Skin Sagging & Skin Laxity

Skin Sagging & Skin Laxity

As we age, the collagen and elastin fibers in our skin start to break down, leading to sagging and laxity. Additionally, factors such as sun exposure, smoking, and weight fluctuations can contribute to skin laxity. Fortunately, there are several treatments available to help tighten and firm the skin.

Popular non-invasive treatments for skin sagging are radiofrequency (RF), high intensity frequency ultrasound (HIFU), carboxy therapy and plasma skin tightening. These non-invasive treatments use different modalities to stimulate collagen production and tighten the skin. These treatments are painless and require no downtime. 

For those who prefer a more direct approach, there are surgical options such as facelifts and neck lifts. These procedures involve removing excess skin and tightening the underlying muscles to create a more youthful and lifted appearance. However, they do require a longer recovery period and carry a higher risk of complications.

For those who prefer a more direct approach, another option is injectable medical products, such as hyaluronic acid dermal fillers and collagen stimulators. These injectables can be used to add volume to areas of the face that have lost volume and support, such as the cheeks and temples, and can stimulate new collagen production which is unmatched by other treatments. This can help to lift and tighten the skin for a more youthful appearance.

Ultimately, the best treatment for skin sagging and laxity will depend on your individual needs and goals. It’s important to consult with our qualified skincare professionals to determine the best course of action for you.
