Loose Skin Treatment Options
Sagging skin changes us. It not only alters our features, but causes new fine lines and wrinkles, hoods our eyes, and can have even the most confident person suddenly covering up their neck. Loose skin is a significant concern for many individuals encountering premature aging – but it can be tricky to treat without surgical intervention.
Don’t turn to a facelift for which you’re not emotionally, physically or financially prepared. Modern treatment options are making noninvasive measures effective, comfortable and safe for those hoping to reduce skin laxity.
We offer a variety of treatments appropriate for loose skin. In order to determine which is ideal for you, we recommend that you schedule a consultation. We will examine your skin, perform a digital skin analysis to identify areas of concern, and discuss your treatment goals. You may benefit from a specific technology, or a more complex treatment plan that incorporates several treatments. We will discuss everything with you prior to beginning your treatment plan and answer any questions you may have – you should be completely comfortable with this process.
Firm and lift skin, and regain a youthful glow – it’s all possible, without surgery.
Why do I have sagging skin?
- General aging – Throughout the aging process, connective tissues in your skin break down. The loss of collagen and elastin lead to skin becoming more loose and less resilient. Weakening facial muscles intensify this effect.
- Sun exposure – The UV rays cause damage to skin cells, which can speed up the aging process by breaking down connective tissues more quickly.
- Weight loss – While weight loss is typically a positive result of hard work, there can be negative side effects. Those who lose a large amount of weight quickly are likely to see loose skin, as the skin doesn’t have enough time to bounce back to its pre-weight gain shape.
- Genetics – We can be genetically predisposed to loose skin. While this is unavoidable, paying attention to other factors like sun exposure can help you combat the effects.
What’s the best option for my loose skin?
We offer a variety of treatment options, and will help you select the treatment that fits your skin and your treatment goals. Ultherapy is the gold standard for sagging skin – it offers excellent results that take hold over time, and stimulates your body’s own collagen production. Laser skin resurfacing also helps to improve fine lines and wrinkles causing by loose skin. Patients interested in more affordable options will benefit from microneedling or HydraFacials.
