To schedule a treatment consultation for your loose skin, call Serenity Rejuvenation Centers or book an appointment online today.
Loose skin may happen as you get older, specifically when your skin naturally loses the natural elastin that keeps it tight and the collagen that keeps it firm. These two proteins diminish with age, but other processes and circumstances can lead to accelerated skin loosening.
When skin gets looser, it also starts to sag. This leads to the development of certain large wrinkles and folds, as well as specific sagging areas like jowls or a turkey neck. No matter where you have loose skin, it can be an inconvenience and a source of insecurity. Loose skin can affect the fit of your clothes and can be somewhat heavy.
If you have loose skin, Serenity Rejuvenation Center offers multiple noninvasive treatment options that can tighten it with only a few short sessions. The team performs a brief exam and can recommend treatments during your consultation.
Your skin naturally loses its firmness and elasticity with time, but multiple factors make skin even looser than it would be otherwise.
A few factors that cause or accelerate skin loosening are:
It’s common to experience excessive loose skin after major weight loss. If you’ve gone through a personalized weight loss plan at Serenity Rejuvenation Center, the team can direct you to noninvasive skin tightening treatments and body contouring treatment options.
It’s up to you to decide whether or not to pursue treatment for loose skin. The team at Serenity Rejuvenation Center explains your options and helps you choose one that aligns with your goals.
Your options include:
Microneedling tightens your skin by helping it rebuild collagen and elastin. It does so by inducing tiny injuries in your skin, which initiates the healing process. Serenity Rejuvenation Center offers microneedling with Potenza™ radiofrequency microneedling.
Injectables won’t tighten skin per se, but they can help diminish the look of loose skin in a few ways. Kybella® removes a double chin, often worsened by loose skin, by targeting and eliminating fat cells in the area. Dermal fillers can restore lost volume in your face, and they can treat certain wrinkles attributed to loose skin like marionette lines.
Body sculpting procedures help reduce the look of loose skin by eliminating fat cells in the regions you decide to target. Serenity Rejuvenation Center offers body sculpting with CoolSculpting® and EmSculpt® Neo.
