Concerns Research

Loose Skin

The issue of loose skin is a prevalent concern for numerous individuals, stemming from various factors. Aesthetically, loose skin can be visually displeasing, potentially triggering self-consciousness and embarrassment about one's appearance. Such sentiments may contribute to a negative body image, even among those who have achieved successful weight loss.

What Causes Loose Skin?

The main reason why loose skin occurs is due to a loss of skin elasticity. Skin elasticity refers to the ability of the skin to stretch and then return to its original shape. Young, healthy skin contains a lot of elastin and collagen fibers, giving way to good elasticity levels. However, as we age or undergo changes in our body, such as rapid weight loss, pregnancy, or hormonal changes, these fibers become damaged, and the skin can lose elasticity.

In the case of rapid weight gain and loss, for example, the skin may not be able to shrink to a new size, resulting in excess or loose skin. In addition, when we lose weight, some of the underlying fat helps keep the skin stretched and taut diminishes, and the skin has little structural padding to keep it firm. Other factors contributing to skin elasticity loss include genetics, sun damage, smoking, and poor nutrition. These factors can damage the collagen and elastin fibers in the skin, making them less firm and elastic over time.

How to Avoid Loose Skin
After Weight Loss?

While it may not be possible to completely avoid loose skin after weight loss or with aging, there are preventative steps you can take to help minimize its appearance, including:

  •     Losing weight gradually rather than rapidly

  •     Maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine

  •     Staying hydrated by drinking at least 8 glasses of water a day

  •     Avoiding smoking and excessive sun exposure

  •     Using moisturizers and sunscreen to keep your skin healthy and hydrated

  •     Treating the skin to collagen-stimulating procedures

Treatments For Loose Skin

At Luxe Nova, we offer two non-invasive treatments to improve the look of loose skin, Accent Prime and Opus Plasma.

Crystal Salt

Accent Prime

Accent Prime is the world’s most advanced body contouring and skin-tightening system. The dual capabilities of radiofrequency and ultrasound heating set it apart. In addition, the design features Alma’sAlma’s patented unipolar technology.

This technology offers three levels of penetrating depth (the epidermis, the dermis, and the hypodermis). In addition, unipolar technology allows for customized treatments tailored to a patient’s specific skin and body contouring goals. This technology allows practitioners an even greater spectrum of treatment options to customize treatments for optimal patient results.

Accent Prime is a non-invasive treatment that uses advanced ultrasound technology to tighten loose skin. The device delivers ultrasound waves into the skin, stimulating collagen production and skin tightening. Accent Prime can be used on various body areas, including the face, neck, arms, abdomen, legs, buttocks, and thighs.

During the treatment, a handheld device targets specific areas of loose skin. The device emits ultrasound waves that penetrate deep into the skin, heating the tissue and stimulating collagen production. This process helps to tighten and firm up loose skin over time, resulting in a smoother and more youthful appearance.

Opus Plasma

Opus Plasma by Alma Lasers is a cutting-edge technology revolutionizing the skin resurfacing industry for the face and body. It is the first and only unipolar radiofrequency treatment that can treat uneven skin tone, texture, stretch marks, scars, and skin laxity—the results from this fractional plasma treatment rival aggressive ablative CO2 lasers with minimal downtime. Opus Plasma can be used on the face, neck, and body.

Clients love Opus Plasma as a treatment for loose skin because it requires half the downtime compared to the lengthy recovery times of traditional ablative CO2 skin resurfacing treatments.

Opus Plasma is a non-surgical treatment that uses plasma technology to improve the appearance of loose skin. It is a minimally invasive treatment that creates tiny injuries in the skin using plasma energy, which stimulates the body’s natural healing response to produce new collagen and elastin fibers. This results in firmer, tighter, and smoother skin.

A handheld device delivers controlled plasma energy to the skin during the treatment.. The energy creates tiny microchannels in the skin, which triggers the body’s natural healing process. As the skin repairs itself, new collagen and elastin fibers are produced, which help to improve skin elasticity and firmness.
