Sagging Skin

 

Causes

Collagen and elastin are proteins in the body that keep skin smooth and free of wrinkles – the hallmarks of healthy and youthful-looking skin. Unfortunately, these proteins are broken down over time by things like ageing, damage from the sun, and exposure to toxins in the air. As these proteins weaken, we notice more wrinkles, frown lines, and sagging skin. Loose or saggy skin around the face, neck, and body parts such as the arms, stomach, thighs are changes that you’ll observe.

Our Recommended Treatments

Thermage®

  • Targets: Sagging skin with volume loss in the chest, arms, thighs and tummy
  • Treatment: Thermage® uses a non-invasive, radio-frequency (RF) procedure to stimulate collagen production. As a result, the skin is tightened, smoothened and contoured for a younger looking appearance
  • Method: Radio-frequency (RF) cosmetic procedure
  • Downtime: Lunchtime procedure
  • Frequency: 12-16 months

Accent Prime

  • Targets: Sagging, loose parts on the body
  • Treatment: Accent Prime by Alma uses combined technologies to eliminate excess fat and loose skin, thus visibly improving the shape and contours of the body. The synergy of ultrasound and RF technologies achieves superior results to those of either technology on its own. Cold ultrasound shear waves selectively destroy fat cells while the unipolar radiofrequency (RF) accelerates their metabolism for fast lymphatic drainage. The application of RF heat energy following fat destruction induces a volumetric contraction effect, tightening the skin and improving its texture while also building new collagen.
  • Method: Radiofrequency (RF) cosmetic procedure
  • Downtime: -
  • Frequency: Once per week, 3 – 4 sessions

With its innovative technology, Silhouette Soft enables us to re-tighten sagging skin on body parts, for immediate, refreshed and natural looking results. The sutures are resorbable, hence disappearing overtime. Silhouette Soft offers a unique dual action, by repositioning the sagged tissue and by stimulating the collagen production, for continued improvement over time.
