I’ve began Tretinoin 0.025% on my arms on the recommendation of the PA dermatologist. Are there any lasers that may lower the bruising from minor bumps and strain?

Crepey pores and skin on the physique! We’re match, wholesome and growing older. What can we do?

  • Part I was on prevention
  • Half II is on particular physique areas and newer RF and laser tech.
  • And Half 3 can be on prices, and what could also be potential within the close to future.

The beneath are my present opinions, based mostly on loads of expertise and likewise therapies on myself. I’m going to a complicated laser and RF (radiofrequency) convention in August, so I’ll replace this after that once more, probably. 🙂

Please remember the fact that nothing is ideal, and we’re all people so particular person responses will differ. To not point out the gear and the physician, nurse, and so on.

Physique Areas:

Necks: That is nonetheless a holy grail for my part. Quantity loss on the face will make the neck sag and crinkle. Change quantity loss upstream and tighten with deep RF like Profound, then use extra superficial RF and CO2 laser (have to be carried out appropriately) after that.

Chest:  Collagen stimulation with physique dilution Sculptra first, then crimson and brown discoloration with IPL/BBL if wanted, then sort out deeper brown spots and wrinkles with Fraxel Twin or CO2 carried out evenly. PRPFM might be good right here additionally.

Higher Arm:  If fats pads, contemplate Coolsculpting first, then mid-level RF tightening with presumably Morpheus or EmSculpt (don’t love the choices for this). If very crepey, then contemplate physique dilution Sculptra for collagen constructing. Use a BHA 2% lotion.

Forearm:  Tends to be lean and never a lot further fats. Physique dilution Scuptra works right here, plus gentle RF and even microneedling carried out with PRPFM injected and/or topical.

Fingers: Attempt plumping first with Juvederm Extremely Plus XC – 1 syringe in every hand. Lasers are onerous to heal on the arms attributable to a lot use. Gentle RF and even gentle microneedling with PRPFM might help.

Stomach: Since we have a tendency to gather fats right here as we age, fats busting tech like Coolsculpting, or liposuction could assist. Some swear by EmSculpt right here nevertheless it’s fairly excessive upkeep and costly. And the health club provides you different advantages like cardio. Thermage, Exilis (gentle RF) have a tendency to not work nicely right here.

Buttocks/Glutes:  Okay… I nonetheless suppose the health club is the most effective, or a house glute arrange (see the net) that takes 10-20 min 2-3 instances per week. You’ll construct muscle in that space which may clear up the vast majority of the issue. Cellulite is its personal challenge as a result of it’s associated to how the fats it tethered beneath and should not reply to the health club. Sculptra works nicely right here however is pricey as a result of loads is required. Stair climbing (like 20-30 flights) 1-2 instances per week also can actually assist you to agency up. You’ll see ends in 2-4 weeks.

Thighs: The outer thigh is nearly by no means crepey; it’s the interior thigh. If there’s fats, attempt Coolsculpting there. Typically lipo simply leaves extra free pores and skin. There’s some pores and skin tightening, normally with CS. Physique dilution Sulptra and hyperdilute Radiesse might help right here (specialists solely). I’m hopeful about among the new RF tech coming. Extra on that in August.

Decrease Legs & Toes:  Not sometimes crepey, however the pores and skin will get actually dry and the cells are beneath energetic. Attempt a BHA 2% physique lotion or utilizing a low power retinol a number of instances per week. Scrubs are good for exfoliation to get cells extra energetic. If you happen to’re having hassle with discoloration put on help hose extra particularly when it’s scorching or do yoga inversions (get instruction), or it may very well be associated to your aspirin or NSAIDS so focus on together with your physician.
