Loose skin can appear on almost any area of the body, and one place that it often causes self-confidence issues and frustration is the chest. Loose skin on the chest can be the result of many different things, including weight loss, ageing and sun damage.
Anyone can experience loose skin on the chest, but it can be more prominent on men than women due to the lack of breast tissue. Ageing is one of the biggest causes of loose skin, and this is because collagen and elastin levels in the skin reduce with age. Collagen and elastin are both proteins in the body which help to keep skin looking and feeling youthful.
Sun damage also plays a part in creating loose skin as it has a significant impact on collagen. Rapid weight loss is another common reason behind loose skin on the chest, as the skin doesn’t always have enough elasticity to tighten to the new, slimmer body.
Loose Skin On Chest Treatments At Hans Place Practice
Whatever the cause of loose skin on the chest, our team at Hans Place Practice can recommend a treatment to leave skin tight and firm again. We recommend anyone thinking about treatment book in for a full skincare consultation to discuss the available options.
Renuvion is groundbreaking when it comes to cosmetic procedures, as it offers to instantly firm and tight skin after just one treatment. It works to tighten the skin and the tissue below to reduce loose skin on the chest. Exceptional precision is used to insert a Renuvion wand into the area subdermally. This wand emits a radiofrequency energy that is cooled by helium and contracts the subdermal tissue, encouraging new collagen production. This boosted collagen production can last up to a year after treatment, making the results progressive.
INTRAcel is a skin rejuvenation treatment that has been designed to target collagen production within the skin. It can be used to combat the signs of ageing, including loose skin on the chest. It works by combining micro-needling, radiofrequency technology and fractional treatments into one cosmetic procedure. After just one treatment, the skin will begin to produce more collagen and start to firm out loose skin.
