Skin laxity, or loose skin, on the body can have various causes, including aging, weight loss, and pregnancy. In any of these cases, loss of collagen and elastin play an underlying role in skin laxity. Collagen is a protein that is critical to the structure of the skin, and elastin is a protein that helps the skin return to its natural position after being stretched. Elastin levels begin to decrease around the age of 18, and collagen levels begin to decline around the age of 25. Reduced levels of collagen and elastin contribute to the development of loose skin, wrinkled skin, and crepiness.
The most effective solutions for sagging skin are those in which collagen and elastin are stimulated and skin is tightened. Our expert team treats skin laxity with great outcomes using effective combinations of energy-based devices and non-invasive techniques.
One of the fastest growing aesthetic treatments in popularity, RF Microneedling is an effective treatment for tightening skin while improving the appearance of wrinkles and crepiness. Safe radio-frequency energy is delivered below the surface of the skin using ultra-fine needles, stimulating the production of collagen while improving skin quality.
While Ultherapy is known for its effective results on the face, it’s also FDA-approved for improving the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the décolletage. High-powered, focused ultrasound energy is strategically directed into collagen-rich layers of the skin, contracting tissue and triggering collagen production that results in long-lasting tightening.
