Improving the youthful appearance of skin requires the right type of treatment. Although many options are available to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and scars, the FX Lift is a newer procedure that has shown a dramatic impact on the skin.
FX Lift Treatment Basics
The FX Lift is a type of anti-aging treatment that helps tighten and lift the skin while encouraging collagen production. It uses a fractional CO2 laser for the greatest impact on the skin. The carbon dioxide laser is commonly used in skin resurfacing techniques to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, scars and skin pigmentation. The difference with an FX Lift is that the CO2 laser is also fractionated and it combines three different laser techniques to get the best impact on the skin.
After the treatment is completed, a short amount of recovery time is necessary to allow the collagen to fill in fine lines, wrinkles and scars. The natural collagen production will cause the skin to lift and tighten, which creates a youthful appearance.
FX Lift Treatment Effectiveness
As an anti-aging treatment, the FX Lift San Diego is an effective and long-lasting treatment solution. The purpose of the treatment is lifting, tightening, smoothing and plumping the skin to create the elasticity of youth. After the 7 day recovery period, the skin will look and feel younger.
The key to the treatment is collagen production. As a laser treatment, the body is encouraged to produce natural collagen to fill in the lines. Since the treatment encourages natural collagen production, the results will last for several years as the collagen follows the normal course of breaking down slowly. Exact rates of collagen breakdown vary based on factors like genetics, dietary habits and spending time in the sun. Proper care of the skin after the treatment will help maintain the youthful look for a longer period of time.
The FX Lift is a useful anti-aging treatment. It effectively tightens the skin and maintains a youthful look for a long period of time after the recovery period. While it is not the right treatment for every individual, it can help improve anti-aging efforts.
