As you get older, your body stops producing enough new collagen to maintain taut, supple skin. Over time, this can cause your skin to sag. Skin laxity (or skin looseness) is nothing to be ashamed of. It’s just one of those things that tends to happen with age. But just because it occurs naturally doesn’t mean there’s nothing you can do to look and feel like your best self again.
These treatments vary in terms of technology and techniques used to administer them, but they all have at least one thing in common—they all boost collagen production, which helps support smooth, glowing, firm, and healthy-looking skin.
Let’s take a look at a few of those treatments!
Many patients looking for a skin laxity treatment have lost a significant amount of weight only to discover their skin isn’t snapping back like it used to. Without the support of adipose fat (or enough muscle definition), loose skin may droop, fold, or hang looser than you’re accustomed to.
PHYSIQ is a body contouring treatment that can burn fat, tone muscle, and tighten skin. It uses SDM (super luminescent diode matrix) technology to deliver targeted heat to adipose tissue and deep into the layers of your skin, and it uses electrical muscle stimulation to stimulate powerful muscle contractions that result in increased muscle mass over time.
For patients looking for a treatment that targets fat, muscle, and loose skin, PHYSIQ can be an excellent solution for meeting their goals.
Deep Laser Resurfacing
For patients who are able to take 7 or more days of downtime and 2 to 3 hours for a treatment session, Deep Laser Resurfacing can be a wonderful opportunity for your skin to start fresh.
This customizable treatment can transform deep wrinkles, scarring, loose skin, and rough textured skin, helping you look as youthful as you feel. It does this by removing the outer layers of dead and damaged skin and by stimulating cell turnover and collagen production.
After completing the recommended number of treatment sessions, your Deep Laser Resurfacing results can last for years with the right maintenance and skincare.
There’s a reason Ultherapy is such a popular skin laxity treatment. This 60- to 90-minute treatment uses micro-focused ultrasound energy to lift and tighten loose skin on the neck, chin, brow, and décolletage, and it won’t require you to take any downtime.
By turning up your natural collagen production, Ultherapy can lift mild to moderate sagging skin, smooth wrinkles and fine lines, and rejuvenate crepey skin, too.
Microneedling RF is also extremely popular with our patients. It remodels the skin using a combination of microneedling and radiofrequency to enhance its effectiveness.
The micro-wounds caused by the device’s tiny needles stimulate a healing response in the treatment area, and the radiofrequency generates heat that helps target layers of skin deeper than the length of the microneedles.
