Skin Tightening Treatment

As the years go by, time takes its toll on our bodies and our skin is no exception. When it comes to our skin, the effects of aging are sometimes less than desirable. Age most often shows itself with skin laxity that leaves people embarrassed and frustrated. At Summit Skin & Vein Care, we understand how agonizing skin laxity can be. Our skincare experts provide useful information and effective skin tightening treatments through the use of the FDA-approved, clinically proven Thermage® for individuals suffering from a loss of collagen and skin elasticity.

Thermage Treatment for Sagging Skin

There are a number of options available when it comes to skin tightening, but Thermage is one of the most popular choices. This non-invasive treatment uses radiofrequency energy to heat the deep layers of skin, stimulating collagen production and resulting in firmer, smoother skin. The effects of Thermage are gradual, but can be long-lasting, and there is no downtime required after the treatment. At Summit Skin and Vein Care, our team of experts has extensive experience with Thermage and can help you achieve the best possible results. If you’re looking for a safe and effective way to tighten your skin, Thermage may be the right choice for you.

Areas We Treat for Lax or Sagging Skin:

At Summit Skin and Vein Care, we offer a variety of treatments to help patients achieve tighter, more youthful-looking skin. One of the most popular areas we treat is the face. The skin on the face is thinner and more delicate than the skin on other parts of the body, so it is more prone to laxity and sagging. In addition to the face, we also treat common problem areas like the neck, jowls, and under-eye bags. We tailor our treatments to each patient’s individual needs in order to ensure optimal results.

Common areas we treat for sagging skin:

  • Abdomen
  • Arms
  • Buttocks
  • Eyes-even eyelids
  • Face-including lips
  • Legs
  • Neck
  • Décolleté – the upper part of your torso exposed by a lower neckline

What Causes Skin Laxity?

Before treating lax skin, it is important to understand what causes this condition. Over time, the skin’s underlying structure of collagen and fat begins to break down, robbing our faces of their definition, youthful plumpness, and resilience. As we age, our skin loses its ability to renew itself as quickly as it once did, and the skin starts to droop and hang. This may also make your pores look larger as if they’ve been stretched out of shape.

There are two types of skin aging that can cause skin laxity; intrinsic and extrinsic. Intrinsic aging is the natural part of the aging process where we slow down the production of elastin and collagen. Extrinsic factors include sleeping positions, smoking, and repetitive facial expressions that can prematurely age your skin. See below for more factors that can lead to sagging skin.

Common Causes for Lax Skin:

  • Genetics
  • Weight change
  • Sun damage
  • Age
