Fighting loose sagging skin
As we age, our skin loses its tightness and elasticity and instead of hugging our shape closely, it starts to dangle in folds. And if we’ve been overweight and lost the weight, that extra bulk will have stretched the skin, again making it lose some elasticity.
Probably most of us have used a “skin toner” at some point. It’s a bit of a misnomer. Skin doesn’t “tone up”. It’s our muscles that tone up, when we exercise. By exercising a muscle, we enlarge it somewhat, and strengthen it, so that now it’s toned up.
When we’re young and slim, our skin is elastic enough to shrink and stretch with our changes in bulk, and it will stretch slightly to stay smooth over the slightly enlarged muscle. But as we age, our skin loses this ability, and once stretched, it stays that way and forms folds or jowls.
There are surgical ways to tighten skin. The excess is removed and what remains is stitched in its new position, tightly covering the tissue underneath. Some examples are a jowl lift, a necklift, and eyelift treatments. But all surgery brings risk. At Glo Med Spa & Wellness, we prefer to use non-surgical methods.
How Venus Versa Helps Treat Loose Skin?
Venus Versa’s combination of Multi-Polar Radio Frequency (RF) and Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields (PEMF) uses a complex algorithm to deliver homogeneous energy and volumetric heating to multiple tissue depths, allowing for quick and safe buildup of heat and easy maintenance of therapeutic temperature throughout the treatment. RF heats and directly stimulates fibroblasts, while PEMF is known to promote angiogenesis and induce fibroblast proliferation through release of the growth factor FGF-2, resulting in increased collagen synthesis and tightening of skin.
Depending on how large an area you want to have treated, it can be done in just a few minutes, or perhaps an hour or so. There are no stitches, no swelling and no downtime. You can pop over to Glo Med Spa & Wellness on your lunch hour to have it done and return to work immediately afterwards.
