What causes loose skin?

Aging and long-term exposure to ultraviolet radiation from sunlight causes the skin to age. Lax skin with loss of elasticity is one of the most visible signs of photoaging. Loose and sagging skin can add years to your appearance and can happen anywhere on the body, including the face, neck, chin, jowls, stomach, arms, buttocks, or thighs.

How can I treat loose skin?

Tighten your skin with a powerful skin tightening treatment. Dr. Kesty offers several skin tightening treatments to help reverse the signs of aging:

  • Dilute Radiesse
  • Radiofrequency Microneedling
  • Collagen heating procedures to tighten the deep collagen in the skin
  • Fractional Non-Ablative Lasers
  • Laser Resurfacing

Not all skin laxity is created equally. The choice of skin tightening procedures for the body depends on the underlying cause, the anatomic location, and patient preference in terms of downtime and invasiveness of the procedure.

How do I get started with a skin tightening procedure?

Dr. Kesty will be happy to discuss skin tightening treatment with you. Please feel free to call for a private consultation. A combination approach is sometimes ideal to improve the appearance of skin laxity. Non-invasive and minimally invasive techniques are often combined with topical skin care regimens at St. Petersburg Skin and Laser to achieve the aesthetic goals of our patients regarding skin tightening.
