Top Skin Tightening Questions

What causes sagging skin?

Pregnancy is a major cause of loose skin as the skin has been stretched beyond its normal elasticity. Aging, extreme weight loss, genetics and long-term exposure to UV rays are also major factors in causing the loss of elasticity in skin. These factors can cause major damage to collagen fibres and reduce the number of fibroblasts (the cells that produce collagen fibres); and as a result, skin starts to sag. Unfortunately, age and genetics are factors which we cannot control. So, to tighten loose skin, we must encourage the production of new collagen to improve the skin’s elasticity and overall skin tone. The various treatment options available at Cosmos Clinic can effectively treat loose skin by way of assisting collagen production, or by removing the problematic skin all together.

Can diet and exercise help with sagging skin?

Keeping hydrated by drinking lots of water as well as a balanced diet (with minimal sugars) is a terrific way of maintaining good skin quality. Increasing muscle can also help to build a tight layer under the skin to reduce a sagging appearance. However, to accomplish any real, drastic change, technological intervention is required. This is usually in the form of skin rejuvenation treatments and surgery.

How do I know which approach is best for me?

It is important to determine what type of results you want and to have realistic expectations. Non-invasive options of any kind are for subtle changes. So, if you are looking for drastic changes, invasive options will provide results more in line with your expectations. A consultation is recommended to discuss all your questions and concerns, and to establish which treatment option will suit you best.

I have extreme amounts of loose skin. Will any of these treatments be effective?

It is important to have a doctor assess your troubled areas and the amount of skin there. It may be that a surgical approach is a better option for you. These include an Arm Lift, Thigh Lift, Tummy Tuck or Facelift. These procedures are performed under general anaesthesia. As with any surgical procedure, incision lines are required and will be noticeable. There are however, effective topical gels and creams on the market than can help the appearance and healing of scars. The benefits of removing excess skin however, generally outweigh this downside to surgical lifts

What areas can be treated with Vaser Skin Tightening?

Just about any area that needs skin tightening can be suitable for Vaser Skin Tightening. We find that Vaser Skin Tightening is extremely effective for sagging necks and fat around the chin and face, for mum’s who want to get their pre-baby tummy back and also for under the arms (Bat Wings). Vaser Skin Tightening uses ultrasound technology (similar to radio frequency) in order to create heat in the treatment area. This heat encourages collagen production; and therefore results in skin tightening in that area.

At which clinic can I undertake Skin Tightening?

Your initial Skin Tightening consultation and subsequent procedure can be undertaken at one of our cosmetic clinics in Australia. We have practices in Sydney, Canberra, Adelaide and the Gold Coast. We also treat many interstate and overseas patients each year at Cosmos Clinic.  Therefore, we have set procedures in place for those travelling to our clinics for treatment.
