One of the most dreaded changes to your skin as you age is skin laxity. As the skin loses collagen, elastin and other factors with age, it becomes thinner with less elasticity. Sagging jowls, nasolabial folds, bags under the eyes, sagging neck skin and many other undesirable changes occur as your skin ages. While you cannot stop the aging process, you can slow down skin laxity. At FEM Women’s Wellness, we offer minimally and non-invasive skin tightening (skin laxity) treatments at our facility in the Reno and Lake Tahoe, NV, area.
Did you know that your skin contains about 80% collagen? When collagen production slows down around the age of thirty, your skin starts to become thinner and less firm. Other factors such as sun damage, smoking and health issues can also contribute to skin laxity. As your skin ages, gravity, muscle movement and tissue atrophy can result in sagging skin.
There are many surgical procedures to remove loose or sagging skin, but it is not always necessary. There are non-surgical options that can stimulate collagen production and remodel the skin structure for tighter, youthful skin.
Minimally Invasive Skin Rejuvenation
If you have loose or sagging skin and want to look more like your younger self, consider using skin tightening with RF fractional microneedling. At FEM Women’s Wellness, we have the latest innovation for skin tightening treatments – Morpheus8 RF fractional skin treatment. This technology combines microneedling with RF thermal energy that is delivered deep in the skin. The heat and controlled wounds to the skin stimulate collagen strand repair and new collagen production. Over the weeks following treatment, the skin can become tighter and firmer. Lines and wrinkles diminish, and the tone and texture of the skin become more youthful.
You do not need plastic surgery to look years younger. If you are beginning to experience skin laxity on your face or body, come see us at FEM Women’s Wellness. We offer minimally invasive skin tightening treatments and body contouring with Morpheus8 treatments. Contact our Reno and Lake Tahoe, NV, clinic to schedule your skin tightening consultation.
