4-Stage Face Lifting Treatment
Treatment Time: 1.5 Hours
Many anti-ageing treatments work to disguise the signs of ageing but do not treat the underlying cause of the problem.
Jessicat’s Four Stage Face Lifting Process does.
At Jessicat’s Medi-Spa we feel it is important to treat the face as a whole, due to the features falling from top to bottom as we age due to the effects of thinning skin. When facilitating anti-ageing therapies for the face and neck, the integrity and strength of the skin need to be addressed to obtain the most powerful and lasting effects.
When we are young the features of the face appear lifted, toned, and full. Youthful skin appears firm and full due to there being an extra layer of fat (commonly referred to as puppy fat). It is thick with rich blood vessels, collagen, and elastin growth, and due to this has good elasticity, snapping back into position after expressions are made.
As we age the face can become thinner, making it integral to keep the appearance of the skin as thick and healthy as possible to attain and keep a youthful look.
One of the main reasons the appearance of our face, neck, and chest areas change as we age is due to thinning skin.
Why does this happen?
Because at a certain time in our lives (it is different for everyone) our skin cells simply stop functioning the way they used to due to decreasing levels of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) which is the very energy currency within the cells of the skin cells. Having less ATP production means the cells create less collagen and elastin growth which is the very building blocks of the skin, creating the mesh that makes up its bulk. As the skin thins blood vessel growth also decreases, meaning less oxygen and nutrients are feed into the skin cells.
The less oxygen and nutrients are fed into the skin cells the less ATP production occurs. Lessening ATP production leads to less collagen and elastin production and so this process goes around and around as the skin continues to thin leading to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles that deepen over time and a lack of elasticity that causes the skin to fall and sag on the features of the face and neck.
The 4-Stage Face Lifting Process works to rebuild the strength and integrity of the skin by addressing the underlying problem of lessening ATP production, blood vessels, collagen, and elastin growth. As the skin is triggered into behaving as it did in our youth other issues such as congestion that can cause blackheads, whiteheads, and pimples are addressed as well as improving the overall pigmentation.
How The 4-Stage Face Lifting Process Works:
Step One – Microcurrent Exfoliation
At the beginning of the 4-Stage Face Lifting process, a Bt-micro device is used to provide a deep micro-current exfoliation to draw out impurities from deep within the skin. This revolutionary exfoliation process creates more space between the skin cells, allowing LED Light and Venus Freeze Therapies to penetrate more deeply.
Step Two – Green LED Light Rejuvenation
Green LED Light therapy works to prepare the skin by decreasing inflammation (very important when hormonal imbalances are present in mature age skin types) as well as fade hyper-pigmentation. Mottled pigmentation can make us look older by highlighting imperfections such as fine lines and wrinkles, so improving overall pigmentation is an integral step in creating a more youthful look to the skin overall.
Step Three- Red LED Light Rejuvenation
Red LED Light Rejuvenation improves the integrity of the skin, facilitating increased ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) levels. ATP is referred to as “the energy of life” by scientists due to it being the very energy currency within the skin cells. When cells have high levels of ATP they function optimally, producing higher levels of collagen and elastin growth and pushing the effects of the Venus Freeze Therapy.
Step Four- Venus Freeze Therapy
Venus Freeze therapy harnesses the power of pulsed electromagnetic and multi-polar radiofrequency, delivered into the dermis (the 5th layer of the skin) to trigger the collagen triple helix to shrink and trigger micro-inflammatory stimulation of fibroblasts, producing profound new collagen, elastin, and blood vessel growth. When done in the correct number Venus Freeze treatments work to create dramatically more bulk within thinned skin to give it a dramatically tighter appearance as well as the ability to snap back into position after expressions are made.
EXILIS ULTRA 360 is a monopolar-radiofrequency and ultrasound device that works to dramatically improve the look of fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and skin laxity and may be used in place of Venus Freeze therapy depending on a client’s individual needs.
