Loose Skin Due To Loss of Elasticity

Loose Skin And Sagging Skin

Loose skin is caused by the loss of elasticity in our skin. As we age, our skin begins to lose elasticity causing our skin to sag or becoming loose. Factors such as sun or smoking can further exacerbate this problem. Fortunately, several cosmetic procedures are available to help fix loose skin.

How To Fix Loose Skin

Tried of loose sagging skin? Luckily, there are many options to help restore the elasticity of the skin.  As a common rule, they all involve building new collagen for the skin, in a healthy and natural fashion.

This involves no surgeries or invasive procedures.

Most techniques wake up the body’s own collagen production in a healthy fashion. The procedures are commonly performed on the face but can be used on other body parts, depending on the underlying problem.

Treatment Options For Loose Or Sagging Skin

There are several cosmetic procedures to fix loose skin due to loss of elasticity. These include the use of Sculptra, Fraxel, Thermage, and Ulthera.

We use Sculptra to fill in areas of laxity (or areas of loose skin) and hollows, while creating collagen.

Additionally, there are lasers such as Fraxel, which help in firming the skin and improving overall toning of the skin. Fraxel helps to lay down new collagen while shrinking pores and helping with surface discoloration.

Another treatment option is Thermage. Thermage applies radio-frequency to tighten tissue by stimulating collagen production through heat.

Finally, the latest addition to fight loose skin is the use of Ulthera.  Ulthera, uses sonic or sound waves to create deep heating that causes tightening of the underlying skin structures. By stimulating the body’s own collagen production, Ulthera helps in creating firming in the skin.

Skin laxity, sagging skin, and loss of firmness, are a complex problem. Careful evaluation is required to determine, which procedures can be used, for that individual.
