Saggy Skin? Here are the Best Treatments for Tightening

Loose or sagging skin affects all of us as we age due to a breakdown of proteins called elastin and collagen.

Environmental factors such sun exposure, pollution, stress, and smoking can all accelerate this process, but saggy skin can also be caused by rapid or significant weight loss. The stomach, thighs, knees, face, neck, chest, and upper arms are most susceptible to saggy skin.

Thankfully, there are several non-surgical treatments that can help tighten, plump and firm the skin. At Elite Body Contouring we use different technologies to help lift, tighten, and smooth the skin for people who have experienced a loss of skin elasticity. Our non-surgical skin tightening treatments for the face and body are simple and don’t require surgery or downtime. They work by using various techniques and targeted energy to heat the deeper layers of skin and stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. 

Depending on your skin type and your individual needs and goals, we can recommend which treatment below is best for you.

Non-Surgical Body Sculpting

LIPOcel Body Sculpting is a new and innovative non-invasive treatment that helps to both tighten the skin and reduce fat. It uses High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) and can be used on various parts of the body, including the arms, thighs, and stomach. If you’re looking for a 2-in-1 treatment that will simultaneously reduce stubborn fat and tighten saggy skin, this could be a good option for you.  

High Intensity Focused Ultrasound Body Skin Tightening

Concerned with loose skin on your body? The High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) Body Skin Tightening treatment uses advanced technology (ULTRAcel Q+) to heat the deep and superficial layers of the skin’s tissue (to about 65 degrees) to gradually tighten and tone so you have more youthful-looking skin. HIFU is a highly effective technique for skin laxity and unlike other popular skin tightening treatments, HIFU penetrates further down into the skin, targeting the subcutaneous tissue so results last longer.

Radio Frequency Body Skin Tightening

This popular treatment, which can target saggy skin on the stomach, knees, thighs, and upper arms, uses Radio Frequency (RF) energy to penetrate the skin’s layers. It selectively heats the tissue to help accelerate the production of new collagen and elastin fibres. Research shows that radio frequency can result in direct collagen contraction and immediate skin tightening of the treatment area. This, in turn, produces firmer, smoother, and younger-looking skin.

High Intensity Focused Ultrasound Non-Surgical Facelift

It’s no secret that the cheeks and neck are prone to sagging and loose skin. This is often due to increased sun exposure (photo-damage), which breaks down collagen and elastin over time, resulting in fine lines and wrinkles. Loose skin on the neck and around the eyes is also common as the skin is very thin and delicate. This treatment, which also uses HIFU, helps to rejuvenate, contour and tighten the skin on the face and neck. If you are looking for similar results to a traditional facelift but without the surgery, pain, or downtime, this could be the ideal treatment for you.

Radio Frequency Face Skin Tightening

A gradual loss of skin elasticity can lead to more fine lines and wrinkles, and a more aged complexion. At Elite Body Contouring we use the most advanced Radio Frequency (RF) Skin Tightening technology, PowerShape™, to ensure the best anti-ageing results for the face. This non-surgical treatment works the same as the Radio Frequency Body Skin Treatment by heating the skin’s tissue to boost production of new collagen. It’s clinically proven to firm, plump and lift the skin on the face, particularly around the jawline and jowls. It can also help improve the skin’s texture and tone, and smooth crow’s feet and laugh lines.
