As we age, our collagen production slows, leading to a loss of volume and noticeably slackening skin – on the face and body.
Loose skin on the face results in a loss of firmness and can cause a ‘jowly’ appearance, while loose skin on the body can undermine even the best-kept, gym-honed physique. Whether tightening skin on the face or body, successful treatment relies on stimulating collagen at different depths of the skin, while targeting the muscles, fat layer and skin. Our multi-layered approach enables us to achieve excellent skin-firming results, and combines some or all of the following treatments, depending on a patient’s individual needs.
For slackening skin on the face and neck, Dr Kersh might use a combination of Ultherapy®, which stimulates the SMAS (Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System – the muscle lifted in face-lifting) and is proven to lift tissue around the eyes, mid-face and jowls, with BTL Exilis®, which delivers an instant tightening effect to the skin.
For loose skin on the body, medical technologies such as BTL Emsculpt® help to build muscle in the abdomen and glutes. A health assessment can also help to determine the need for vitamins, minerals and/or Hormonal Treatment to support collagen levels.
