Saggy skin can occur on the face, arms, legs, stomach, and neck, among other areas. It can be frustrating as it takes away your natural appeal, and it can even lead to low self-esteem and confidence. The good thing is, your looks can be restored through skin tightening.
Skin tightening involves noninvasive or minimally-invasive procedures done to counter loose or saggy skin. Skin tightening procedures aim to restore your skin’s tone and smooth texture.
At Lumiskins, we provide you with the most advanced skin tightening techniques to guarantee long term results.
Causes Of Loose Skin
Connective tissues maintain our skin’s elasticity, resilience, and tone. However, with age, the production of collagen and elastin (connective tissues) reduces. This makes the skin loose and wrinkled as its elasticity and strength are reduced. In addition to this, the underlying muscles become weak, making the skin less taut (for example, facial muscles).
Exposure to Sunlight
Sun exposure is one of the primary causes of loose skin, particularly premature skin sagging. While it’s fun to enjoy the sun and to get that perfect body tanning, the UV rays tend to penetrate your skin, causing damage to the connective tissue. With continued exposure to the sun, your skin becomes loose and wrinkled as the connective tissues continue to break down.
If you lose a lot of weight over a short period, either through exercise and dieting or through surgery, you may be left with excess skin that sags. This can be attributed to the fact that your skin grows/stretches as you gain weight, but when you lose weight, it remains too stretched out for the snapback effect to occur.
Smoking produces toxins that affect the skin in many ways. It’s one of the main factors attributed to premature aging of the skin. The toxins produced during smoking affect the delivery of oxygen and vital nutrients required to replenish the skin for a healthy, smooth, and well-toned skin. This causes the skin to lose its elasticity, become dry, and wrinkled.
Skin Tightening Procedures
Pelleve is a skin tightening procedure that uses radiofrequency energy to heat the skin. By heating the skin, Pelleve stimulates the production of collagen. This procedure is noninvasive, and it tends to target the upper layers of the skin. For ideal results, the treatment is utilized in combination with other treatments, including microneedling, IPL, and even Ultherapy.
Ultherapy is a noninvasive skin tightening procedure that utilizes ultrasound energy to stimulate the production of collagen. Ultherapy targets even the deeper layers of the skin (Dermis). This means that collagen will be produced throughout all the layers of the skin resulting in stronger, healthier, and smoother skin. This skin tightening technique is perfect if you require deep lifts.
