|Latest @ VivaToday’s email is all about loose or sagging skin: How to prevent it, and what you can do to improve its elasticity.|
UV light degrades collagen in the skin and decreases synthesis of new collagen, damaging both the epidermis and the lower dermal layer. The skin becomes thinner and less elastic.
Exposed skin develops an uneven colour and texture resembling chicken skin. This is termed poikiloderma and is frequently found on the side of the neck. Extended exposure to sunlight also leads to dilated and broken blood vessels on the face and pigmentation, or age spots.
Avoid photoaging and reduce the likelihood of developing skin cancers with good preventative care.
The answer? Cover up. Use a good spf sunblock, clothing, a hat and sunglasses or shade.
Age, UV exposure and weight loss can leave you with lax skin. This can be most noticeable along the jawline and neck.
A course of Bipolar Radio Frequency can dramatically help to shrink and tighten the skin.
Radio frequency generates heat in the dermal layers of the skin. This results in shrinkage of the collagen fibres – a bit like putting a woolly jumper into hot water.
The heat also stimulates new collagen synthesis. Over the following weeks, the skin becomes denser with improved elasticity.
This example shows the result after just a single session of radio frequency.
