Battling Sun and Gravity

What causes this?

Sun exposure is the culprit behind most skin laxity (If only we’d known to stay out of the sun or been more diligent with sunscreen!). Loose or sagging skin, known as skin laxity, is found most often on the face (jowls and hollow cheeks), arms, stomach, thighs and buttocks. Sun damage, genetic factors and environmental exposure all contribute to the loss of collagen and elastin, which provide skin support, and keep the effects of gravity at bay.

Treatment Options

There are many alternatives for replacing and restoring skin volume and elasticity without surgery or anesthesia. Several technolies and techniques are available to provide a ‘non-surgical facelift’ as a solution to sagging skin:

  • Pearl Laser Resurfacing laser
  • Titan Skin Tightening IPL (intense pulsed light)
  • Venus Legacy
  • Dermal fillers
  • Laser Facial

LaserMedica offers a variety of professionally administered laser therapies as well as dermal fillers and tightening serums to combat sagging skin. You can browse some of our skin treatment products here.
