Skin Laxity

Skin laxity, also known as sagging skin, is a common concern that occurs due to a loss of elasticity and collagen in the skin. This happens as we age. However, the process is accelerated with sun damage, smoking, and a poor diet. Many with rapid or drastic weight loss also suffer from saggins skin. To address skin laxity and improve skin firmness, there are several treatment options available:

1. Topical treatments
Use skincare products containing ingredients like retinoids, peptides, and antioxidants to promote collagen production and improve skin elasticity.

2. Laser treatments
Laser therapy can stimulate collagen production and tighten the skin, reducing the appearance of sagging.

3. Radiofrequency treatments
Radiofrequency devices deliver heat energy to the deeper layers of the skin, stimulating collagen production and tightening loose skin. These body contouring treatments are most effective for sagging due to weight loss and can be done on most any area of the body.

4. Microneedling
This procedure involves creating tiny punctures in the skin to stimulate collagen production and improve skin firmness. Microneedling with RF is even more effective as it adds heat to the microneedling procedure creating a tightening effect. This can be done on the face or the body.

5. Injectable treatments
Dermal fillers and collagen-stimulating injections can help restore volume and improve skin tightness in areas of sagging.

And as with any treatment, maintaining a healthy lifestyle, including a balanced diet, regular exercise, and adequate hydration, can also contribute to overall skin health and firmness. Results from any treatment are longer lasting and more successful with dietary changes and medical-grade skincare.
