The Causes of Loose Skin
The main cause of loose skin is through ageing, a process that we can not avoid. As we begin to age, our body naturally produces less collagen and elastin, both crucial proteins of the body which keep the skin tight and firm. Without these proteins, our tissues can no longer be supported by our skin, leaving it to begin sagging.
Contributing factors to the fat pockets found on the upper arms are rapid weight loss and genetics. While losing weight quickly, your skin doesn’t have enough time to regenerate the elastin found in the skin, and now that there is less tissue to keep it full, it begins to sag due to the gravitational pull.
The Collagen Thread Lift for Loose Skin ment
The Collagen Thread Lift is especially effective for loose skin. Its natural-looking lifting abilities, combined with its intense rejuvenation properties that derive from collagen renewal, are able to achieve a tight, firm and smooth physique to the skin.
A Collagen Thread Lift uses smooth barbs that are inserted into the dermis where they begin to reposition the tissues found in the underlayer of the skin. During this process, fat cells are broken down and released out of the body naturally. Now that the skin has less tissue to support in that area, it can begin to take back its original form with the help from the threads.
During a Collagen Thread Lift, a clinician will insert the medical-grade threads into the dermis of the skin at an anchor point. The threads’ barbs then begin to reposition the tissues in which they are attached to while also relaxing the tendons and muscles by being protein-based. This process causes trauma to the surrounding areas which the body automatically signals to heal.
The blood flow is then improved on in the treated area before the healing begins. The body’s natural healing abilities start with producing new fibroblast cells which then encourage collagen renewal. Once new collagen cells are active, over the next several months, they are banked by the fibroblasts so that they can continue their efforts to rejuvenate the skin and its tightness.
