3DEEP® can tighten sagging or loose skin wherever it exists on the body. The treatment is commonly used to reduce wrinkles and firm areas of the face and neck. Other areas include chest, upper arms, abdomen, thighs and buttocks.
Our skin is supported by a network of collagen and elastin fibers in the middle layer of the skin, beneath the epidermis (dermis). Collagen provides structural support and gives the dermis its resistance to strain and traction, while elastin gives skin its elasticity.
As we age, skin loses some of its firmness and elasticity. After age 35, our skin gradually loses its firm, youthful look as our body’s natural levels of collagen and elastin begin to slowly decline.
Environmental factors such as urban pollution, photodamage caused by long-term sun exposure, hereditary and lifestyle factors including, smoking, alcohol consumption, poor nutrition and stress can hasten collagen and elastin’s decline and contribute to these fibers becoming less structured and less elastic. This results in thinning of the skin, fine lines and wrinkles and sagging of the skin, also known as skin laxity.
The good news is that it is possible to reduce some of these signs of aging with noninvasive methods. There is now a novel multi-source, phase-controlled, radiofrequency technology that is safe, effective and targets the face, skin and body called 3DEEP® technology. Our experience has shown that when using the 3DEEP®, it is possible to tighten loose skin and promote production of healthier, new collagen. 3DEEP® addresses Facial Tightening, Body Tightening, Body Contouring and Fractional Skin Resurfacing (FSR).
