If you’re looking to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, skin texture, and discoloration, you may have questions about how these treatments work. We’re here to answer them!
Thankfully, many different treatment options can help you look younger. But before we dive into the specifics of each, it’s essential to understand what works best for your unique needs.

There are many types of stem cells, which include adipose-derived stem cells (ASCs) and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs). ASCs in many organs and tissues can renew themselves or create new tissue.
iPSCs, on the other hand, are cells that have been reprogrammed to become a pluripotent state by forcing the expression of master regulator genes. This allows them to differentiate into all the cell types that comprise the body.
Stem cells are an essential part of the natural regeneration process that occurs throughout our bodies. They help us recover from injury or disease, and they also replace tissue that is lost due to aging.
For instance, stem cell facial treatments at Liv & Lo are famous for those looking to rejuvenate their skin. A stem cell treatment can improve skin health by repairing damage, increasing healthy blood flow, and encouraging collagen production. It can also help reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
Microneedling is a safe and effective way to lessen the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scars, and sun damage. It also helps to improve skin elasticity, minimizing the appearance of acne scars and stretch marks.
It triggers your body’s natural healing process, producing more collagen and elastin, two proteins that help keep your skin looking young and smooth. Dermatologists or licensed estheticians can perform it.
Dermatologists use a particular medical-grade device that contains needles to create tiny holes under your skin. These pinpricks cause the cells under your skin to go into “repair mode,” inducing collagen and elastin production.
This treatment can be used to treat all types of skin concerns. It can minimize the appearance of wrinkles, dark spots, and sun damage, and it can even help to decrease pore size.
Using radio frequency (RF) energy to penetrate deeper into the skin safely, fractional RF is another effective nonsurgical technique. It can treat pigmentation, sun damage, scarring, pores, and wrinkles – even darker-skinned patients can benefit from this treatment.
Fractional RF devices emit a broad spectrum of radio frequency energy into the epidermis in tiny pinpoints. This heats the tissue and induces a wound-healing response in the cells, helping to promote new collagen production and reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and loose skin.
During the procedure, your certified practitioner gently presses the device applicator on the skin’s surface to create microscopic wounds that boost your natural healing process and trigger new collagen production. Results can be seen after 2-4 treatments.
Ultherapy is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment that uses ultrasound energy to tighten and lift skin. It stimulates your body to produce more collagen, the natural protein that provides a youthful, firm appearance.
It effectively treats sagging eyelids, loose skin around the neck and chest, and other face and body areas. Results are visible within two to three months and continue to improve for several years, thanks to the new collagen produced by your body.
During treatment, your provider will apply the Ultherapy device to your skin and focus the ultrasound energy below it. This creates a cellular friction response, heating the tissue to a precise, pinpoint temperature.
