Sagging of Skin
WHAT CAUSES SAGGING OF THE SKIN?
Sagging of skin is a common part of the natural aging process.
As you age, your skin loses collagen and elastin, which are proteins that give your skin strength and elasticity.
Other factors that may contribute to sagging skin include:
1. Exposure to UV radiation from the sun
4. Rapid weight loss
5. Poor diet and lack of exercise
6. Dehydration and lack of moisture
7. Certain medical conditions and medications
Sagging skin may also occur as a result of the loss of facial volume, due to a loss of fat in the face.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Methods we use for Skin Rejuvenation:

- Fotona Starwalker
- Fotona TimeWalker 4D
Laser skin rejuvenation is a procedure that uses a laser to heat the deeper layers of the skin and stimulate collagen production. Collagen is a protein that gives skin its structure and elasticity.
By increasing collagen, laser skin rejuvenation can improve the appearance of wrinkles, scars, sun damage, and other skin conditions. Laser skin rejuvenation is different from laser skin resurfacing, which removes the outer layers of the skin and causes more side effects.
- Nordlys Candela IPL
IPL stands for intense pulsed light, a type of light therapy that can help improve the appearance of various skin conditions. IPL works by emitting multiple wavelengths of light that heat and destroy damaged skin cells or hair follicles.
The body then removes the damaged tissue naturally, leaving behind smoother and more even skin. IPL can treat wrinkles, spots, scars, spider veins, and unwanted hair on different parts of the body.
- Chemical Peels
A chemical peel is a skin rejuvenation treatment that uses a chemical solution to remove the damaged outer layers of the skin. The new skin is smoother, less wrinkled, and more radiant. Chemical peels can treat various skin conditions, such as acne, scars, sun damage, and aging signs. Chemical peels vary in strength and depth, depending on the type of chemical used and the desired results.
Facials are a type of skin care treatment that can help with skin rejuvenation. They involve cleansing, exfoliating, massaging, and applying various products to the face. Facials can improve blood circulation, remove dead skin cells, unclog pores, hydrate the skin, and reduce signs of aging.
Facials can also relax the facial muscles and improve the mood of the person receiving them.
- Medical Products
Medical skin products treat skin rejuvenation by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, two proteins that are essential for maintaining the elasticity and firmness of the skin. Collagen and elastin also help repair the damage caused by aging, sun exposure, pollution, and other factors. Medical skin products may contain ingredients such as retinoids, peptides, antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, and growth factors that target different aspects of skin aging and rejuvenation.
The treatments can make the skin look smoother, plumper, and more rejuvenated.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING THE TREATMENT?
During laser treatment for sagging skin, one can typically expect the following:
1. The area being treated will be cleaned.
2. The laser device will be applied to the skin, emitting a beam of light energy that heats up the skin tissue.
3. The heat from the laser causes collagen fibers in the skin to contract and stimulate the production of new collagen, which helps to tighten and firm the skin.
4. Depending on the type of laser used, there may be mild discomfort or a sensation of heat during the treatment.
AFTER THE TREATMENT
After laser treatment to treat sagging skin, one can typically expect some mild swelling and redness in the treated area. The skin may also feel slightly tender or sensitive.
This is normal and usually subsides within a few days. The treated area may also feel slightly tighter, and the skin may appear smoother and more youthful over time as collagen production increases. It is essential to follow the post-treatment instructions given by the somatologist to minimize any discomfort or potential complications.
HOW MANY SESSIONS
The number of laser sessions required to treat sagging skin can vary depending on various factors, such as the severity of the condition, the type of laser used, and the individual’s skin type.
