What Is Sagging Skin?

Sagging skin refers to areas of loose skin anywhere on the body. This concern tends to be most noticeable on the face, the legs, and around the abdomen, where it can make a person look older, more tired, or out of shape.

What Are Some of the Most Undesirable Locations for Skin Laxity?

The areas where people most often wish to treat their sagging skin include:

  • The face – To get rid of fine lines and wrinkles like crows’ feet and frown lines.
  • The legs – To treat cellulite.
  • The abdomen – To look more toned, especially after weight loss.

What Are the Causes?

The substances that keep our skin soft, firm, and supple when we are younger include collagen and elastin. The fibers in these substances allow our skin to snap back into shape after being stretched out by our muscles. When we get older, the production of collagen and elastin decreases, meaning skin cannot snap back as easily, resulting in sagging skin. The amount of sagging you have can depend on factors like age, genetics, and sun exposure.

How Do We Treat Sagging Skin at Esslinger Medical and Aesthetics?

At Esslinger Medical and Aesthetics, we have procedures designed to stimulate new collagen production so that you can get some of that elasticity back. Our TempSure® Envi and TempSure® Firm procedures utilize special handpieces to deliver targeted radiofrequency energy to the areas where you wish to firm and tighten skin. The correct temperature and time allow the skin to tighten and collagen production to increase without harming tissue. The great thing about these procedures is that they are non-invasive, not particularly painful, and require no real recovery time. We also offer Potenza™ RF Microneedling for all of your radiofrequency skin treatment needs. Request a consultation today to find out which treatment is right for you.
