Ever feel like you are walking around with too much skin? Well then you may have loose or excess skin. Loose/ excess skin is the extra skin that may be sagging anywhere on your body. This can be due to ageing, overexposure to sunlight and also after having lost a large amount of weight.
When you age your skin becomes more fragile and the collagen and elastin fibers that keep your skin’s strength and plumpness become weaker and lose their natural structure, therefore the skin begins to sag. Exposing your skin to sun light for long periods will also weaken your connective tissues and the skins cells also become damaged, this will result in your skin sagging. Losing weight is great when you want to be heathy and fit but when you lose a large amount of weight in a short period of time, you will have excess skin resulting in your skin sagging because the skin support structure which was the fat has been shed.
Treatment for loose skin does not necessarily have to be surgery. We at Glo Laser & Beauty can offer you a non-invasive treatment option that is also effective. Our trained therapists can recommend our Radio Frequency Skin Tightening treatment. This treatment uses heat to stimulate your skin to produce collagen and elastin fibers, therefore helping to tighten the loose skin. For homecare treatment they can recommend the Elastoderma oil from Lilian Terry, this oil can be used daily and is applied like a normal body lotion. It will help to repair the loose and stretched skin and also leave your skin feeling hydrated.
