Keeping the body happy and healthy is an ongoing process, and it is only normal to experience changes over time. Loose skin on the back can be one of these changes and results in sagging skin around the back of the body. This is a very common symptom for both men and women and is caused by a combination of different reasons.
Elastin and collagen are both proteins that are produced by the body to help keep the skin firm and wrinkle-free. These proteins can be broken down by a range of things including sun damage and ageing. Age causes the body to produce less collagen, which leads to wrinkles and loose skin on the back. Collagen is also decreased by direct exposure to UV rays from the sun, meaning that too much time in the sun can lead to loose skin on the back.
Another major contributing factor to loose skin on the back is long term use of poorly fitted bras. Furthermore,anyone who has lost a large amount of weight rapidly is likely to experience loose skin on various areas of the body. This is because the skin might not have the elasticity to tighten to the new smaller frame.
Loose Skin On Back Treatments At Hans Place Practice
At Hans Place Practice we have a selection of treatments to help treat loose skin on the back;
This innovative cosmetic treatment can provide skin and soft tissue toning and tightening results without the need for invasive surgery. Renuvion uses groundbreaking technology to apply radiofrequency energy to the required areas, such as the back. This energy works to contract the subdermal collagen tissue which boosts collagen production. Renuvion provides an instant firming effect leaving loose skin on the back instantly tighter.
If loose skin on the back is also accompanied by excess fat, then VASER Lipo can be used alongside Renuvion to remove the fatty tissue. VASER Lipo uses ultrasound technology to break up fatty tissue and emulsify it into a liquid. This liquified at is then removed using an aspiration process, and the back is sculpted using specialist cannulas. Combined with Renuvion, VASER Lipo is an excellent option for treating loose skin on the back.
