Increased skin laxity is the result of environmental factors, routine stress and the loosening of elastic fibers, including collagen, in the skin. As skin fibers break down, the effects of gravity pulling the skin downward become more and more obvious. In addition to altering appearance, skin laxity can also be a nuisance for patients experiencing it.
Skin Laxity Treatments
There are several treatment options available for responding to skin laxity:
- Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing
Understandably, patients seeking treatment have been inconvenienced by their loose skin in a number of ways including overall appearance, comfort, and confidence. Dermatologists provide skin laxity treatments routinely and help patients achieve desired results.
Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing
Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing is a procedure that involves promoting healing to improve youthfulness by administering tiny wounds that require the surface of the skin to heal and regenerate in order to fix wrinkles and tighten skin laxity appearance.
Radiesse is a long-lasting injection treatment option performed by a dermatologist. Used as a filler to erase lines and add volume to loose skin, fillers work by delivering immediate, noticeable improvement by lifting and diminishing wrinkles. Skin is made fuller beneath the skin, and Radiesse effectively helps skin laxity to continue improving by acting as "scaffolding" under loose skin, which stimulates and promotes collagen growth.
Sculptra is also an injection treatment option performed by a dermatologist. Patients are treated for up to four injection sessions that are typically scheduled in three-week intervals. Sculptra sessions help to improve skin laxity by tightening and decreasing fold contours and wrinkles throughout the face.
Consulting with a dermatologist is an ideal way of ultimately improving skin laxity and enjoying improved, beautiful, professional results. Procedures such as Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing, Radiesse and Sculptra have been created for cosmetic and practical results and are both an affordable and intelligent solutions for addressing skin laxity.
