Sagging skin or laxity is often one of the most common concerns amongst our patients.
Skin laxity can be due to a variety of causes including the normal aging processes or due to lifestyle factors such as weight loss and is often seen post-pregnancy. The best way to test for skin firmness is to gently pinch the skin – if it doesn’t bounce back quickly, there is evidence of skin laxity.
As part and parcel of the normal aging process, there is loss of fat pads in the face and reduction of collagen and elastin. Even bone loss occurs – all which lead to the breakdown of the ‘scaffolding’ of the skin. Visually, this presents as sagging or thin and crepey skin. The best outcomes are achieved when we combine multiple treatment modalities to address different layers of the skin.
To improve collagen and elastin, we recommend treatments such as Medical Grade Skin Needling (Dermapen), Skin Tyte II Skin Tightening, Halo PRO Laser Treatment and Skin Boosters. Book in for a consultation with one of our skin professionals to find out how we can help you achieve firmer, tighter skin.
