How it works

What Causes Skin Laxity?

Skin laxity/looseness/sagging is an issue that affects us all at some stage in our lives.  This is a major concern for everyone wishing to maintain their youthful appearance for as long as possible.  Skin laxity is a natural part of the ageing process and is caused by both intrinsic and extrinsic factors which we will explain further.  Collagen and elastin are two vital ingredients of the skin that are responsible for maintaining the structure and integrity of the skin. Unfortunately, as we age the production of these two vital ingredients begins to decline, resulting in a loss of elasticity and sagging of the skin.

Intrinsic factors are factors that occur naturally in our bodies over time and are out of our control. The production of collagen and elastin slows down as we age.  After the age of 20, our bodies produce 1% less collagen each year resulting in a loss of structural integrity of the skin.  The sebaceous glands or oil glands, responsible for keeping our skin moist, are also believed to decline in function as we age. Genetics is also known to have an important role in ageing.

Extrinsic factors are factors that occur outside our bodies.  These factors include toxins, free radicals, UV light exposure and pollutants.  By incorporating antioxidants into our diets and skincare regime, we are able to help reduce the signs of ageing.  Sun exposure is thought to be responsible for 85% of skin ageing.  It is important to “slip slop, slap” as part of your daily routine.

The signs of ageing skin may include, dryness, uneven skin tone, roughness and fine lines, wrinkles as well as skin laxity/skin looseness, sagging skin.

What are the treatment options for skin laxity at ACM?

  1. Nu Era Tight - RF treatment
  2. Ultraformer III - HiFi treatment
  3. Venus Viva - Fractional RF
  4. Plasma Pen - specifically for Non Surgical Blepharoplasty

Option 1 - How does NuEra Tight help with skin laxity?

NuEra Tight helps with skin laxity by utilizing advanced radiofrequency (RF) technology to heat the deeper layers of the skin. This controlled heating stimulates collagen production and improves skin elasticity. The RF energy penetrates the skin, causing immediate collagen contraction and initiating a healing response that leads to the formation of new collagen fibers over time.

This process effectively tightens loose skin, reduces sagging, and enhances overall skin texture. NuEra Tight treatments are customizable, allowing for precise targeting of specific areas, ensuring optimal results for each patient. The procedure is non-invasive, with minimal discomfort and no downtime.

Option 2 - How does Ultrafromer III help with skin laxity?

Ultraformer III helps with skin laxity by using high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) to target deep layers of the skin. This non-invasive technology delivers focused ultrasound energy to specific depths, causing thermal coagulation points that stimulate collagen production and remodeling. The process tightens and lifts sagging skin by inducing a natural regenerative response, leading to firmer, more elastic skin over time. Ultraformer III effectively treats various areas, including the face, neck, and body, providing noticeable improvements in skin tightness and texture. With minimal discomfort and no downtime, patients can enjoy long-lasting, natural-looking results from this advanced skin tightening treatment.

Option 3 - How does Venus Viva MD help with skin laxity?

Venus Viva MD helps with skin laxity by utilizing NanoFractional Radio Frequency (RF) and SmartScan technology. This advanced system delivers RF energy through tiny pins, creating microdermal wounds that stimulate the body’s natural healing process. This results in increased collagen production and improved skin elasticity. The treatment targets deeper skin layers without significantly affecting the surface, ensuring minimal discomfort and downtime. Venus Viva MD is highly customizable, allowing precise treatment of specific areas with varying levels of skin laxity. Over time, patients experience firmer, smoother, and more youthful-looking skin, making it an effective solution for reducing sagging and improving skin texture.

Option 4 - Non Surgical Blepharoplasty using Plasma Pen

Non-surgical blepharoplasty using a plasma pen is a minimally invasive procedure that targets sagging skin and wrinkles around the eyes. The plasma pen emits controlled bursts of plasma energy, creating tiny dots on the skin's surface. This process stimulates collagen production and tightens the skin, resulting in reduced hooding, puffiness, and fine lines.

The treatment is precise and customizable, allowing for targeted correction of specific areas without surgery or incisions. Patients experience minimal discomfort and downtime, with visible improvements in eyelid appearance and overall rejuvenation. Non-surgical blepharoplasty with a plasma pen offers natural-looking results for a refreshed, youthful look.

What areas can be treated?

Our skin tightening treatment can be used anywhere on the body and is the best non-surgical solution to sagging, drooping and wrinkling areas of the face and body. The most common areas include:

  • Periorbital area

RF skin tightening and plasma treatments can be used around the eyes to decrease skin laxity, creating a mild to moderate enhancement in the tightness of eyelid skin.

  • Forehead and brow line

The treatments can elevate the brow line, tighten the skin to pull back the eyebrows, and gives similar results to a surgical brow lift. Fine lines and wrinkles around the brows and forehead are also smoothed out, delivering youthful results.

  • Cheeks, jowls, and nasolabial folds

Sagging skin around the cheek area, including the jowls, is tightened to slim and enhance the facial contours. The nasolabial folds, often called smile or laugh lines, can also be tightened, lifted, and smoothed. Researchers of RF skin tightening find this area often achieves the most dramatic results.

  • Neck

The neck area can be treated on lower energy frequencies than other areas, as the skin is thinner. Mild to moderate skin laxity and any wrinkles will be tightened and smoothed.

  • Abdomen, thighs, and buttocks

Body contouring of the abdomen, thighs, and buttocks can be effectively conducted on these areas to smooth and tighten the skin, reducing the appearance of cellulite. Stubborn fat deposits in these areas can also be lessened. Our skin tightening treatments are particularly beneficial for women experiencing skin laxity post-pregnancy.

  • Arms

Excess, drooping skin is particularly noticeable and a common issue for many individuals. The skin can be tightened in this area over multiple treatments for a visible improvement.

  • Knees

Sagging skin around the knee can be tightened and smoothed over, but more caution is required when treating this area as the skin is much thinner and fewer sebaceous glands present.
