Many people are unhappy with their drooping skin. Whether you’ve observed your skin become less firm as you’ve aged or you’ve lost weight and your skin hasn’t rebounded as expected, sagging skin may make many individuals feel self-conscious. There are a variety of treatments available to help tighten the skin.
At Hans Place, we are experts in VASER Liposuction, and in 2008, our very own Dr. Mike Comins was the first in the United Kingdom to provide the groundbreaking Hi-Def VASER procedure. Many clients have inquired whether VASER Lipo may help tighten the skin and counteract sagging.
This article explains all you need to know about skin tightening and the VASER Lipo procedure.
What Causes Loose, Sagging Skin?
There are several causes for sagging skin on the face and other parts of the body, which can be a concern. A decrease in elastin and collagen in the subdermal layer is the primary cause of loose, sagging skin. As we age, the body stops creating as much collagen and elastin, causing this to occur.
Those who have lost a significant amount of weight or who have given birth frequently have lax skin. This is because the skin has been stretched and strains to return to its original state.
When the skin remains firm and youthful, it can easily return to its original position, but when this capacity diminishes, the skin will begin to droop. Jowls, chin, stomach, upper arms, throat, and eyelids are common places affected by drooping skin. This is typically the result of aging, sun damage, or lifestyle choices. Poor diet, smoking, and alcohol consumption can all diminish collagen and elastin levels in the body.
How is VASER liposuction performed?
VASER Liposuction is a widely used method for removing excess fat from the body. It can also act to some amount to tighten the skin, and many patients report a minor tightening effect after VASER Lipo or VASER Hi-Def.
This revolutionary therapy employs ultrasonic technology to destroy fat cells specifically and restructure the affected region. It may be used to treat big regions such as the thighs, flanks, and abdomen, as well as smaller, more sensitive areas such as the jowls, neck, and arms.
The VASER Lipo technique is performed in an operating room, although it is a small operation that does not need hospitalization or general anesthesia. The majority of patients may return home after an hour of treatment, and recovery time is low.
Before the therapy, a saline solution and local anesthetic are applied to the affected region. Small incisions are made around the affected region to numb the skin and constrict blood arteries. VASER Liposuction employs a tiny probe implanted beneath the skin to deliver strong sound energy that emulsifies and ruptures fat cells. Aspiration is then used to remove the liquefied fat, while suction cannulas are used to sculpt the region.
VASER Lipo is highly successful in removing fat cells from the body, and as a result, the skin can become firmer and more taut. Nevertheless, VASER Lipo alone is frequently insufficient to tighten drooping skin. For optimal results, we suggest combining VASER Liposuction with additional skin tightening procedures. If you have extreme skin laxity, VASER Lipo may not be an appropriate therapy, and you may be better off with an alternative skin tightening method.
The Top Skin-Tightening Therapies
At Hans Place, we provide a variety of minimally invasive procedures for sagging and slack skin. These can be used independently or in conjunction with VASER Lipo. The following are some of our most popular skin tightening treatments:
Renuvion is a revolutionary procedure that tightens the skin and underlying tissue, providing beautifully toned results without invasive surgery. During this treatment, a Renuvion pen is used with pinpoint accuracy to target extremely precise parts of the skin.
Using tiny incisions, the probe is placed subcutaneously into the skin. Then, helium-cooled radiofrequency radiation is applied. This energy compresses the subdermal collagen tissue to stimulate the synthesis of new collagen in the region. Renuvion produces an immediate firming impact, thus outcomes are immediate, but they continue to improve for up to a year following therapy.
Since collagen loss is the primary cause of drooping skin, any therapy that stimulates its synthesis in the body will have a firming impact.
ULTRAcel is another popular minimally invasive skin tightening procedure offered at Hans Place. Handheld devices are utilized to administer radiofrequency and high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) radiation to sagging regions during the operation.
ULTRAcel is an enhanced version of the well-known INTRAcel procedure, and it provides better face-lifting outcomes. Any part of the face or neck that needs tightening, firming, or lifting can be efficiently treated with ULTRAcel.
This therapy is not intended for huge regions, so if you have drooping skin on your stomach, legs, or arms, ULTRAcel may not be your best option.
Dermal Fillers are one of the most popular cosmetic treatments available today, and they are used to address a variety of skin issues. Dermal fillers are commonly associated with lip fillers and other improvements, but they may also be used to fight drooping skin in some regions.
When face tissue loss and decreased collagen synthesis produce drooping skin, dermal fillers can be utilized to plump and fill the region. The filler is placed under the skin using needles or cannulas, and depending on the location and your skin type, there are a variety of filler options to select from. Recovery is nearly instantaneous, and immediate benefits are seen.
