Aging skin is a problem for all. Although there are numerous treatments available to combat the ravages of time, many women and men find they aren't obtaining the desired results. As technology develops, however, more and more methods are being offered that should be considered. Following are three such options.

UltherapySandy Fridge, LME

Women who suffer from sagging skin/wrinkles, and who aren’t quite ready for surgery, may choose to make use of ultherapy to correct these common problems. Ultrasound energy is used to tighten and lift the skin creating a more defined neck and jawline. It reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the brow, chin and neck area, as well as a woman's décolletage. With the help of ultherapy, women find they look younger and fresher and feel great as a result.

IPL Photofacial Treatment

Often referred to as photo-rejuvenation, IPL photofacial treatment involves the use of intense light pulses to reach the deep layers of the skin. Doing so causes the blood vessels and collagen located under the epidermis to constrict, which in turn helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines, brown spots and redness in the skin. The procedure takes approximately 30 minutes and there is very little discomfort associated with it. Results are seen in 1-2 weeks, and the swelling and redness observed following the procedure tend to disappear quickly. This treatment is great for the face, neck, chest and the back of the hands.


Women who have multiple skin concerns, such as fine lines, brown spots and open pores often turn to Dermafrac®, as this procedure correct many issues at one time. A roller containing 180 superfine needles is used on the skin to stimulate the renewal of cells and the production of collagen. The holes created by the skin are then able to benefit more from a facial serum, as it can reach deeper into the skin. Once completed, the patient's skin will be smoother, firmer and plumper.
