Loose or Sagging Skin

The anti-aging conversation tends to focus on wrinkles and brown spots. But volume loss is just as much of an issue – and can end up leading to a wide range of signs of premature aging. Sagging skin or loose skin intensifies fine lines and wrinkles, alters the appearance of your facial features and makes you feel older than you are.

Those frustrated by loose neck skin, jowls, hooded eyelids and other areas of loose skin could benefit from noninvasive skin tightening treatments.

What causes sagging skin?

Volume loss is universal for aging skin. As the years pass, the tissues within our skin break down – including collagen and elastin. These connective tissues help hold our skin firmly in place. Aging collagen and elastin mean sagging, loose skin. This can take hold across the face and body, include the cheeks, neck, arms, buttocks and more.

Other causes include genetics and the amount of sun exposure to that area of skin.

Are surgical or nonsurgical treatments best for loose skin?

A surgical facelift is the most aggressive treatment option for sagging skin. But there are many areas in which a facelift falls short. It doesn’t actually address the root of the problem – it physically repositions the skin, but doesn’t address the aging collagen and elastin beneath. Facelifts also involve significant recovery time and investment.

With the development of safe, effective, energy-based skin tightening procedures, more and more patients are going the nonsurgical route.

Your skin tightening treatment options

  • Plaxel Plasma Pen – The Plaxel plasma pen is a true plasma system that lifts and tightens loose, crepey skin to improve fine lines, wrinkles and more. It is especially effective on the eyelids and undereyes, and is safe for delicate skin.
  • Venus Legacy – This (MP)2 technology (Multi-Polar Radio Frequency and Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields) mixes with the innovative VariPulse™ technology so that therapeutic heat energy can safely travel even deeper into the skin for better blood circulation, skin tightening, and plumped, glowing skin.
  • Silhouette InstaLift – This in-office procedure re-contours your mid-face and cheeks by gently lifting the deeper subdermal layers of your skin with absorbable sutures. The treatment is comfortable, requires only local anesthesia and typically takes 45 minutes.
  • Novathreads – NovaThreads® are small pre-loaded hypodermic needles, or microcannulas, containing polydioxanone material (PDO), an absorbable surgical suture. These dissolvable threads are inserted into the lower plane of your skin in specific configurations, lifting and tightening the skin.
