Tissue or Muscle Flaccidity: How to identify and treat each condition
It is important to differentiate these two genres for effective treatment
Over the years, the skin loses the structure and vitality of youth and becomes flaccid and inflexible, nothing desired by women. Many people do not know how to identify the type of flaccidity they are affected with, and this identification is essential for effective and rejuvenating treatment.
Tissue Flaccidity (or skin flaccidity) can be seen when collagen fibers begin to shrink and become disorganized due to malnutrition or dehydration. Other factors such as solar radiation, poor diet and lack of daily care also contribute to this effect, which is always magnified by the action of the gravitational force.
Muscle flaccidity occurs in the subcutaneous musculature, and it affects the strength of the muscles by the wearing down of the supporting fibers. This action is characterized by the decrease of the proteins that give vigor to these fibers.
It is very important to differentiate these two genres so that the treatment is specific, ensuring the best results.
HTM´s device, Stimulus Face, works on Facial Muscular Flaccidity through the action of electrotherapeutic currents like the Russian Current and Stimulus Current. This combination contributes to increase muscle strength, preventing and reducing flaccidity, aiding face lifting and modeling.
Ultrafocus, also from HTM, is the only focused ultrasound device in Brazil with a specific applicator for facial procedures that treats Facial Tissue Flaccidity through three tips with distinct depth that act in a punctual way, reaching the structures of the dermis in a specific way, being determined by the depth and degree of flaccidity.
According to the scientific consultant, Aline Marques, these treatments association will act in the dermal structure, in Ultrafocus case, and Stimulus Face will act with the electrostimulation, contributing to the conditioning of the face musculature, improving the appearance of skin and muscle tone, ensuring greater firmness and elasticity.”
It takes around 3 sessions with a 30-day interval for Ultrafocus treatments and 6 to 10 sessions with Stimulus Face currents. The number of sessions will be indicated according to the flaccidity degree of each patient.
