As you age, your body stops producing collagen at the same rate it did when you were younger. Without collagen the skin will lose its elasticity and vibrancy, and start to sag. This can be especially difficult when you notice these effects to your face. Over time, the skin around your neck, under your chin, and near the eyebrows can start to loosen. Loose skin will make you look older and feel less confident about your appearance. In the past, patients would have required getting surgical intervention in the form of a facelift to reduce this effect. Luckily, Bridgeport Last & Wellness has solutions to help tighten your skin and give you a more youthful and vibrant look to your face.
Potenza is another treatment that is less invasive than surgery, but still involves the skin being penetrated to promote healing. When the skin is injured, the body produces collagen and sends it to the site of the injury to promote healing. Since the body slows its collagen production when you age, it needs a kickstart. Potenza is a form of microneedling that involves puncturing the skin with tiny needles to force the body to produce collagen. It will then go to the site and heal the superficial wounds, leaving behind more flexible and vibrant skin.
