What is Skin Laxity
Skin laxity is something everyone will face at some point in their life due to the natural aging process. Besides aging, there are other factors that can play a part in skin laxity, such as intrinsic and extrinsic factors, genetics, diet, lifestyle, sun exposure, stress and smoking. Sometimes following a healthy diet and workout regimen isn’t enough to target laxity in the skin. There are two vital components to the skin’s structure that will affect laxity; collagen and elastin. As we age we begin to lose these two key components and our skin begins to lose elasticity, resulting in loose or sagging skin.
Collagen is the main structural protein found in the skin and other connective tissues throughout the body. Think of collagen as the “building blocks” of the skin. Elastin is a protein that coils and recoils like a spring within the elastic fibers of connective tissue, accounting for the elasticity of the skin and other structures of the body. The skin depends on both collagen and elastin to remain tight to our face and body. Collagen and elastin are found in the deeper layer of the skin called the dermis, which is located right above the fatty layer which lies beneath the skin.
As we age, our bodies begin to stop producing collagen and elastin. Other outside factors are responsible for the destruction of these two key components in the skin; keep in mind the difference between destruction and production. The aging process can be rushed by the things we are doing in our day to day lives, affecting the appearance and health of our skin.
Intrinsic factors occur internally in our bodies and these factors are sometimes out of our control. As we age our skin and body begins to decline over time – genetics play a huge role in this aspect. The production of collagen and elastin slows down, resulting in changes to the skin. At 20 years of age, your body begins to produce 1% less collagen per year and the skin becomes more fragile and thinner. Other internal factors, such as sweat and oil glands, begin to diminish in overall function over the years. Our sebaceous glands (oil glands) are responsible for keeping the skin naturally hydrated and supple. As the production of those glands lessens the skin becomes drier, resulting in fine lines/wrinkles.
Extrinsic aging occurs from environmental factors including free radicals, toxins, pollutants and UV rays. In our day to day lives, we are exposed to high levels of free radicals which damage the skin and body. Antioxidants are key to preventing free radical damage so incorporating them into your diet and skin care regimen is essential.
An antioxidant is a substance that inhibits oxidation or reactions promoted by oxygen, peroxides or free radicals, thus preventing damage to the body. A few key antioxidants are vitamin E, vitamin C, vitamin A (retinol) and green tea. Incorporating these antioxidants into your diet and skin care regimen is a great way to reduce the visible signs of aging. Along with diet and lifestyle, protecting your skin from UV rays is a must. Sun exposure accounts for about 85% of skin aging so wearing a sunscreen with a SPF of 30 or higher needs to become part of your daily routine. Extrinsic aging causes the appearance of freckles, sun spots, excessive loss of collagen and elastin, formation of precancerous lesions as well as skin cancer. The appearance of an uneven skin tone, dryness, roughness and fine lines and wrinkles are also factors of extrinsic aging. The best thing you can do for your skin is wear a sunscreen every single day.
Boosting your skin’s strength and resilience involves restoring your collagen and elastin levels. To effectively increase this production, we can utilise a range of non-surgical treatments that trigger fibroblast activity for skin tightening.
The Ultraformer 3 device by Classys is the most effective skin tightening device available on the market, using high intensity focused ultrasound to deliver unbeatable results for your face and body without going under the knife. What makes the Ultraformer 3 special is that it uses MMFU (micro macro focused ultrasound) technology at temperatures of 65-75°C.
This method of using HIFU causes micro-coagulation and subcutaneous fat micro-reduction at one of 7 depths beneath the skin dependant on area being treated. The vast majority of depths which can be chosen therefore means the Ultraformer 3 Skin tightening device is effective at treating even the most delicate areas of the skin, such as around the eyes.
Results from treatment are immediate, but noticeable, continuous improvements for the following 3 to 6 months, our what our patients love the most. Patients can experience up to 6mm of lift to the eyebrow area, making it one of the most effective treatments available on the market.
Ultraformer 3 is capable of treating a number of different skin conditions which means you may be a candidate for this treatment without even realising it. If you’re noticing any signs of ageing or loose sagging skin, this is the treatment for you. By tightening the skin across the face or body, we can help eliminate skin folds, fine lines and wrinkles and decrease skin laxity. This leaves you with firmer, more lifted contours and skin.
Treatments usually last as little as 30 minutes and require no downtime because it’s non-invasive. Patients may notice some redness to the treated area, whether that’s the face or body, however, this goes quickly.
Depending on the laxity of you skin you may need up to three treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
Although results can last up to two years we usually recommend getting a treatment once a year.
Soft Thread Lift
The soft thread lift is considered to be the non-surgical solution to a facelift. Biodegradable threads elevate the skin and create a lifting effect. The treatment simultaneously stimulates collagen production, providing a further support structure for the skin. It is a popular treatment for lifting the lower part of the face but can also effectively work for ageing eyes.
At Harley Street Injectables, our highly-experienced, qualified and certified Doctors or nurses will perform your procedure.
The process begins with a thorough consultation, where we will discuss your aesthetic concerns and devise a unique thread-lift plan. The soft thread lift requires a local anaesthesia which allows for a faster recovery time and carries less risks than general anaesthesia. We carry out the operation in our clinic theatre, which offers convenience and has the highest standards of hygiene and patient safety.
Temporary markings will indicate the lifting direction and entrance site of the threads.
Bio directional PDO threads are the first threads that we use and insert through a cannula or micro-needle. Following this, we may also use uni-directional threads to treat the neck, jawline, marionette and nasolabial folds. They are beneficial for creating a more natural contouring effect. The nurse or Doctor will then remove the cannula, and the threads remain in place.
The threads will form a semi-permanent support structure for the face with the lifting effect at a peak around six months later. The results last approximately 18 months but vary from patient to patient.
The procedure usually takes around 45-60 minutes, depending on the size of the area and the number of threads.
An ageing face can manifest itself in several ways; sagging, wrinkles, loss of volume are some indications we might expect to see. The elasticity and collagen depletion can change the shape of the face and its support structure. Some of the earlier signs (after changes in skin texture) are lower facial sagging, premature jowls and brow ptosis.
A soft thread lift will introduce PDO threads through a cannula. The skin grips to the barbs or cones on the thread. The biodegradable threads form a support structure that work to lift, contour and tighten sagging skin through stimulating the body’s natural regenerative process.
By provoking the body’s natural healing response, the procedure promotes the growth of new collagen which surround the filaments, giving the skin a rejuvenated appearance, that progressively enhances over a year.
Profhilo is a hyaluronic based injectable that can treat skin laxity, boost and hydrate the skin and remodel ageing and sagging tissue. As the remodelling effects happen over time, patients usually require 2-3 treatments for optimal results.
您有望在 2-3 次治疗后看到皮肤重塑。
