About Loose/Sagging Skin

Loose and sagging skin can lead to immense self-consciousness. When you’re young, your skin always stays upright, but the passage of time makes your skin tissues droop downwards, making you look sad, tired, or upset. But thanks to the miracles of modern medicine, we can effectively reverse the physiological processes that cause skin laxity, helping you restore facial youthfulness with skin tightening in Portland. Phoenix Skin and Laser provides cutting-edge treatments to reverse the signs of aging and enhance your youthful appearance.

Causes of Loose/ Sagging Skin

The loss of collagen and elastin is the primary reason for skin laxity and sagging skin tissues. Collagen is a fibrous protein that acts as skin glue — it holds your skin tissues upright against the force of gravity. When you’re young, your body produces a high volume of collagen fibers, so your skin always looks firm and voluminous. But as you grow older, your body’s ability to produce collagen is compromised yearly, leading to sagging and loose skin.

The gradual appearance of loose and sagging skin is usually catalyzed by several factors, such as genetics, pregnancy, sun exposure, and other environmental factors. But since the loss of collagen is the primary reason for sagging skin, most reliable anti-aging treatments focus on stimulating natural collagen production within your body. If your body can produce new collagen fibers, your skin will naturally regain its youthful firmness and texture.

Treatments for Loose/ Sagging Skin

Phoenix Skin and Laser performs a highly personalized consultation to identify your primary concerns and recommend the ideal skin tightening in Portland treatments. The cosmetic provider will carefully examine your facial skin, discuss your symptoms and goals, and perform a facial assessment to identify the ideal treatments. If you’re worried about loose and sagging skin, we may recommend one of two possible treatments — microneedling or RF microneedling.

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is one of the most effective procedures for loose and sagging skin. During microneedling, the cosmetic provider uses a specialized medical device to create thousands of micro-injuries on the skin’s surface, which activates the body’s innate healing processes. Your body responds to the micro-punctures by producing new collagen fibers, making your skin look smoother, softer, fuller, and tighter.

RF Microneedling

RF microneedling is an advanced version of the standard microneedling treatment. During RF microneedling, the cosmetic provider delivers radiofrequency waves deep within the skin while creating micro-punctures, catalyzing the body’s collagen production ability. The body produces a higher volume of collagen fibers within a shorter period, so you can experience even better results faster. Over time, your facial skin looks smoother, fuller, and more youthful.
