15 Nov Our Top 5 Non-Surgical Treatments For Treating Skin Laxity
Intrinsic and extrinsic factors contribute to the development of skin laxity. The natural ageing process causes a reduction of collagen and elastin, which leads to a loss of firmness, with genetics playing a role in how quickly this occurs. Sun exposure, smoking and poor diet can accelerate crepey skin by damaging collagen fibres, reducing blood flow to the skin and causing weight fluctuations that affect structural support, respectively.
Regardless of how your skin loses its elasticity, there are many non-surgical treatments that can help to turn back the clock. Receiving a skin analysis during your consultation at The Lovely Clinic is the best way to determine which procedures will be most effective for your unique skin.
5 Treatments That Combat Skin Laxity
This non-invasive treatment harnesses the power of high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) and radiofrequency (RF) to firm sagging skin. ULTRAcel treatments target the superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS), causing controlled thermal trauma that stimulates the body’s natural healing response without causing any damage to the surface of the skin. Collagen and elastin production increases, tightening the skin with results improving over time.
Thread Lifts use dissolvable sutures to lift the skin. Fine threads made from poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) and polycaprolactone (PCL) pull sagging tissue into a more youthful position with bidirectional barbs preventing thread migration. After approximately 12-18 months, your body will naturally break down the threads, however, increased collagen production at suture sites continues to fight skin laxity. Read our previous blog to explore the differences between APTOS and Nordyx Threads.
Introducing the world’s first liquid polycaprolactone (PCL) injectable! GOURI works on two levels: firstly, the gel distributes evenly within the skin, providing a subtle volumising effect across the entire face; secondly, increased collagen synthesis enhances results, reducing the appearance of fine lines and skin laxity over time. With only 4 injection points required to treat the face, patient discomfort is kept to a minimum and bruising is limited.
HArmonyCa™ comprises high molecular weight, cross-linked hyaluronic acid and calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHa) – a powerful combination that combats skin laxity for up to two years. HA adds instant volume to features lacking definition, allowing the mid to lower face to be reimagined. CaHa microspheres activate fibroblast cells, which stimulate collagen production. This bolsters anti-ageing results week-on-week as rising collagen levels help the skin to regain structural support.
No two faces are exactly the same, so neither are two Non-Surgical Facelifts! During a consultation, your practitioner will use advanced 3D imaging to determine your needs before creating a completely bespoke package for you. Treatments may include ULTRAcel, Dermal Fillers, Botox®, Mesotherapy, Carboxytherapy or Chemical Peels. Whatever the combination, you can be sure that your practitioner has used their experience and expertise to create the most effective treatment plan for your skin.
