Tickle, tickle? Yes, tickling your fibroblasts is the third and last part of Halley’s Firming Formula. (Read the first and second part.)
That’s because fibroblasts are critical in the firming process. They are the connective tissue cells present in our body which produces collagen.
Collagen? Tickle them silly then, but how?
After prepping our body with the right diet strategy and nourishing our skin with the right skincare ingredients, Dr. Terence Tan says we must “zoom in on evidence-based facial firming therapies that are effective in stimulating fibroblasts and collagen production rather than believe in beauty hearsay.” Dr. Tan is the Director of Halley Medical Aesthetics.
Examples of therapies that stimulate fibroblasts and collagen production include:
- Laser treatments like the “Long Pulsed” restoration laser, which firms the skin through stimulation of collagen production through fibroblast cells.
- Halley’s Ultimate Facial Rejuvenation Treatment: This treatment offers an optimal and a more radical rejuvenation of the face by combining Micro-Botox® (Intradermal-Botox®) with two laser treatments—“Long Pulsed” Restoration Laser and “Q-Switched” Brightening Laser. This is a compact treatment for skin toning, firming, brightening, and pore size, inflammation, and redness reduction. It results in smooth, firm skin that glows and shows no visible pores or wrinkles at close up.
- Ultherapy: Ultherapy is the only US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved non-invasive, no-downtime skin tightening treatment that uses focused ultrasound and the body’s own natural healing process to lift, tone, and tighten loose skin. Using ultrasound technology, Ultherapy works from the inside-out to lift and tighten skin non-invasively. The body’s response to this energy is to recondition tired skin by stimulating the growth of fresh, new collagen. The result is a tightening and gradual lifting—or shifting—of the skin back into a more youthful position and form-fitting shape.
