Think you know all there is about skin care? The upcoming Just Us Girls event on April 25 at 6 p.m. is the place to learn about how to treat wrinkles, what works and what doesn’t and the products you love from the licensed medical aestheticians and certified nurse injectors at Graper Cosmetic Surgery.
But before you RSVP, let’s see how much you know about skin care.
True or false: There are different kinds of wrinkles.
Answer: True. Depending on your sun exposure to different parts of your body, wrinkles can be categorized as fine, surface lines or deeper furrows. No matter what wrinkles you may see in the mirror, ThermiSmooth Face can reduce or soften them. It works by heating the skin to produce new collagen, tightening and freshening the applied area. Injections such as Botox and Juvederm can also reduce or eliminate some types of wrinkles and folds for various lengths of time.
True or false: Skin repairs itself more slowly as we age.
Answer: True. As you age, you can lose 20 to 80 percent of thickness to your dermis (the layer of skin below the epidermis), the result of changes in collagen cells. This means our bodies are producing collagen at a slower rate and not able to repair skin as quickly. That’s why measures beyond creams may be needed to bring back collagen elasticity.
ThermiTight is a minimally invasive procedure that tightens skin in the face, arms, abdomen, face, knees and inner thighs by inducing new collagen into the treatment areas, heating the tissues to specific temperatures for smooth results. Peptide-infused MicroNeedling and BBL treatments also stimulate collagen.
True or false: There’s no easy way to reduce cellulite.
Answer: False. The cellulite you see on thighs and other body parts are pockets of fat beneath your skin pushing against the connective tissue, causing a puckered appearance. No matter your size, you can have cellulite on your body, and it’s not completely related to genetics. While there are exercise moves you can do to reduce their appearance, there’s a quicker way. A new FDA-cleared procedure, called Cellfina, can reduce cellulite in one visit without pain.
