Sagging Skin

Disease, biological and lifestyle changes and environmental factors can all impact the health and the elasticity of your skin. Since sagging skin can have a significant impact on your appearance, it’s easy for this common concern to affect your self-confidence, but there are several potential solutions that don’t require you to undergo surgery.

Common Causes of Sagging Skin

Collagen and elastin are the proteins that are responsible for keeping your skin smooth and supple. Unfortunately, these proteins are gradually broken down over the years, leaving your skin with less support as time goes on.

Here are some of the most common reasons why you start producing less collagen and elastin, which results in sagging skin:

  1. Age. There are a lot of changes that take place within your body as you age and one of them is a loss of connective tissue. As this supportive network gets weaker, the skin that surrounds the tissue starts to sag.
  2. Weight Fluctuations. Whether you’ve recently lost weight after a pregnancy or because you made a lifestyle change, a significant weight fluctuation can create loose skin.
  3. Sun Damage. Sunscreen is one product that everyone should own and use on a daily basis. The sun can cause you to lose essential collagen at a rapid pace, which could make sagging skin a reality sooner than it needs to be.

Sagging Skin Treatment Options

While some of the factors that cause sagging skin are out of your control, this common concern can still be treated without surgery. Here are the treatment options that are available to you:

– Ultherapy
This advanced anti-ageing treatment uses ultrasound energy to tighten and lift the underlying structures of the skin, while stimulating the production of collagen at the same time. The ultrasound energy is able to penetrate the deep layers under the skin, resulting in long-lasting effects. Most Ultherapy treatments take less than an hour with only mild discomfort.

– Exilis Elite
Exilis Elite is a popular body contouring and skin tightening device that uses a combination of Monopolar Radiofrequency (RF) to target unwanted pockets of fat and tighten and smooth the skin. Following a few short sessions, patients can expect a firmer, more youthful appearance, all without the need for downtime. Several sessions will be necessary to achieve the desired result.

– Collagen Stimulators
To reverse the effects of volume loss, collagen stimulators can be used to stimulate the growth of collagen, which will naturally tighten and smooth out the skin over time. Several injections will be applied to the problem area but treatments are relatively quick and don’t require any downtime. At least two treatments will be required to start seeing the desired effects.

– Mesotherapy
While mesotherapy is primarily used to eliminate unwanted pockets of fat, the vitamins and minerals that are present in the injections will help tighten sagging skin. Treatments are quick to administer and a topical anaesthetic can be applied should you be concerned about discomfort. Multiple treatments will be required before you will see a significant difference to the affected area.

– PRP
Using the growth factors that are present in your own blood, a series of small injections are used to encourage healthy cellular activity to stimulate collagen and elastin production. Once the patient’s blood is withdrawn, it is placed in a centrifuge where the plasma can be separated from the rest of the blood. The growth factor-rich plasma is what’s injected into the problem area to treat sagging skin. PRP injections are ideal as a standalone treatment but can also be used in conjunction with other treatments to enhance their results.
