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
Non Surgical Skin Tightening uses radio frequencies to help reduce loose skin hanging around the neck area. The treatment stimulates collagen production which will tighten the skin. It is a 100% non-invasive treatment so no downtime or pain is experienced. Results can usually be seen after the first treatment and will continue to improve over the course of 8 – 10 sessions, which is what is recommended to get the best result.
