Why Do We Have Saggy Skin?

Saggy Skin is lax skin or skin with increased laxity. Saggy Skin is a natural consequence of ageing and the result of our genetics and environmental exposures, such as UV light exposure, smoking, etc. As you age, your body does not produce the same amount of collagen or elastin in your skin and the quality produced is not as good. Collagen and elastin provide firmness and elasticity to your skin, giving you a more youthful, tighter appearance. You can tell if you have Saggy Skin if it does not snap back to its smooth, flat position after you gently pinch it. You can also tell by gently pulling at your skin around your mouth to see how stretchy it is.

How is Saggy Skin Treated by Dr. Jodie in Melbourne?

Fortunately, Saggy Skin can be treated in a multitude of ways.

Prevention is always better than cure. Dr. Jodie encourages all her clients to lead a healthy lifestyle, which includes protection from UV exposure and not smoking. Sunscreen should be applied multiple times a day and adequate protective outerwear (including a hat, sunglasses, and clothing) should be worn to minimise exposure.

Within her anti-ageing armoury, Dr. Jodie has a range of injectable treatments and devices to assist with skin tightening. These include Skin Boosters, Biostimulators, Skin Bio Remodelling Injections, Laser Genesis and Scarlet S Radio Frequency Microneedling.

The Scarlet S Radio Frequency Microneedling Device

Ultimately, the most powerful skin tightening will be achieved with the Scarlet S Radio Frequency Microneedling device. Your entire face, neck and décolletage, and even different parts of your body, can be treated for more extensive improvements in skin texture and tautness. It combines the power of radio frequency energy and microneedling to create micro-channels of 'trauma' that trigger the body to turnover existing skin with new skin and collagen and elastin. And the best part? There is very little recovery time involved. All staff at the Dr. Jodie clinic, including Dr. Jodie herself, have undergone this procedure and could return to work the following day. You may experience some mild skin redness for 1-2 days, which is coverable, and a barely visible 'grid-like' pattern for 1-2 weeks (at worse), which most of us would not even notice. For your best results, serial treatments are recommended. At the Dr. Jodie clinic, for optimal skin tightening we would suggest a minimum of 3-4 treatments spaced approximately 6-8 weeks apart. Added benefits include skin smoothing, with softening fine lines and wrinkles, as well as pore minimisation and improvements in acne scarring, especially pitted scarring.

Laser Genesis

Laser Genesis is a no-downtime, non-invasive laser treatment for skin firming and tightening. It acts to heat the upper layers of the skin, causing tissue 'damage', that stimulates your body's natural renewal processes and the production of collagen and elastin. This ultimately firms your skin, but also improves textural irregularities such as fine lines, open pores, and acne scars. Laser Genesis also targets the fine blood vessels and broken facial capillaries to minimise facial redness and facial flushing. Laser Genesis is your true 'lunch time facial', as you can get on with your day without disrupting your social calendar.

Skin Boosters, Biostimulators, Skin Bio Remodelling Agents

The more traditional Skin Boosters and Biostimulators, as well as the newer Skin Bio Remodelling Injection, all help to improve skin laxity and firm up your skin. These treatments are available as injectable gels, injectable solutions (liquids) and monothreads and all encourage your body to produce more of the important building blocks for tighter, more elastic skin. They tend to be most beneficial for those who are old enough to see signs of ageing, but young enough to still be able to produce collagen and elastin. Dr. Jodie believes the ideal candidate tends to range between their early 30s to late 50s. Arguably such treatments may still play a preventative role for younger clients, especially Skin Boosters, and even the most mature clients are still capable of some skin tightening and improvements in skin quality, although often more aggressive treatments are required. Dr. Jodie can help you decide which treatment is best for your skin requirements, as this can be a difficult decision to negotiate on your own.

Let’s not forget that Skin Care also plays a significant role in skin health. A comprehensive Skin Care regime can ensure your skin is more hydrated, smoother, firmer, with better elasticity. Good skin care always works in unison with ‘in clinic’ treatments to help maintain your results.
