Loose, sagging skin can make it difficult to feel great about your appearance. Advanced skin tightening treatments can help and are available from Alisa Seeberger, FNP-C, of Seeberger Dermatology in Alamogordo, New Mexico. Convenient booking options include online scheduling and phone calls during normal business hours.
The primary cause of loose or sagging skin is lost collagen. This is a substance your body produces naturally, and when you’re young, your face is padded with a thick layer of collagen. Over time you lose much of that natural padding, and your skin begins to fall and sag into lines, folds, and wrinkles.
Some people also develop loose or sagging skin after losing a significant amount of weight. Your body can adapt to create a degree of natural skin tightening, but there are limits.
Seeberger Dermatology uses the Morpheus8® system by Inmode®, an industry leader in medical aesthetics. This treatment platform uses fractional radiofrequency energy to create heat in the deeper layers of your skin.
Your body responds by creating new collagen, which smooths and plumps the skin, reducing the appearance of sagging and loose, crepey skin.
Morpheus8 offers three different treatment tips, each designed for use in specific areas of the face or body. Smaller tips are perfect for the upper lip or area around your eyes, while a larger tip works wonders on the forehead, jawline, or folds that run from the sides of your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds).
There is even a tip for improving the appearance of scarring on larger areas of skin. This form of skin tightening is a great fit for people with many different skin types, including darker skin tones that usually aren’t a good fit for skin tightening.
Once you see your results, you’ll want to do all you can to preserve those improvements. Wearing high-quality sunscreen daily is important and keeps your skin looking its best.
You can also embrace a solid skincare routine to keep your skin properly cleansed and hydrated. While no product can create a significant tightening effect, properly cared-for skin enhances the results of your skin tightening treatment.
It’s also important to avoid gaining significant weight after skin tightening. Doing so will cause your skin to stretch to accommodate the additional facial volume, altering your results.
