Over time, our skin loses collagen and elasticity and eventually begins to sag. To restore a more youthful appearance and defy the signs of aging, there are several treatments we have to repair, restore and even rebuild sagging skin.
What is Sagging Skin?
Sagging skin is a condition that can occur as we age due to a loss of elasticity in the skin. The skin around our faces, especially, is susceptible to sagging as gravity takes its toll. Sagging skin can be frustrating and distracting, but many treatments can help improve the skin’s appearance.
What Causes Sagging Skin?
There are a number of factors that can contribute to the loss of elasticity, including sun damage, Smoking, poor diet, and lack of exercise. Once the skin has lost its elasticity, it becomes less able to bounce back into place after being stretched or pulled. This can result in wrinkles, fine lines, and drooping skin.
Dermal fillers can be used to restore volume to areas of the face like the cheeks, temples and nasolabial folds. They can be used to add volume to thinning lips, enhance the chin and cosmetically re-shape the nose and even the hands. Our fillers are safe and don’t require you to stay off your feet when you’re done.
Ultherapy is the ONLY FDA-cleared, non-invasive procedure that lifts the neck, chin, and brow as well as improves lines and wrinkles on the upper chest by delivering collagen-boosting energy precisely and accurately to the treatment area.
Radio Frequency Skin Tightening
Our RF Skin Tightening treatment takes skin tightening to a whole new level.
Using Radio Frequency, heat is safely delivered through microneedle technology deep into the skin with no bleeding or bruising and minimal downtime.
Intensif® (Microneedling with Radio Frequency)
Our Intensif® treatment uses precise needles to stimulate the replacement of surface skin cells, revealing young, glowing skin underneath. When we combine microneedling with RF, the added benefit of extra collagen stimulation in addition to the microneedling can give remarkable results.
Sagging Skin FAQ
Can you restore saggy skin?
Fortunately, there are non-surgical treatments that can help restore a more youthful appearance. Radiofrequency and ultrasonic waves are two of the most popular non-surgical treatments for saggy skin. These waves help stimulate collagen production, which helps to tighten the skin.
Additionally, laser therapy can also be used to help restore saggy skin. Laser therapy works by heating the deeper layers of skin, causing the collagen fibers to contract. As a result, the skin appears firmer and more toned. Combining these non-surgical treatments makes it possible to restore saggy skin and achieve a more youthful appearance.
How long does it take for sagging skin to tighten?
Though you can’t completely turn back the clock, there are non-surgical treatments available that can help to restore saggy skin. These include procedures like laser skin resurfacing, microneedling, and radiofrequency treatment. Each of these works slightly differently, but all share the goal of stimulating collagen production, which can help tighten and lift the skin. Depending on the treatment you decide on, the time and amount of treatments will vary.
Can you get rid of loose skin without surgery?
Yes. Ultimately, there are a number of different ways to address loose skin, so it’s important to consult with a specialist, like those at Skin Technique, to find the best solution that works for your needs.
