Why does skin loosen as you age?
Collagen and elastin, the compounds that provide the skin with its necessary ingredients to remain firm, start to reduce in production as you age. This leads to saggy, loose skin. Excess sun exposure can also cause the skin to thin over time.
Luckily, there are a variety of effective procedures to help prevent skin from sagging and to firm up existing loose skin.
Why does skin loosen as you age?
VoluDerm is an effective, non-invasive skin rejuvenation procedure. It combines radiofrequency with micro-needling techniques. During the process, fine micro pins penetrate the skin and activate the dermal layer. Radiofrequency is then delivered to the tissues in the underlayer of the skin. This results in the body producing new collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid, which work together to restore firmness and vibrancy.
The VoluDerm procedure is popular because it provides results without any recovery time. Results are often noticeable immediately and become even more pronounced as the skin repairs itself with the release of collagen and elastin.
Thermage is another non-invasive treatment that yields great results. This procedure improves skin texture by plumping sagging skin. It works by emphasizing your natural features, tightening areas like the jawline, and is especially effective on areas such as the eyelids.
Thermage uses radiofrequency technology to heat the deep, collagen-rich layers of the skin. The applied heat causes the water molecules to separate from the fibrous collagen, leading to immediate contraction and skin tightening. After several months, a secondary healing response continues as collagen is deposited, resulting in highly visible, lasting results.
Evolve effectively tightens skin on any body part, including areas such as the abdomen or arms. Using the Evolve Tite system, strategically placed applicators deliver volumetric heating to the subdermal layer of skin, promoting skin cell repair and renewal.
This procedure offers a painless, non-surgical way to address areas of concern on the body. It’s a popular option for those looking to tighten saggy skin after weight loss, pregnancy, or general aging.
