The signs of aging are inevitable, but that doesn’t mean you have to let them affect your life. If sagging skin is making you self-conscious and those daily creams aren’t cutting it, our team is here to help. Our skin can develop wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin as we age. While these skin issues may be common, they can still be a source of self-consciousness for many of us. Loose skin is one of the most common issues we treat here at Elite Medi Spa. If you’ve been wondering how to get rid of sagging skin, our team of professionals offers treatments to give you great results in our Bend office.
What Causes Skin to Sag?
Before we explore the treatment options we offer at Elite Medi Spa, it’s helpful to know what causes sagging skin in the first place. Collagen and elastin are the key factors in firm, youthful skin. Collagen acts as the foundation for our skin, keeping it firm and sculpted. Elastin gives the skin flexibility, allowing it to stretch and shrink. As we age, the natural production of these two elements slows down, causing the skin to sag.
Volume loss can also cause sagging skin. Soft tissue contributes to the full appearance of our skin. As we age, our soft tissues thin, resulting in volume loss, wrinkles, and folds. When you have a procedure like a facelift without restoring the lost volume, your results may look unnatural. Volume loss is most common in the cheeks, brow, and lips, giving the face a square appearance.
Solutions for Sagging Skin
If you’ve exhausted your efforts on creams and supplements but aren’t quite ready for facelift surgery, we offer various treatments to meet you in the middle. Now that we’ve explained what causes sagging skin let’s talk about how we treat it in our Bend office.
This procedure is a non-surgical way to rejuvenate your face and neck and subtly reduce sagging skin. The NovaThread Lift can address sagging skin and help fight the signs of aging. The threads provide immediate support so that you can see results right away. However, the maximum results will be visible in about two months.
NovaThreads are sutures made from a substance called PDO that is biocompatible and safe for the body to absorb. The threads stay in place for about four to six months before they dissolve, but you can see treatment results for up to one year.
Getting NovaThreads placed is a quick and easy process. Your Elite Medi Spa provider will numb the area before inserting small needles that are pre-loaded with threads into the target area. The tiny sutures will remain when we remove the needles to keep your skin pulled tight.
Your body will absorb these threads and subtly lift and tighten your skin. The NovaThread Lift also stimulates collagen production by provoking your body’s natural healing response. As we mentioned earlier, without collagen, your skin loses elasticity and will start to sag.
After a NovaThread Lift, your body will continuously target the treated areas to stimulate collagen and keep your skin looking firm. The process takes about 30 to 45 minutes, and you’re free to return to your routine after your appointment.
This is one of the latest treatments we offer to rejuvenate your skin and treat the signs of aging. PiXel8-RF Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that combines radiofrequency and microneedling to restore sagging skin with little to no downtime.
PiXel8-RF Microneedling has many benefits, including reducing wrinkles, minimizing pore size, improving the appearance of crepey skin, and improving tone and texture. Your Elite Medi Spa professional will administer radiofrequency energy deep into your skin to stimulate collagen and elastin production, while microneedling triggers the body’s response to repair damaged skin.
This modern treatment is safe for every skin type, so there is no risk of thermal damage. The radiofrequency energy also reduces the risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation in darker skin types. That means you’re less likely to have dark spots in the areas we treat with PiXel8-RF Microneedling.
We’ll customize your treatment plan based on your specific goals and the areas you want to treat. This makes it possible to use PiXel8-RF Microneedling on sensitive areas including under the eyes, cheeks, and forehead.
This treatment usually takes between 20 minutes to an hour, depending on the area we’re targeting. You’ll start to see results after your first appointment, but we typically recommend at least three sessions to reach your aesthetic goals.
