Radiancy handles all matters of the skin, so you can enjoy a fresh, young look and regain your lost confidence. One of the issues we address here is skin laxity and periorbital wrinkles. These are two of the most commonly met and also most visible facial aging marks. We make full use of infrared light during a procedure that will help us reach the deep dermal levels and trigger healing responses causes by dermal trauma. We invite you to read more about our LHE Skin Tightening treatment, a procedure that is going to provide you with the effective results you are searching for, pain and discomfort-free.


How Does The LHE Skin Tightening Treatment Work?

On short, the LHE Skin Tightening procedure works by emitting infrared light energy using a 30-second based pulse. The heat will have sufficient time to get deep enough into the skin (1 to 3 millimeters), while protecting it from any damages. The main target is the reticular dermis and, during the procedure, the temperature of the derma is raised up to 50-60˚C maximum. The epidermis will have a temperature below 40-42˚C to avoid patient discomfort and potential side effects. Patients will be able to happily discover their visible results in about 5 weeks after the intervention and the good news is the effects will become even more noticeable in time.


How To Prevent Premature Skin Aging

While solutions do exist, you might want to do something about actually preventing the aging effects from becoming visible too soon. We are talking about both internal and external type of skin aging – and even though you cannot do anything to actually prevent it, you can prevent it from happening too soon in your life. So start by paying attention to the things you ingest. Start paying a lot more attention to colorful fruit and vegetables which are highly rich in the antioxidants your skin needs to maintain its collagen and elasticity levels. Eat a lot of strawberries and blueberries and try to eat foods containing as many vitamins as possible. Vitamins A, C, and E are some of the most popular choice you could be making and multivitamin supplements can also prove to be an excellent idea if your diet proves to be deficient. Stay away from fats, as they produce the free radicals responsible for skin aging.


Social Habits That Ruin Your Skin

Keep alcohol and cigarettes as far away as possible, as these are a couple of the most harmful abuse substances you could be ingesting. Cigarette smoke triggers the blood to flow into the skin at a lower rate, due to capillary constriction. This means your skin is poorly oxygenated and hence lacks the necessary nutrients. Cigarette smoke also causes damages to the collagen and elastin fibers in the skin, and there are plenty of studies that have proven the similar effects of second hand smoking on the skin.

Alcohol has similar constriction effects on the face blood vessels and it also dries the skin, causing wrinkles.


Sun Exposure – How To Handle It

Expect many wrinkles to be coming your way if you have a tan obsession. Also expect pretty severe skin damages – you will notice these effects throughout the years and hence be reticent at the moment when you are reading this. Limit your tanning time and use UVA and UVB sunscreens.
