Skin Tightening and Age Spot Removal

Firm, tight, and youthful-looking skin is dependent on three proteins: collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. Collagen is responsible for the structure and strength of your tissues, elastin gives your skin its elasticity and stretch, and hyaluronic acid attracts moisture to keep your tissues hydrated and smooth. The body naturally produces these proteins; however, age, sun damage, and exposure to harsh environmental elements reduce the amount of these. When this occurs, your skin becomes lax with fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots. Cosmetic treatments, such as laser resurfacing, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and microneedling stimulate collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid production to tighten the skin and remove the appearance of unwanted age spots.
