Collagen is essential for healthy young-looking skin because it gives structures to the cells and supports the dermis. As we age, the production of collagen reduces causing our skin to lose laxity and create wrinkles. This process is natural and can be expedited by environmental factors like smoking, sun exposure, and pollution.
Soft tissue or dermal fillers are one treatment that can be used to “plump” up or “volumize” the skin, restoring a more youthful appearance. As an alternative, SmoothLift™ in is a non-invasive treatment offered by Facial Esthetics One that heats up the skin intraorally and targets volume through a process called collagen induction.
The result is an overall improvement of tightness and elasticity of the skin along with a plumping effect, much like a filler.
This cutting edge treatment is an intraoral procedure and will require you to keep your mouth open throughout the duration of the procedure. You can expect minimal to no discomfort during the treatment. Immediately following the treatment you may experience some redness or swelling that will diminish after a few hours and an immediate tightness and fullness of the area. Most patients can resume their daily activities immediately following the treatment.
