How Does Skin Laxity Develop?
Skin laxity occurs in people as they get older due to the natural aging process. As you age, the collagen and elastin levels in your body deplete, resulting in sagging or drooping skin in certain areas.
Collagen, a structural protein, is responsible for keeping your skin plump and hydrated, and elastin helps your skin retain elasticity. In some cases, genetics, stress, over-exposure to the sun, weight fluctuations, and smoking can contribute to the severity of skin laxity.
Whatever the reason for your skin laxity, the good news is Inspired Med Spa can offer you some innovative cosmetic treatments to address the problem.
Skin Laxity Treatments
At Inspired Med Spa, we offer three skin laxity treatments that are effective at stimulating collagen and elastin production to result in a more youthful skin appearance:
Laser Genesis involves the use of near-infrared laser technology to heat the dermal skin layer gently. It’s a soothing non-invasive treatment and is very effective at stimulating collagen and elastin production.
Titan Skin Tightening
Titan Skin Tightening is arguably the best treatment for combating skin laxity. It’s another laser-based solution and uses infrared light energy to heat deep skin tissue structures, resulting in tighter skin and new collagen production.
The other skin laxity treatment we offer at Inspired Med Spa is microneedling. It’s a collagen induction therapy that creates controlled micro-perforations on the skin, enabling the body to kick-start its natural repair mechanisms and produce new collagen and elastin.
We also offer PRP (platelet-rich plasma) microneedling, where plasma from a sample of your body’s own blood gets used to enhance the healing process and supercharge collagen and elastin production.
