This procedure, performed with the Epi-Lift™, is done with intense pulses of light. Light passes beyond the skin's surface level to produce a heating of the deep elastic fibers of collagen. This heating shortens the collagen's connective tissue, yielding tighter, smoother skin.
It perpetuates the production of new fibroblast tissue, which in turn produces new, stronger collagen tissue. It also destroys pigmented lesions that are a product of solar damage, so the overall skin surface becomes more even and consistent in color.It is the recommendation of our cosmetic clinical specialist that you use a combination of microdermabrasion with your Epi-Lift™ treatments to further smooth the skin's surface, increase circulation, and allow further permeation of the light's thermal activity. This process yields an overall improvement of the skin with decreased signs of aging.
