Skin laxity is a problem that may occur for several reasons. As we age, it is normal for the skin to lose elasticity in the face and neck, which leads to drooping, sagging skin as well as wrinkles. Loose skin may also be caused by damage over time, such as frequent sun exposure.
Dr. Ransom offers several nonsurgical skin tightening options for those who wish to reduce skin laxity such as jowls or “turkey neck.” These procedures are highly effective and have reduced downtime compared to surgical methods. If wrinkles or skin sagging are not yet severe enough to warrant surgeries such as facelifts or neck lifts, you may consider one of the following procedures:
SculpSure allows patients to permanently remove stubborn body fat without surgery through the body and below the chin.
ThermiRF is a non-surgical technology that works through radiofrequency energy to tighten the skin, reducing the appearance of jowls or sagging skin.
The GENIUS™ technology pairs two of the latest non-surgical, minimally-invasive treatments — radiofrequency energy (RF) and microneedling – to stimulate collagen growth and tighten the skin.
