WHAT IS IT?
Loose/ excess skin is the additional skin that can sag anywhere on your body. This can be causedby various factors includingoverexposure to sunlight, ageing or after having lost a large amount of weight. As you age your skin becomes more delicate and the elastin and collagen fibres that keep your skin’s rigidity and plumpness can become frail and lose their natural structure, resulting in the skin beginning to sag.
Exposing your skin to excess sun light for too long will also weaken the connective tissues leaving the skin damaged, this may result in your skin sagging. Losing weight is always a great achievement when you want to get healthy and fit but if a person loses a large amount of weight in a short period of time, there will be excess skin resulting due to the skin having stretched and now losing its support structure underneath.
Non-Surgical Skin Tightening
This is a radio frequency treatment which will help reduce excess skin by stimulating your skin in the treated area. More collagen will be produced during the treatment which will tighten the skin. This is a non-invasive treatment so there will be no downtime and it is pain-free. This treatment can be done every 2 weeks, for best results we recommend a course of 8-10 sessions. Results can be seen after the first treatment and will continue to improve, even up to 6 months after your treatments.
