One of the most noticeable signs of aging is the appearance of sagging or drooping skin around the eyes, also known as periorbital skin laxity. Thanks to advancements in aesthetic treatments, a cutting-edge technique called fibroblast therapy is gaining popularity for effectively addressing this concern.
Causes of Periorbital Skin Laxity:
- Age: As we grow older, our skin gradually loses its elasticity and collagen, resulting in laxity or drooping.
- Sun Damage: Prolonged sun exposure can accelerate the breakdown of collagen and elastin fibers, leading to premature aging and sagging skin.
- Genetics: Some individuals may be genetically predisposed to developing periorbital skin laxity.
- Lifestyle Choices: Unhealthy habits such as smoking, poor nutrition, and inadequate skincare routines can also contribute to the loss of skin elasticity.
What is Fibroblast Therapy?:
- Fibroblasts are specialized cells in our skin that produce collagen, elastin, and other proteins essential for maintaining its firmness and elasticity. Fibroblast therapy utilizes a non-invasive technique that stimulates these cells to promote natural rejuvenation.
- During the treatment, a skilled aesthetic professional uses a handheld device to deliver controlled electrical plasma energy to the targeted area around the eyes. This energy creates tiny, controlled micro-injuries on the skin’s surface, triggering the body’s healing response. As a result, the fibroblasts are activated, promoting the production of collagen and elastin fibers, which tighten and lift the skin.
- Tighter and Firmer Skin: Over time, as the collagen and elastin production increases, the treated area becomes tighter, resulting in a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.
- Reduction in Wrinkles and Fine Lines: Fibroblast therapy helps diminish the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes, making them less prominent.
- Improved Skin Texture: The treatment can also enhance the overall texture of the skin, leaving it smoother and more supple.
- Minimal Downtime: Unlike invasive procedures, fibroblast therapy is relatively quick, and most people can resume their regular activities shortly after treatment.
- Long-lasting Results: While individual results may vary, the effects of fibroblast therapy can last for several months to years, depending on individual factors and skincare habits.
