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 Dermatological Clinical, we provide you with the most advanced skin tightening techniques to guarantee long term results.

Causes of Loose Skin

  • Age

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.

  • Weight loss

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

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

BOOK NOW

Pelleve

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

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.

Mesotherapy

The skin requires a wide variety of nutrients for continuous rejuvenation and production of connective tissue. Mesotherapy focuses on delivering the necessary nutrients directly into the affected areas. The nutrients used in Mesotherapy treatments include enzymes, minerals, vitamins, peptides, hormones, plant extracts, and amino acids, among other constituents. These nutrients are delivered directly into the skin via injections or microneedling.

Nonabrasive Laser resurfacing

Unlike abrasive laser therapy, fractional laser resurfacing is a non-ablative skin tightening treatment that provides ideal results with minimal downtime. This technique utilizes IR light, which is used to target deep layers of the skin (dermis) to stimulate the production of collagen. The collagen produced tightens the skin restoring a plump, resilient, and smooth skin.

To determine the treatment method(s) perfect for tightening your skin, our specialists perform a thorough examination of your skin during your appointment. The treatment options are then laid out for you and depending on your condition, preference, and the suggestion by your dermatologist, the one with the best results is picked out for you.

Loose skin is caused by the loss and reduced production of elastin and collagen. The skin tightening treatments offered at Lumiskins Clinic restore the production of collagen and elastin, resulting in a taut, plump, and smooth skin. Each method works differently and is preferred for different body parts and conditions. Contact us to learn more about our skin tightening procedures.

The procedures we offer are noninvasive or minimally-invasive. However, like any other treatment, they have minor side effects associated with them. These include:

  • Reddening of the skin
  • Slight inflammation
  • Tenderness of the skin
  • Mild pain

These side effects, however, diminish within a few hours or days after treatment, which means you can resume your normal life almost immediately after your procedure.

Yes, some skin tightening procedures are associated with slight pain. This is why we offer a numbing cream during each of our treatment procedures for a comfortable and pain-free session.

Skin tightening involves the stimulation of collagen production for a taut and smooth skin. This means that the body has to produce collagen and then tighten the skin, which takes time to occur. The time taken for results to be visible depends on the condition of your skin and treatment technique used. For example, the best results of Ultherapy treatment may take up to three months, but you get an immediate skin lift.

A skin tightening session takes an average of one hour. This time varies depending on your treatment method and the area being treated. You may require several of these treatment sessions to attain the desired results. For example, you may need one to five Ultherapy treatment sessions – spaced as required – for optimal results.
