Once you gain a basic understanding of what causes the development of those fine lines and wrinkles that you don’t like seeing when you look in the mirror, it becomes a little easier to understand what makes some of the treatments effective. While lines and wrinkles are commonly associated with the aging process, you may wonder about what it is specifically that causes these signs. When you know the science behind the signs of aging, eMatrix skin tightening becomes an obvious solution. You’ll see why so many celebrities and reality TV stars are using these treatments.
In the lower layers of your skin is a substance called collagen that helps the tissue stick together. It also makes the skin tight and full looking. While the body produces it naturally, it will decrease the levels of production as the years start to add up. This reduction in the substance causes the skin to loosen. Consequently, it will begin to sag and develop lines and wrinkles. Since a lack of collagen is the basic cause for fine lines and wrinkles, increasing its quantities can restore tightness that will make the lines and wrinkles disappear.
The eMatrix skin tightening treatment will stimulate the production of collagen in the skin. With energy directed to the layers of the skin where the substance is created, more of it will grow in response to the heat that is generated during the treatment. The treatments are delivered in a similar manner as fractional laser therapy, but radiofrequency energy is used rather than lasers. The treatment employs microscopically sized columns of energy to penetrate the surface of the skin in a grid-like pattern. Healthy tissue that is adjacent to these tiny places where the energy hit will speed up the healing process, after which the skin will be smoother and younger looking. There will also be some degree of skin tightening that takes place right away as the skin reacts to the therapy.
Most of the skin tightening will take place over the following weeks as the collagen grows to peak levels. Since growth is a gradual process, the lines and wrinkles will disappear gradually as the skin tightens. This happens because the energy that penetrates the surface of the skin is absorbed to the deeper layers, where collagen growth takes place.
