Sagging skin is of major concern for many individuals in today’s world. In fact, it’s one of the number one reasons people come in for treatment at DermaTouch RN.
What causes sagging skin?
As we age, the skin’s natural ability to produce collagen and elastin decreases. Collagen and elastin are the skin’s supportive connective tissue that helps the skin look plump and bounce back when it’s pulled or stretched. Facial muscles can also weaken over time, which can make the skin loosen, as well.
Sun exposure can also cause premature aging and sagging of the skin.
When individuals lose large amounts of weight, it can also cause the skin to sag.
How can sagging skin be reduced without surgery?
Treatments, such as Ultherapy and SkinTyte, can reduce the appearance of sagging skin without surgery.
What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy Uplifting Ultrasound is the first non-invasive, FDA-cleared treatment to lift the chin, brow, and neck and to improve wrinkles and lines on the chest area. For three years in a row, the treatment earned a Best of Beauty Award by NewBeauty editors and readers and has a 90% patient satisfaction rating in clinical studies.
How does Ultherapy work?
Ultherapy delivers focused ultrasound energy clear down to the skin’s foundational layer, without disturbing the surface layer of the skin. The energy can work as deep as that of a surgeon during a face-lift to stimulate collagen production and lift and tighten the skin. More than one treatment may be necessary for optimal results.
Additionally, for someone with collagen depletion, Ultherapy can take pictures all the way to the bone, which means that a picture taken at the time of treatment can be compared to another taken four to six months down the road to prove it’s working and stimulating collagen.
What is SkinTyte?
Sciton’s SkinTyte is safe for all skin types and can treat any area of the body giving skin a firmer and more youthful appearance with the use of infrared energy.
How does SkinTyte work?
By passing a 15 X 45 mm sapphire cooled hand piece over the treatment area with rapid, gentle pulses of infrared light, it promotes contraction and partial soft tissue coagulation of deep dermis collagen while protecting the epidermis. There is no need for topical anesthetic, no down time, and no excessive redness.
