Best Treatment for Skin Laxity (Face or Body)

Loose skin, or skin laxity, can occur anywhere on the body including the face, jawline, neck, abdomen, and hands. It results when there is a breakdown of collagen and elastin – the key components that retain the skin’s firmness and resiliency. On the body, skin laxity may be noticed after pregnancy or weight fluctuations. Age-related facial skin laxity tends to occur in the lower face, as one begins to notice sagging or “jowls”, and loss of jawline definition.

Breakdown of collagen and elastin in the skin is caused by: sun exposure, diet, lifestyle, smoking, natural aging, or genetics. In the aging face there is also shrinking and shifting of the fat pads, and a decrease in bone density, which causes the overlying skin to descend.

APT Medical Aesthetics uses the best treatment for skin laxity, with several non-surgical options: Skin Tyte II™. Both treatments deliver heat deep into the skin to stimulate collagen remodeling, leading to gradual firming and tightening of the treated area. Results vary depending on the degree of skin laxity, underlying skin tone, and lifestyle.

Frequently Asked Questions

It is likely you are a perfect candidate for skin tightening treatment. Not only will the treatment improve existing laxity, but it will slow skin aging by increasing collagen production in the skin.

Absolutely. Skin tightening treatments can be done on any areas of the body that have skin laxity including: face, neck, abdomen, arms, and knees.

Skin tightening is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment, therefore it is not a substitute for a face lift. It is best suited for early signs of skin laxity, and for slowing skin aging. If you are looking for firmer, tighter skin, or want to delay surgery, then skin tightening would be a suitable option. If you are looking to remove lax skin for an obvious “lift”, then you may want to consider a surgical option. To discover your best option, please schedule a complimentary consultation with one of our skin experts.

Skin becomes firmer and tighter due to increased collagen production. This process takes time, therefore the full results of your treatment will be most noticeable four to six months later. You may not even notice the changes until you receive a compliment about how “rested” or “refreshed” you look!

There is no downtime after skin tightening. You will be able to return to your normal activities immediately after your treatment.
