Collagen is a protein fiber that serves as the structural framework for the skin. It holds the skin tissues upright to make them defy gravity and look firm. Collagen essentially adds strength and volume to your skin, while elastin adds flexibility. However, as we grow older, our body’s ability to produce collagen and elastin decreases and the lack of collagen leads to skin laxity.
The Cartessa Light EVO device delivers thermal energy into the skin’s deeper tissues to activate your body’s collagen production capabilities. The technology’s electrodes deliver laser energy deep within the skin’s tissues without breaking the visible skin on the surface. As your body produces collagen, your skin looks firm, taut, and youthful.
The gradual loss of collagen also leads to wrinkles and fine lines on your skin’s surface. The lack of a structural framework to plump your skin makes it droop downwards, giving the impression of downward lines and wrinkles that make you look old, tired, and sad. Restoring your body’s collagen reserves also reduces wrinkles and fine lines.
The Cartessa Light EVO device delivers laser energy into the skin’s surface to activate collagen and elastin formation, which, in turn, restores your youthfulness. The increased collagen and elastin make your skin appear plump and hydrated, filling out the wrinkles and fine lines. The treatment produces immediate results that gradually improve over several weeks.
