Skin Tightening Q & A

Why is my skin looser than it once was?

Your body goes through a wide range of changes as you age, and your skin is no exception. Several factors can contribute to loose or sagging skin. While this might be a normal part of growing older, that doesn’t mean you have to accept loose and sagging skin as inevitable. 

One of the biggest factors in sagging skin is collagen loss. As the years go by you lose a significant amount of collagen, which serves to soften your facial contours and keep your skin smooth and plump. 

Once those cells are gone your skin lacks the support it once had and begins to fall into crepe-like textures, lines, and wrinkles. 

Sun damage can also change the elasticity of your skin over time. That can make it hard for your skin to adapt to changes in weight or facial contouring. 

Weight loss (including after pregnancy) is another prime cause of loose and sagging skin. When your fat cells shrink, less pressure is placed on your skin. Those changes can make you look older than your years. 

What can be done to treat loose or sagging skin?

Skin tightening treatments use heat to prompt your body’s natural healing response. At Star Body, two different approaches are used for skin tightening for the face and body. 

ThermaLift

ThermaLift uses radiofrequency waves to create heat in the deeper layers of your skin. Your body then begins producing new cells to repair those damaged by the heat. Collagen and elastin are created, which serve to smooth your skin and improve its elasticity. Your skin looks smoother, tighter, and firmer.

UltraLift

This treatment uses ultrasound to heat the deeper layers of tissue and promote new cellular growth. This approach can also address darkened or puffy skin around your eyes, enlarged pores, and acne. 

What can I do to extend the results of skin tightening?

Once you see the effects of your skin tightening treatment you’ll want to do whatever you can to extend those results. While nothing will stop the aging process, there are steps you can take to make the most of your skin tightening treatments.

If you’re a smoker, the best thing you can do for your skin and your overall health is to find a smoking cessation program that works for you. Smoking is terrible for your circulation and healing and makes you age at an accelerated pace. 

Improving your diet can also be a powerful tool in keeping your skin looking and feeling its best. When your body has the nutrients it needs to thrive, the results really show. Consider adding supplements to ensure you’re getting the right levels of vitamins and minerals. 

Embracing a great skincare routine is another way to keep your skin in good shape after any aesthetic treatment. Be sure to include a high-quality sunscreen, and wear it daily to protect your skin from damaging ultraviolet rays.
