They mark the skin with whitish lines or with more or less deep grooves: however, stretch marks and wrinkles can be effectively reduced with icoone
They worry many new mothers: after pregnancy, after being “stretched” due to weight gain during pregnancy and then emptied after childbirth and weight loss in the following months, skin is often marked by unsightly stretch marks. This causes them to dream of smooth and blemish-free skin, the same as those who have to deal with wrinkles: they are inevitable as time goes by, but many women would like them to disappear from their face and not only, as if by magic, with a really effective anti wrinkle treatment.
These blemishes are both ‘lines’ on the surface of the skin, but they are caused by different reasons and look different.
- Stretch marks are in most cases the result of a rapid change in the weight and measurements of the body: blood vessels are stretched and less oxygen reaches the epidermis, collagen fibres break down (especially if the skin is not very elastic). These streaks form, first looking red and then whitish, with a loose consistency indicating the loss of skin elasticity; they are found mainly on the tummy, but also on thighs, buttocks, hips, breasts and arms.
- Wrinkles depend on the progressive reduction in the activity of fibroblasts, the connective tissue cells that produce elastin and collagen to create the scaffolding that supports the skin; the fibres are thinner and more fragile as the years go by, and so the skin loses tone and becomes marked by increasingly visible lines, due also to skin dehydration, which increases with age. The ones on the face are the most unbearable, but as we age the skin all over our body tends to wrinkle.
Speaking of stretch marks, the skin has a kind of scar where collagen is scarce and oxygenation is also lacking. These are two problems that icoone can help solve with Multi Micro Alveolar Stimulation, an innovative and unique stimulation that mobilises the skin and subcutaneous tissue down to the deepest layers: thanks to special handpieces equipped with microstimulators that, like thousands of tiny hands, massage the skin, providing up to 21,600 microstimulations per minute, after just one session with icoone blood flow in the treated area increases and the appearance and quality of the skin improves.
icoone is also decisive against unbearable wrinkles. The facial massage possible with this non-invasive treatment without side effects improves circulation in skin by activating the production of elastin and collagen by the fibroblasts, thanks to the micro-handpieces just 7 mm wide that can reach everywhere on the face and neck. The treatment also leaves skin fibres more elastic, with an immediate anti wrinkle effect, visible after just a few minutes of application
