There are many reasons that cause the skin to sag, the most common form of sagging skin is ageing. As we age we often wonder why our skin loses that soft, plump and youthful look. The reason is because with age comes the loss of collagen and elastin which is your skins supportive connective tissue. In addition to this, facial muscles can also weaken with age which takes its toll.
Unfortunately gravity also plays it’s part in causing the skin to sag down further. Sun exposure plays a big roll as the powerful rays break down collagen and elastin leading to sagging of the skin and wrinkles. Then there is weight loss, losing large amounts of weight over a short period of time can cause the skin to sag, we see this most often as the main reason for loose skin in younger clients.
Tripolar Radio Frequency
Radio frequency more commonly known as RF therapy, is a very effective treatment to tighten the skin.
RF machines produce radio waves which heat up the collagen in the skin (dermis and subcutaneous fat layer) to contract the existing collagen and stimulate new collagen production. The process has evolved over recent years and in its most advanced form now is called Tri Polar, it is the next stage on from Bi Polar. Much like a TV going from standard HD to Ultra 4K. There are currently 2 platforms using this technology, we use the Lipofirm Pro as it also features something called Dynamic Muscle Activation which enables us to contour, lift, tighten and tone with much greater effect as we are working on the skin and the muscle.
This results in a more smoother, tighter, lifted and youth full appearance. It can be used on the face, neck, abdomen, arms, buttocks, and legs.
This treatment can be combined with Micro needling (Nano Pore) to ensure an even greater result. Micro needling works by resurfacing the top layer of your skin through small titanium needles (again not painful). https://clinic33.co.uk/treatments/mesotherapy-micro-needling/
