Knee rejuvenation: Univers NuFace treatments
While knee rejuvenation isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when thinking about aesthetic medicine, the fact remains that our knees are regularly exposed to external factors that leave them susceptible to premature aging.
As we age, our metabolism slows down and increasingly secretes less of certain molecules that are necessary for its own renewal. This results in natural aging that leads to fat accumulation, sagging skin and muscle, as well as a general loss of tone. The knees are not spared this phenomenon and therefore require the same level of care as any other part of the body.
Univers NuFace offers a range of non-surgical treatments and procedures to rejuvenate your needs according to your specific needs.

Thermage slows down the aging process and reduces the signs of old age. It improves skin tone and gives your skin a smoother and more harmonious appearance.
Results steadily improve over the weeks as the collagen matrix is reconstructed. Your knees will ultimately look younger and firmer.

Univers NuFace: practical advice
To the detriment of many, little attention and consideration are paid to the knees. Yet, like any other bodily region, they are very exposed and significantly prone to skin aging.
Over the years, fat settles in and skin and muscles begin to sag, giving the knees a swollen and wrinkled appearance.

- Prioritize foods containing potassium. This mineral promotes water absorption necessary for skin hydration.
- Regularly practice physical activity that builds knee muscles without being too stressful on your joints. Swimming is an excellent example.
- Monitoring your diet is also a great way to prevent skin aging. Avoid fatty or overly-salted foods such as “bad fats” as much as possible. Instead, get your fat from fruits and nuts (olive oil, coconut oil, avocado, etc.), while being careful not to overheat them to avoid saturating the fats.
