FIGHTING LOOSE AND
SAGGING SKIN WITH THERMAGE

As we age, our skin loses its tightness and elasticity and instead of hugging our shape closely, it starts to dangle in folds. And if we’ve been overweight and lost the weight, that extra bulk will have stretched the skin, again making it lose some elasticity.

Probably most of us have used a “skin toner” at some point. It’s a bit of a misnomer. Skin doesn’t “tone up”. It’s our muscles that tone up, when we exercise. By exercising a muscle, we enlarge it somewhat, and strengthen it, so that now it’s toned up.

When we’re young and slim, our skin is elastic enough to shrink and stretch with our changes in bulk, and it will stretch slightly to stay smooth over the slightly enlarged muscle. But as we age, our skin loses this ability, and once stretched, it stays that way and forms folds or jowls.

There are surgical ways to tighten skin. The excess is removed and what remains is stitched in its new position, tightly covering the tissue underneath. Some examples are a jowl lift, a necklift, and eyelift treatments. But all surgery brings risk. At Westside Aesthetics we prefer to use non-surgical methods for common conditions.
