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:
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.
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.
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 Once the patient’s blood is withdrawn, it is placed in a centrifuge where the plasma can be separated from the rest of the blood.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.
