin while optimizing its health and overall appearance.
- Morpheus8 is an RF (radiofrequency) microneedling device that combines the highest level of collagen induction therapy and minimal downtime. Controlled microscopic injury to the skin coupled with radiofrequency pushes the skin to work harder and rebuild stronger. It remodels all layers of the skin and can even reach adipose (fat) tissue below it. As a result, Morpheus 8 can improve skin elasticity and textural issues such as acne scars and enlarged pores.
- CosmoPen Medical Grade Microneedling offers a lighter, virtually painless treatment that goes up to 2.5 mm deep into the skin and promotes a natural healing response that stimulates collagen and elastin production. It provides a significant boost to skin elasticity and is a perfect choice for patients who are at higher risk of heat-induced hyperpigmentation. In addition, CosmoPen is beneficial for reducing pore sizes, mild acne scarring, and unwanted pigmentation.
- Forma RF is a comfortable and relaxing treatment that stimulates collagen and elastin production and brings back suppleness without needles or downtime. It is an excellent maintenance treatment after Morpheus8 and a perfect “pick me up” before an event. Our staff and clients love our Forma facial!
- Chemical Peels designed for skin tightening offer an alternative to mechanical stimulation, such as microneedling, and address both superficial and deeper layers of the skin. Cataleya Aesthetics offers high-end, advanced chemical peels from Mediderma, Wiqo, VI, and other reputable European producers. Peels are also excellent at diminishing fine lines, wrinkles, and enlarged pores. In addition, bundling chemical peels and collagen induction therapy via microneedling produces outstanding results and is one of our client’s favorites!
- It is always recommended to combine skin-tightening technologies with a practical at-home skincare routine. Cataleya Aesthetics offers Clinical Grade Skin Care lines such as Epionce (USA), Vivant (USA), and Sesderma (Spain). These products will protect your result, slow the aging process, and keep your skin nourished and well-hydrated. Our esthetician will help you select the products based on your skin needs and desired effects.
- Injectable hyaluronic acid Dermal Fillers are sometimes necessary to rebuild the lost volume under the skin, reduce hollowness, and restore the structure. Once the skin is better supported and there is less sagging, the face will appear more youthful and balanced. Some fillers are quite soft and can be used superficially to intensely hydrate the skin and to further improve its elasticity.
